1Classroom Observation Summary
Classroom Observation SummaryChristie GuiteEDU/305April 9, 2012Kristen Parker
Classroom Observation SummaryMy classroom observation took place at Belgrade Central Elementary School in smallrural community. I observed Jill Mack 
Kindergarten class. The class consisted 18 fiveand six years students. I joined there class for the afternoon. There were only two adultspresent, myself and Mrs. Mackenzie. During my observation I sat on the other side of theroom, so I would not distract the student or disrupt their lesson. I wanted to focus on Mrs.Mackenzi
e’s teaching style, her interaction with the student
s, class arrangement and thedevelopmental stages of each child.My first observation was that there were that the students just came in from lunchrecess. Mrs. Mackenzie met them with a smile at the door. They were excited and hot fromplaying outside. They quickly put their lunch boxes away, took their coats off and then linedup for bathroom and drinks; like it was all second nature to them. After returning frombathroom and drinks, the students quickly came to the mat for rest or read. Mrs. McKenzieput on classical music for the students for 10 minutes. Each student had a choice to rest orread quietly on the mat. This is a fantastic way to allow them to unwind from lunch andrecess. Since this an individual task the student they are encouraged to work quietly. Mrs.Mackenzie had to give a couple of reminders of their behavior and how to be safe while onthe mat. Overall, I was quite impressed at how quickly they all settled up.During my observation I enjoyed the flow of the classroom. It seemed very organized.There were four circle tables; each had a different colored bin which held their crayons,pencils and scissors. Each table had laminated name tags, that were decorated by the students.
At Mrs. Mack 
enzie’s table there were four c
olored bins, each bin had different student names.These bins were split up by reading groups and reading levels. Each student had their ownbag of books to read during reading groups. Mrs. Mackenzie would call up reading teams towork as a group. In the back of the room, a pretend microwave and kitchen set for
“housearea” and a sand box for the “science station.”
Mrs. McKenzie
’s classroom also had
arestroom that accommodates boys and girls, so the students do not have to leave theclassroom when needing to go to the restroom. On the walls and even on the ceiling wereseveral words, letters, and numbers. My favorite part of the room was a
 board of “ReallyRibbiting work!” This is the wall that the children are very proud of because it contains
all of their own work.Mrs. Mackenzie had a white rocking chair that was in front of the mat. She sat in thisduring read aloud or explaining a lesson to the students. During the observation I observedMrs. Mackenzie sitting in the chair teaching the students math and calendar. When thestudents transitioned to from the mat to their tables, they did so quietly and waited for theirnext direction. The children reviewed their math goals and the rubric and practiced theirgoals in pairs. While Mrs. Mackenzie reviewed goals, another teacher came into to get astudent for Title 1 reading.During math I noticed that each goal had there set of goals that they were working on.
Many of them were goals such as count to 100, count by 10’s or count by 5’s. Although
many met their goals at this point in time, others have not. They continue to work on theirgoals until they become successful. At all times the students seemed to be interested in thework and listened very well when Mrs. Mackenzie spoke. This indicates to me that thestudents are engaged in learning and truly enjoy having her as their teacher.
