For my preschool observation, I went to little jungle childcare center in Fargo, North Dakota. I knew about this childcare facility, because I have been working there for about seven months. It was truly a different experience to take my break earlier in the day and just observe the class that I usually work in. Through observations, I was able to actually think about why the room is set up the way it is, watch how students and teachers listen and talk to each other, and think about why we do some of the assessment that we do with the kids. Description of the Classroom At Little Jungle Care Child Center, every classroom is themed with a different animal from the jungle.

The teacher explained to me that
My role should be to evaluate the efficiency of students working in the study room and observe the methodologies incorporated into their study routines. Use and knowledge of computer applications, keyboard shortcuts, fluency, typing speed, organization, and various technology efficacies are all aspects of digital literacy that I will observe, analyze, and formulate an opinion on. Outdated computer applications or other computational elements that may be less in terms of performance is something I will also note in my observation.

I saw a few students that were scheduled to attend my evening class and said hello I noticed they were preparing for my class lecture later that evening which, was great to see. The library seemed to be occupied with 25-30 visible individuals. In the student 's computer common area of the library, the students were mainly working individually there was, however, two groups of people sitting next to each other in a small group environment and were in the under 30 age bracket. I observed that in the tutoring center, two middle age male students were getting help from math and one older woman was getting assistance with an English paper. The library associate informed me that the six group study rooms were occupied with groups of about 5-6 students each and were mainly dental, nursing and radiology students.

I noticed it first in their posture, which had been steadily worsening as they sunk deep into the chair and moved closer towards the keyboard and computer screen.
When I enter the classroom, I walk to the right and sit in the fourth seat in that row, then I place my bulky book bag to the right of my chair onto the tiled floor. I have one black and white striped folder that I use for the class, I take that out along with my black mechanical pencil and place it to the right of my grey desk

The classroom of Billy Giblin was located in the older section of the school. As I walked into his classroom, I noticed Mr. Giblin had a very relaxed demeanor to him.
