Generally, one or two students do raise their hands to pose a question for clarification. However, to make sure the directions are understood I will call on a few students, one at a time, to tell me what I need to do in order to accomplish the task. My view has changed some about how to perform better with diverse students in the classroom as well. For instance, to work with students and parents I will post daily homework assignments on the class website. This approach is helpful to students if they need to confirm the assignment given.
10) The following instructional strategies used in the properties of multiplication lesson: • Modeling- The teacher wrote on the board what she wanted the students to write in their math journals. This was appropriate for third graders to help them develop note taking skills. • Arrays- The teacher drew various arrays on the board to demonstrate how to solve the mathematical sentences. This is a strategy that is used in teaching elementary math to give students a deeper understanding of multiplication. • Independent practice- Students were given several different problems to solve on their own.
There is a basic development continuum for concepts of print. The child first determines print has a message, the difference between letter and word, left to right in the English language, return sweep and page orientation. Marie Clay developed an assessment to determine the knowledge base a student has about print. Developing literacy skills involves beginning phonological awareness as well as alphabet knowledge by learning to separate speech into words and to match sounds and letters (Mason & J.Stewart,
Patrick Lewis, pencils, scratch paper Grouping Students will work in pairs so as they could discuss how to solve a problem in the poem. b) Reading (the activity was retrieved from https://betterlesson.com/lesson/613848/cells-the-basic-building-blocks-of-living-things) Students will participate in close reading of “Cells that Make Us” article. Students annotate text by first marking the text and then writing and drawing in the margins using the Avid strategy (Attachment 6) After that, students answer the questions (Attachment 7). The purpose of this activity is to reinforce the concept that living things are made of cells, the concepts of unicellular and multicellular organisms, and also connect the Microscope Mania activity with theory. Materials Cells That Make Us articles for each student Attachment 7), pencils, dictionaries Grouping At this point I would like students to work individually.
Diagnostic tests:- To identify the specific needs of students with spelling difficulties. Teacher discovers detail what spelling knowledge , skills. Strategies the students can already apply To detect any gaps or weakness or misunderstandings in student’s current repertoire of skills and strategies. Interview and discussion with a student: All information are obtained concerning students knowledge , skills strategies and spelling by talking with the student Student are asked When you need to learn the spelling of some words, how do you try to learn them? When you are writing, what do you if you are not quite sure how to spell the word?
Alina was observed during the morning in her third grade class. At the start of the observation, Alina appeared focused and engaged as she worked independently on a math assignment. After a few minutes, Mrs. Hippchen, Alina’s third grade teacher, reviewed the math answers to the class. As Mrs. Hippchen reviewed the answers and called upon students to provide answers, Alina appeared focused as she listened and wrote on her math worksheet. She occasionally looked over at a peer’s paper during the activity.
Materials: Three Billy Goats Gruff, Story Map Anchor Chart, Pocket Chart with Story Strips, Flip Book Handout (one each student), Scissors, and Colors Objective: After reading the Three Billy Goats Gruff the students will be able to identify and describe what a book is mainly about, and the students will be able to describe the story’s overall structure, including characters, setting, and the beginning, middle, and ending. Explicate Instruction: Explain that the main idea or theme is what the story is about, and that a title, and the pictures of a story can help identify the theme of a story. Show the students a story map by using an anchor chart, and explain that story maps are tools that can help readers verify and understand the setting, characters, sequence of the story, remember information from the story, and determine the main idea of the story. Introduce the students the Three Billy Goats Gruff, and ask them what they know about the story to aid them in activating prior knowledge. Teacher Modeling: Use the think-aloud process to model determining the main
Synthetic phonics instruction focuses on teaching students the letters and corresponding sounds that make up words (Hill, 2012). Synthetic phonics instruction is the main method of teaching phonics as it allows children from any background and knowledge base to develop their reading ability. This approach is normally teacher-centred and involves explicit instruction practice and feedback (National Inquiry into the Teaching of Literacy, 2005). The bottom-up approach is used since children learn how each letter makes up a syllable, word, sentence and paragraph (National Inquiry into the Teaching of Literacy, 2005). For example, a teacher writing the letter ‘a’ would explain the sound it makes in the word ‘tap’, this would then be extrapolated
Children from the early age need to study the alphabetic letters and recognize them in a sounds connecting them in words and sentences. For example, in my class I will use different strategies helping children understand academic language during the lesson learning and recognizing letters and words, such as smart board, ABC song, pictures, books, and set up different activities. I need to help shy or children as a second language learn different unfamiliar words with a pleasure manner give them an opportunity to success in study.
Oral Language is when the language is spoken to express ideas, thoughts and even emotion. Before a child learns to read, the child begins to speak and connect through saying the words aloud. With that in mind, a child can identify and connect the words on the page to the picture that appears through their mind base on the concept of oral language. Oral language goes beyond the classroom walls because it starts from the words, saying and ideas that they’ve personally heard and experienced through their life. Therefore, many educators test their students on their Oral Language abilities, and Oral Language is comprised of Phonology, Semantics, Grammar, Morphology, Pragmatics, and Discourse.
Entry #2: Date and Time: Friday, February 17, 2017, 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. (3 hours) Task/Activity: Students in both classes started off the class by taking their weekly spelling test. Following this, both classes examined prose-constructed responses completed by fellow students (although responses were kept anonymous). Students would then work in groups to grade the response according to PARCC standards. The class would then come back together as a whole, with each group discussing the grade they gave the response and why. Mrs. Lanza would then reveal the grade she gave the response, hoping that each group fell within one point value and had relatively the same constructive criticism to give.
I would use this day to allow the students to have independent work and practice time to work on the different properties that we studied during the week. I would have 4-5 activities picked out and ready for the students to work on. The first activity that I would have the students work on is an instructional math game on the laptops. The game is from Math Blaster and explains to students that a+b=b+a (commutative property), and then provides an example of this with numbers; (example- 3+6=9 and 6+3=9 or 9-6=3). Students would also be able to do an instructional computer game on the Associative property of addition.
The teacher makes the students quickly recite the words given and spell one word. Then, a child is shown site reading. While the child is reading, the teacher/instructor is keeping track of if and how many errors were made. She also kept track of how long it took the child to read the given paragraph. The next thing in the video, they interview a young student and ask him why he enjoys the directional education methods that they use in the classroom.
I observed Laua Kapeller’s fourth grade class at Blackhurst elementary on November 18, 2016. The concept of the day was to refresh the students on perimeter and area of objects for the subject of math. The methods Ms. Kapeller used to teach the students was by power point and wooden block that were one-inch-wide and one inch in height. She explained the directions to the class first before handing out the blocks. She separated the class into partners and later on in the activity the partners had to form a group by joining other partners because of the amount of blocks the activity called for.
My students with reading disabilities will be given small group instruction. I will use key elements from the text to help guide them along. During whole group instruction, both my struggler and non struggling students will use a map to locate where the Author’s family originated. In addition,
