Kindergarten Observation Start Time and End Time: 8:55am-10:30am Date of Observation: 11/17/11 The name of the school is New Field Elementary School. I observed a kindergarten classroom age ranges from 5-6 years of age. There were 26 children and 1 teacher present in the classroom. As I entered the classroom, it was empty and they all were lined up and coming back from the cafeteria with their breakfast bags in their hands. They all sat down on their chairs and were eating their breakfast. Once they get done with their breakfast, the teacher assigned a job to 1 child to take wipes to each and every child whoever wants to clean their hands. The children’s art work such as drawings with colors are hanging down on a string. It is the only thing that was displayed on one corner of the classroom made by children. I didn’t see any family photos or children’s photos on the wall or in any form in the classroom. There are 5 hexagon shaped tables and 6 chairs with their name on each side of the table. On one side of the wall there are alphabets with pictures of animals or things and below that letter; they have names of children stick on the wall starting with that each letters. There is a big easel board on the wall. They have a calendar, months, days, letters with pictures, and numbers by the easel board on the wall. The centers and materials are not labeled and organized in a proper form, only some of them have labels. In a library/reading area, there are lots of books in a shelf and a poster on a wall saying “Reading is an adventure and explore with reading.” They also have an oval shaped rug with letters, 2 couches and couple of pillows. There is a shelf divided into so many sections, holding baskets of children’s names and some papers. On top of the shelf, there are buckets for their

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
