posture, bottom lip, anchor, etc.). I plan to bring a checklist with me next week. I also probably would have used GarageBand a little more or had Nico record Hot Cross Buns in SmartMusic, but we ran out of time towards the end of the lesson. I plan to have Nico record in GarageBand and play along to SmartMusic in the next lesson. For next lesson, I want to make sure that Nico is tapping his foot properly as well, and make sure that he is breathing from his diaphragm (without using that term when teaching him). I also want to use a mirror next lesson so that Nico can see what proper embouchure and fingerings look
"Me Talk Pretty One Day" by David Sedaris is a relevant article about moving to a new country to learn the language. It explains the difficulties he had faced as a student, and as a foreigner. The article explains the emotions he was feeling during his first days and weeks of being a student in Paris. The authors' goal is to express that even if you struggle with something you can overcome the obstacles. I agree that persistence is very important.
The children been working on beginning letter sounds and this lesson is a new learning strategy to reinforce the concept in a fun and appealing song that help reproduce the sound patterns. Have been working with ELL students on letter sounds at beginning of words. Been going over the farmer in the del song and naming the animals on the farm as background knowledge and something to relate to the children to see the sound at the beginning match the animals. Students will be observed by the teacher as they are singing the song and making the beginning letter sounds. The teacher will be looking for the correct pronunciation of each word and sound isolations.

Adesh Balraj and I had a productive fall semester. One of my long terms goals for Adesh was to help improve is fundamental to the point where the trumpet would not hinder what he wants to say musical. To begin working on this goal we spent the majority of our weekly lessons working on a few different concepts. We started working on breathing and having a consistent horizontal air flow to improve the efficiency in which Adesh plays with. We worked on improving flexibility throughout the horn to improve his ability to play low to high with get ease.
After numerous e-mails to each other, Mr. Bowe and I decided to schedule the interview in his classroom for Friday, October 9th. Analogous with the majority of those that enter the teaching profession, Mr. Bowe’s desire to better the lives of students began with a fundamental inspiration: his teachers. Teachers are, in one word, influential. A great teacher inspires their students to love learning.
This supports the idea that Meredith Rhodes Lundgren has a big impact on her students because she has encouraged them to try new things. Identically, Zoe Troff, the only French horn player in the cadet band, explained, “I thought playing French horn was terrible, but then because of her teaching, it helped me enjoy playing the French horn.” Zoe Troff’s explanation demonstrates the idea that Meredith Rhodes Lundgren's teaching has

I attend church at Center Baptist in candor, my dad is the pastor. We have a youth group, and one little boy out of the group has slowly stolen my heart right before my eyes. His name is Elijah. He is six, and he loves to sing and play the piano. I also play, I have been playing the piano since I was seven years old.
I am so thankful and privilege to work with an awesome mentor like my mentor Justine Clarke. She has given me a lot of information and I am trying to grasp everything. I know that this time of the year, all teachers are so busy in assessing their children’s learning and
After thirty-three years of teaching at one school, Mrs. Peddicord retired the same night that I graduated junior high. She left the community, and I have not seen her since. To this day, though, I still draw from her numerous parables, quips, and admonishments to bolster my success. My loves of music and of learning have not been quenched, and they have grown inseparable. Music is a relaxation from coursework, and coursework deepens the beauty of music.
Desired performance outcome is modelled. This than proceeds to teacher directed learning activities coupled with high rates of positive and corrective feedback (Metzler, 2011). Skill theme is learned through practice, timely feedback and through
To me this was a huge help because it was hard to be in a school that taught a language that I didn’t know. I was a fast learner and I adjusted well but without this teacher my transition would of been harder. While doing observation hours I was able to see kids that face the same struggles I once did and it’s not easy.
The students were highly engaged. I could say that the concepts to be learn were explicitly linked to ELLs’ background experience and past learning. I listened to the teacher’s speech and voice projection, it was appropriate (not too slow, not too fast), and she emphasized the importance of being respectful/active listeners. She ensured that each students had sufficient time to respond to her questions, and clarify if a student seemed confused (regarding the objectives). As the students did the group work, Mrs. Carbone foster noticing.
Throughout my training, I implemented various strategies for engaging students in small groups and rigorous lessons. My role as a teacher is to communicate effectively, be respectful, and have self-worth and confidence. I did fear making wrong choices throughout this field experience. I set high expectations the students to achieve high goals. Teaching to me opened doors to many students’ lives.
