The students range in age from ten to eleven years old. All students have an affiliation with the US military and have experienced multiple moves including transitions to new schools. Instructional Sequence This introductory mathematics unit on the metric system is comprised of seven lessons that should take approximately eleven hours of instruction and practice to complete.
Program modifications include special seating arrangements, refocusing and redirection, check for understanding and a copy of class notes. A vision consultation service is provided once a month for 45 minutes in the classroom setting. The current evaluation included an assessment of seven areas of cognitive processing, through the
In Louisiana, I worked mornings as the intervention specialist for Reading and Math at the public middle elementary school (3rd and 4th) while teaching 7 and 8th grade Math in the afternoons at the local private school and eventually covering the art classes when the teacher was on maturity leave. While in Louisiana,
Each gym class lasts 25 minutes and two classes have gym together at one time. During the 70 minutes I’m there, 8 classes have gym, which is more than a 140 students. The age range of children varies from Kindergarteners who are 5-6 to 2nd graders who are 7-8. Most often children of different grades and ages have class together
During the observation portion of this assignment, I observed in a fifth grade ELL classroom. The teacher in charge of this class is Anissa Rose. She has been an ELL teacher for many years and teaches students in kindergarten through the 8th grade. This paper will discuss whether or not the students were aware of the class language and content objective, how the teacher instructed the content and language objectives, the type of group configurations, and how the teacher accommodated for different ELP levels.
In Finland, they have a daycare and a nursery till they are 6 years old. The daycare and nursery prepare the children for regular school till they are 16 years old. The United States has a preschool and also a Kindergarten class for 4-6-year-olds. Then the kids go on to 1st grade all they way to 12 grade where they will graduate and go off to college. The United States junior high and high school switch classes throughout the school day.
Textbooks are then written in accordance with the TEKS for the different grade levels. (Source: http://tea.texas.gov/) Children observed: I observed a Kindergarten classroom of 19 children (10 boys and 9 girls) on 29 April, 2016 for three hours. The teacher to student ratio of this class was in accordance with the state guidelines which requires the teacher state recommended that for 5 year olds, the ratio should not exceed 1:22 and for 6-8 year olds, the teacher to student ratio should not exceed 1:26. The age group
Children who are unsuccessful early are more likely to start disliking reading and avoid it all together (Campbell et al., 2008). When children aren’t successful at reading from early on, they’re at a substantially higher risk of being unable to read at grade level (Campbell et al., 2008). Multisensory Instruction in Education Multisensory instruction started in the 1920’s originating from neuropsychiatrist and pathologist, Dr. Samuel Orton’s search to find instructional methods that would aid in helping students with dyslexia learn. Orton partnered with educator and psychologist, Anna Gillingham to start planning a teaching approach intended to provide assistance to students struggling
Special education is a discipline marked by a lot of controversy and which elicits a heated debate among education administrators, parents, and teachers. Full inclusion, which is the belief that disabled students should be incorporated into regular classrooms, regardless of whether they meet conventional curricular standards or not, is the major point of controversy. Full inclusion embraces the idea that disabled students should undertake regular education and only be excluded in a class when important services cannot be offered to them (Nelson, Palonsky, & McCarthy, 2010). This paper seeks to delve into the arguments surrounding full inclusion and establish their validity. It will achieve this by highlighting the arguments for and against
Many children at school are capable of hiding their learning difficulties by steering clear from reading aloud or writing very little (Reid 2013, p13).Not to mention, the Report of the Task force on Dyslexia (2001) states learning difficulties from dyslexia occurs across the lifespan of a person and can vary from mild to severe at different ages (Report of the Task Force on Dyslexia, 2001). It is extremely vital for teachers to be fully aware and trained in the area of dyslexia. Teacher’s use of differentiation in their subjects in the classroom is a strong fundamental in order to meet the needs of a student with a learning difficulty like
After all the stations, it was time for the seventh graders to change back into their school clothes and leave gym class. The teacher showed the kids seven different ways on how to grow your muscles. At the end of the day, the seventh graders learned about the different exercises that anyone can use to maintain or grow their
With greatest indication from third and fourth grade teachers who have shown evidence that these standards are being implemented more consistently through the delivery of more project based, inquiry based instruction in these classrooms. It is clear that kindergarten through second grade teachers are struggling with the implementing writing into the curriculum as reflected in principal and Instructional Coaches’ observational notes and logs. Teachers in all grades kindergarten through fourth are in considerable need of training and proper implementation of high quality literacy centers that can pinpoint specific skill deficits for students in the area of Reading Language Arts and quality centers that promote writing across the curriculum. Teachers also need to be using data more efficiently to drive their classroom instruction and create differentiated instruction for those students who are in need of

On Wednesday, September 30th I observed Mrs. Bangham’s three to six year old classroom. The observation was from 8:00 to 10:00, at Greensboro Montessori School. Since they combine different ages I focused more on the five and six year olds that would be in a normal Kindergarten class. I learned so much about Montessori schools and how they work in the two hours I observed.
