A’STEAM is an afterschool program at 100+ afterschool care facilities, such as YMCA, in Greater Houston Area. This program encourages student grades k-5 with projects and experiments that brings real-life content to the STEAM discipline (CMH). EXXON Mobile Magnificent Movement, EMM3, is another outreach program CMH offers. EMM3 is a math-based academic enrichment program that partnered with 14 area schools that provides hands-on activities and training to teachers. The last outreach program mentioned is the Science Workshop at Edison Middle School.
Biddle and Berliner (2002) offered tentative theories to explain why small classes had impressive effects in the early grades. This was when youngsters were first learning the rules of school and forming ideas about whether they can cope with education. Furthermore, the most frequently cited class size study in the literature is the STAR (Student/Teacher Achievement Ratio) experiment. The Tennessee STAR (experiment began as a pilot in 1984, was mandated in 1985, and was completed in 1990). Pupils entering kindergarten in participating schools were randomly assigned to a small class (13-17), a full size class (22-25), or a full size class with a full time teacher aide.
Following the instruction of the lesson for the day, the teacher will show a video “Middle school Diversity Video”. The video will help the students recognize how each student is different from themselves. 3 minutes 4. The teacher will hand out a worksheet for the students to ask each other questions. 5 minutes.
Class: Pre-Kindergarten (4-Year Old Classroom) Unit: Language Development (Alphabet Word and Picture Match) Teacher: Ms. Zarie Baker Objectives: 1.

Students will talk to themselves and others about what they are “working on,” what they are doing, routines, and events of the day.

Preschools, daycares and childcare centers shared the market for children between the ages of birth to 5 years old. Compound research have correlated the math gains of student in prekindergarten (3 to 5 years old) with their math achievement in middle and high school (Watt, Duncan, Siegler, and Davis-Kean, 2014). Researchers are recommending intervention during these critical years so that students are deviated back towards grade-level proficiency. Therefore, districts across the country are opening their doors to prekindergarten so that Response to Intervention (RtI) can help struggling students turn learning stumbling blocks into developmental stepping stones before enter kindergarten. Defining and understanding the RtI model and its impact on the
On Thursday, March 16, 2017 from 8:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. I observed in the Early Head Start classroom at the YWCA in Asheville. The children were ages one and two years old and there were two teachers in the classroom. When the children first arrived in the classroom, I noticed the teacher greeting each child by their name. I also noticed throughout the day that the teachers would call the children by their name when talking to them, instructing them, or when trying to get their attention.
Each student diagnosed under the IDEA act will get an Individualized Education Plan also known as an IEP. The IEP will outline all the students’ disabilities and will outline the hours of how the student will spend learning in the classroom. The IEP will give a history of the child and how he was diagnosed with the disability he or she has. The IEP will come with a special education team made up of usually a speech or occupational therapist, the students’ principle, a paraprofessional the student has, and the special education director of the school district. All immediate family is encouraged to attend the child’s IEP meeting.
This study follows to first year reading teachers into the classroom Marco and Destiny (both pseudonyms). Both teachers were trained thoroughly to assist struggling readers. The study begins with the challenges Marco’s faced. He was hired as a second grade teacher in an urban public school. Marco had to implement high-quality reading instruction to his class.
I visited a preschool program in the City of Commerce that is called Tiny Toots for my observation #2. These preschoolers go to school three times a week for two hours. Their ages approximate from four to five years old. I will describe in this observation the "instructional approach to literacy" in the class. I will also analyze and observe the ways children "read it to you" Classification Scheme.
After completing my junior research paper last school year I began thinking about what I would want to focus on for my senior project. I had written my paper on becoming an elementary school teacher, so I knew for my project I wanted to do something that gave me the opportunity to give back to my community. With the desires of some day becoming an elementary teacher, I decided to base my project around early education. After being informed about The Discovery Corner in Phoenix Oregon by my former English teacher, I applied and soon met my mentor Lynn DeHaven. The Discovery Corner is a daycare/ preschool which serves for children starting at 10 months all the way to 6 years old.
