What does it mean to you being a teacher? What kind of identity do you have as a teacher? What have you learned about teaching and learning? Have you ever ask yourself that kind of questions? If not, it is time to start. Plan your future lesson based on your past experience and bring the best practice.
Plan your Lesson.
Always plan your lesson. Set up your goals, engage your students, organize your resources and develop the strategy. The most important question to ask yourself is what do you want for children.
Plan your activities based on the curriculum. Follow these three simple rules to suit the best activities with a proven result. Reinforce, Extend, and Challenge. Start with the question: what your little learners already know?
Learn from the past.
Think how you will engage children, what are the most powerful strategies you used to promote learning in the past? How can I use it for my lesson?
Develop a relationship with your students. What has the biggest impact on children learning? Right, it is family, neighbors, school, friends, and teacher. Yes, you are one of them.
Children learn through a different experience and context. What did your student learn at school today? Support the high-quality learning and give every child the opportunity to learn the way that is best for his individual needs.
The importance of the curriculum. It is important to connect your student to the curriculum. To see what is taught, how it is taught and how it relates to the children’s world.
Your Little Learner.
Children learn best through the activities that are relevant to their lives. Take a look at these activities and try to include them in your lesson: talking, reading, predicting, building, role-playing, sorting, counting, classifying, balancing, measuring, writing, drawing, socializing, pretending, self-regulating, running, sharing, and exploring.
Think back about your own experience. What was the most powerful experience of your own teaching and learning?
