As the paper discusses Mickey finds himself fallen in a night kitchen where three fat bakers are baking a cake for the morning. Mickey falls into the jug of milk and is accidentally kneaded into the cake dough after which the bakers put him into the oven. Somehow, Mickey manages to come out of the dough and feels sorry that he has spoiled the cake. He, then, makes an airplane of the dough and flies outside the oven into a bottle of milk where he pours the milk into the dough when its covering crumbles up. The bakers are happy that the cake came out perfect. Mickey, then magically returns to his bedroom into his bed, and pleasurably thinks about the delightful experiences that he had in the night kitchen. The aim behind summarizing the story is to explain how the content is well suited to be studied by a primary grader. Every one of us has his own unique good or bad style of learning new things. Teachers need to understand different learning styles in order to improve learning, especially student learning, because learning styles have a practical application in education and training. The organization of this book is perfect who is a visual learner, that is, a student whose learning preferences include visual aids with which he can make an imagination of the story plot within his mind.
This study outlines that the pictures and comics that the author has made use of are interesting pieces of visual aids that can help a student with visual learning style. Thus, the language used is figurative. “The succession of images occur in such a way, that when we are given the full view of the scene, it seems as if Mickey has literally broken the forth wall of the comics panel and come zooming out into the open”. The cartoon-like artwork of Sandek has, on one hand, made the story bolder and, on the other, maintained the students’ grasp upon the plot of the story as well by keeping the shades and coloring of the images less intense. The emphases has been more on the story than the images which strengthens the students’ comprehension because they look at images as a helping part of the story rather than looking at story as a part of the comic images. The lettering and wording that Sandek has used make it special for children because the words used are simple that are easy for the students to encode and decode, thus enabling the students learn decoding the word and encoding it comfortably. Also, the rhythm of the words selected is like a song which that student will enjoy who has auditory type learning style. Such a student learns by listening to the utterance of the sound of the word, and comprehends it. Hence, the book is great not only for visual but also for auditory learning style preferences. Moreover, this book can also prove a great guide for a student who lacks writing skills since the teacher can tell him to look at the picture and write down how the image relates to the story, or can tell him to read the story and write it down in simple words.
This research discussion, A Book for Primary Grade Students, stresses that the book under discussion here is Maurice Sendak’s In the Night Kitchen which was published in 1970. It is more of a picture book which has received Caldecott Honor Award in 1971. …
te Department Chair DIFFERENCES BETWEEN CONCRETE AND VIRTUAL MANIPULATIVES IN PREPARING 10TH GRADE MATH STUDENTS FOR STANDARDIZED TESTS. A Master’s Thesis Submitted In Partial Fulfillment of the Requirements For the Degree of Master of Science by JOHN G.
To this end, students in 10th grade were given various mathematical problems to solve. The results that came from the data collection have been presented and discussed below. It is worth emphasizing that because the current research was conducted using the mixed research approach the data have been grouped into qualitative and quantitative data.
My ESL students of grade 7 has little motivation and participation in English language activities. Students’ motivation to learn language has always been a concern for researchers and educators. There have been several theories on what helps students achieve in ESL class.
While it answers the concern of lowering repeaters (and drop-outs) in the subject, there lies the possibility of lowering student achievement in the subject, especially in the subject that is critically essential for the succeeding school levels.This is a crucial point of study as a strong Reading comprehension is necessary for student's achievement in the succeeding levels.
One method for the teaching of art to this age group is to introduce them to the elements of art: this will involve having the students experiment with different types of materials such as paint, clay, and perhaps other substances such as mud or dirt that are not normally associated with the creation of art.
There was widespread recognition of the need to address what came to be known as the 'crisis of historical education.' Originally recognized as a problem by and for historians themselves in the 1970s, in the 1980s there was increasing public acknowledgment of, and a sense that something had to be done about, the fragmentation and marginalization of historical studies in schools and the accumulating evidence from tests and surveys that the nation's young people were growing ever more ignorant of American and world history.
Sometimes, either due to small numbers of samples or improper methods, the results may be unclear or inaccurate and may warrant further sampling or other corrective methods in order to arrive at more precise conclusions. In such cases, a secondary analysis of the initial research is done to identify the weaker aspects of the initial research, giving pointers to future line of action.
The methods used for teaching appreciation of art to third grade students should inspire them to explore the world of art, appreciate its aesthetic pleasures and also relate art to other academic disciplines.
Aesthetic pleasure can be enjoyed by children.
The author states that once in college, a student is on his own, leading his own life and seldom listens to what the parents say, especially if he lives away from home. Such freedom tends to override the child’s life, leading him into spending his time in the most non productive and enjoyable manner possible.
