An Introduction to Waves To introduce your students to the concept of waves, conduct the following activities in your class. Drop a pebble into a tank of still water or any large and fairly deep vessel. The surface of the water gets disturbed and it travels outward from the point of disturbance. This is a wave.
Scaffolding is a method that involves changing the levels of support for learning.
When the task at hand is new the adult or more skilled peer may use direct instruction with the student. As the student learns to master the task less guidance is then needed.
I have noticed many opportunities to use scaffolding in the classroom when teaching reading and literacy development in the classroom. Implementing Scaffolding Some strategies for teaching reading are: The teacher takes what the student knows already then helps the student incorporate this material into the new material being learned.
The teacher asks what the word C-A-T spells. We have the C and T sounds down; now let us work on the A! With the help of a triadic scaffolding process, educators can use three concepts to help the student master his or her goal. These three concepts are teacher verbal strategy, contribution of the computer, and what the strategy accomplishes.
Scaffolding allows students not only to stay involved within the classroom, but also allows the students to keep up with their peers. If peer scaffolding is involved it also offers a new level of communication between students.The first study compared the samples of unassisted writing, teacher-scaffolded writing and self-scaffolded writing (Bodrova & Leong, ).
In this study, the sample consisted of34 kindergarten children who used Scaffolded Writing for eight months.
In teaching, the idea behind scaffolding is that the teacher provides activities just slightly above a student's ability.
The activities include skills the student has already mastered as . leona This is a super fun activity to practice solving multi-step equations! Students generate pieces to a story through their solutions to the cards at each station.
Students generate pieces to a story through their solutions to the cards at each station. writing classes and 32 from the non- scaffolded writing classes). The students’ vocabulary scores were further classified into three levels: the vocabulary size above .
This paper examines activity settings and daily classroom routines experienced by 3- and 4-year-old low-income children in public center-based preschool programs, private center-based programs, and family child care homes. With a simple search and browsing functionality teachers can easily find the perfect activity for small or large group instruction!
When planning, teachers can search activities by keyword and filter by skill level, standards, assessment objectives, outcomes, group size and themes.
