I started doing my field Experience in Lime Kiln Elementary school where I shadowed Mr. Mikalov, a fifth grade teacher, When I first walked into his classroom it was so colorful and full of artworks, student works and inspirational quotes I felt happy walking into his classroom so I would imagine what a fifth grader would feel like. Mr.Mikalov was very generous in showing me around the classroom where they have their group work, reading area on the rug. He showed me the schedule they follow every week, they do math every day from 12:13 to 12:55 and have lunch every day at 11:26- 12:08 and off course I took a picture of it to know when and what they are doing that time. Mr.Mikalov introduced me to the principal who is very nice and welcomed
Listening: Students will listen to the teacher read the story and ask questions about the shapes in the book. The students will also listen to their classmates as they answer questions and talk about key concepts in the story. Speaking: Students will answer questions about the book. Students will also use the vocabulary to describe the building they made using the different shapes. Visual Representation: I will show the students the different illustrations of houses in Esta es mi casa by Arthur Dorros and the pictures of different shapes in La forma de las cosas by Dayle Ann
The Importance of Recess in Elementary Aged Students During a typical Elementary school day, students spend a majority of their time sitting in a chair listening to a teacher who is lecturing important information to them on the board. One expectation teachers have of their students, is to stay focused and pay attention; teachers want children to absorb as much information as possible. This expectation is okay for teacher to have, but they need to recognize the needs of the child. A child is meant to play, their bodies have a lot of energy and need to have an outlet for that. There is a problem with how we are treating recess in our school systems.
I observed classroom 4 on March 15, 2016. I also observed classroom 4 on May 12, 2016. Inside the classroom they have a lot of different activities for the children to learn and play. There is an area for children to read. The teachers also have a bookshelf for the children to choose a book and the children can read.
Field Reflection This semester, I was at Waldron Mercy Academy for my field placement. I was able to observe eight different teachers through my 9 weeks of attending field, which I found to be very beneficial to see how other teachers work and manage their classes within the same school. Between those eight teachers, I observed sixth, seventh, and eighth grades language arts, sixth grade social studies, seventh and eighth grade science, and eighth grade Latin/study skills/high school prep class. This upcoming week, for my last week of field, I will be observing a seventh-grade history class. I observed many ways to go about classroom management.
She did not do things the way I am taught but she does extremely well dealing with the children. She has learning plans for every child that has short comings in a particular learning area. During circle time, she allows children to engage during topic discussions. Children are free in the environment; they choose what they want to do at their desired time. The children are knowledgeable and are familiar with their
Other participants in the study included a kindergarten class (18 students), one kindergarten teacher, and one assistant. A single subject reversal design was used alternating baseline and intervention for a total of four phases each lasting approximately one to three weeks (McGoey et al., 2007). During the baseline phase, teachers used standard behavior management procedures in the classroom along with the team meeting to design the school-home note and to define goals. The child gave their input to and made changes such as using familiar language to make it their own and to understand the goals. Parents instituted a routine of reinforcement or response cost that correlated with the intervention.
Think to yourself, do you think kids should have homework? Pros: Kids should have homework because first off, it gets children to work on the stuff that they just learned on the subject so that the teacher knows that the student actually knows what they are doing, and if they payed attention in class. Also another reason kids should have homework is because it helps kids be more independent. Further more, homework helps kids be more independent because it teaches kids to know how much time they have, and turn their work in on time in the article it says, ¨It teaches your child to work independently.¨ (Top 14 reasons Why Homework Is Bad For Kids). The last reason, why kids should have homework is because it helps kids retain the knowledge that they learned in class.
Being a father of two girls has been quite a feat. Adelaide is the oldest of two years old and Charly is one. If my wife Nicole and I were to homeschool our children for the first few years of school, we would use an array of different learning and memory techniques to provide them with a strong foundation for learning, as well as, scientifically proven memory strategies to help them accomplish their future educational goals and aspirations. To establish a solid foundation of learning and memory for our children, reading daily would be a staple in the progression of our children’s education. Many studies have suggested that reading to your children is invaluable and with the concept of latent learning, this could greatly enhance their understanding
The method teaches children to read by identifying and pronouncing sounds rather than individual letters. The publication of the research comes as 500,000 year one children in state primary schools in England take the phonics screening check this week, a brief test to measure progress. Teachers and unions initially resisted the use of the check, which followed the coalition 's introduction of compulsory synthetic phonics to teach literacy in state schools. But since then, more teachers have embraced the method, which is supported by research in the UK and abroad. The new study followed a group of 30 children who were taught using phonics for the first time in reception, and tracked their progress for three years, to the end of year two in primary school.
Jekoi D. Lassiter Personal Statement UNCG School of Education Degree Objective: M.Ed. My interest in the field of Education dates back to my primary years of school. Throughout my elementary years, I was always fascinated with aiding my fellow classmates in the area of reading comprehension, through the usage of breaking apart words and using the correct skills and strategies to attack reading passages and questions. This love for literacy increased throughout my grade school career. In my senior year of High School, I was provided the opportunity to participate in an Apprenticeship where I served as a Third Grade Teacher Assistant at one of the local elementary schools.
Between 3 and 7 a lot of cognitive and intellectual development takes place as a result of their expanding understanding of the world through activities such as reading and asking questions. Between 7 and 12 they will be more fluent in skills such as reading and writing and will know what skills and subjects they prefer/ are good at. They will also be able to take certain information and apply it to other situations i.e. being able to use their knowledge of money to buy something from a shop. Between 12 and 19 children tend to put extra effort in to learning the subjects that they are interested in such as science and slightly less in subjects which they feel they do not do as well at.
Community Outreach Academy has approximately 88% of English Language Learners and the mission of the school is to increase students’ language skills. All of the teachers are certified as ELL teachers. Teachers use many different strategies to increase the skills in students and one of them is SDAIE. In addition to that, a supplemental vocabulary curriculum by Steck-Vaughis being implemented for grades second through sixth. For Kindergarten through second grade, students receive a weekly lesson in bi-lingual instruction based upon their Treasures story vocabulary for the week.

I observed the ELL class on Friday October 11th, 2015. The observation was done at Strawberry Point School in the Mill Valley District for 30 minutes with three English Learners from Kindergarten, which one child is Danish and two children are Koreans. I spoke with Monica who is the person responsible for the ELL program at this school. • What placement options are available to ELLs in the district? Do you think the placement options sufficiently meet the needs of ELLs in the district?
