Ms. Rodrigues arrange the classroom setting too create a learning environment depending on the children interest following the creative curriculum. The teachers always accommodate the learning areas, for the students to make free choice, but the teachers also guide their young learners during play. On April 23, 2015 the observation took about one hour, upon my arrival children were finishing their breakfast, and choosing learning areas to play. In this classroom the teachers practice free choice, which provide students the opportunity to choose their learning area of interest. This is crucial in early child development setting because it provides students confidence about themselves, and encourage them to think to make decisions.
I enjoyed working with the students in this classroom as many of the centers were game based which established a fun way for the students to learn. While in the first grade classroom, I was able to form a great relationship with my mentor teacher that allowed me to be very hands on with the students throughout the semester. Among many things, I learned how to run an educational circle and calendar time, worked with small groups of students to improve reading, provided practice spelling tests to students, assisted students in developing their writing abilities, and implemented the class’s behavior management plan. While I worked with the fifth grade
In this training, I learned about the overall K-3 FAP as well as more in-depth information about the Problem Solving Domain. My Cooperating Educator was the presenter for the training and she trained all K-1 elementary school teachers in the school district on the K-3 FAP. I learned that 1st-3rd grade teachers are going to be expected to record data on a progression of skills for 6 domains that reflect the whole child, not just academics. These domains are perseverance in assigned activities, problem solving, emotion regulation, reading comprehension: monitoring meaning, school related vocabulary, and writing. I also learned that additional resources are on the DPI
Because right now, both schools and workplaces are structured to meet the needs of extroverted children in schools, and an extroverted employee in the case of workplaces. The goal is to restructure both of them to maximize the talents of both extroverts and introverts. I’m going to use chapter 1 as an example to describe the overall text structure and writing expectations of the book. The writing is very thought-provoking, because it
I believe this type of well-organized schedule helps the children to know what is expected of them. Also, the hands on approach between the students and the teacher allows for individualized learning for the children. Finally, I found their purposely using open ended questions to encourage the children into thinking for themselves during the Choice Time to be an excellent teaching method. 2. Provide a descriptive personal or professional observation that is similar to the concept you selected from the video (use initials in place of a child’s name).
Theories that as future educator will need to be understood and explored. Some if not all these theory’s will be used in the classroom. Vygotsky, Piaget, Bruner, and Bloom all set out to establish a foundation for education, whether through building skills such as pre-reading, language, vocabulary, and numeracy. It becomes the educators job to implement theories into the classroom for children's cognitive development. The theorist discussed in this paper, have had made a profound effect on
Using the objectives and strategies listed in the IEP and the 504 plans helps her to provide a safe and inclusive learning environment for all of her students. In addition, Smith promotes a responsive classroom technique. Her students participate in daily class meetings, in which they debrief the “highs and lows” of their day. Furthermore, each week her students participate in scripted social and emotional learning lessons called, “Second Step Lessons.” These lessons teach students to focus on empathy, impulse control, and conflict resolution. The activities practiced in Smith’s classroom stem from collaboration sessions with fellow teachers at Sample
This article “Terrific Teaching Tips” by Laurel Borgia and Carol Owles, with contributions by Julie Frisch, Louise Stearns, and Lindsay Craig, are all inspired teachers looking to improve effective strategies to produce better instruction methods. Educators are constantly researching to discovery how to create a better setting which benefit the students in acquiring learning skill. By motivating a childs mind with the use of manipulatives in order to better grasp understanding. What do good readers do? They discuss what they have read, what better way to use manipulatives to engage in class discussion.
I believe this is an ideal classroom setup. I have also included other things that should be considered while creating and setting up your classroom. Resources, pupils’ works and materials are placed near the door of the classroom so pupils can get what they need as they enter for the day. This place is also ideal for any handouts as pupils come in during the morning and from recess. Setting up a routine of having pupils gather their own work will promote responsibility on their part.
Qualitative data was collected through interviews, focus groups, student work, and a teacher research journal. After analyzing the data, it was revealed that multi-sensory education can lead to student motivation as well as provide an opportunity to use technology and make connections to the outside world. The findings of the study indicated that multi-sensory education can also help teachers to access students' needs and aid in fostering a positive classroom environment. Finally, using a teaching approach that targets the senses promotes the development of a student-centered classroom, and can encourage students, who may have been silent within traditional classroom to emerge and have a voice within the multi-sensory classroom. Teaching through multi-sensory approach has many implications for new teachers, such as this teacher researcher, who are seeking ways to actively and meaningfully engage students within the
