She occasionally looked over at a peer’s paper during the activity. When Mrs. Hippchen asked the students to raise their hands if they obtained the correct answer to a question, Alina raised her hand. At one point, Alina was called upon to solve a math problem. She incorrectly answered the question, however, with her teacher’s feedback, she was able to correct her answer. Mrs. Hippchen then instructed the class to clear their desks to start a new math activity.
There are many different technologies out there that students can benefit in the classroom to help with different learning skills. There are many Internet sites that can help, computer programs that you can download for a specific subject like math or reading or even writing, and even games to name a few. As I observed the kindergarten class, the teacher had her students use the smart board to put there ABC’s in order from letter A to Z, I found quite interesting that 4 and 5 year olds new how to use this smart board to their knowledge. I believe that technology is a great advantage for students to use in a learning environment, to better their skills in the
However, in talking circle I realized there was literally no scope of avoiding class participation as every student would eventually share their thoughts in sequence that would promote equitable discussion and participation. Especially, using talking circle to introduce new math topics would be an effective way to enhance students’ number fluency and get them comfortable with explaining their thought process by using students' prior knowledge. Talking circles could also be helpful to review materials before an assessment by discussing questions and answers with students as a group. By exploring different perspective of talking circle the teachers can best implement the discussion format in their classroom to help minimize stratified talk and support mathematics learning for all
Hi Jelly. I agree with your post completely. Because the example you provided about motivation is simple to understand and clear to read. In middle school, my math teacher motivates the students to study on the material she taught to win a class party. She was also willing to stick around after school to help them properly understand it.
The second teacher observation was just wonderful to observe. I was not in my major, but I did get to learn the life of a Math grade teacher. It was unique and fun to see what all types of teacher deal with on a daily basis. Students vary in moods between different types of classes. I was able to learn the uniqueness Mrs. Watts incorporated in her classroom.
Jocelyn Chan Ms.Heaney, Period 5 English 3-4 Honors 20 January 2016 Expected School-wide Learning Results Yearly Reflection During the past school year, I have exhibited qualities of a Champion of Scholarship in the following ways: As a Critical and Creative Thinker: I have received and evaluated information for my classmates in my English class so that their work can be developed to a better or well organized format. I have also received and evaluated information in my geometry class for instance my homework or when working with a team in a problem. I have identified problems and formulated solutions in my geometry class and in my chemistry class which was difficult but
I completed my practicum experience at Ellen Hopkins Elementary in Moorhead in a second-grade classroom. Mr. Larson was my cooperating teacher and he taught me more about teaching and relations to students than I think he realizes. The students also taught me every single day new ways to see certain concepts and positive ways to react in situations. I think Mr. Larson was an excellent cooperating teacher who helped me realize and see a classroom through the eyes of a teacher. My favorite component of the classroom was being able to build on what we were learning and discovering in ED 205 and see it first hand in the classroom by making connections between our readings from Ayers into seeing how the readings take place in a real-life context.
This opportunity gave me the chance to watch her scale, see how she interacted with the patient using great confidence and professionalism, and also the chance to see some of the deep pockets that we are learning about in our Periodontal class. When watching my second year with her patient, I saw a lot of things I was yet to see before. With focusing mainly on calculus levels of zero or one, I haven’t had the opportunity to see anything that isn’t considered “healthy”. The patient that I got to observe is classified as having both calculus and periodontal levels of four; which was helpful as he had some deep pocket depths, generalized bleeding, and a large build up of calculus. According to Foundations of Periodontics for the Dental Hygienist, “healthy tissue does not bleed”, therefore it was clear that
The Independent workgroup gets more advanced word problems. The last group is to increase fluency. It consists of the students solving real-world problems and be able to answer the question correctly and to be able to explain their answer. When it comes to my English language learners, I have in front of the class today schedule, so they know what we are doing today. I included the pages number as well as what problems we are currently working on today.
I normally spend a lot of time writing those notes. I have a good structure to the lecture like what I am going to do, a detail activities in lecture. I also set some quizzes based on that day's lesson and test the students. I often give feedback to students. I create the classroom environment so that I can test my learners as well as how well I am doing in the classroom.
• Classroom Environment I observed a second grade classroom on Wednesday November 18, 2015. During science block time, and the experiment I observed was chemical reactions. I arrived fifteen minutes before the science block time, because I wanted to observe the transition. The transitioning indeed was smooth, and the children shared their happiness about the science experiment. The class on this day had the 23 students and the teacher present.
By attending Eagle Pass High School, I have the honor to interview my mentor and teacher Mrs. Tanya Tijerina who specialized in teaching Physics Regular/ Pre-AP to 10th, 11th and 12th graders. During the interview I found background information about Mrs. Tijerina, she studied in UTSA and got her BS in Biology, currently, she is doing her Masters in School Council in Sul Ross State University. Since I meet her, I’ve always has the feeling of acceptance in the way she treat her students creating a sense of learning and respect between all the students. Mrs. Tijerina is a teacher that had been teaching for more than 6 years, during the interview that I conducted, I asked Mrs. Tijerina about the positions/job that she held before becoming an educator and how did the position lead to the road as an educator. She answer that before becoming a teacher she held three different jobs and each lead to the road of education, the position that she held were babysitting, clerk at UTSA (advise center) and Re-hab optical Riojas, “They
On July 29, 2015, myself, my husband and the interpreter Wilma; we went to a meeting with a specialist named Wendy. It was mentioned in the meeting that Vinny is more organized, the school is well organized, also, she went in the school for two days to observe Vinny, she said that she like it, and she said that Vinny is progressing, I asked in what is progressing, because I don’t see nothing new, and she told me to wait until her report is done. I spoke about Vinny goals, the school set the goals very low and of course he will do it because he does it already in the house every day , for example : wash his hands, brush his teeth….In behavior ,social, hygiene, independence, also communicating using the IPad, and he learned how to handle his
So, the first question she asks me was “describe yourself.” I felt confident about this question because we went over this question a lot in class. As she continues asking questions, I didn’t feel as nervous. By the end of the interview, I was feeling good about how I answer the questions. At the end, Mrs. Amy told me what I need to work on. She said, “Make sure you go in more depth with your answer.” Also, provide more example with your answer, to highlight your skills.
I needed Mrs. Hasan ( language arts teacher) to open my locker with a key. I have advanced math first hour. The teacher for math is Mrs Tate. Mrs Tate is really nice she is also very fun. I think I learn more when I have a nice and fun teacher because they take their time to explain things to us.
