Observation notes: There are areas in the classroom for specific purposes such as storage of teaching aids and books which is located in the left side of the classroom. The rules are not posted and only the teacher is imposing it verbally and the learners follow it accordingly. The rules are the sole responsibilities of the students as they are expected to follow these regulations in order for them to learn respect and obedience. Daily routines include a prayer before and after class, exercises to warm them up and start their day with energy, recess, activity time, play, and reading stories. The learners follow the routine and it seems that they like doing it every day. The characteristics of the learners in my observed class are that they were very active in play activities. The teacher always reminds them to follow the rules before they play, it serves as a guideline and a good disciplinary routine without threatening or making the child feel scared as they behave so that they can play already. The teacher criticizes the bad behavior and not the child; she would talk with the child nicely and tell her if he/she have done something wrong. It makes the child feel that doing bad things is not a good behavior and it is to be avoided. To reinforce positive behaviors, the teacher uses praise to encourage the pleasant behavior that a child shows. She also gives awards in the form of stars. If a student is obedient and participates in every activity, the learner’s receives a star mark in his/her hand. The seating arrangement grouped in the learner’s learning level and behaviors, the teacher explained that she grouped it this way to avoid quarrels and distractions by a talkative student to a student who makes activities. This way all children who always participates in activities can do their work without or minimal interferences and the students who spend most of their time talking, plying while doing activities and even having snacks can’t bother the others because they are grouped systematically. Well organized classrooms offers the learners better learning acquisition and faster progress for mental growth and development. Good classroom management enables favorable working conditions in learning and makes school an effective and enjoyable place to be with.

    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.
