Crystal Isaac's curator insight, April 7, 2013 3:57 AM

This is a pin interest blog I found which highlights management techniques across the globe when dealing with Early Stage 1. It shows various resources that teachers have found useful when dealing with roles and responsibilities in kindergarten.

 

Through the site I have found great examples of student responsibilities in the classroom such as making smart choices, using inside voices and behaviour and rewards charts. Alex Moore (2002,p.4) descibes Skinner's 'law of positive reinforcement' and how the receipt of tangile rewards may encourage repeated behavioural patterns to effectively train students. These colourful displays, ideas for rewards and available print outs provided, make it a useful resource for teachers looking at implementing and displaying management strategies around the classroom.


Displaying any of the resources this site offers as a teacher, will also give students a constant reminder of the rules and expectations of them in the classroom. Such as the picture captioned, which is a handy technique a teacher added, showing 'reward balls' students are able to pick out of the jar once they have done something good in the class'.

 

It is also a handy resource that provides teachers a chance to view perspectives across the globe, with links to websites in which teachers can see how they were implemented and if/how they were useful. This site is also a perfect example of PCK and what occurs when "...the teacher interprets the subject matter and finds different ways to represent it and make it accessible to learners" (Mishra & Koehler, 2006, p.1021). Although all teachers are accessing the same site and resources, they are blending the content and pedagogical knowledge to interpret and implement it in various ways.

 

Pre-service teachers, like myself, could also find this site a particularly good resource when entering classrooms for the first time, as a 'simplistic approach towards development of pedagogy' (Mishra & Koehler, 2006, p.1045). It also not only provides cheap and practical resources, but also ideas for implementation to allow students to feel included in the process. Teachers are able to interactively have the class participate in creating and utilising management techniques, further linking to literacy outcomes as students must use their own semantic knowledge and regulating processes to create a management technique that is inventive and that they all agree to adhere to!

Eunmi Yang's curator insight, December 14, 2013 2:53 PM

This video shows a powerpoint with visuals that can help the students understand composing and decomposing numbers. The video shows a visual representation of the number and then shows how tens are composed and why they are composed when a number is added to it. I believe that this is an effective way of teaching because the students are able to see what is really happening when they are composing numbers and so they are able to understand why something happens when they are using the algorithm method. This video is kind of like the base ten method that I used when I was teaching composing to my 3rd graders and I think that this is a great lesson to also have in addition to the base ten method lesson.

Two Awesome Presentations on Digital Literacy for Teachers

Two Awesome Presentations on Digital Literacy for Teachers | Education | Scoop.it

"Literacy is a concept that is really hard to define or contain within a single semiotic field. There are also divisive views over the meaning of literacy. The traditional camp views it as the basic ability to read and write; encoding and decoding meaning from chunks of text or verbal output. On the other hand, the progressivists look at it from a different angle. For them, literacy is not divorced from the social context in which it is conceived of. Therefore, to talk about a single literacy is analogous to saying there is only one group of people populating this planet."
