My observation was completed on September 18, and September 25. I was in each classroom for one hour. I was at Willow Creek Elementary where I was able to observe first grade, fourth grade, and two second grade classes. All of these classes contained around 20-22 students.

They staple the quiz and homework together so it 's basically easier for her to grade and keep organized. She was telling me that it has make her grading process so much easier on top of not having near as much paper everywhere waiting to be graded. I noticed that when it comes to rewarding good behavior and discouraging negative behavior was actually pretty similar at elementary level and high school. The only difference I saw was in high school if a student was acting up they would take to a student in the hall about whatever the issue was , then bring them back into the class and there wouldn 't be anymore issues. Where the elementary for good behavior tells the student to get "cat cash" if they ask a good question or doing something super good. I didn 't seem any students being embarrassed or called out in front of the whole class
