The teacher greeted the students as they entered into the classroom. She set the tone for a learning environment by having work on their desk for them to do.  Her acknowledgment of those beginning to work quietly encouraged others to do the same.  During the circle time she motivates the students with a song for them to join in greet each other.  I like that she clearly articulates the lesson for the day by reading and modeling along with say and response of the rules.  This approach helps the students understand what is expected.  Consistently she shows concern as she monitors their progress with challenging questions, praises and correcting behavior to maintain lesson focus.

Good video!! Awesome way to teach writing.  I was reallyimpressed with how orderly and organized the classroom functioned.  It was really quiet.  The way that the teacher moved from table to table to sit for a few minutes with each student is a great way to imformally assess as well as encourage students in the process.  The students got immediate feedback in a positive way that built confidence and pride; it allowed the students to continue the process empowered instead of defeated. The teacher always let the student with ideas or instructions that she had them to repeat, this is a quick way to check for understanding. Great video!!

I really enjoyed watching this lesson. The teacher runs a very positive and energetic lesson. I like how she greets every student at the door and the students know there’s a warm up activity for them to do while she’s away from her desk. One of the things that really caught my attention was the way she was referring to the tables where the students are seating. Using academic vocabulary such as the respiratory system and circulatory system when talking about the tables/groups around the classroom is an excellent idea. The more academic vocabulary we use in the classroom, the better for our students. The lesson about the writing workshop was excellent. She when over the lesson from the previous day and to get started she shared her own experience and became a “first grade writer”. Her story about he boy riding his bike at the park was appropriate for that age group because the students were able to immediately make a connection. The teacher does an excellent job walking around the room and providing positive feedback, or giving compliments, motivating the students to keep working hard. The anchor charts are an excellent tool and using them to support her lesson facilitates the learning in the classroom. At the end of her lesson, gathering everyone back to share and check for understanding it is a great strategy to make sure the class met the learning objective for the day. Great lesson!

The class is full of positive energy! The teacher has created a very good learning environment where all the students are engaged and eager to learn, build a positive attitude toward learning, and learn effectively. This is extremely important for the students at an early stage.

The teacher uses a great strategy to get all students' engagement in her lesson. By asking and giving some guidance to help students work better, she also makes them feel happy and proud of themselves on what they did to achieve their goal as well as how they set their goals. The motivation she gives the students is an effective way of teaching. 

In terms of teaching writing to first graders, it is crucial to help them understand the process of creating their piece of writing and how to make it more interesting. The teacher models it in a nice and interesting way, which encourages students a lot in their learning. More importantly, by asking guiding questions, the teacher enhances students' critical thinking. I like the idea of students sharing their goals with peers, which builds their collaboration and communication skills.

In teaching methods, I think this video had a prime method I plan to use when teaching. I really like the idea of talking to the students about what they did to achieve their goal and ultimately what their goal is. This allows students at an early stage to understand the process of creating a final product and the work that goes into it. The idea of allowing students to get in partners and share their ideas was great in growing communication skills as well as being proud of what they accomplished and how they learned from the process. Learning to set goals and complete goals at an early age is important for future learning and growth.
