The Teacher Kaitlyn Zimmerman About me... I have wanted to be from the age of 4 until the age of 14 when art started to play a bigger role in my life. Throughout high school I wanted to be an architect, a part time Radio City Rockette, and finally a graphic designer, which is what I put on my college applications. Why a teacher then? During the spring of my senior year I was the captain of my track team, but over the winter I had fractured my sternum. Because I was unable to participate, and because of budget cuts, the autistic boy on our team, Eric, was not able to do much at practices. I volunteered to work with him and be that coach and it eventually led to an unforgettable relationship. Eric's impact... Working with Eric gave me a whole new perspective on my life. He made me appreciate the small conversations and the little bit of time that we did spend with each other. He also made me realize how much I love to help others and that working and teaching others is how I want to spend the rest of my life. About Me... Education: Experience: Accomplishments: My Resume Who am I... I am currently studying Elementry Education at Endicott College in Beverly MA. I am scheduled to graduate in May 2015. Obtain a full-time Public School Teaching job in Kindergarten to Third Grade. Objective: Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies, Teacher Licensure Program expected May 2015

a look into "my" classroom Inside the Classroom... Instructional Goals/Behavioral Objectives/Learning outcomes for students: Students will be able to comprehend word problems and be able to solve them with actual coins. Students will read and solve money based word problems, and then understand that the sum can be represented various ways with various coins. Procedures: Prepare cups with different amounts of pennies, nickels, and dimes prior to class
Have children each get a cup of coins while you set up the smart board and pass out iclickers
Teach the lesson, ask for volunteers
Hand out plain piece of paper for assessment Assessment: During the PowerPoint the students will use iclickers when they are done solving it so I can determine how long it is taking students to complete the math work. After, with a partner, provide each other with a number that they each need to draw pictures of the coins that can be used to represent that number. If Kate buys the fruit, how much money will she have left?
How can you show this amount? If Kate has 7 pennies, 2 nickels, and 1 dime how much money does she have?
Will she have enough to buy her fruit? Tom has a jar of coins that he has been saving all week. He has 32 cents. How can we show 32 cents? Math Story #2 If Jenny has 24 cents and buys the candy bar for 8 cents how much money does she have left? Jenny found a candy bar that was 8 cents. Does she have enough money to buy that candy bar? One day Jenny went to the store to buy a candy bar. Her mom gave her 4 pennies, 2 nickels, and 1 dime. How much money did she have? Math Story #1 How much is a dime worth?

How much is a nickel worth?

How much is five pennies worth? Students will Understand that words can be broken into syllables. Students will be able to decode two syllable words using an online game. Instructional Goals/Behavioral Objectives/Learning outcomes for students: Procedures: Explain what a syllable is.
Have the class break their names into syllables by clapping out the sounds
Break the class into two groups. Have the children take turns alternating from each team solve the problem on the board, dragging the bar to split the word. They can have their teammates help them. Assessment: After the game is over, I will have the children complete a worksheet in which they have words that are printed in bubble font. They will color in each syllable a different color. The students will use the information they learn about communities and apply it to our classroom
They will understand the importance of following rules and working together to resolve conflicts

Los estudiantes usarán la información aprenden sobre las comunidades y aplicarlo a nuestro salón de clases

Students will naturally have smaller and neater handwriting, and as a class the instruction of cursive writing will be taught and encouraged

Como los alumnos tienen más práctica escribir oraciones más largas y más estructurados, escritura a mano será también un enfoque en la clase. Los estudiantes tendrán naturalmente escritura más pequeño y más ordenado, y como una clase se enseñó y animó a la instrucción de escritura cursiva pero entiendo lo que estoy leyendo? me suena tan fluido!

Sumar y restar números de 2 dígitos
Entender el significado de la multiplicación y división As the students become more fluent readers, they learn that stories they tell can be put to words for others to read. They will learn that they can tell their own stories as well as fantasy and make believe stories for pleasure reading Cuando los alumnos comienzan a escribir historias, se les dará plantillas como la uno a la derecha para ayudarles a estructurar oraciones con el uso de nuevas palabras. Los niños a menudo comienzan a mayoría de las sentencias el mismo o no tienen una línea argumental. Plantillas de ofrecen la libertad para ser creativos pero también enseñarles la estructura de una historia. As the students begin to write stories, they will be given templates like the one to the right to help them structure sentences with the use of new words. Children often begin most sentences the same or don’t have a story line. Templates offer them the freedom to be creative but also teach them the structure of a story. STOP!
