Preschool Lesson: God Made Me

Decent Essays
On August 23, 2015 I taught a preschool lesson with a Co teacher about “God Made Me.” I volunteer at Eagles Landing First Baptist Church in McDonough. During the lesson I read the story God Made You. We also read a scripture from a kids Bible the scripture was Psalm 139:13-14. The lesson lasted for two hours. After reading, I would ask the toddlers questions from the book. For example, who made you? And are you loved by God? After reading we would have song time and then craft time. Ways that I was actively engaged was by creating the lesson for that day. My church has a preschool curriculum for the teachers to go by. My Co teacher and I would take turns with planning a lesson. We worked collaboratively to teach students. While I would teach my Co teacher would keep the students focused on me reading the book and doing the activity. As a teacher, I could incorporate school service learning by offering it as extra credit for students. I could also have service learning as an opportunity for a field trip for the students. Students will be having fun because they are not in the classroom, but they will also be giving back to the community at the same time. For my English Language Arts Content, my students could read to the elementary school kids in their library. This lesson showed how working collaboratively …show more content…
The toddlers became excited when it was time to walk down the hallways so the rule I taught them was to whisper and walk in a single file line. Before we left every room I would tell them the same rule. Once we made our rounds we came back and read the story. The students were then instructed to draw their family at the end of the lesson. I would talk to each student about their family and ask them questions about their lives. To finish the lesson we watched a movie. The students were excited and engaged because the topic was something they were familiar

    The goal of guided reading is for students to use these strategies independently on their way to becoming fluent, skilled readers. This will also help them to become independent writers. I model for both reading and writing and I do this through mini-lessons, and conferences because reading and writing skills do not develop naturally. “Children will internalize the meaning of written language more easily if they see appropriate role model’s writing, and when the teacher interacts with their students as they write.” (Dixon-Krauss, 1996). Teachers need to read aloud many stories.…

    Both parents also reported that they expected to work close with the teachers and be able to assist their child’s learning. They feel that it is necessary and appropriate between parents and teachers to have consistent contact.

    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.…

    I use many of the strategies mentioned in Reading, Writing, and Learning in ESL by Suzanne Peregoy and Owen Boyle in my first grade classroom. Sight words practice, big books, read alouds, choral reading, and songs are just a few. I have been missing a lot of other strategies that could be really helpful, though. I am trying to step away from the notion of assuming things about my students, and I am slowly learning how to examine the big…

    He, also, at times, ask for students ' advice in regards to homework assignments and then write this information on the board. Allowing students to have a say in their homework assignments promotes positive social interaction between not only the teacher but also among the students. Mr. Colette also set aside time with each student, if needed, within his homework policy.
