Rebecca McKenzie Adolescence Observation 04/23/13 A. The adolescence classroom: a. Mr. List the 8th grade math teacher I observed had all of his desks in straight rows facing the marker boards. Each desk has a large flat top with a pencil holder on it. Underneath the chair is a basket that holds all their things so it doesn’t clutter up the walk ways between the desks.
There are developmental toys scattered around on the floor to provide infants with a variety of challenges. The teacher sits on the floor spending time, and playing with all four infants. The classroom floor was mostly carpeted except for the diapering and food preparation area. The furniture in the classroom is designed for their comfort. There are two rocking chairs so teachers can feed and rock babies comfortably.
During circle time for example, the teacher has all the students sitting around her while she goes over the morning activities. During this time she has the kids go over the month, the day, the year, the weather, reads them a book, and we sing a song together as a class. During circle time all the students are supposed to remain seated with the legs “criss crossed”. I observed that several of the students with special needs had a difficult time remaining in this seated position, while others seemed to have no problem with it. The teacher, I found was very understanding and knew her students very well, and therefore she was a bit more lenient with those that tended to have a hard time
This is your truck. Okay? Now let’s race!” Child one continued to sit in front of the truck, non-responsive to child two. Instead of playing with child two, child one stared blankly into the next room, and had drool forming at his bottom lip. Child one pushed himself up off of the floor and used the couch to hold himself up while he tried to balance before he began to waddle towards the kitchen, seemingly unnoticed by his parents.
NAEYC stated, “Children can work on puzzles themselves, without the help of adults or other children. They can also work together on large puzzles and practice compromising and getting along.” Teachers are only there to guide the children. At the Manipulatives Center, they usually get the puzzles and they’re really enjoying it a lot. Also, doing a puzzle with their classmate allows for the growth of social skills as they work together and communicate about what fits where. The act of manipulating each piece helps the children to solve a problem and to develop critical thinking.
Abstract Have you ever tried rubbing your stomach and patting your head at the same time? What about doing your homework or studying for your math test while watching television? It is tough to focus on a task when you are distracted doing something else, isn't it? In my project, I have investigated how distractions affect your focus on a task, such as driving, by looking at how gaming scores are affected as you're talking on a cell phone or having a conversation with a friend. 1.

Through my studying in early childhood education I have learned many many things and one was about how children are still learning when they are sleep or napping. A lot is happening in the brain of a slumbering preschooler, including processing and storing memories that are the foundation for learning. That makes naptime as important as programs focused on fighting bullying or learning to wait their turn. Some children display behavioral problem due to lack of sleep or no nap like impatience and an explosive temper are noted as characteristics to look for in interactions with friends or siblings. Academically, when the child starts to receive notes from the teacher about a child regressing in skills or displaying a sudden indifference to learning, a lack of rest might be the answer.
He is very surprised by the object because the words on the page do not move like the words on the screen of their mechanical teacher. The book describes the school from centuries earlier, where there was a real man as teacher that gave homework and asked questions to his students, and all the boys and girls went into a special building. Margie is very curious but her mother calls her because it is time for school. School for Tom and Margie takes place at home in a room where they do homework and hand it in via a proper slot in a mechanical teacher. The theme is probably "the influence of technology on the process of teaching."
