I am a Junior at Saint Peter's University, aspiring to become a third grade teacher after I graduate in May 2022. I don't want the job just because I love kids but because I also want to make a change in their lives. I hope to be an effective teacher, one who the children will remember in their future lives. Hands-on activities, one on one discussions, group work, etc. are some strategies I definitely have in mind to better educate my future students. I've witnessed that many students don't get that in a classroom; they get left with boring worksheets and take tests that barely teach them anything. A child's classroom should be something they look forward to learning in; a class where they don't have a problem making friends of any color/race/religion/culture/nationality; a class in which they don't struggle to meet a standard, etc.
Sometimes we're too caught up in our own lives to think about just how cool Earth really is. We're standing, living, and breathing on it yet we don't know much about it. This collection is set up to remind you to "think globally"
** Directed towards the Elementary grade level but really anyone can learn something from any level, wouldn't you agree?

Sat, Dec 11, 2021 6:17 PM in Different Ways To Teach Science In The Classroom
Just like you, I am pursuing a degree in Elementary Education. I wish to teach 3rd or 4th graders!
I am still learning and don't have much insight but I would like to briefly share my experiences with science. When I was younger, I used to love science. The teachers gave us fun experiments and there were fun topics. We even went on field trips. But then, I grew up....

Sat, Dec 11, 2021 5:38 PM in Science Fun for Students
Just like almost everyone else said, I believe hands-on experiments are the best way to keep the students engaged. There is no doubt that it is also much more fun than reading facts from a textbook. Especially when it comes to science, students need to see the different phenomenons in front of them and test them out to really understand them. When we start off a lesson with an ex...

I agree with you, it does sound like a great way for students to get engaged in the classroom. Your topic caught my attention. This is definitely something I'd consider as a future teacher. On both Disney+ and Netflix, there are wildlife shows and documentaries that would be perfect to show the children. When you're unable to physically be at a certain place, videos ...

Fri, Feb 12, 2021 2:29 AM Inquirize Your Teaching
This article was very helpful and informational. It started off by giving us a class scenario. Both activities were hands-on. In the first activity, the students are only carrying out the experiment. It is in the second activity that they are asking questions, observing, and "inquiring". This reminded me of science labs, in general. We can't really complete an experiment without inquiring first. It's necessary. I like the 5E learning cycle that was mentioned in the article. It's a very useful method especially for children; explore, engage, explain, extend and apply, and evaluate. This process gives us a clear pathway not only in science but for life in general. It's a great way to gain knowledge.
