Students should be able to regulate themselves to coexist in the classroom and also outside the classroom. For instance, there is time for playing, learning and feeding. Although some students are more thrilled by the play time, self-control must be instilled in them to ensure mindset growth. Desires must be regulated as life demands containment. Students learning about self-control effective develop as thinkers and self-driven.
During these peer interactions, the teacher can see how the children organise their learning and how they deal with challenges. Play also presents a number of opportunities for learning, whereby engaging with the pupils in their interaction the educator would pick up ways of how to extend their play and assess their learning in a more formative and indirect manner. Moreover, we also found that it is more effective to see the children in their naturalistic setting without being obtrusive, hence informal observations are key as not to disturb the children’s ordinary routine. Observing the children’s guardians could also be a window towards finding out what motivates the children to learn, Maccoby
According to Mary Ashworth, the key to teaching English to younger children lies in knowing who they are as individuals and understanding their culture and specific interests (CITE). Once a teacher can understand the varying cultures of students in the classroom they can draw an understanding of skills such as specific phonemes a young child may already be capable of creating a more comfortable teaching experience (CITE). Another aspect in many non-native English countries to be noted is the importance of family and extended family and gathering what the expectations for each child are from the parents (CITE). Creating a connection with the parents and respecting their desires allows for better reception of homework assignments at home and a respectful environment between both parties
If they guide their children to grow fond to mathematics and is necessary to the academic the child could attain a successful life. There is a lot of reasons on why students fear math. A common thread is the “confusing array of disconnected facts, rules, and definitions.” (Krussel, 1998). Math can be misunderstood and misinterpret by confusion whether words have their
They also teach “students the basic educational skills they need to succeed academically” (“Elementary School Teacher” Occupational 1). Another responsibility is providing students with a variety of different learning experiences. They “encourage students intellectual growth by preparing, presenting, and explaining information on a level that the kids can understand” (Cassedy 1). Reinforcing appropriate communication, social skills, self-control, cultural diversity, drug prevention, sharing, and responsibility are also in the description. So they not only teach academically, but they also “help students learn about themselves and the world while preparing them to face future challenges” (“Elementary School Teacher” Occupational 1).
One of the primary aims and urgent problems of the school is to adjust individual students to a school program that can teach mathematics severely in dealing with numbers (Araque, 1998). Since studies indicate that students have greater tendency to develop mathematical phobia, it is therefore important to find out the level of mathematical phobia of the pupils in order to give proper training and motivation so that they will develop their interest in mathematics subject. This descriptive study aimed to determine the Mathematical Phobia among first year fisheries students of University of the Philippines
Moreover, it is also observed that participation of learners and their performances in classroom is affected, if it does not totally depend, on the use of instructional materials. In Mathematics, pupils do appreciate the lessons more when they are presented with visual images aside from numbers. The lessons become more interesting when the images are moving and requires interaction. Besides, learners today belong to what we call as Generation Z. This generation think and process information differently.
What more! Create learning opportunities and allow space for individual approaches to learning. Most importantly in an effective teaching, teacher act as a facilitator and allows students to take responsibilities for their own learning but not indoctrinating knowledge to the students head. Teachers play a vital role in teaching and learning that enhance students to become independent and critical thinkers while modeling life-long learners. In addition, the role of a teacher is to reach the heart and mind of the children, expand their intellect and knowledge.
As a teacher, I have to work hard to enhance my students ' roles in class. First of all, students have to be engaged in the learning process so, in order to achieve that, I must ensure that the classroom is a welcoming and safe environment so students feel accepted and affirmed. Moreover, surveying students favorites would help me to build a connection with students and this suggested information would serve as a motivator for enhancing the academic performance of the students. Learning opportunities must be collaborative so that peer relationships and social skills are active in order to help students to be engaged and motivated. Furthermore, make sure that students ' self-belief is enhanced and they must believe that they are able to learn and deal with failures in order to develop their confidence towards learning.
CHAPTER 5 SUMMARY, FINDINGS, CONCLUSIONS AND RECOMMENDATIONS 5.1 Summary Mathematical word problems are an important part of mathematics curriculum throughout the world. Word problems are specifically used to let students apply their mathematical knowledge and make clear to them how mathematics can be used in daily life. Educationists and teachers had tried to make their solving easier and understandable to the learners. To solve a mathematical word problem was considered as practicing some techniques, to master them, and use in different other problems. The main focus of teachers remained on some key words found in the given problem.
