Learning centers assist in helping meet the needs of all students. Children learn by doing. Learning centers allow the teacher to individualize learning for specific students or groups as well as alter the focus based on the needs of students.
With your mentor teacher’s permission, implement at least one of the learning centers you created in Topic 3 with the class or a small group. Record the students’ assessment results.
After your implementation, make arrangements with your mentor teacher to administer a full lesson with a small group of students in the Topic 6 clinical field experience.
Discuss the assessment results from the math center implementation with your mentor to determine what standards should be included in the lesson in Topic 6.
In a 500-750 word summary, reflect on the implementation of at least one of the learning centers and address the following:
- Explain the implementation of the instructional strategies and how they reinforced math concepts to young children.
- Analyze students’ assessment outcomes and describe thepatterns and gaps in learning.
- Explain how the assessment data would guide future planning and instruction to meet the needs of individual students and promote student growth.
- Discuss how you can implement what you have learned in your future teaching practice.
