MY ANALYSIS UTILIZATION OF TEACHING AIDS FORMGrade or Year of Class Observed: Grade V- ADate of Observation: February 15-17, 2013Subject Matter: “Water Cycle” Science and Health VBrief Description of Teaching Approach Used by the Teacher:Mrs. Dizon taught the lesson in a constructivist way because she lets the students to activelyinvolve into the discussion. She used both traditional and electronic instructional materials throughbelieving that it is the best medium in acquiring learning. She utilized learning by doing anddynamic presentation of lesson. Though the preparation of the materials is just a day before thepresentation of lesson, the outcome of the strategies used is still excellent and awesome. Comments onTeaching Aids used Strengths Weaknesses Appropriateness of the Teaching Aids used Chalk and board easy to access and not much arouse the It still important aid already provided at interest of the students because there are the classroom maybe because that’s part of the discussion the usual materials that students need to used write their own ideas at board and that is the most inexpensive materials that can be used in teaching.

My Analysis1. What do you think prompted the teacher to choose the materials/learning resources that he/she used? I think the teacher encouraged to use both traditional and modern technology instructional materials was that she generalized its nature and importance of both materials. Traditional instructional materials, which are the chalk-and-board method and the visual aid, were used to give the information needed by the students. It still plays an important role in teaching and learning process because it is the common and most available materials that can be found in every classroom. On the other hand, she utilized modern technology instructional materials because she expected that it sustain the children’s interest and motivates them to learn. Aside from that, integrating technology in the discussion made the class interactive, lively and enthusiasm.2. What difficulties, if any, did the teacher experience? How can this be managed? She experienced hardship in operating the dvd player to play video clips about water cycle which was her motivation. And to accomplish everything, she searched for help from her intern-student. Overall, everything was fixed and the outcome of the presentation was a job-well done. During presentation of values integration of the lesson, she provided jumbled word which will come up with the values, “We are thirsty, I give you water because you care and love me”. And she found difficulty in providing complete words and to sustain what is missing, she wrote it down immediately on a piece of paper then instructed students to complete the values being assimilated.3. Over – all, were the learning resources/materials used effectively? Why? Why not? As the discussion was done, I concluded and generalized that both learning instructional materials, the traditional and modern one, were used effectively because it both sustained and supplied the necessary information and experiences needed by the students to understand how the cycle goes. In addition to that, the discussion let the students learn-by-seeing and be an active learners rather than being passive. In the assessment of their learning, it is proven that their proficiency in that lesson was very high.
My Reflection1. Put yourself in the place of the teacher. What would you do similarly and what would you do differently if you teach the same lesson to the same group of students? Why? How Mrs. Dizon presented the lesson was already been excellent for me. In my future teaching, I will also integrate technology in my discussion. With the same topic to be teach, I will do similar to her way of presenting a movie clips to motivate the students interest in the new topic. Furthermore, it will give students an idea on the new topic presented by the teacher. There will be similarity on us in providing lots and varied of group activities which still considered the students; differences and multiple intelligences. Like her, values integration will also be highlighted in my future teaching in such a way that students will not just understand the topic but will also appreciate the essence and importance of the topic in their lives. During the assessment, the proficiency level of the students was hundred percent. Maybe, there will be minimal difference in my examination for evaluation. Instead of focusing on their knowledge skills, it will be better to, if possible to used the comprehension and analysis in the given examination. This may probably determine their deeper understanding about the topic itself. In general, the instructional materials, the group activities provided and her way of delivering the lesson really engaged students to actively participate in the discussion.

Most probably, she used the common and most accessible materials which are the chalk and board. Important information was being broadened using this material.
