As a provider, I will utilize a program that will facilitate the physical, cognitive, grammar structure, and creative aptitudes of infant/pre-schoolers. The implementation of activities and various resources encourage the "oneness" of a child. Through the timely and suitable learning strategies of the four Functional Areas below, I will collectively demonstrate my ability to meet Standard II.
The day of the field trip teachers and children will walk, they can engage in a conversation about the natural world around them. They can talk about what they think they will find at the pumpkin patch. The teacher can ask children to think back on how a pumpkin grows and expand on their ideas. As they are crossing the street the teacher will explain the importance of looking both ways and holding on to a parent or adult’s hand. They can also talk to them about stranger danger and the importance to not speak to anyone they do not know. The teacher can also explain procedures if they ever do encounter situation like this. The teacher can document children responses to review when they are back in the classroom. Some, vocabulary words that will be used are: pumpkin patch and farmer. Last, the teacher can print out pictures that were taken and create a book to place in the
Veterans Day is distinct from most holidays. It is something that should hold true to everyone’s heart. No matter if you personally are a veteran or not, chances are you know someone that is. On November 11th, we celebrate all the wonderful things that military veterans have done for us in protecting our country. The United States set aside this day to honor our veterans, however we should honor them as much and as often as possible.
Throughout my life, I have participated in a lot of activities and have had several
Being a pre-service training educator, specific goals and objectives should be set to achieve educator’s own educational philosophy. The Educational philosophy is an individual statement of educators’ guiding principles about the education-related
Lynsie and I went to Washington Irving Elementary School every Thursday this semester from 8:45 until 9:45 in the mornings. While at the school, we worked with a first-grade student named Reid.
“So you’ll read to him from one of your books, and he’ll ask to see the pictures. When he looks at the pictures, he’ll get so excited he’ll want to draw one of his own.” This quote is from If You Give a Mouse a Cookie by Laura Numeroff, and my first memory of exposure to the written word. My parents would read this to me at night before going to bed. This is when I realized that reading and writing are important pieces of the life puzzle, and are very important in building a strong foundation. Even the mouse knew it was important and would be hungry for more. But in today’s society actual hand-written books are being replaced with virtual literature. The information is still the heart of media, but the presentation is very different,
I would use this day to allow the students to have independent work and practice time to work on the different properties that we studied during the week. I would have 4-5 activities picked out and ready for the students to work on. The first activity that I would have the students work on is an instructional math game on the laptops. The game is from Math Blaster and explains to students that a+b=b+a (commutative property), and then provides an example of this with numbers; (example- 3+6=9 and 6+3=9 or 9-6=3). Students would also be able to do an instructional computer game on the Associative property of addition. Students would learn and become familiar with the Order of Operations and understand that they must do the work that is in the parentheses before continuing with the remainder of the problem. Another fun activity that the students could do for independent practice is ‘Fact Family Homes’. For this activity, students would be given three numbers; 2, 5, and 7; they would practice the addition first- 2+5=7 and 5+2=7 and then the subtraction- 7-2=5 and 7-5=2. The teacher would make six of these little homes on a worksheet and have different numbers and equations for the students to solve. One more activity that I would have the students work on to help retain the Commutative property of addition is a cut and paste worksheet. For this worksheet, students would have 8 treasure chests with an equation in them; for example, 4+3 and they would need to cut and paste which equation from the bottom was equal to the one listed above in the chest. (4+3=3+4). Students would then be able to color the different treasure chest. A worksheet that focuses on the Associative property of addition that the students can work on, would be a worksheet that has twelve equations and uses arrows to identify which part of the
The first lesson I chose was Power of Language for Infants and Toddlers. Each lesson taught how to build relationships, language, and every word builds a healthy brain. It taught how to respond to a child in a positive way, there are 5 elements to the responses.
What I admire most in the field of Occupational Therapy is that I get to make a profound difference in people 's lives. It is one of few careers where individuals get an opportunity to assist patients interpersonally, and help them achieve their goals with activities of daily living. What brings me a feeling of accomplishment and inner enlightenment is the opportunity to give people the chance to grow or start over. This train of thought arose when my grandfather had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, perhaps one of the most lethal carcinomas in existence. This period of time was rather challenging for myself, taking on the responsibility of assisting my virtually immobile grandfather. Given the fact that my grandfather exhibited severe
Being immersed into the inner city is something not only urban ministry majors should experience, but all Christ followers. The many things we experienced during the weekend taught me a lot and helped further prepare me for my own ministry in an urban setting. Experiences such as the charter school, Beast of the Beats, CDC, talking to a homosexual pastor, and Tabernacle Revival Church made me feel a wide mix of emotions. Many times during the trip I felt so confirmed that this is I am suppose to focus my work for the Lord. On the contrary, there were times I wondered what I am getting myself into.
The period of time that I will be reviewing is coming from Mrs. Porter’s first and second grade ELL classroom. Pseudonyms will be in place for all students and teachers present in this description and story. On this particular day I was to help out at a literacy station. Stations are a regular routine in this classroom for all subjects, and the students really do enjoy this part of the day. It breaks up learning into different activities that are both individual practice and group work. On this day, I felt a little stressed and worried for Mrs. Porters students. The 4 children I was working with at this station were assigned a work sheet where they were to write “are big” or “is big” in the sentences below. Mrs. Porters class is extremely
In Trenton New Jersey the PNC Foundation is trying to build children’s education. “Children from low income families hear as many as 30 million fewer words than their more affluent peers by age 3” (Rojas).The PNC Foundation is trying easier ways to help children with there education. For example, the organization brings children to museums. “The museum concludes story time groups, actives and learning sessions to teach kids how to talk and read” (Rojas). Also this program is trying to get families more involved with helping their children’s education. The families can help their kids with the lesson they were taught, or parents can play and communicate with their kids. The PNC Foundation wants teachers to teach the students challenging vocabulary
Children need a wealth of practical and creative experiences in solving mathematical problems. Mathematics education is aimed at children being able to make connections between mathematics and daily activities; it is about acquiring basic skills, whilst forming an understanding of mathematical language and applying that language to practical situations. Mathematics also enables students to search for simple connections, patterns, structures and rules whilst describing and investigating strategies. Geometry is important as Booker, Bond, Sparrow and Swan (2010, p. 394) foresee as it allows children the prospect to engage in geometry through enquiring and investigation whilst enhancing mathematical thinking, this thinking encourages students to form connections with other key areas associated with mathematics and builds upon students abilities helping students reflect
Participating in this role play was much easier to handle. Especially when it comes down to me playing in character. I learned with the first set of role plays that I am good at getting assigned a role and playing it well. I like that the scenario was picked out and it was myself and partner responsibility to make the whole role play come together playing the roles of social workers. What we did first was sat down together to figure out the family in which we had. We went through every question on the list answering them together. While we were understanding the family and there strengthens, we were also figuring out ways we could best assist the family. Then we research what intervention method we could best use for the family we had. Once
