I observed a 1st grade at the Alamosa Elementary School. The classsroom environment was the appropiate for this grade because they had a lot of pictures and illustrations that thy will use during the school year for example the multiplications, the seasons, the alphabet, the colors, and the different books that the teacher will read for them in a future. Also another thing that I though that was really good for the students each of them had their own desk and on top of it they have a little alphabet and the some color names, this will made a little bit easier for the students when they were writing of identifying a letter. Another good thing that I observed was that the teacher had a list of the different activities that they will have during the day, I though that this will be a good way to let the students that they will be doing that day. A very good idea that probably all the elementaries or only the first grades do is that the teacher has a special chair where they seat to read to the students , while the students are seatting on the floor listening the lecture. Another good thing that they had was that each student had their own box label with their name where they had their colors, scissors, pencils or any work that the teacher will have to check for that day. Some of the subjects that the teach taugh during my observation were the alphabet, the sounds of the letters, the difference between the vowels and consonants and the seasons, techer was doing a review for all those students who had a hard a time during kinder garden and answering all the questions that the students had or missunderstandings. One unusual circumstance that I observed was that one student after their break got lost, everybody got in a line to go back to the classroom and probably we wasn’t listening or he was somewhere else (bathroom, cafeteria, etc) , he was still in the play ground and another teacher had to take him to his corresponding classroom....
