It enables students to learn both deeply. The practice of making art, and its performance or exhibition becomes an essential part of pedagogy and assessment, but not just in art or music class.
The teachers have to do the preparation before doing the classroom activity. The good preparation will determine the success of teaching learning process. This preparation includes material and media in order to make an effective teaching learning process. In teaching speaking through hopscotch game, teaching material for young learners is all information, knowledge, or ideas held inside to be delivered to the young learner students in the teaching and learning activities.

Classroom administration is the procedure by which educators and schools make and keep up suitable conduct of understudies in classroom settings. At the point when classroom-administration systems are executed successfully, instructors minimize the practices that obstruct learning for both individual understudies and gatherings of understudies, while expanding the practices that encourage or improve learning. Classroom administration is truly hard and numerous scholars discuss it and each is not quite the same as the other where every scholar has his/her own thoughts and considerations. Some of them are specified beneath. In Redl and Wattenberg 's speculations, they incorporate gathering flow, poise, the delight torment guideline, and comprehension reality.
Some of the teaching strategies teachers used include writing on the board, visual representation, explaining, examples, questioning, prompting, trial and error, repetition, group work, peer teaching, individual explanation (if needed), and asking who understands; ensuring that all students understand what was taught. Students’ work is often display in all classes on the wall or on the blackboards separating their classrooms.

A classroom houses both teachers and students from diverse cultural, geographical and social backgrounds. Another reason for language diversity, which can impose into the classroom, is time. I will now endeavour to explain, in a little more detail, how these factors have influenced our language, and why we need to be aware of this in today’s classroom. It is most certainly, always the case, that a child will learn whatever language they have been exposed to. Young learners are like sponges, they will absorb all this information that surrounds them.

They trust that their children will be safe with me and trust that I will teach them and give them the education that they deserve. English essayist Chesterton wrote, “Education is simply the soul of a society as it passes from one generation to another” ( Guillaume, 2016, p.29). As teachers we are the building blocks for our students education. In my Art class I try to expose my students to many things and try to show them that with a good education and hard work they can accomplish and do anything that they put their mind too.

The desks are arranged in a way where all students face the teacher, and the teacher can walk around freely. Desks are new and clean and have the correct dimensions for the age of the students, every desk has a shelf where students keep their books and notebooks.

One negative effects of technology in today's classroom is that it can take away valuable learning time. For instance, in today's classroom, teachers are pressed to make every minute count. If the teacher and students are not experienced with technology in the classroom, valuable time is often wasted on technical glitches. In addition, the teacher faces the difficulty of having a class full of students who are all at different skill levels. In many schools, most students will have a computer and Internet access, but schools that are located in impoverished areas may have a large portion of their student body with little to no computer experience.
