Classroom Observations Mrs. Canada is the first grade teacher that I observed, and the subject that she was teaching was reading. She had planned well-organized power points and crafting materials in advance, so she was prepared for the lesson. The two times I observed, the lesson that was being taught at both times was reading. Children in the classroom used a lot of previous knowledge for the lesson. Each lesson was different and had different instructions, but the material was the same. On the first day that I observed the students had to complete a short worksheet. Half of the piece of paper was a short story called, “Sam the Snowmen”, and the other half was questions the child had to complete about the story. The teacher made them read the story three times, and to keep track of that number, the students filled in a star after each time they read it. It was also pajama day at school. On the second day of my observation the students had to write their name on a start and then cut out the star. After they were finished they made birthday cards for their principle. That day their school theme was Broadway/Disney characters, and all of the students were dressed up. They were so adorable, and so confident on what they wore. After the students were done making the cards, Mrs. Canada read them a …show more content…
During both observation days there was no behavior problems. It was a well obtained class, and I am excited to continue participating in this classroom. One student during the classes library visit came up and gave me a big hug. He would not let go for the longest time. This class has a special place in my heart and I only been in there two times. I felt that the children were very well behaved than most children. It was a bit shocking. All of them were extremely respectful of their teacher. I am excited to continue observing this class the next couple weeks. Being in an actual classroom makes me super excited for my

Overall, this learning experience has taught me how to treat each student individually but also teach concepts as a whole group. Each student has different needs and although they are all learning the same concept they come to mastery in very different ways. As a future teacher I am thankful this experience has taught me how to help each of my students in the way they need best by incorporating different instructional methods and different ways of
While I was completing my field experience, I was working in the afterschool room every other Tuesday and Thursday. The grades of the twenty-six students ranged from first grade to fourth grade and there were more females than males in this class. My two mentors, Kelly and Brooke, were awesome, showing me how to keep up with these older children while also keeping peace within the chaotic classroom. While these children were from Watkinsville, they really were not from a low SES background, but there were many instances that the children would get into arguments and bring up someone else’s family
When they were finish meeting the student went back to write their final copy. A successful lesson is a lesson where my students are fully involved, listening and interacting with the and each other regarding the material presented. The teacher lessons are thought-provoking and fun at the same time because she believe the students want to have fun and that they learn more effectively when learning is a pleasure, not a chore. The true measure of a good lesson, however, is when I can look at tests and quizzes on the material and see a good level of understanding and comprehension on the student’s
I mainly learned and observed and took notes, instead. I found it somewhat difficult because I noticed that the OT did not cater to each child’s abilities. I had worked with the children for 8 hours a day as their previous teacher, instead of working with them for only 1 – 2 hours a day, as the OT did. Therefore, I knew the children’s weaknesses and strengths and what they should have been working harder or less
I was fortunate to be placed in Ms. Gohil’s classroom because her classroom was dedicated to students with special needs. This allowed me to experience first hand what an actual special education teacher does during a typical class day. I also was able to see paraprofessional work with the students on constant bases, not like my previous experience where the paraprofessional would only visit the child for approximately 20 - 30 mins per class period. What I also like was that I witnessed various behavioral changes from students and was able to see in real time how the teacher and paraprofessional handled these behaviors. At first, I did not understand some of the techniques that were being used, but then I would ask Ms. Gohil questions and
Participants in this study consisted of 14 undergraduate students from a research methods psychology laboratory held on Wednesdays from 1:30pm to 3:30pm during the spring 2018 semester at Simon Fraser University. There were __ males and __ females ranging from the ages of __ to __ years, with a mean age of __. The participants were randomly assigned to either the experimental or control group. The experimental group was given the yellow paper condition, different from the control group who were given the white paper condition. __ males and __ females took part in the yellow paper condition with a total of __ participants.
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.

Miss Hannan has grown as an educator and continued to strengthen her teaching skills during this semester.
The first day I went there was a student crying and Mr.Mikalov pulled him outside to talk to him in private because some kids don’t like talking about their feelings in front of everybody. While the students were doing their work I had a chance to walk around the classroom, I saw at least five rules in big letters in the back of the room, which reminded me off Hary Wong and his teachings off rules and procedures. After the bell rings and they go to math. The teacher starts the lesson by asking the class what they know about the subject and go from there. The teacher asks the students to turn and talk to the person next to them about what they learned or explain it to someone who doesn’t understand it.
I did most of my observation in a sixth through eighth grade classroom, however I did get some experience in a third grade classroom and a second grade classroom. I think that one of the concepts that I observed the most was that there are many different ways and curriculums to teach literacy. I saw an example of a basal school, an example of daily five, but I did not actually get to see any reader’s workshop, which was disappointing because that was the majority of what we spent time working on in class (and my personal favorite thus far). I did get to see a little bit of a writer’s workshop, it was very brief but was about narratives in a comic strip form. It was interesting to see a genre applied to the writing, similar to what we practiced in class.
The classroom that I will be observing is a Preschool classroom at KinderCare Learning Center in Bartlett, Illinois. The teacher I will be observing over the next period of time is Laura Sturgulewski. She has worked at KinderCare for 8 years, mostly in the 2 year-old room until fall of 2013, when she took the lead teaching position of the Preschool classroom. Her classroom mainly has 3 year-olds, but on occasion has a mix of 4 year-olds and transitioning 2 year-olds. The number of students in her class depends on the day, because they are a child care center some students have a part time schedule, unlike an elementary school where children attend every day.
According to Lewis (2009) in his book “Understanding Pupil Behaviour: Classroom Management Techniques For Teachers” mentioned that there are some effects if the teachers don’t know about the students’ characteristics such as stress and Post-Guru Syndrom. Stress happens when they feel unable to maintain an classroom in which students can get on with their work and teachers can teach without unnecessary interruption, it is usually part of failure teacher in managing the classroom misbehavior of students and Post-Guru Syndrom happens when the teachers become inconsistent to implement the appropriate technique in teaching for students and finally
Within my observation of the classroom; I was able to see how the teacher interacted with the students, how gender role played a role within the students, and lastly see the how the students interacted. The first thing I observed and saw was how the teacher interacted with the students as she taught. I noticed that often she did not encourage the students to do better; she would just tell them to re-look at their papers and fix their papers if
