Classroom Observation #1
As a student majoring in Elementary Education I have learned different tenancies to teach
children. On Friday, September 9th I observed a first-grade class at Meadow Point Elementary
School. Ms. Kristin Tretten allowed me to observe the core and guided reading section of her
class from 9:30 am-11:00 am. Ms. Tretten had a female teacher assistance (TA). Her TA helped
the students in her class that had disabilities. One student had autism, and another had down
syndrome. There are a total of twenty students registered in Ms. Tretten class; however, there
were only sixteen students in attendance that day, twelve girls and five boys. Even though I have
five years of experience in teaching, I was looking forward to seeing how another teacher
impacts their students? lives.
Before I go into detail about this session I observed in this classroom, I thought it is
important to review the Colorado Department of Education reading, writing standards. The first
grade standards are:
1) Comprehending and Fluency reading a variety of literary texts are the beginning traits
2) Decoding words require the application of alphabetic principles, letter sound, and
3) Understanding word structure, word relationships and word families that need to be
demonstrated to begin to read.
When I first arrived the classroom I noticed how well put together she had her classroom.
There were a total of twenty desks for the students to sit and they were split into four separate
groups. Each group of desks have and assigned animal to be identified by. Those animals were a
raddle snake, grizzle bear, black widow spider, and a lizard. There were bookshelves, a white [SHORTENED TITLE UP TO 50 CHARACTERS] 3
board. Over by the reading carpet there was a calendar, multiplication table, and bullion boards
so that the students can display their work for parents and others to see. During this section of this first-grade class that they do on daily bases and during this
section the students had four rotations each lasted about 15-20 minutes. During these four
rotations they worked on (1) interactive activities on the computers, (2) partner reading, (3)
Reading worksheets, and (4) Vocabulary with the teacher. First when the students were working
on the interactive activities on the computers, they had to answer comprehension questions at the
end of each activity. The second rotation the students had to sit down on the reading carpet and
read books to another student or a stuffed animal. Then, in the third rotation the students had to
sit quietly at their desks and work on a worksheet. This worksheet that the students were working
on was called ?vowel sounds?. They had a list of words and they had to sound out the words
listed and put them under the correct vowel sound. Last, the students worked one-on-one with
the teacher on their weekly vocabulary words. [SHORTENED TITLE UP TO 50 CHARACTERS] 4
