Reflection: (What have you learned about your students? How will this inform future instruction?)
What have you learned about your students?
Throughout this process, I have noticed that students learn a lot through imitation and copying. After the teacher demonstrates a certain skill,
the students are eager to replicate it. In general, children often imitate those within their immediate environment: I have observed that the students
interact a lot with their classmates during this activity. Every student was eager to plant using the provided materials; no student encountered any

difficulty during this activity. However, I have noticed that some students are not willing to share or wait for their turn to spray the soil. This indicates
that team work is not always present in the students’ spirit.

How will this inform future instruction?
This activity allowed me to find out about a few areas that could be improved. For instance, exposing the students to more team activities will allow
them to work better together. Also, in order to develop their motor skills, I will need to expose them to more activities that require hand usage. For
example, I could ask them to draw their own plant and cut it by using scissors prior to the actual planting exercise. This way, they can practice how to
use their hands and fingers and improve their motor skills while doing so.
To encourage creativity, I can have indoor activities that will give each student the opportunity to display individual skills. I could provide each
student with a small pot that would be used for planting. This way, the students are free to use their imagination and come up with creative ideas to
perform the activity.
