During story time the teacher read books about groundhogs because it was Groundhog Day. The teacher would read and then show the kids rather than showing the page while reading. I think it is good to show the kids the illustration while reading so the kids can use their imagination. Mrs. Wendy would stop during the story to ask the children and/or comment on the current page. In the Textbook it stats, “Most two- and three-year-old enjoy actively participating in story reading, but they can be very good listeners as well.
The teachers always accommodate the learning areas, for the students to make free choice, but the teachers also guide their young learners during play. On April 23, 2015 the observation took about one hour, upon my arrival children were finishing their breakfast, and choosing learning areas to play. In this classroom the teachers practice free choice, which provide students the opportunity to choose their learning area of interest. This is crucial in early child development setting because it provides students confidence about themselves, and encourage them to think to make decisions.
So, one of the most effective methods for teaching young kids about diversity is through books. By reading multicultural books with multicultural characters help children learn and love. Many books include plays between the characters, teachers can use these advantages to help children be these multicultural characters and interact as they were in it. Games, and such physical exercises also help children improve not only their literacy skills but also familiarize them with other cultures. Communication is a very important part between children and teacher during the lesson.
I would recommend the book, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Hard Luck because in this book series, the author tries to make his writing style have a significant effect towards the book, and the author also makes it easy to understand the narrator’s thoughts through thorough implementation of time (pace) into the first person perspective. The plot and characterization, especially the development, really hooked me in because it mainly
Content • How appropriate is the content of the book for its intended age level? The book is very appropriate for Pre-K-1children. The author evades stereotypes and classifications and uses a variety of colorful dots to tell the story of two children and their families. The uniqueness of this book comes from the author’s ability to use line, shape, and space to give the children opportunities to create their own images of what these characters may look like.
This author’s writing reached an audience from children to older ages. The lessons in his books taught you to be yourself and to stand out because you were born too. His books all have lessons from changing the world and how you learn the best. His books also taught us about imagination and to embrace your inner
However even simple factors such as giving specific rather than general praise, showing interest in things their child shows interest in and establishing routines that promote health, well being and regular study still do make a difference in the way that children view school and learning and the value they hold to their working relationship with teachers. Parents can help the school and their children develop is supporting homework expectations attending open days and parents evenings. Homework is set by teachers when they feel it necessary to check the understanding of what was taught in the lesson, or to expand their knowledge further. If parents are there to support, help and encourage this to be completed it creates a positive learning environment and teaches organisational and study skills that will stay with the child(ren) for life.
I have gained patience when working with children and I believe it is a skill that is required in order for children to exceed their needs and to help a child during transitions to reach their full potential. Timing is key and with support the children will be able to emotionally adapt to attending school but also embrace new surroundings. Encouragement while children are taking part in activities in school allows children to gain self-esteem and confidence as they are being motivated which can give them a sense of achievement. Being a role model to the children is a personal skill as it gives me pride knowing the children are inspired by me and that they can learn from me by using their own initiative, being helpful to others and allowing the children to give suggestions on what they would like to do can keep them
The first memory I have of reading is in first grade. Every once and a while, parents were allowed to come to class and hear their kids read to them, so the kids can show off their progress they have made. Naturally I was excited for this, because I love to show off (humbly) my competency in nearly everything I can and this was a perfect opportunity for me to shine. I went over to the bookshelf and picked out a book that was challenging, yet not too hard, and sat down with my Mom so I could read to her.
During my volunteer site I have enjoyed being able o experience multi-subject, I like the fact that these teachers don’t just teacher one subject all day. Before I came to my observation site I had already made a decision that elementary school was best for me because I feel that some older students wouldn’t respect me because of my size. Unlike kindergartners they look up to almost anyone that is older than they are. As a future teacher I have a lot of goals, I want to be able to be good at what I do, but also love teaching students.
1 It helps people who have disabilities to be able to write their own papers , and even sometimes it helps them be able to speak a little. It helps children with disabilities be able to do their homework too. 2 It demonstrate that they are not just labeled with the disability they have , but instead it shows them that they can easily do just as much and as good as the other children can do.
As a student, while reading this article I found many of the concepts useful but especially familiar. Throughout my years of public education, the older I became, the more I was able to recognize certain techniques and strategies that teachers used. For example, the article mentions to compliment good choices within earshot of peers and parents, keeping it simple and authentic to boost their self-esteem and make them feel comfortable and safe. This is just one of the many suggestions in the article that reminded me of my childhood. Anytime a teacher gave me a compliment, it first made me feel good about myself and distracted me of any fears I may of had.
This book will make kids feel sad, happy, and excited for the main character Paco. The things Paco goes through in this book are things similar to the things kids that get adopted or put into foster care goes through. The lesson in this book is that no matter how happy you think you are, having a group of people who support you will always make you happier. This is important because some second graders who were adopted go through some tough times and think that they only need themselves. This book is for second graders, these students appreciate having a family who loves them.
Personal Response: I thought this was a good book and it got right to the point. I liked how the author made Lucas 's family a part of the fire department. It gave it an inside look on how the firefighters were affected. I really liked that there were facts about the real September 11th at the very end of the book.
In Chapter ten of Through the Eyes of a Child Norton explains informational books and their values. Informational books are nonfiction books that are used to write reports and/or expand knowledge about history, space, animals, plants, geography, or how things work. Everyone values these types of books in schools, homes, libraries, and every educational place found in our country, because their contents are carefully evaluated (Norton 494). The number one value of informational books is that they have such great and trusted information about everything we would ever want to get and learn from.
