The colour monster

1 comment

 

In daily life it is important to understand what you are doing. You decide whether you have to continue or whether changes are necessary. Self-observation can be expressed as a personal navigation device. The student keeps track of the actions that are carried out. In the example below, children in Brussels education register their feelings within the classroom context.

 

The kindergarten teacher uses Anna Llenas' book 'The Colour Monster'. For young children, feelings are often something abstract. The girl helps the monster to express the feelings by means of colours. The feelings are each given a colour: happiness yellow, angry red, sad blue and calm green.

 

In the third kindergarten class this is visible on the basis of a clear diagram, in which the pupils express their own feelings to their fellow pupils and classmate by means of the colours.

Thanks for sharing! I love the book and use it with my toddler at home as well!

    What? Self-reflection means that students react to their assessment of the study results with certain feelings and thoughts. Self-satisfaction means that students assess their performance after completing a task. By motivating the students, they are motivated to continue and this has a positive influence on future attempts to learn something. How? I found the example below in our teacher's room last week. The original goal was for the teacher to assess a guided process of the Centre's Support Network in an original way. I thought that this method of evaluation also works for learners. The picture shows four different questions for the learner, linked to a candy: 1. This will certainly stick! - I'll take some of this with me. 2. Here I draw faces. - I didn't like these things. 3. A big leap forward. - I found this really useful. After putting an answer into words, you take the candy. Who? The above differentiation techniques can be used for each learner. #selfreflection #selfsatisfaction

    What? Within the execution phase, it is important for both the instructor and the learner to set up the learning environment. The self-regulating learner must maintain concentration and interest while learning. Setting up a learning environment translates into creating an environment with less disturbing stimuli, elements that support the learning process. How? During the processing process many learners experience both internal and external disturbances. For both factors, there are numerous tools available, so that the learner can work in a differentiated way. - It is not always easy for a child to sit still in one place for a long period of time. For this reason, noise causes an internal disturbance factor in itself and an external disturbance factor for his peers. An elastic band between the legs of their table provides the necessary distraction. A child can wiggle, stretch his legs or put his feet on them. - Within individual assignments it is not easy to concentrate as a student. External noises can be avoided by wearing hearing-protected headphones. - The third and final example is a shield (through folders, wooden panels, ...) that aims to reduce the number of distracting stimuli. Who? The above differentiation techniques can be used for each learner, adapted to his/her age. #learningenvironmentdesign

    What? Result expectations are the belief about the probability with which a task will succeed. It is important that students set the right goals for themselves. In addition, the instructor in charge can be a motivator to help improve students' outcome expectations by emphasizing learning and individual progress in the classroom. If a learning ring, learns that 'success' means that he/she has improved, then the learner will have higher outcome expectations than a learner who compares him/herself to the best learners in the class. How? Based on the above theory, a teacher created a document in which the pupils first and foremost set their own goals and thus articulate their expectations for results. In this way the teacher emphasizes that commitment is important to achieve something. The students themselves can divide 50 points, so that after realizing each goal they will experience a successful experience. Who? The document is suitable for pupils in the first grade of primary education. #expectationsofresults
