26.11.15 Today when I arrived at the nursery Karen had a talk with me asking how I am settling in and finding things, I have been getting along really well with my colleagues. They have really helped me settle in well and have made me feel very comfortable. Karen asked me if I would like to take the children for welcome time today, I was nervous but felt ready as I had observed her doing it lots of times. When all the children came in asked them to put the box of toys away that they were playing with. Jamie was the special helper today so I asked him to collect the board from the door. I went down the names helping him by sounding out the first letter in each name. He put a tick or a cross beside each person’s name depending on if they were here or not. Once he had done so I asked him to count the number of boys and
Thank you for being my substitute today. Make sure that students are sitting in their assigned seats and take attendance for every period and turn it into the office. If you have any problems do not hesitate to call the front office at *500 and have the student removed. Let me know what happened so I can take care of it on Friday when I return.
A majority of the students in Middle Tennessee Public Schools come from a low- income family household. The school in which I work, Clearview Middle School is not only low- income, but is also a “priority” school. Priority schools are in the bottom five percent in being in the category of lowest- performing in the school district. The population of students at Clearview Middle School are majority African- American, but the cultures among the school are rich and diverse. Many students at Clearview Middle School have high potential of achieving great academic success, but fall short due consistent classroom disruptions throughout the day.

Should Middle/High Schoolers Have Recess? The time is 12:30. The middle schoolers and high schoolers are watching the elementary students in envy on the playground, wishing they could have recess. They have had no chance to talk with friends, be creative, or just have fun outside. Every student needs a chance
Imagine one of those days where your teacher or parent will just not listen to whatever you say even if one knows a hundred percent that you stand correct. Imagine if you have a disease where your brain function differently and your teachers batter you with criticisms. Two students, Rachel and David experience these hardships. Rachel from the short story, “Eleven,” and David from the poem, “David Talamántez on the Last Day of Second Grade,” share similarities including dealing with authority, however, the two students deal with their obstacles with completely contrasting methods.
Have you kept an unknown thoughts hidden, but you secretly wanted someone to know? Well, I’m here to tell you about mine closely guarded realizations I had about myself! I read an article call the Top 10 Things Middle School Students Wish You Knew by Rachel Vail. In this thought provoking article, I could strongly relate to two of these top ten things. My first hidden truth is that I had trouble with organizing my homework. I have six different classes, six different folders, two binders, four notebooks, and so many other school supplies, I lost count. Sometimes I think I didn’t do it, and I find it in a completely different folder. And other times I think I did do it, but it’s sitting crumpled up at the bottom of my backpack. Let’s
Daniel is a five years old male student at Desert Springs Preparatory Elementary School, in the SunKids preschool program, this is his second year with us. Daniel, since a month ago, had an IEP for social, and speech and OT as a related service.

His scores were amazing, and he test it out of Special Ed.
In 1861, the Sunflower State was adopted into the USA as the 34th state. It is home to the geographical center of the United States and not to forget the largest ball of twine ever recorded. With its vast plains and prariers Kansas is the largest producer of wheat and is known as the ‘bread-basket state’. Many schools in this agricultural governance still base their hours around the harvest schedule allowing the children to lend a hand in the tradition of family farming.

During my observation time in a kindergarten classroom, I have noticed that the students have a wide variety of abilities, attention spans, interests, and love for learning. When it comes to the teacher’s instructional strategies, she intentionally takes into consideration all of the above characteristics to make sure each student gets what they need to be most successful. During lessons students are engaged because of the teacher’s ability to implement interests of the student’s into things and giving them options. If an error occurs during a lesson, the teacher normally, allows for the student who got something wrong to try again, or to call on a friend to help them out. This way the students are still giving the answers and not the teacher just telling them the information. The teacher chooses a lot of small group instruction and centers where she can work with a small group, but then, easily monitor all the other groups to make sure they are on task and doing their work.
