My observation of Mrs. Seeley, a SpEd teacher at Sigourney High School, was very interesting and inspirational. The way that she connected to every student and morphed her teaching around each student’s disability was remarkable. I was truly amazed, especially with the kids who had ADD or ADHD because they were calm, collected, and well behaved. When, usually, they are bouncing off of the walls, cannot focus, and don 't listen to directions well. They were all on task and did everything that she asked them to; this showed me how much that they respected her.
Daywalt took an item that children use on a daily basis and created a conflict that they would understand. The theme, as previously discussed, is successful in teaching a lesson without stating it obviously. This makes the book perfect for read alouds in classrooms from which teachers can create extensive lesson plans for an elementary class. Middle school teachers may also use this story because of the mature nature of its theme in a fun and humorous way. Both adults and children would be attracted to this story as a buyer.
Just because someone has ADHD does not mean they are stupid. ADHD has been an ongoing issue in school systems across the nation. In fact, there are people with all different intellectual levels who suffer from ADHD (Brown). In this situation, teachers noticed a problem and acted upon it due to their prior education and knowledge. When children are diagnosed with ADHD, parents and teachers tend to look at the child as if they are damaged, when in reality it is just a disorder they suffer from.
LC appreciates this approach to teaching her children. She wants to make the learning process fun, interesting and a family involved educational experience. LC believes her children are in the first stages of substance abuse and if they tackle this as a family in a positive manner, the children will learn and not feel shame. Adaptation occurs in this instance when LC expresses interest in the website version of teaching. The student nurse prepares to teach with paper articles; however, LC gravitates to the computer-based options believing they will grab the attention of her children.
With enough practice, kids will slowly begin to build their their communication and literacy skills. Math is also illustrated through numbers and sh Physical development is illustrated through songs, The television series Dora the Explorer is a very informative television program for children and plays an essential role in a child’s early developmental stages.
For the second ten minute observation, I observed was during the teacher during circle time. They do a 20 minute circle every morning and the children love it. For this observation, I would give the teacher a rating of 5 for responding to social cues. During the circle time, she would ask questions and let the children talk. She would pick on kids with their hands up and allow them to speak and she would also pick on the kids that clearly wanted to talk, where either trying to talk without raising their hands.
Eliana Gil was an excellent example of the use of play therapy. The case examined the benefits of using play when working with children for the entire family. The approach that Dr. Gil used was so effective that it is clear that it would be beneficial for many families looking for counselling in the future. I liked Dr. Gil’s approach, but if I had to change one thing I would likely just change the type of play to give it more direction toward the anger management and behavioural issues that Sharon was describing as the concerns for her son in the
I was in a classroom working on 2nd grade games. The games I presented were I-spy and top-it. I had just a few students with their families in my room. Presenting and discussing the games with the families benefited the child and the parent to play these fun and easy games at home. In my last rotation the students were hard to manage because each of them were going at their own pace playing the games.
I have a lot of self-efficacy in my values and skill relating to this career path. I will continue to build on my personal traits, as well as professional experience, to appeal to potential employers when I reach that stage in my career path. Pediatric Occupational Therapists address many different areas, being cognitive skills, fine motor skills, gross motor skills, social skills, and self-care tasks. Weekly schedules can vary, depending on the child and his/her needs. It also depends on the environment I placed in, which can be a school, clinic, hospital or even a separate private program.
While working at a preschool I discovered my love of working with children. My favorite moments were when the children would finally write the letter we had been practicing the whole week. I would watch them do something by themselves that they had not been able to do before and see how proud they were of themselves. Knowing that I helped them feel that way was the best feeling. I want to translate that into the physical therapy field and help children with neurological disorders and developmental delays achieve their potentials, physically and
He showed eagerness in listening to her, and took to heart what she taught and said. Its amazing how the right adult supervision can turn a child onto a path of education and correct social skills. It was interesting to read Ruvy 's IEP and then to see the child in action. Ruvy is a wonderful child and has a lot to offer to others, the class and
My favorite video was Tim Bedleys. I really enjoyed his approach to teaching the children. From the beginning he explained to the children the problem at hand, which was the class was not reaching consensus. He did so in a way that enabled the children to comprehend the problem, and established that he wanted the class to resolve the problem. He also maintained the class very well during the group activities by previously assigning roles.
When I babysit, they watch how I act and talk so I want to set the best example. Due to the children constantly watching me, I know what words and actions are wrong to use in any situation. The children have taught me how to be a better person, along with me teaching them how to grow up to be an outstanding individual. Although I have several skills due to my experience with children already, I hope to improve them. There can always be improvement with any skill, even if I think I have
I observed Laua Kapeller’s fourth grade class at Blackhurst elementary on November 18, 2016. The concept of the day was to refresh the students on perimeter and area of objects for the subject of math. The methods Ms. Kapeller used to teach the students was by power point and wooden block that were one-inch-wide and one inch in height. She explained the directions to the class first before handing out the blocks. She separated the class into partners and later on in the activity the partners had to form a group by joining other partners because of the amount of blocks the activity called for.
It is also suggested that children with the syndrome are given an advocate to help communication between child, family, school, and others (Liles & Packman, 2009). Since Fetal Alcohol Syndrome is “not only the primary cause of mental retardation in the United States, but also the most readily preventable,” then it is obvious that children with this syndrome are at risk (Liles & Packman, 2009). They would benefit from the help of social workers throughout their lives. Most of the interventions in place have focused on the prevention of FAS through awareness.
