Organization and Management of Students
- pass out random photos of colors on paper to all of the students, have the students who recieve the same color group together. (teachertools.org) ( birdvilleisd.org)
This will help the students organize in a way that does not make others feel left out.
-allow the new students to find others who share intrests with them. This will make the entire classroom more comfortable for the students and teacher.
-show the students that technology can be used for learning and not just for games
this will build a early positive relationship with the parents and the teacher.
-the students will feel safe and secure in the lunch room without fear
-will force the children to rotate between centers, even to the ones that they do not like to visit.
-get the students to move from one activity to another without a lot of distraction
- This group leader can function as a "mini teacher" and help to start to teach the students to work without the teacher.
-this will give each of the students a area that is their own and one that they can take pride in
