Basically, just talk to that student one on one and really get to know them. Another way teachers can build rapport with their students, is having an open door policy and be honest with them so there can be a mutual trust and respect. Not only is having a strong rapport with students important, it is also key to have a positive learning environment. A positive learning environment should be where students feel both emotionally and physically safe in the classroom. There are several ways that teachers can have good classroom management to ensure they have a positive learning environment.
It is extremely important that the relationship build is one that invites learning and makes the children feel at ease with their educator. This is why it is important to be what many refer to as a good teacher; or as I most recently learned as being an "intentional teacher". As most of us can remember a moment in our schooling years we might have had a favorite teacher. This teacher understood your learning style; she was fun and made you feel like coming to school every day. Well thankful to her good teaching skills or her intentional teaching she build up a positive relationship with you that was based on good communication, mutual respect and support.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE This classroom will inspire a lifelong love of learning, cultural appreciation and environmental sensitivity. Where students will learn responsibility, how t cooperatively interact with each other and their community as well as the freedom to learn creatively. Our days together will be focused on honesty, respect, kindness, gentleness, cooperation, thoughtful resolution, positive reinforcement, awareness of differences and tolerance to encourage and motivate students to strive for their full potential. CLASSROOM RULES Rule 1: Be considerate and kind to my fellow classmates, instructors and visitors. Rule 2: Respect the opinions and learning styles of your fellow classmates.
Students will mirror your voice level. “Give praise to the entire class as frequently as possible (Teacher Vision).” I feel classroom management will come with more and more classroom experience and I hope to gain more from my cooperating teacher with the time I have in the classroom with her. Working with Jenn in class to create a project based learning lesson was a great experience. I was able to learn ideas from her in her lessons to use in class. We were able to see how similar our teaching philosophies were, which was nice to see that someone else had the thoughts and passion to be a touching teacher like I do.
Therefore, verbal communication is an area I frequently use in class to communicate with my peers as well as my professor. I also have active listening my classmate’s stories and have critical thinking to giving feedbacks to them. How has this class added to your knowledge of working with children? This class added to my knowledge of working with children such as I usually pay attention and have active listening when children talk to me that also help me to meet children’s needs. I also feel more confident to speak up at
Guest speakers will be in attendance to share personal experiences and achievements they have encountered in the classroom with the use of technology. We like to include guest speakers because they create a sense of motivation for our teachers as well as provide them with someone to relate to. Our instruction will be presented on a projector by PowerPoint. All of our participants will have access to the information reviewed in the PowerPoint in hand-out form, so that they can follow the instruction without difficulty. Our training course is designed to be undemanding and light, so that our teachers feel relaxed and excited about learning.
Education becomes the starting foundation of human interaction. I have viewed the student-centered philosophies and I would consider myself somewhat having a combination of progressivism, constructivism, and humanism philosophies in the classroom. From my own personal experience, I have found that the students have a large impact on how much teachers appreciate them and acknowledge the art of teaching. To this day, I still enjoy being in a classroom knowing that the instructor enjoys what they are doing and how they are doing it. My former kids from my past job at the day care loved when I was running the summer program because I stayed connected with them and interacted a lot with my class.
Both my SA and FA, have acknowledged that I am very aware of what is taking place in the classroom, and that I am quick to correct any situation that does not follow the classroom expectations. In addition, it was important to me that each student in my class had a voice. I am celebrating my ability to create a safe environment where a majority of students were eager to participate, and contribute to class activities. I helped students who are more shy to participate, by being supportive, checking over their answers, and encouraging them. One student who thrived in this safe community, wrote to me in a letter that he did not like to be called on because he had a stutter, which his peers made fun.
Second, they are normally satisfied with their behavior. For instance, Saveoun admires her friend, Chann Rith, because of Chann Rith’s attitude she show s in class. Characteristic help keeping friendship for many people, and offer many advantages. On the other hand, many students feel that it is a better way to associate with friends who are different to them. People’s knowledge is not equal, so it is shared to each other.
I hope they feel they can come to me when they need help with not just a school problem, but a problem in their personal life or when they just need some to listen. I hope I can model the same teacher characteristics to my students as I felt she showed me. She was caring, warm, and very interested in her students’ total well-being. Mrs. Schuette was the teacher who made me want to become a teacher. She showed me how much of a difference I could make in my students’ lives.
