SIOP Lesson Plan Reflection

Decent Essays
I feel like I have grown tremendously after going through the experience of teaching Kindergarten students. Now I feel more capable to teach any other grade level. I feel more secure of myself because now I know what I am doing. I know what to look for when teaching ELL students. Although SIOP Lesson plans are detailed and time consuming, I enjoyed the results obtained when that type of lesson plan is implemented in the classroom. I like to learn new things and grow as a professional. This experience has been perfect for me to think out of the box and be more creative when preparing my lesson

There were two articles that had a large influence on my thinking about self-identity and professionalism. “Teachers on Teaching” is an article that explained that children are concrete and literal minded people.

    They are the most effective way to get all of your students involved, formatively assess them, engage them in critical thinking and much more. After gaining practicum experience, the “Thumbs-Up When Ready and Processing Cards” is a TPT that I find especially useful. When I am teaching, I find it difficult to gauge when my students are ready to share. By incorporating a simple thumbs-up or a fun processing card, their readiness becomes very clear to me. The other TPT that I am eager to use in my classroom is the “Hold Ups.” These are a fun, fast way to see where students are at.…

    All of these things are very valuable to my learning because of the way they teach me more about how I learn and what I need to do to continue to learn in a fun and interesting way.

    I believe that our team-teaching lesson plan went as planned. Although there are some areas of improvement, the overall experience was something that I have never done before. I have taken the feedback that the other group members have given to better understand what I would do if I were to ever teach a team-teaching lesson again. I think that this was a great experience as I gained knowledge and a better understanding on how to go about teaching a tam-teaching lesson. Making the lesson plan as a team was very fast and efficient.…

    The success in homework, was given in motivation, monitoring, and demonstrating what to do. I thought the teachers did a quite well with opening their classrooms as a open and positive atmosphere. You could see the students really open up and ask questions. They were given the attention that I felt was lacking in the classroom for them and they really needed to be given positive feedback and praise for understanding the material. There are certain skills that students need in order to complete homework and if they didn’t understand it in class, they wouldn’t be able to complete it at home.…

    Once we were able to get into a rhythm with working with one another, I think we were able to learn a lot from one another. By having the opportunity to watch another practicum student teach, I was able to reflect upon my own teaching and find way to improve my style and approaches. Being able to collaborate with someone else is helpful and also makes the workload more manageable. It also ensure that there are always two people observing the lesson, and therefore providing two perspectives that can be discussed. Up to this point, we have been simply collaborating on lessons.…
