Question and answer
what are the similarities of pre-school,elementary and high school learners?
Walk into a preschool classroom, and you probably see a lot of movement. The walls are adorned with letters and numbers, children race from one learning center to another and the chairs are tiny. [ Elementary school classrooms, in contrast, seem larger and more subdued. Surprisingly, however, there are many similarities between the preschool classroom and its elementary school counterpart. First
and foremost are the methods that the teacher uses to teach. Active Learning Students at the preschool and elementary level require active learning to fully gain the knowledge that is required. For example, a young child learning about objects that sink and float will learn much more from testing some objects out in a bucket than from memorizing the explanation for why less dense objects float. The teacher should engage students in activities that help them figure out the information on their own (active learn) rather than forcing them to passively accept what you say. Differentiation Especially in a heterogeneous classroom that practices inclusion, the students in preschool and elementary school classes may be at extremely different levels. Therefore, the teacher probably needs to provide them with some sort of differentiation, in which she creates separate materials. Some of these materials will challenge the stronger students in the class, and others will support the weaker students to gain necessary skills. This technique may require the use of leveled readers or worksheets, as well as different groupings. Teaching to Various Learning Styles There are three main learning styles: visual, auditory and kinesthetic. Each of these learning styles must be approached differently both at the preschool and elementary school levels. Visual learners tend to learn best by viewing demonstrations, creating charts and reading silently. Auditory learners tend to learn best by listening to a teacher's explanation, joining class discussions and reading aloud. Kinesthetic learners tend to learn best by actively doing things to take part in the lesson. ]
