I observed the teachers demonstrate to the students what they should do by going first. As the relay took place the teachers were encouraging the students by saying “you can do it.” Once the relay race was over the students went back inside and worked on independent work. On one side of the classroom, the kindergarteners were drawing pictures while the first graders were working on a math worksheet. Counting blocks were available to the students to use for this assignment. I observed the teacher walking around the room and working one-on-one with students.
She also thought that she might add to the letter what “some students” were doing to her everyday so she did. The principal took this very strongly and quite personally, so he agreed and he made sure that all students were to be graded on their conduct. Never again did they bother my sister again in school. Mr. Principal, it is very sad to think that there are people in this very school that are treating other kids like they treated my sister.
His principal thinks that rh use of fidget spinners at school is unacceptable. Liam also believes fidget spinners help keep students concentrated. His principal agrees with him but she still does not want them at school. She did say that she might at least let them have them out at lunch recess, on the bus or in class as a part of a lesson.I think fidget spinners should be allowed at school. One of my reasons is ‘’ they keep kids off electronics.’’ I think they keep kids off electronics because there are many cool fidget spinners for example there are light up ones and glow in the dark ones.
Mom and Dad were with me as we waited for my teacher to come to the office to retrieve me. When she arrived, she was kind and asked me to follow her back to her classroom. I said goodbye to Mom and Dad and followed my new teacher, the timid anticipation bubbling up inside me again. The room was empty because the other kids were finishing up their recess so my teacher, Mrs. Jaeger, introduced me to the morning work that the class did every morning. I was working on that when the students started walking into the classroom.
At Meachem, there is a student who is punished for leaving the classroom on his own accord, yet when he acts out in class, the teacher will often send him into the hallway. This sends the student a mixed message on appropriate and inappropriate behavior. A way to integrate best practice in this situation is to sit down with the student and teacher and establish ground rules for appropriate behavior. One should also explain to the teacher that a child cannot be reprimanded for behaviors that the teacher is instituting. Additionally, a check in/check out system with a peer mentor may be beneficial to the student in helping them achieve daily goals, such as calming down when upset or completing class work.
The three girls had to go to school a couple days after they landed. Delphine was excited because she got the nice teacher in her grade but sadly she got a exchanged teacher from a different country. The teacher explain why he was there and not their other teacher. Delphine and the students were sad about them not getting to do fun stuff that the other students in another country get to do. Throughout the school year, Delphine had to do a project with some people that she
He uses the example that students ask to leave class to go text someone in the hall and he know when they lie to him about needing to use the restroom. He still allows them to go because then they have to depend on him for any freedom that they are given. Lesson number five is an Intellectual dependency, it is to wait for the decision or choice from an expert to go off of instead of trying to go on your own. Provisional Self-Esteem is the sixth lesson the kids learn from Gatto. Kids are taught from a young age that they are loved no matter what and Gatto tries to correct these misconceptions by teaching that self respect should come from the judgments of others.
We were being lectured on good behavior in the locker room because some of the kids were being mean to the other kids. Then, we were saved by the bell. Consequently, we weren’t let out of P.E. We had to finish the lecture in order to leave. After an eternity, they finished the lecture.
A teacher most likely has just as much, if not more than us students have to do, and they still think we are lazy, sometimes this is the case. However, they don’t know what other classes we have that we are up to our eyebrows in stress for. I make sure that my parents know how much i have to do every night so they know that i won’t have time for other things, or they offer help. So, next time you have a high school student complaining about being stressed maybe jsut give them encouraging words and tell them that they can do it if they work hard. Most of us are jsut looking for encouragment and maybe a little tip for help, however there are a few students that actually are lazy or dramatic, there will always be a few of those kids.
Rowe sets aside funding for teachers to observe other teachers to build instructional leaders and increase collaborations. One of the parent contacted the school regarding their child recording a video in class where the teacher is not doing his job and allow students to roam everywhere in the classroom. One of the AP visited the classroom and observed that the teacher is having issue managing his classroom. The approach of not confronting the teacher directly to preserve his dignity is very thoughtful at building trust and relationship. I think it is clever to have the teacher identify the students that he might need support and free up the teacher schedule to observe other teacher with the same student.
