I did not like how the caregiver interacted with the infants playing outside. I am very please how the teacher read the book. She about 7 interaction strategies and the infants love it. I love how she uses the tempo and volume. I love this experience because allows me to find different
During the last cycle, the children were gathered on the carpet for large group. The teacher encouraged a child to read a book to her classmates. However, the lack of clearly stated behavioral expectations resulted in a chaotic environment as the children climbed over one another to see the book. The teacher next transitioned into an exercise routine in which most of the children became excited and participated; however, about four boys roamed the classroom and remained unengaged in any learning activity, shouting loudly from time to time, distracting their fellow classmates, and with little response from the teacher. Next, the teacher initiated a music and movement activity, and quickly after the completion of the activity, transitioned
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.
Again, I was able to do an observation other Pre-K class on two different days. I observed a second Pre –K class. The teachers were Ms. Tracy and Ms. Megan. Both are extremely qualified teacher with Master Degree in Early Childhood. I observed the environment and the interaction of the teachers and their students. Although, both classes used the same structure routines as well as the curriculum provides by Goddard, there were some similarities and some differences.
It was 1:00 pm when I arrived at Wanamaker Elementary School. Patiently I waited outside the door. When I was finally let inside the classroom, I was welcomed by a mixture of bright smiles and blank stares. Mrs. Stark then introduced me to the class of twenty third graders. After she introduced me to the whole class, I quietly made my way to the back of the class. Within my observation of the classroom; I was able to see how the teacher interacted with the students, how gender role played a role within the students, and lastly see the how the students interacted.
Above are pictures of Mrs. Pollard’s classroom at Hartwood Elementary School. The atmosphere of the room is extremely bright and learning-oriented. The lighting is bright and there are posters around the room that are colorful. The picture on the left shows the set-up of the entire room and the picture on the right shows the front of the room from the perspective of the students. If anything is difficult to see in the pictures, Mrs. Pollard has Orff instruments set up on the side, a piano in the front, and two desks in the back; which leaves a space in the middle of the room for students.
Introduction: I observed at Kindercare Daycare located at 800 S. Arlington Heights Rd. Elk Grove Village, IL 60007. I was observing the Preschool and kindergarten classroom. The children’s ages ranged from three to five years old. There was at the most twenty children in the room that I observed in, and one staff member per classroom.
She didn’t know what to do. “And I suddenly had such a vivid flashback that I completely lost my train of thought.” She talked about a childhood experience with her brother Matt. I think she was trying to get the student into learning, but that got the student feel boring instead. The entire lesson, she couldn’t build connections with her students.
The teacher reacts with the children to keep them interested and moving. Some of the time the children just likes to sit in the teacher 's lap and not get involved with the other children. One day, Mrs. Lauren sat on the rug during sensory play and two of the children wanted to sit in her lap while the other children wanted to play. Sometimes the children seem to get out of control. Mrs. Lauren always makes sure that she handles the children with love and care.
Most classrooms are analogous in their basic structure. They typically consist of the essential accessories such as chairs, tables, and desks. However moving past the basic structures they become more unique. Their distinguished qualities, often correspond with varying influential factors. These factors include, instructor and subject matter, school setting, and student population.
4a – After the delivering lessons, Miss Hannan assessed the instructional session and provided suggestions to improve upcoming lessons. 4b – Miss Hannan collaborated with the cooperating teacher for an efficient and effective process of recording and maintaining accurate assessment for each student. 4c – Miss Hannan described that parents and teachers are “ultimate teammates” in a student’s education. She kept parents informed by a weekly newsletter that was written by students. Understanding that parents need to be made aware of their child’s progress, Miss Hannan communicated positive and areas of challenges by sending notes and emails to parents.
She used this strategy to keep them from playing too rough with their other classmates. She had a genuine bond with every child she taught and every classroom she taught in. She once said, “The surest test of discipline is its absence.” (Clara
She made the students listen. She made sure they knew she was in control, but she was not aggressive in any way. The last hour that I was there the students broke up into groups by the tier that they were in. I stayed with the teacher, and she was with tier 2 students. She used a reward system, for example, she promised that the students could go outside if they did their best, to get each student to achieve their goal.
I mainly learned and observed and took notes, instead. I found it somewhat difficult because I noticed that the OT did not cater to each child’s abilities. I had worked with the children for 8 hours a day as their previous teacher, instead of working with them for only 1 – 2 hours a day, as the OT did. Therefore, I knew the children’s weaknesses and strengths and what they should have been working harder or less
The environment in the classrooms was medium large (design like a small apartment without bathroom); divide into 4 rooms, which it includes wooden and workstation desks along with wheeled chairs; including one small office for staff, and two small workstation desk for teachers.
