Last Monday I got the chance to observe the class where my little daughter is attending her nursery class. It happened also that it was my first time to drop them to school because it’s my mother actually who do this assignment. When we arrived in their school I let my daughter enter their classroom right away and I told her that I’ll be back to pick her up 3 hours after which she agreed. While opening the door I take a look at inside their classroom and I saw 3-4 nannies/parents sitting beside their student. Does this mean they can’t leave their student? What’s the reaction of the teacher ’bout this?

Anyway because of what I saw I decided to set-in and observe the class without my daughter’s knowledge. The classroom is divided into 2 classes they just put a barrier in between but they have the same entrance and exit. The image above which is the left portion of the room is the Kinder 1 and Kinder 2 merged while in the right side is the Nursery 1 and Nursery 2 also merged, sorry I don’t have a pic of the other class. I was at the back of the K1 and K2 teacher sitting and observing the 2 classes. My daughter was busy with her work so she didn’t notice me hiding at the back of the little barrier.

To begin with my observation, the teacher above is teaching her students one by one when suddenly I heard the teacher complaining that the student she’s teaching can’t read. The more she was mad when one student coached the one she’s tutoring. Then she started yelling and murmuring to her students and have said this “March is almost near, why you still can’t read?”

Patience is very important to this profession. If you don’t have it then why proceed? By the way the school I am referring here is a Montessori School. I don’t know if they pass the requirements of Montessori qualifications.

    Hello,

    I agree that patience is really important for this profession. I am also a preschool teacher, I am yelling and shouting to my students. But that doesn't mean that i dont have patience for them. That is only another way to make them listen and get their attention.

    Thank you

    Defnitely i agree with you, when you deal with kids such age, you need to be careful not to hurt their feelings or intimidate them. Because they dont come up with their bright ideas if you yell at them. In case of older children probably yelling would work, but not with little nursery kids. You need to handle them as smoothly as you can.
