When doing this task I made sure to use real life example for the words, so they could get a better understand of the word. Once they start to recognize the words it was easier for them to spell and comprehend the meaning. I word have to direct the class to pull ou the book and make sure they were reading after they finish their work. Also, I went of many of the kids wam ups and exits tickets. Activity 7 During my time at the school I had to help students log in to there math program.
Answer: Shapes are in my home, in school, on the playground, in the store, etc. Opening: The teacher will take 2 minutes to read the book The Greedy Triangle by Marilyn Burns to the students. This attention grabber will not only focus the children’s attention, but it will also activate students’ prior knowledge about geometric shapes. The teacher will pass out the pattern blocks to each student at the conclusion of the book. Guided Practice: • Prior to the lesson, shapes cut out of construction paper, glue, scissors, string, hangers, and miscellaneous items have been placed at each table of students.
While this question does deal more with vocabulary, making it more understandable that so few students answered it correctly; I decided to work in activities that would continue building our source analysis skills nevertheless. One way I did this was during our lesson covering the Plessy v. Ferguson court case. I had students read both a primary and a secondary source and then answer questions that tested not only their knowledge and comprehension skills with respect to the sources, but also their evaluation and application skills as well. In general, this pre-assessment allowed me to better understand where my classes stood with regards to the subject matter at hand. The knowledge I gleaned from this activity resulted in a more tailored and focused learning experience for my students which met them where they were instead of assuming what they did or didn’t know.
Their evaluation sheets are based on the CELDT test, and it evaluates reading, writing, speaking and listening, and the general score. The school tested all levels in the entire district, and the Aides spent weeks doing these test around the district. Monica said she is advantage related to the other aide in the district because she stays in the Strawberry Point School the entire time, and then she have chances to talk with the classroom teachers, and share and collect information about the ELL children. She can give them extra material for the ELL students and hear from the classroom teacher what she should emphasis her lessons for specific groups. For example, the kindergarten kids that I observed are in the classroom that I used to work.
I am currently working with a first grade ESL student, and she is learning the alphabet and sounds. Mrs. Marasigan instructed me to practice the alphabet with the student and provided the flash cards. During the lesson, I pointed to the cards and asked the student “what letter is this” or “what sound does this letter make”? The student knew 24 letters and confused U and Y for V. The student will need more practice on the sounds because she produced the J sound for G, C sound for S and Q sound for W. The short term goal for the first-grade student recognizes the entire alphabet with the correspond sound. The long term goal is spelling simple words such as cat and dog.
It was in 3rd period in my 10th grade year, when I first experienced school through a different lense. As a project for my health class, my teacher had us make a lesson plan explaining the topic individually assigned to the whole class. It wasn’t until after my presentation that I realized that I’m a very heavy tactile learner. As described in the essay “Knowing the Learner” by Gayle Gregory and Carolyn Chapman, a tactile learner learns best from handling materials, being involved, and writing or drawing. In my project, I put myself in the students shoes and made a lesson plan that I would have wanted presented to me.
I also agree with Cwikla when she tells about the precurricular understanding. In this she states you as a teacher should encourage the children to include mixed numbers and be able to carry on a conversation about the problem given. The younger students were able to look at a picture and tell what was going on in the picture and tell the observer what they can see. Most were able to identify the fraction and tell that there were some left over and some were being taken away. The younger students were also able to use more mathematical language than the older
I have made many connections with MAT 139 this semester. When I was in the tutor program we were required to get some field experience by helping students. I chose to help three and four year olds with math. Although the material was adding, I was able to apply the skills I learned in the tutor program to teach the kids. My teacher in MAT 139 would show us multiple ways to solve a problem so when teaching the children I would use more than one method to get them to learn the subject matter (Hammond, pg 2).
question she would ask her students was to recall the steps to dividing. Visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learners were provided with YouTube videos displaying the steps of how to divide, counting songs, and worksheets to use during the lesson. In order to have the students fully engaged in the learning the teacher allowed each student to participate in the lesson and allowed them to help each other out when struggling with a question. She also engaged each child to participate on the smart board. Periodically, she did have to remind her students about the rules and the consequences that arise from not following them.
Teachers are giving you pratice test after practice test trying to get you ready for the real one when they should be trying to teach you what you need to know for those tests. In the classroom,there are more opportunities for people to learn at their own pace and in their own way,but when taking all of the test they are required to take,it makes it harder and harder for that to happen,”It has been suggested that performance assessments, popularized as an important component in educational reform movements, will reduce differences among groups because they provide students with hands-on opportunities to demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of how to solve problems rather than requiring students to simply recall facts” (Shavelson 4). When people are in any classroom setting they would much rather learn things to help them in their future they just recall facts that have no relevance to their lives or career choices. Preparing and studying for a test that revolve around topics that have no purdance in your life as well as a waste of time and money,yes in school you have to learn some things that you most likely will never use but that comes with being in school,but having a whole test revolve around things you will not need is just a waste. So why waste all that when you could use all that time and money for things that
The teacher’s challenges these students in different core class areas by giving them instructional resources that go beyond the typical curriculum. All the assignments went along with the classroom material for their grade level. The teacher used curriculum compact, these students have already mastered the work in the classroom. She took them out of the classroom and gave them assignments that made them do more in depth thinking, this also made them think on a higher level. The assignments were very elaborate, which made the students really stop and think.
