In “The Lesson” and in “Commencement Speech, Kenyon College.”, the teacher 's attempt to open up the kids’ minds to the “rat race” that many people find themselves in and only want to help the children for their future. Although people question teaching methods and want to only have their own ideals put into their child’s mind, there are things that every person should be aware of and teachers are the people who can be sure that every child is aware of the world around them in order to live a better
She pointing at the book title and started to read, she uses tempo and volume. She would use deep voices and make sound when the caterpillar ate. Every time she finishes each page she would pass it to each infant. The infant that pointed at each fruit or food the teacher repeated the name of the fruit. It took about 4 to 6 minutes then some infants started to be distracted with the door or started to walk away.
The Beanie Babies Program is a reading program designed for Cycle 1 elementary classrooms, to work in tandem with classroom reading practice routines, such as a silent reading or team reading routine. It utilizes stuffed animals in order to teach a wide variety of decoding and comprehension strategies to help young students learn to read. The program is comprised of a series of Beanie Babies, each assigned a particular reading strategy. For example, the Stretchy Snake beanie baby is assigned the stretching strategy in which the reader stretches out each syllable of a word, sounding it out, in order to help read the word as a whole; The Questioning Owl would encourage students to ask questions about what their reading in order to further comprehension, and so forth. Various posters can be placed around the classroom explaining the strategies connect with each animal.
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.
The little boy laughs while an older boy teases him with a toy. I also see him interact with another child for the first time when he tells a little girl about the instructions the teacher has given. The little boy and girl then go to the carpet and take out a skeleton puzzle to do. But after being told multiple times to be quiet, they were told to clean up and read a book instead. The boy and his friend (girl) are separated because they still whisper to each other while reading.
(Alice Robb) America has grown over the years, but we still have a problem with gender stereotypes. The toy industry stereotypes children by peer pressuring them to conform to society. Gendered colors that advertisements and toy stores use affect children in their formative years because what they learn stays with them for their entire lives. According to Jo Paoletti, “girl’s preference for pink is learned, not innate; cognitive research suggests that all babies actually prefer blue.”
Finally, the teacher could help the children feel happy and confident about their creativity. It is important that teachers do not jump in and do everything for the children, but to allow them to problem solve on their own. EX: Lilly was playing with the new play-doh toys and could not figure out how the “spaghetti maker” (using her creativity) worked. Her teacher watched her as she tried to solve the problem. After a couple of minutes, Lilly found another way to make her spaghetti.
Some good ways to talk to your kids is by using different race dolls, story books, at home, and diverse schools or daycares. Kristen Olson, says, “ Children aren’t blind to race. Like all of us, they notice differences, seeing that some people have darker or lighter skin or curlier or straighter hair than others. Children must be aware that this topic must be important because unlike their other questions, these ones go unanswered and leave their parents with looks of worry .Discuss race directly with your kids.
EXTENSIONS By using question #7 on the Measuring with Toothpicks student sheet as a class problem, students can practice their estimation skills. Have students work with a partner in a role-play. One student can pretend to be the book-cover maker and the other student can be the owner of the book. With no actual toothpicks available, the owner should describe (estimate) the length and width of the book to the book-cover maker.
One of the learning outcomes are it helps children to enhance their understanding of the ways their own language (s) works and help them to develop the strategies for learning new languages. Besides, by using Language Awareness Approach, children can explore new languages and discuss similarities and differences among the languages. Last but not least, children get to discover the relationship between language and identity through Language Awareness Approach. The activities that I planned for the children will strike a balance between teacher-directed and child-centred because language learning is about both explicit and implicit knowledge.

Hi Tiffany, There are so many innovative ways we can use technology to better our experiences as educators. We can use technology to support diversity among many methods in which can be used. I love observing my students exploring with technology with many learning subjects. This experience helps them to become better communicators and problem solvers. Thank you Tiffany I wish you the best of your endeavors.
