Fieldwork Thoughts


Observe your fieldwork classroom and determine what elements/principles of constructivist practice you see.  Jot down your observations and reflect on the findings
 explained to me that for the children's center work they work in in small groups about 3-4 days a week.  During their centers, the student's work together to solve problems in various topics.  These can range from writing letters, to solving puzzles, to working together for make spelling words.  Although this is not exactly following the principles of constructivism, the children are able to make their own discoveries through learning and collaborating with one another.  Being that it was toward the end of the school year, I did not get to observe the students in action during much of their class time, but Mrs. A did express to me the need for children this age to interact with one another and make discoveries and learn through play.
