Topic 1 DQ 1Greetings class and Professor Wells,My school district is located in the state of Georgia.For this assignment, I chose to focus on Mathstandards for learners in Kindergarten.Math Standard:MGSEK.G.3.Identify shapes as two-dimensional (lying in a plane, “flat”) or threedimensional (“solid”).Learning objective:By the end of the school year, learners will label and sort 2-D and 3-D geometricfigures based on physical attributes.Thanks for reading,Vanquisha HarrisonReferenceWoods, G. (2016). Georgia standards of excellence.Georgia Department of Education.-Standards.pdfGreetings Christina and class,The grade level that you chose was the same grade level I chose. I like working with students atthis age. You did a good job in creating your learning objective for this grade level. Objectivesshould begin with an opening, include a verb, and reference what material should be taught(Brodeur, 2003).In the reading, I saw that the goal is to create an objective that is measurableand focused on student outcomes.An additional line to include would be when you intended forthe goal to be met.For instance, “By the end of the lesson” or “At the end of the school year” isa great way to start.Thanks for your time,Vanquisha Harrison
ReferenceBrodeur, D. (2003). Sample learning objectives:Observable and/or measurable.MassachusettsInstitute of Technology.Retrieved from%20Learning%20Objectives.pdfHello Roxanne and Class,I like that you made it clear that your standard would have to be taught in more than one lesson.Breaking a math concept down into simple form for learners is what differentiated learning isabout.Students learn progressively in stages until they fully develop an understanding of theobjective (Marzano, 2013). Some students may grasp the concept right away, while others mayneed more assistance.So, I feel you did a good job in creating multiple learning objectives foryour 1stgrade students.When I finish my degree, I would love to work with first grade studentsmyself.Thanks for your time,Vanquisha HarrisonReferenceMarzano, R.

Topic 1 DQ 2Greetings class and Professor Wells,Introducing learning objectives clarifies to scholars what academic goals they are expected tolearn in the classroom.The objectives can be a guide for student engagement and encouragesscholars to stay on task and remain focused.This sets the foundation for curriculum andsupports the development of lessons, assessments, and other instructional material (Schoenfeldt& Salsbury, 2009).
