Transcript of "SEPTA at Altamonte Elementary _ Teachers In Action"

  1. 1. SEPTA at Altamonte Elementary Gabriela Morris [email_address] April 8, 2010 EEX 4242
  2. 2. SEPTA- Special Education PTA Of Seminole County <ul><li>An organization of parents and teachers advocating exceptional children. </li></ul><ul><li>Recognizing the special needs of exceptional children, academically, behaviorally, emotionally and physically. </li></ul>
  3. 4. Setting <ul><li>Altamonte Elementary School </li></ul><ul><li>Using a Pre-Kindergarten classroom </li></ul><ul><li>None of the children actually went to the Altamonte Elementary School. </li></ul>
  4. 5. Demographics <ul><li>Within the Observation: </li></ul><ul><li>The children were all Caucasian </li></ul><ul><li>Mental Disabilities </li></ul><ul><li>Ages: 2-8 </li></ul>
  5. 6. The Children <ul><li>There were 15 students signed up, but on average about 10 showed up. </li></ul><ul><li>Their were mostly boys who enjoyed playing around the room and being creative with their games. </li></ul><ul><li>The girls were of the same age but never played together, Briana, 2, was very independent and Megan, 2, cried most of the time missing her parents. </li></ul>
  6. 7. What I Did? <ul><li>Planned an art activity where the children decorated picture frames. </li></ul><ul><li>The other girls and I planned a dance activity. </li></ul><ul><li>Did activates involving playdoh. </li></ul><ul><li>Played games of Simon says and human pin-ball. </li></ul>
  7. 8. My Own Experiences <ul><li>I had worked with children with disabilities before and felt comfortable playing and planning activities. </li></ul><ul><li>Though I was not sure what to expect at first, I learned a lot about patience and positive reinforcement. </li></ul><ul><li>I really enjoyed the children and the experience. </li></ul>
  8. 9. Reflection <ul><li>This experience has helped me understand the patience needed to care and teach children with disabilities. These children have so much energy and keeping up with them became difficult. </li></ul><ul><li>Jacob was a 7 year old boy who really challenged everyone, he had a big impact on me because it showed me how quickly a child can go from being calm to becoming a challenge. This is especially difficult when there were other children in the room. </li></ul><ul><li>This experience had made me see that every child is very different and need specific attention, but it is very difficult in a classroom environment with other children. </li></ul>
  9. 10. Reflection <ul><li>With this experience I will know as a future teacher that every child is very different and every disability is different depending on the child. </li></ul><ul><li>As a teacher an important factor, learned from this experience, would be research. Understanding the disability a child has will help in learning how to teach them. </li></ul><ul><li>An approach that I will use as a teacher will be to incorporate arts and physical education to many of my lessons. I noticed that the children got distracted of activities quickly and keeping them engaged in either an art project or a physical activity relevant to the lesson can help them avoid getting distracted. </li></ul>
