The pupils pay their attention to the learning materials because using of these instructional materials is the only way of getting the exact answers. the teacher should make colorful charts and provide good reinforcements. did the teacher experience? How can this be managed? I think getting the attention of the pupils was the main problem of my cooperating teacher. To get the positive response from the pupils. Another reason is the teacher has already the stock of instructional materials in her bank so she can easily get these in its bank by the times that she needs to use these. the teacher still got the positive response from the class by letting her pupils do some activities that only the chart can provide the correct answers.
