    I designed meaningful learning environments that integrated math, literacy, science, social studies, and the arts. I believe that I could have incorporated each of these in each lesson, but feel that I did not do as well as I anticipated. I did however; incorporate at least two in each lesson. Each project, I sat down and looked at the standards that could be met during that time. Some of the following are examples on how I integrated math, literacy, science, social studies, and the arts. I incorporated literacy with reading and letters. I incorporated math by counting body parts with the children. I incorporated science by being outside and using the physical environment. I incorporated social studies by allowing the children to address career choices. I incorporated the arts by expanding their knowledge and growth of language skills. I could expand on what I planned to meaningfully integrate other content areas by sitting down and using the resources that I have to plan accordingly. If I had more time, I feel that I could have integrated each area into each project. The children’s interests were captured by asking them daily what type of materials they wanted to use for their projects. The children found that using different materials appealed their interests. They were all excited when I mentioned painting on paper plates. This expanded their ideas of how to make projects. I have photographs that are evidence that they were engaged; this shows they were engaged…

    Pain, everyone feels pain in their own way. There are some that have a high tolerance for it and then there are the ones that can’t handle it at all. I feel that I have a high tolerance for pain because there was a time when I was playing with my younger brother, we were sliding down the railing of the stairs of my home when I leaned too far in the opposite direction and next thing I know is that I am falling towards the ground, but not before I took glass down with me and cut my arm. At first I…

    I am frightened by the sight of myself as I look at all the cords that are twisting and turning in and out of my body like snakes. A breathing mask is around my bald head as I lay peacefully but not breathing anymore. I see beauty behind the hospital gown and dirty skin. I look to the right of the hospital bed, a red light flashes, like an ambulance, from the monitor. The monitor isn’t going up and down like mountains but is a flat plain of land. Not a pebble on its surface. The moment of…

    The power to help someone feel better physically or emotionally can be as simple as writing a letter, hugging someone or administering medications. These tasks are simple when done freely with two hands. Our hands are tools that we can use to help patients, family or friends when they need it the most. Most everybody has two hands, but not everybody uses them for good. To use our hands for good in healing others, is the same as doing God’s work on earth (O’brien, 2001). After reading the…
