mATH AS A LEARNING Topic activity. Mertice Anders EDU 652 Dr. Wallis Stemm November 26, 2012 Revised On May 30 , 2012. Topics:.
With preschoolers, make every day activities and events a counting exercise, the best way to learn is when you don’t even realize you’re learning something at all. Whatever you are doing there is something to be counting, at dinner “how many people are eating; one, two, three, four, etc. So, how many cups do we need? Four. Then count the cups, plates spoons or forks, etc. The possibilities are endless, you can incorporate a counting exercise with everything you do (2011).
To revised this activity, and implement Program Learning Outcome 6 “Technology Resource to facilitate effective assessment and Evaluation” and Program Learning Outcome 7 “ Utilize technology to collect and analyze data, interpret results, and communicate Findings. I include a computer base Program that would keep track of the student’s progress on counting and identifying the numbers 1-10. The children would be put into small groups according to the pre-observations and introduced to the Teach Smart program, which is on an interactive computer whiteboard. Because of the age of these students, this program has been revised to meet their understand and performance. Every child has a picture of themselves in order to enter the program, they find their picture and the information is set for that child to work in. All activities provide the right level of difficulty, tailored to each child so that they can progress through emergent, developing, developed, and extension levels at their own speed. Teach Smart supports ALL children-from those in an intervention to meet grade level to advanced, while reducing the teacher’s workload. At the end, I will get an print out of each child results, findings that has been collected.
