I am currently in the last semester before my student teaching in Early Childhood Education. I have done various practicums and would love any chance to help a child with their school work. I have worked most recently with 5-6 year olds and would love to broaden my range more. I am interested with helping up to 3rd grade students. I prefer to use a hands-on method to help students learn. My opinion is that the more students can touch, feel, and do, they better they will learn whatever concept is required of them. Manipulatives are also important as they give the students something solid to associate with whatever problem (math related) that they are being faced with. With reading, I am very focused on helping students sound out a word that they are stuck on so that they gain the skills needed to figure out words on their own. I feel the same way about spelling, I take a slightly phonics based approach to helping students. I am very interested in helping students be successful with their work.
