Robert T Final Copy Organizing a Positive Learning Environment for Children A positive learning environment for children begins at home. Everyone has a role to play in keeping a positive environment for children but the most important people are the parents. Starting children early with a positive learning environment can be a big factor in their lives. Organizing a positive learning for children will teach them how to become successful students in school. Everything that is done at home, by the parents, can be taken to school and used to promote learning for their child.
Having a handout with this information could be an important tool for the parents to utilize all year long. Also, by understanding that everyone has different schedules and trying to be available for meetings in the evenings at least once a week, she is showing sensitivity to those parents that can make the time and get to the school for evening meetings. By giving step-by-step directions to access her via email, those parents with access to a computer will benefit by being able to contact her that way as well. The teacher is showing insensitivity to the parents of children in her classroom in a couple of ways. First, by using the term “disclosure document”, she makes the assumption that the parents to whom she is speaking will understand
This case study occurs in a small elementary classroom in the Northeast United States. The teacher being observed is named Linda Walker. Linda is a new teacher and the focus of the observation takes place during her reading lesson. Beginning the Lesson Miss Walker begins the day by taking attendance and lunch count. I thought it was important to note that Miss Walker took advantage of this opportunity to involve her students and have them use their math skills.
Schools and Society: Communication with Families 1 I believe the teacher staying late at least once a week shows an understanding to parents, not everyone works the same shifts or can be available while their children are at school. Having a handout for parents to look over was very insightful of the teacher. It will most likely cover all or most of the information given at this meeting and gives parents a chance to follow along with their handout. Also, they can take the handout home with them, giving them more time to come up with any questions that they may have regarding the material. It was sensitive of the teacher to consider any language barrier by having translators present at this speech.
The center’s lead teachers; Sammy, Kayla, Angie, Amie, and Cloe all have their CDA’s; furthermore, Amie, Sammy, and Cloe are getting their Associates in Early Childhood Education. They also have assistances in the rooms depending on the number of children. All of the caregivers are required to take 12 hours of training per year. I was interested in observing Amie’s class, she had preschoolers. She, as well as all the other
During my placement if a parent was to ask me something I didn’t know how to answer, or didn’t feel it was my role to respond, then I knew who to refer them to in order for the appropriate staff to be involved. In one occasion I was given some information - by a parent who was picking up their child early, who I was waiting with and there to greet the parent – about who would be collecting their child from school the next few days, which I was asked to give to the class teacher, I did this straight after so that the teacher had the important information. I think a way in which to come across professional to parents as a student, when an enquiry was made to me which I couldn’t answer, was to explain that although I wasn’t aware of that information I could refer them to which member of staff was aware straight away, this meant I was helping to the point that I could which resulted in the parents enquiry being answered by the appropriate member of staff, instead of just responding to the parent that I couldn’t answer but not helping them out by referring them to who
Most online programs allows you to turn in any work by the end of the work day which makes it easy to still complete your responsibilities like taking care your children and going to work. With traditional classroom you have to bet a school at a certain time on a certain day. This means that you have a set amount of learning hours a weeks and you also have a set arrival and dismissal time each day. Online learning means that your classroom is basically your home whether it is your bedroom, kitchen or a designated office space. All of you communication with classmates and instructors is done over the computer, e-mails, and telephone.
Some parents allow their children to stay home alone for the first few hours until their return, and some chose an alternative method of after school programming. I have chosen to use afterschool programming for my granddaughter, as I am helping her mother to co-parent. In my observation I have learned that the afterschool program that she attends may be no more that a glorified babysitting operation. When she comes home her homework is wrong, messy, and incomplete. She tells me she has been taught by her teacher things like how to spell the word, “butt” and how to look for leaks by locating brown spots on the ceiling.
The nutritional content of the food will be stated, and parents can come for a taste test any day. - Weekly themes/lesson plans: This would give parents information on how the school day goes, with copies for each parent to take home, and words of songs/poems that are taught. This would give all parents, but especially parents of varying cultural backgrounds an understanding of how we work. - Childcare committee’s/ Sligo family resource centre I would verbally make parents aware of places of interest that may further their parenting skills, and help them understand child development.
Classroom Observation and Reflection Paper Diana Sanamyan MTE / 501 February 13, 2012 Dr. David Bolton Classroom Observation and Reflection Paper I observed Ms. Shakhramanyan’s kindergarten class at John Marshal Elementary in Glendale, CA. There were twenty-two kids in her class and five of them were ELL students Ms. Shakhramanyan taught the class for the entire day. The students spent most of their time in the classroom during the day. Ms. Shakhramanyan started her class with morning greetings and announcements, took the attendance and told the students the objectives of that day. I noticed how she addressed concepts about print during her morning routine.
