skills enhancement.

2. What accommodations were made for the identified SEN students in the
They dont use accommodations, but I thing in my opinion If the student have a math class the
teacher should give the SEN student simple number while give the regular student more numbers
than a SEN student.

3. Was there any assistive technology, other equipment or materials used with the
identified SEN students? If yes, please describe the equipment that was used and
what it was used for.
No, they dont have because its still a now school.

4. What teaching strategies did your MST use with the identified SEN students?
Firstly, she observes their behavior and sees if he repeats the bad behavior many times, then she write
what he did on paper. If he repeats daily that they identify he has a problem, then she talks to the
principle to bring a therapist to Child Case Study.

5. Where there any other school staff that worked with the identified SEN students?
If yes, please explain their role and what they did with the identified SEN student.
To be honest they not have staff for SEN.

6. Do you think that SEN students should be included in the classroom or taught in
class specifically for SEN students? Why / Why not?
I think the SEN student should be included in the classroom with the regular student because
this with help them to feel more acceptor of the community. Also, the regular student will.

Reflections on Observation Task 3: Supporting Learning through the Performing

Arts: Music and Movement
Read the questions below and choose one to answer
1. The creative arts teach children that problems can have more than one solution

and that questions can have more than one answer. One of the large lessons kids
can learn from practicing creative arts is that there are many ways to see and
interpret the world. In your opinion, why is this important and what impact does
this have on education?
Help the child For example, when the children feel angry, they will be drawing strongly and fast.
While, if they feel happy they will be drawing slowly.

2. Creative thinking and reasoning have been identified and highlighted as an

essential twenty-first-century skill by many business, education, community and
government leaders. In your opinion, do you think that this is an important skill
for children to learn? Why or why not.
Creative thinking helps to develop the child's self-confidence and helps him to experience new
ideas and methods, without fear of thinking is wrong or make mistakes.

3. Some people view creative arts education as a luxury and do not help with the
building blocks of child development. In your opinion, what are the benefits for
children who are engaged in creative arts in school?
The benefits for children, who are engaged in creative arts in school, make the child able to think
outside the specific frameworks that restrict thinking. Child urged the innovation and creativity and
raises the self-confidence.

Observation Task 4
Choose, justify and reflect on the selection of appropriate routines and explain practical aspects of their

Reflect on how routines can impact classroom environment (pacing, preventive CRM,
student engagement)
Choose and justify the selection of appropriate routines (entering/leaving the class,
transitions, submitting work, resource distribution) in a range of contexts (ages, gender,
class size, school context, class dynamics, parental support)
Explain practical aspects of implementation (clear instructions consistency)

The task is made up of two activities:
Activity 1: Observing Classroom Routines and Procedures
Activity 2: Planning for/Developing Routines and Procedures
You are to complete BOTH Activity 1 AND Activity 2.

Activity One: Observing Classroom Routines and Procedures

Though there are many routines and procedures all over the school such as returning from assembly or
walking in the hallways, this task focuses on what happens inside of your classroom only.
During the first week of your teaching practice observe your MST and her/his classroom. Make a note
of five (5) routines that you see her/him use every day inside of the classroom. Fill in the table below
to describe EACH routine; when and where it is used; and what is the aim of the routine or the student
behavior that it hopes to achieve.

After the Task - Reflection

Reflect on the routine of the classroom and how it is was effective with the students? Explain how this routine will affect student learning in
a KG class.
- The children respond to instructions for the teacher, and the routine helps the student to know the system of the school and rules. Also,
teach the student to respect time. Also help the teacher to manage the classroom.

Activity Two: Planning for/Developing Routines and Procedures

Plan the routines for one of your classes. The activity expects that you will teach the class. It may
be a class that you teach for an observation by your MST/MCT or just a practice class that you
teach with the permission of your MST. The lesson can be incorporated as one of your formal
observations if your MST/MCT decides. In order to complete the activity you are required
(whether the lesson is one of your formal observations or not) to fill in and submit the planning
sheet below.
Before you begin to complete the table talk a little bit about the class/lesson in which this plan
for routines is to be used. Include:

Lesson objectives
Main activities in the lesson
Grouping of students during each main activity
Behavior expected during each activity (e.g. sharing resources; changing stations;
Where are the transitions in the lesson? What are they: (e.g. moving from plenary to
group work between main activity one and main activity two)
