Each student has his or her own cubby where they hang their coats, and it has a place at the bottom of it for them to place their lunch, if they brought one, and any library books they might have. As the students entered the room in the morning they each went to the white board where there was a chart with their name on it and a box for whether they brought their lunch or was getting lunch from the school and they had to put their marker in the proper box.
They then would go to their cubby, remove their coats and hang them up, place their book bags or lunch boxes in the proper place. Then they started to play with some building blocks that are in the class room. There were several students who exhibited Parallel play, which is they were playing next to each other, but were not playing with each other. There were two students who exhibited Solitary play, which is they were playing alone and did not appear to be aware of the other students that were playing nearby.
There were also students that exhibited Cooperative play which is they were playing together and taking turns. After the bell rang all of the students immediately started putting up the toys they were playing with, and took their seats. Mrs. Becker started the class off by making sure all of the students had taken care of their lunch status. After this the pledge of allegiance was said over the intercom. As soon as it was announced that it was going to be said, all of the students stood from their desks, turned to face the flag, and put their right hands over their hearts.
The students seem to very eager to do this, they seem to enjoy it. .The rest of the curriculum included teaching of numbers, shapes, colors, and letters . Mrs. Becker had the students do some simple math problems, using shapes, colors and letters. She would have them add all the green letters with all the red letters, as well as adding colored shapes. There were ten boys and seven girls that made up the seventeen students. All the students appeared to be of the same height.
In saying that there were slight differences in height, but not any one student was considerably taller than the others. There were three students who appear to weigh more than the others. By using the definition of overweight (having a BMI above the eighty-fifth percentile for age), I would not classify these students as overweight. There are no students that appear to be malnourished. There are no students that are wearing glasses. There do not appear to be any students who require any extra academic attention.
