Critical analysis of the Franklin series by Paulette Bourgeois A children’s story is the first step a child is introduced to in terms of reading and literature. These books give children enjoyment, develop their feelings and imagination. It might also help children resolve problems by creatively portraying the issue in the book and also by teaching how to deal with it in an entertaining way. For example in Franklin Fibs, Paulette Bourgeois innovatively explains how lying can be bad and how it can impact a child. This probably teaches the childmoral values and also entertains them .
The fact that nursery rhymes are more about rhythm and sonority of words than their actual meaning could explain why phonological awareness skills are easily enhanced by nursery rhymes. Children enjoy the sonority and rhythm of words in nursery rhymes in spite of their incomplete, or even poor, knowledge of their meaning (De Santis, 1986; Zachok, 1992). When their attention is shifted away from the meaning, children can focus more easily on the phonological features of words (van Kleeck, 1995). In fact, the semantic features of words can interfere with their phonological
Teachers should encourage students to study their handwriting and be self critical. They should analyze common faults in writing by writing down several common faults on the board. Teacher can give students a small reference chart to serve as a constant reminder for the cursive scrip in upper and lower case.

Tiffani and Mrs. Tivia, they are so helpful and make my job much easier. We work as a team to educate two-years-old children on basic life learn lessons.

Mrs. Tivia group was Science: teach them their colors, the weather, and have different items to teach and describe how things feel.
This book provides a very thorough, methodical discussion of how young children can develop literacy through play activities within a literacy-rich environment that has been designed with purpose. The role of early childhood teachers, in such an environment, is to discover teachable moments during children’s play and other child-centered experiences and take advantage of those moments to facilitate the children’s literacy development. Chapter One reviews the role of various types of “play” in children’s development and defines the developmentally appropriate practices, which are: understanding children’s patterns of growth to inform knowledge about learning and development; knowing each child’s individual strengths, needs, and interests; and knowing each child’s sociocultural context for living and growing. The different types of play include exploratory play, where play activities are repeated to affirm their mastery of their new abilities; constructive play, where objects are created out of play material; and dramatic play, where children engage in pretend roles using objects, actions, and words.
Known to many, life is full of challenging adversities. May that be a cloudy day for a young child wanting to play outside or being fired from a job as an adult, everyone leaves the situation with new knowledge, and maybe a couple funny memories too. It was first grade, the prime year of recess, counting, and learning to read. This particular day was mundane because our usual teacher had not been there and instead, we were stuck with a basic substitute.
By taking notes, it will help you not miss anything and that way you can write everything down the right way. Running records are so descriptive, so it is essential to be as detailed as possible. I liked how the book had a section about running records because it gave me an insight into what I am going to have to do when I go and observe a child. I also like how it gave examples that way I know how to do one correctly. It was
Additionally, Arias et al. (2015) state that the use of songs increase children's participation when repeating the vocabulary used during the classes. These multimedia tools allow students to learn more effectively because they are involved and encouraged to participate in class, exploring the materials and establishing a communication with their environment. This is evidenced when the in-service teacher expressed that songs were the strategies that children liked and enjoyed the most
This book is very entertaining and would appeal to children as well as adults. The Day the Crayons Quit is a witty story about a little boy who discovers the crayons in his crayon box are missing and notes have been left, all written by an individual crayon to, for the most part, express some grievance with the amount of work or the kind of work they do while coloring. This book would be a fantastic book to use across multiple grade levels. It would be a great way to discuss colors, how everything has a color, how color is used, as well as point of view, voice, and persuasive letter writing.
CD 452 Professional Development Reflection The first lesson I chose was Power of Language for Infants and Toddlers.

CS II c: Wordless books- This activity helps infants/ preschoolers to start from the beginning, understanding basic story structure.

The ethos used in the excerpt incites emotions of dejection, curiosity, and ludicrosity. The authors give identities to the children in the story, making the children harder to disregard. The authors include experiences and event s that ate relative to that of a normal everyday person, making them more emphatic to the narrative. Throughout the narrative, the authors give small anecdotes of several children belonging to the Baltimore school systems.
I am currently working with a first grade ESL student, and she is learning the alphabet and sounds. Mrs. Marasigan instructed me to practice the alphabet with the student and provided the flash cards. During the lesson, I pointed to the cards and asked the student “what letter is this” or “what sound does this letter make”? The student knew 24 letters and confused U and Y for V. The student will need more practice on the sounds because she produced the J sound for G, C sound for S and Q sound for W. The short term goal for the first-grade student recognizes the entire alphabet with the correspond sound.
