Allocate at least 3 hours in the field to support this field experience.
Observe in a birth-pre-K classroom setting. If possible, observe more than one classroom at your field experience site. During your observations, take note of family engagement strategies and volunteer opportunities that support the learning needs in the classroom environment.
Following your field experience, reflect on your observations and discussions with the classroom teachers. In 250-500 words, discuss three different classroom routines and activities observed or discussed during your field experience that would integrate families, the home, and the school environment.
1. How does each routine and activity integrate the students’ personal, family, and community experience and cultural norms?
2. How will you integrate these routines and activities into your future classroom to collaborate with families to build a positive and respectful learning environment?
Support your assignment with 3-5 scholarly resources that support the selected routines and activities.
