An educator’s mindset should always be to think about the different levels of abilities of the children and how to get them to personally grasp what is being taught based on their learning needs. The lesson activities from the Germ/Health lesson was straight forward and clear. The students are to draw a picture of what they think a germ looks like to create a monster so they can share with the class. Then they will write a sentence of how to catch germs based on their understanding of the teacher’s definition and the book that was read aloud. In the Class Profile there is a student that is visually impaired and another that has hearing aids.
Gloria Merrier, a Floridian Math teacher develops a new method to help her students pass the FCAT. She utilizes Math, Dance, Art and Music to encourage her students to learn and captivate the lessons. Additionally, she starts by teaching the lessons which her student might struggle in first instead of the easy lessons. Gloria’s method seems appropriate for all grade levels. It is something that most classroom teachers might use to motivate students.
I started doing my field Experience in Lime Kiln Elementary school where I shadowed Mr. Mikalov, a fifth grade teacher, When I first walked into his classroom it was so colorful and full of artworks, student works and inspirational quotes I felt happy walking into his classroom so I would imagine what a fifth grader would feel like. Mr.Mikalov was very generous in showing me around the classroom where they have their group work, reading area on the rug. He showed me the schedule they follow every week, they do math every day from 12:13 to 12:55 and have lunch every day at 11:26- 12:08 and off course I took a picture of it to know when and what they are doing that time. Mr.Mikalov introduced me to the principal who is very nice and welcomed
I assume she calls them to a certain instrument so they can play a different instrument each time and sit next to someone else because they have a seating chart on the floor. In general, Mrs. Pollard’s class management during discussions involves a lot of taking turns and if someone talks too much or does not let others answer she will ask them to stop. They know these routines because she set them in place when the class first started. Mrs. Pollard told our observation group that the first classes are important because that is when the rules and routines are set up. Her most common classroom management techniques were eye contact, “the look”, and using student
The experimenters included the teachers in the direct assessments to ensure the validity of the research. In that case, the teachers ensured that the researchers collected that they were supposed to collect from the child participant. Jay sat on one of the desks previously described above with his teacher as the other students were engaged in typical classroom activities. The experimenters conducted functional analysis in the room that was equipped with a wide angled video camera. The video camera recorded Jay 's problem behavior such as head hitting, finger biting, loud vocalizations, tailbone hitting, hand clasping and elbow hitting which constituted the dependent variables.
Bethany Hill once stated, “Every child you pass in the hall has a story that needs to be heard, maybe you are the one that needs to hear it.” That quote works because the person might have trouble at home and they might need a counselor to almost let a burden off of their shoulders and tell their story to. Some of the reasons Career Cruising chose being a school counselor for me because I like training and teaching, working with children and providing advice. I am most interested in pursuing a career as a school counselor because of its likeable working conditions, straightforward responsibilities and simple career preparations. School counselors provide information and support to students of all ages. They also help students make great choices
Field Reflection This semester, I was at Waldron Mercy Academy for my field placement. I was able to observe eight different teachers through my 9 weeks of attending field, which I found to be very beneficial to see how other teachers work and manage their classes within the same school. Between those eight teachers, I observed sixth, seventh, and eighth grades language arts, sixth grade social studies, seventh and eighth grade science, and eighth grade Latin/study skills/high school prep class. This upcoming week, for my last week of field, I will be observing a seventh-grade history class. I observed many ways to go about classroom management.
3. Does she understand what the word “more” means? b. Student #2: Anastasia (atypical) Facts Inferences Social/emotional When the teacher asked the students to sit on the carpet for circle time, Anastasia did not follow directions until the teacher spoke specifically to her. 1.
I visited two classes in an p-k through fifth grade elementary school. The teachers will be called Miss P for the preschool and Miss H for the first grade. I chose a four year old boy from the preschool class who will be called Pb and a six year old girl from the first grade who will be called Fg. The two were of different ethnic backgrounds with Fg being african american and Pb being white. This paper will include observations, and comparisons about the children, teachers, classroom environment and whether the naeyc code of ethical conduct was followed.
The students were highly engaged. I could say that the concepts to be learn were explicitly linked to ELLs’ background experience and past learning. I listened to the teacher’s speech and voice projection, it was appropriate (not too slow, not too fast), and she emphasized the importance of being respectful/active listeners. She ensured that each students had sufficient time to respond to her questions, and clarify if a student seemed confused (regarding the objectives). As the students did the group work, Mrs. Carbone foster noticing.
Kids Castle is a before and after school child care program that works together with the Kenosha Unified School District to provide fun educational care to kindergarten through fifth grade students. Our daily job duties as Kids Castle teachers include homework help, organizing activities from crafts to character building and maintaining a communication network with parents. Our background in psychology is necessary for providing quality child care. In order to become a lead teacher, we must complete several child care certification books, but psychology majors waive this requirement because we have already taken classes in child and human development. We often find our job allowing us to apply the skills we learn in psychology.
Motivating kids to become active learns can be challenging, Mrs. Wagoner uses many ways to motivate her students some of the ways include, movement (cooperative learning activities… out of seat), use of the clickers /whiteboard paddles, music, video clips, student collaboration and accountability. Mrs. Wagoner encourage class participation, use of the spinner, random accountability, peer share, plain old volunteering, a thank you for sharing, and positive comments for those who are meeting goals.
He also maintained the class very well during the group activities by previously assigning roles. Roles like timekeeper, table leaders, and recorders. These jobs kept the students on task throughout the entire process and also made them more involved in the learning process. He also created a very positive learning environment by creating little phrases as a class. This is a fun way to have a bond with the students so that they can be involved with the learning process and also know when to move from one activity to the next.
I conducted my observations at Lockport Middle School. Lockport Middle School is currently ranked an A school from the Louisiana Department of Education. Science lessons were observed in sixth, seventh, and eighth grade over the course of a two week period. All three classrooms displayed a positive climate. Students seemed eager to learn and responsive to the teacher’s directions.
