Puzzles, board games, legos, blocks, tinker toys that challenge children’s skills and allowed for growth. Teachers were aware of each child’s developmental level and adjusted their environment to accommodate to their needs. Teachers would sit on the ground with the children to assist or encourage age appropriate
My observation of Mrs. Seeley, a SpEd teacher at Sigourney High School, was very interesting and inspirational. The way that she connected to every student and morphed her teaching around each student’s disability was remarkable. I was truly amazed, especially with the kids who had ADD or ADHD because they were calm, collected, and well behaved. When, usually, they are bouncing off of the walls, cannot focus, and don 't listen to directions well. They were all on task and did everything that she asked them to; this showed me how much that they respected her.
Here she learned from the teachings of Erik Erikson and Ruth Benedict. She came to the conclusion that the best way for children to learn was through memorization and self-directed learning. This creates schools that are a place to learn and a community. I feel that her view on school is very appropriate. Children especially younger children need to explore their world through play.
Barbie can also be something that teaches young girls that they have to look a certain way and many girls and even women are impacted by the image of Barbie. Barbie is a good role model for children in many ways. She lets kids have an imagination and play games with her and her friends. Barbie also helps kids learn how to do hair and style clothes. Mostly though, Barbie’s many careers teach children that they can do anything they set their minds
As Kalina is in 3rd grade and has been in school since the age of 3, she was able to identify each letter without difficulty. In the Phonemic Segmentation Test Form (A) the student will detach the sound of a word to ensure they are ready for phonics instruction by listening to a spoken words and separating the word by the initial, medial, and final by saying the sound. Kalina show no delay in being able to reinstate the sounds of each word section as she has been in speech therapy since the age of 2. Kalina is also able to pronounce words along with the spelling beyond her grade level. The last assessment in the Phonemics Awareness Test is Phonics assessment which is the ability for students to pronounce a word while using the initial consonant sounds as well as using the correct common rimes syllabication, affixes (prefixes and suffixes) and r-controlled
As defined by McWhorter, an independent learner is one who is “willing to spend time thinking about a topic and able to pull ideas together easily” (39) and Hermione clearly demonstrated this. From our very first scene with her, we learn about her independence. When she meets Harry and Ron for the first time on the train she says, “I’ve learned all our course books by heart, of course, I just hope it will be enough…” (Rowling 105-106). Hermione, as shown, takes her classes very seriously and prepares on her own to insure her knowledge of all topics. On page two hundred and nineteen, she brings Harry and Ron “an enormous old book” that she got from the library
For this field experience assignment I decided to use a students from Mrs. Carrillo’s 2nd grade class who wishes to go by the name of “Elsa” for this activity. Elsa is a student who is still currently learning English, and whose primary language spoken and written at home is Spanish. Mrs. Carrillo expressed that she is falling a little behind in most subjects because of the language barrier but she is definitely progressing and improving as the school year moves forward. As far as the SOLMO chart, I would like to talk about all the categories and where I would place Elsa on this graphic organizer and why. For comprehension, I would say that Elsa is at a level 3.
Cochlear implants have been proven to develop spoken language, as reported in May 1998 to the Advisory Council of the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders: "It has now been demonstrated that the long-term benefits of cochlear implants in children are not limited to speech recognition but extend into dramatically improved language learning and language skills." (Tucker, Bonnie Poitras. 1998) In a recent survey, parents of 176 implanted children perceived: 44 percent of the children had greater than 70 percent open speech discrimination (using sound alone with no visual clues), 61 percent of the children had greater than 50 percent open speech discrimination, and 84 percent of the children had greater than 40 percent
I learned a lot about myself as a teacher and how to help these students individually without neglecting the rest of the class while tending to their needs. It wasn't difficult for me to walk by Kiden's desk and praise her for what she was doing, or give her praise during whole group interaction. However, this meat the world to her and boosted her self confidence in the skill and concepts that were being taught. In the same way I was able to help Kiden, I was also able to help Pau and Georgia with the things they needed such as reading the instructions to them one-on-one or checking in on them throughout the assessment just to make sure they were on the right track. Overall, this learning experience has taught me how to treat each student individually but also teach concepts as a whole group.
He could use complete sentences and more than 4 words in its sentences. As the article, “2-Year-Old Speech and Language Skills,” (2016), explains that kids of the age of two should be able to understand at least 50% of what your child is saying and it should be using different words, and make different sentences and follow simple directions giving verbally. An example of this could be fast mapping which is defined as the process of learning something new by only seen it one time and be able to do it (Rathus, 2010 pg 174). An example of this was when Ricardo learn the song that the teacher sings every time the kids arrive to the center that calls the name of each kid. Rapidly he sing the song to the little girl who took away the playdough from him.
We had such a relationship that she wrote a recommendation letter for me when I was applying for scholarships. It had been over eight years since she taught me but because of the impact she made on my life we stayed in contact and she knew of every club and every position I ever attained in high school. Mrs. Mackey was definitely functioning at the stage four level of teaching and she was a
As a result of their work, Helen went on to Radcliffe College and despite her own bad eyes Sullivan helped her with her studies there. Sullivan spelled class lectures into Helen’s hands and spent hours translating information from textbooks for Helen. Thanks to Sullivan the result was that Helen became the first blind and deaf person to graduate from
Over the years, I have been taught discipline and endurance, which ultimately led to my academic success. Since the age of four, I have attended various math and writing classes, closing the initial gap between me and my classmates. Also, I spent my eighth-grade year at BASIS Ahwatukee, similar to the KIPP Academy mentioned in Outliers, where teachers drill academic proficiency into the students’ minds. As a middle schooler, I took eight classes a day, three of which were required science courses. These circumstances represent the “rice paddy” analogy where you can use grit and diligence to wipe away any disadvantage.
Her current scores on reading assessments are 70%,(novel assessment), 78% (reading assessment/English mid-term) 58%(informational text;biology), 39% (history). She is able to answer literal questions with 80% and above averages, inferential and analytical questions are at approximately 75% accuracy.
