Better Essays
Before the students came to the classroom, I placed their morning cursive worksheets on their desks. Mrs. Jackson gave me a copy of her lesson plans for the week (which she must hand in to the principal every Monday morning by 8:00). Today Mrs. Jackson did not greet the students at the door, but worked in her classroom as the students came in. Mrs. Jackson began the class by introducing the website, www.pearsonsuccessnet.com to the students. This is a website that goes with their reading book, which students can log on to at home to practice vocabulary words, reading stories, and taking quizzes. Mrs. Jackson went through this week’s vocabulary words with the students, while I cut out the vocabulary words and posted them on the classroom …show more content…
Mrs. Jackson had the students read part of the story, When Charlie McButton Lost Power, as groups at their tables. As the children read the story, Mrs. Jackson and I walked around to the tables and listened to students read. After everyone finished the story, Mrs. Jackson led the class in a grand discussion, which focused on the characters of the story. Following the discussion, Mrs. Jackson had me hand the students their reading notebooks. She then led the students in a mini lesson on characters using a flipbook that the students added to their reading notebooks. During the lesson, I observed the students and gave them assistance when …show more content…
I liked the way that Mrs. Jackson posted them on the wall and had the students practice the different levels of volume. I think that it is good to let the students know that there will be times when they will be able to talk in the classroom and what will be expected of them. I also like the idea of giving tickets out as rewards for good behavior or for acts of kindness. The rewards seem to have a more positive effect on a student’s behavior then the checks do for his or her bad

    The final activity I observed was a reading workshop in the form of a book-club. Students were instructed to brainstorm topics that they would be interested in learning via peer to peer classroom discussion as the teachers writes the topics on the board. Next, the teacher instructs the students to choose a book and determine what they think the book is about from the cover to teach students how to make inferences and implications by referring to the pictures. The teacher then brings out a box of books and tells students to choose a book of interest and the students read…

    During group reading time I or one of the other teachers or helpers in the classroom would pull a group of four or five kids to the group table to read a book related to what their teacher was teaching that week. As we read the book each student would take time to read, and show the group how to sound out the different vocabulary. The observation of the group time, showed me my target student’s ability to develop his own option of the book, his reasoning on why an event in the book happened, and his representation of the book.…

Each lesson includes a reading component that may include her reading aloud to the class, requesting students to read aloud, or having students read silently at their desks.

    She asks learners orally questions about the lesson that the learners must answer individually. A group activity is also very popular in her classroom where the learners must have a group discussion on the lesson. Lastly she gives the learners a written revision activity on the lesson that the learners have to complete in their scripts. In the classroom the teacher makes use of the prescribed textbooks and likes to add slide shows (visual and audio) on the overhead projector, to her lessons to make it more interesting for the learners. 2.4 Monitoring of individuals, groups and whole class…
