Pedagogy of Listening Observation and Analysis: The First Step Toward Authentic Assessment It’s thanksgiving break for all the school on the island and I am grateful to spend extra time out of work (teaching) and enjoy family time with my children’s. I chose to observe one of my children’s. She is a six-year-old little girl, who is filled with energy and silliness and is a first grader. She is very active, talkative, silly, spoiled and all other behaviors that she chooses to show on a daily bases, none the less I still love her. This little girl I speak of happens to be my daughter who is totally different from my two elder children’s.
I had the opportunity to observe Ms. Nicole’s preschool classroom located at Sault Tribe Child Care Center in Sault Ste. Marie, MI on Wednesday from nine to ten in the morning. The children were involved in free choice time, exploring the different interest areas the classroom had to offer. I focused my attention on ten random children who had been engaged in exploratory play and observed each of them for ten minutes, documenting what activities they participated in. I found a pattern among the children during my observation.
There’s a rule in my family that everyone must eat together as a family for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. After breakfast, me and my siblings go to school, once school is over I go to a Korean school where I am taught about my culture and learn Korean. I usually get home by seven and eat straight away. After dinner, I do my homework. Once I’m done I watch TV or use my computer until I go to bed.
Student Engagement A good teacher should know how to engage students in learning activities and be able to respond to diverse students needs in the classroom. The classroom observations I have seen these past week has shown me examples of good teachers. In all the classes I observed the students sat quietly and were always ready to raise their hands and answer questions. In my kindergarten class all the students were really into their assignments and wanted approval of their work from their teacher. A good way I saw a teacher trying to keep her students engaged was giving them a time limit for how long they had to do the assignment before they had to present their results or move on to the next activity.
Every day I try to make myself disposable to others in that same way, rather its taking time out to go to the park with my daughter or reading her a story before she goes to bed. Or rather its taking the time to be patient with my coworkers and understand their opinions and concerns in order to let them know that they are a valued member of our team overall. I have learned to live my life in a way to make others feel how I want to feel. It brings me great pride to see my daughter also doing these things at a young age. Taking time out to volunteer in the community and sacrifice for those in greater need than
At this stage as children learn a sense of industry if they win praise for productive, activities, such as building, painting, and reading (Coon & Mitterer, 2012). When I was still in Grade one, our teacher used to praise us in class when we did in a particular thing that she asked us to do it. My mother used to buy me thing that I love such as wrestling T-shirts when I did well at school or sometimes if I got a total on classwork. At this stage that when the teachers and parents begin to take an important role in the child’s life as they teach the child specific skills (Coon & Mitterer,
Everyone grows up learning how to read, it’s a natural habit. Nevertheless, not everyone grows up to love reading. Fortunately for myself, my love for reading only continued to grow older I grew. It all began when my parents and grandparents would read to us on long car rides, or at bedtime. Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear, had become one of my favorite bedtime stories when my grandmother read it to me, as a toddler.

How To Encourage Your Baby To Sit Up One of the most important developmental milestones that parents eagerly await is the day their baby learns to sit up independently. Majority of the babies learn to sit on their own around 6 to 8 months of age. Nevertheless, babies can learn to sit up as late as ten months or as early as four months, without any cause of worry. So what is it that really differs between babies who sit up early and babies who sit up late? The answer lies in the child’s ability to support head and roll from back to belly.
Jordanna is normally home alone from 3pm to 7: 30pm. Ms. Pedone told me she has made arrangements for Jordanna to stay with a friend until she gets off of work and picks her up. Jordanna does her homework and eats dinner at her friend 's house. Their official night time routine starts at 8:30pm, but it depends on whether or not Ms.Pedone has to cook or if she has leftovers from the previous night. Jordanna bath time usually overlaps with Ms. Pedone cooking.
Then, takes the kids to school and heads to work. As soon as, the kids get home from school she gets them snacks and directs me to assist them in homework. In that time, I take over watching the kids and take care of feeding them dinner, playing games, doing outside activities, as well as helping them take their showers and get ready for bed. Finally, after she gets home from the gym, she prepares her kids
Many fortunate children in this world wonder why they have to go to school, and whine because they want to stay home and play. What they don’t know is that the People around kids need them to go to school all the time not just for education, but also so they may go to work and feed their families. That is why Year-Round would be a great option for everybody to use in the US. The reason that Year-Round Schooling would be great is because, you may have food, and a place to sleep and wake up, but what about the children that don’t have what you have, they rely on their next meal coming from the school cafeteria. To understand this issue better we need to look at some statistics.
The curriculum followed by TEA is periodically updated by the State Board of Education and is known as TEKS (Texas Essential Knowledge and skills). Textbooks are then written in accordance with the TEKS for the different grade levels. (Source: http://tea.texas.gov/) Children observed: I observed a Kindergarten classroom of 19 children (10 boys and 9 girls) on 29 April, 2016 for three hours.
