The group that I had chosen to observe was within my field placement. My field placement is at a school called Creekview Intermediate for 5th and 6th graders and I was able to sit in with a class to help educate students about conflict. We talked about ways to resolve conflict ways to prevent it as well as a way to get help when one sees conflict arising. This was a goal directed activity to help the students understand conflict and to try to avoid it. This was a great experience for me as it was one of my first times in an actual classroom setting as a teacher’s aide/helper. The date that this took place was August 31, 2015 which was a Monday and we went in right after lunch was over around 1:15 P.M. The students seemed relaxed as well since …show more content…
These students were put together in a classroom due to their emotional disorders (Toseland, R.W., & Rivas, R.F. 2012).

Here we will help students talk about ways in which their home life may stress them out as well as ways school life may stress them out.

I was kind of surprised at how well the students behaved they were participating by raising their hands to speak and properly answered the questions being asked. When one student spoke too much we would tell him/her to let others speak and share. Or when one student would answer the question wrong to make others laugh, we would address it by saying do you really think that’s the best way to go about it. This student stood out to me. It seems as though he has created himself a role in this classroom. I think this group works so well together because they started in the classroom at the same time they were all new to the school with each other. Therefore they helped each other which helped them get along quite
