TAFE/Ed Rising TRAFLES
TRAFLES Stands For:
Appreciation of Teaching
For the letter T in TRAFLES, I intern at Holiday Heights Elementary school with Mrs. Le in first grade.The letter "R" in TRAFLES is for recreation and on Thursday, December 17, 2015 we will be having our Christmas party to end our year. For the letter "A" it is appreciation of teachers and recently we just made teacher appreciation blocks for Christmas. During thanksgiving we had turkey cake balls and handed them out to all the BCTAL teachers. For Fundraising, we sold cookie dough and raised money for our TAFE funds. For Leadership I am the afternoon class President for TAFE. Also I participated in state competitions for our chapter scrapbook. The Education awareness TRAFLES we had the pleasure to listen to Mrs. Pursley teach us how to read books to a class. She taught us how to get our students involved with the book. We also had the chance to listen to recruiters from University of North Texas, Texas State University, Texas Wesleyan University, the University of Stephan F. Austin, Tarleton State University, University of Arlington, and Texas Christian University. For Service Projects I have volunteered at Holiday Heights Elementary Science Night and also their school Carnival. I also plan to help out with Pancakes with Santa on Saturday, December 12, 2015.
I plan to continue helping out with TAFE events and also at my site school.
Subtracting/ Adding BINGO
I made this for my class to practice subtracting and adding because I noticed my students struggled with this. I give them number sentences and whatever number they get they look for that number on the BINGO board. They mark the BINGO board with peppermint Hershey kisses and the winner will receive candycanes!
In my class, we split the students into groups and they do different activities. The chart behind me is the students name and what they should be doing. As they are doing their centers I walk around and him them with different words or math problems.
Site words practice
Carly, Jezhian, Aiden, Daniel were all out in the hall with me working on their site words. I would say the site word, then they would spell it with the magnet letters, then they would say the word and then mix the letter up and last they would respell it.
Subtracting/ Adding BINGO
This is my dream school because I love that its three and a half hours away from home and it is something new. I also love that this school has a good education program and tons of clubs you can join!
