children over and told them to all sits as “Indian style”. After every child was
seated with their hands in their lap, Mr. Amir began explaining what story He
would reading to the class the morning. As he read, he used group altering by
periodically asking the students questions pertaining to the characters or the
words in the story. Such as “which word rhyme in this sentence?” or “What is
the feeling word?” This made the engaged time with the students last longer
since they knew they would be asked to answer. After reading the lesson, he
would then tell the kids to disperse into their groups and tell them what corners
to go to. Mr. Aamir later explained that the kids were grouped based on their
scores from a test given at the beginning of the year. This way, he knew he
would have to work longer with a certain group or not as longer with another
based on how much they previously knew. The
kids then either went to the computer corner, the teacher’s aide, or to work
with Mr. Irfan. At each corner the children worked on word identification,
reading, phonics and spelling. The children who needed the help more worked

Below is a report wrote while observing a classroom at GPS Umar Abad


Mianwali
Abstract
The following report will examine all the elements of classroom that I will
observe in Mr. Irfan Class. I will discuss the classroom environment, the
school, the student’s participation, and the
teacher’s overall effectiveness. I will then talk about how much the
experience had an impact on my aspiration to teach.

Teacher Observation Report


Part I: Observation For my teacher observation, I chose to go and observe in
classroom at GPS Umar Abad Mianwali. The school as whole is rather large
and has around 200 students and over 10 teachers thus creating a stable
student-to-teacher ratio. All of my observations hours were spent observing
Mr. Irfan’s classroom. After walking into the classroom, you immediately feel
welcome. On the floor is a doormat full of color. The rug says welcome and
makes you feel just that. On the wall there are a number of pictures
encourages learning. There are pictures of color, shapes, letters, vegetables,
animals’ objects and numbers. There are pictures of animals at desks and
animals reading and writing. This is supposed to provide fun twist on learning
for students. I also noticed there was a schedule on board showing allocated
time for each subject and calendar with current and previous date flipped
over. Also on the board is a “Discipline tracker” as He calls it. It consisted of 3
Plates: one red, one yellow, and one green. This will be explained later. The
classroom was also divided into 3 spaces: the
teacher’s desk, the student’s desk and the reading corner. Overall, the
classroom environment was very homey. He stated the class every morning
with him reading lesson. Mr. Aamir walked over to his chair, sat
down and called the children over and told them to all sits as “Indian style”.
After every child was seated with their hands in their lap, Mr. Aamir began
explaining what story He would reading to the class the morning. As He read,
He used group altering by periodically asking the students questions
pertaining to the characters or the words in the story. Such as which word
rhyme in this sentence? or what is the feeling word. This made the engaged
time with the students last longer since they knew they would be asked to
answer. After reading the lesson, He would then tell the kids to disperse into
their groups and tell them what corners to go to. Mr. Aamir later explained
that the kids were grouped based on their scores from a test given at the
beginning of the year. This way, He knew He would have to work longer with a
certain group or not as longer with another based on how much they
previously knew. The
kids then either went to the computer corner, the teacher’s aide, or to work
with Mr. Irfan. At each corner the children worked on word identification,
reading, phonics and spelling. The children who needed the help more worked
While Mr. Irfan was teaching the individuals groups, I noticed how often He
would have to talk time away from his teaching to discipline the other kids. It
seemed almost ridiculous how often He would have to stop to make sure
nobody was talking, being disruptive, or not doing their work. I felt upset for
those kids who wanted to learn but could not because Mr. Aamir was playing
policeman. This showed me how much time really goes into non-instructional
activities. If any of the disruption ever got out of control beyond a warning,
then He would use the discipline tracker. He would move a cloth spin with the
student name from green to yellow. This meant that student did not get a
sticker at the end of the day although it seems petty to an adult that sticker
meant the world to child and the student’s behavior automatically improved. I
had to pray my mentor on this eye thought it was annotative way of teaching
the students good behavior through a reward system. The school
environment was very clean and well maintained. The bathrooms were also
spotless. The staff and students alike seem to really enjoy the school and the
environment around them. There is no better place to learn than some where
you are comfortable.
Part II: Reflection I believe that overall, this was a great experience. I honestly
could not have been happier with how well my observations of Mr. amir
classroom went. I would strongly recommend his to interested student
looking for somewhere to learn the ways of teaching. Not only He was strong
academically, but also you could tell He had an interest passion for making
sure each and every one of his students learned at least something in class
every day. Not only was He strong, but patient as well. Having fifteen kids
running around a room cannot be easy for anyone. Yet He handled it with
grace and poise. I picked up so many teaching methods while observing Mr.
Aamir. I loved how He had little note
cards with each student’s name and would flip from card to card after each
question, giving every student a chance to participate and ensuring
participation. He also had a different student every morning to lead the
morning exercise. He later explained that this was to wake the students up
and get their blood going in participation f learning. I thought this was a
unique and cleaver way to keep the students active and ready for enthusiasm
to teach. I loved the environment of school. As I walked down, whether
coming or leaving, a number of staff always smiled or said good morning, and
meant it. The students had smiles on their faces and it was clear that they
coming to school every morning. The experience has truly opened my eyes
and made me realize that teaching really is what I would like to do for the rest
of my life. To see children, finally have something click in their heads or smile,
when you tell them they answered the question correctly makes all the hard
times
worth it. Although I’m sure, it will be a lot of work, I have no doubt in my mind
that molding young minds is the right path for me.

doormat full of color. The rug says welcome and makes you feel just that. On
the wall there are a number of pictures encourages learning. There are
pictures of color, shapes, letters, vegetables, animals’ objects and numbers.
There are pictures of animals at desks and animals reading and writing. This is
supposed to provide fun twist on learning for students. I also noticed there
was a schedule on board showing allocated time for each subject and
calendar with current and previous date flipped over. Also on
the board is a “Discipline tracker” as He calls it. It consisted of 3 Plates: one
red, one yellow, and one green. This will be explained later. The classroom
was also divided into 3 spaces: the
teacher’s desk, the student’s desk and the reading corner. Overall, the
classroom environment was very homey. He stated the class every morning
with him reading lesson. Mr. Aamir walked over to his chair, sat down and
called the children over and told them to all sits as “Indian style”. After every
child was seated with their hands in their lap, Mr. Aamir began explaining
what would He is going to taught the class. As He read, He used group altering
by periodically asking the students questions pertaining to the characters or
the words in the story. He then draws the picture of clocks to tell the
students. This made the engaged time with the students last longer since they
knew they would be asked to answer. After reading the lesson, He would then
tell the students to disperse into their groups and tell them to draw a clock
without writing the time then He randomly give these chits to the students
and ask the students to write the time. The school environment was very
clean and well maintained. The bathrooms were also spotless. The staff and
students alike seem to really enjoy the school and the environment around
them. There is no better place to learn than some where you are comfortable.

Part II: Reflection

I believe that overall, this was a great experience. I honestly could not have
been happier with how well my observations of Mr. Irfan’s classroom went. I
would strongly recommend his to interested student looking for somewhere
to learn the ways of teaching. Not only He was strong academically, but also
you could tell He had an interest passion for making sure each and every one
of his students learned at least something in class every day. Not only was He
strong, but patient as well. Having fifteen kids running around a room cannot
be easy for anyone. Yet He handled it with grace and poise. I picked up so
many teaching methods while observing Mr Aamir. I loved how He had little
note cards with each student’s name and would flip from card to card after
each question, giving every student a chance to participate and ensuring
participation. He also had a different student every morning to lead the
morning exercise. He later explained that this was to wake the students up
and get their blood going in participation f learning. I thought this was a
unique and cleaver way to keep the students active and ready for enthusiasm
to teach. I loved the environment of school. As I walked down, whether
coming or leaving, a number of staff always smiled or said good morning, and
meant it. The students had smiles on their faces and it was clear that they
coming to school every morning. The experience has truly opened my eyes
and made me realize that teaching really is what I would like to do for the rest
of my life. To see children, finally have something click in their heads or smile,
when you tell them they answered the question correctly makes all the hard
times
worth it. Although I’m sure, it will be a lot of work, I have no doubt in my mind
that molding young minds is the right path for me.
