    Class Observational Guide:

       1.   Go around the Learning Resource Center.
       2.   See what learning resources are present.
       3.   Examine how the materials are arranged and how they are classified. Are they free from dust and
            moisture? Are they arranged for easy access?
       4.   Look for the guidelines/procedures posted or available for the users to refer to?
       5.   Familiarize yourself with the guidelines and procedures. You may choose to take photos of the center if

 The school has resources that are very important to the teaching – learning process. Electronic
resources were used as means of learning new concepts and new ideas to the learner. Science
laboratory are the place were they can engage in a close-to-reality kind of experience since the
laboratory has many real-like figures and equipments useful for there learning.

    II- Analysis
           1. Were the learning resources/materials arranged properly according to their
               functions and characteristics?

     Yes, the resources or the materials were being arranged properly. They have a special room for
    learning computer concepts and all the specimens, data, realia, models and mock ups were put
    in their science room for their science activities.

           2. Do the guidelines and procedures facilitate easy access to the materials by the
              teachers? Why? Why not?

         Yes, students can come at any given time if they want to look at the things displayed in their
    science room, they can also ask the facilitator of the science room if they have a project or any
    questions about the subject matter. But I also do understand the concern of the teachers parti -
cularly their computer subject teacher if they will not allow or let their students to have an easy
access to their materials. Only through their permission or guidance that the student can access
such materials .

       3. What are the strengths of this Learning Resource Center?

     The strength is that the teacher or the facilitator of the learning resource center has mastery
of the subject matter or is a knowledgeable individual. Their ways of imparting learning to her
students are commendable. The science laboratory offers a wide variety of specimen/materials
that help the learners develop their imagination. They become more interested to know such
idea that they are not familiar with. The computer center has many computers that can cater a
section with not more than 15 learners.

       4. What are its weaknesses?

         There’s no enough space to move around since there’s too much things stuffed in their .
science room. In their computer room, students were not given an extra time to access their
computer lab if in case they want to learn more or explore the many applications of the compu-

       5. What suggestions can you make?

    Bigger room so that there will be enough space to display other specimens or equipment rele
vant to the learning process, and for students to do some activities inside the learning resource
center. Computer center should have more computer units to cater the whole class since most
of the section in the public elementary has more than 15 learners. They should be given an allo-
wance to explore or navigate the other uses of the computer. They should be allowed to enter
the computer room whenever they have their assignments or things that they have not finish

III- Reflections

       1. Which of the materials in the learning resources caught your interest the most?

     Aside from the computer that has bigger monitor than what I expected, I was amazed by
Their science laboratory. Because of the wide variety of specimen and objects displayed in it.
Outside their science room, they have also a “Greenhouse” garden where medicinal plants are
Being planted of which they’re going to sell it for those who wants to buy it. Those medicinal
Plants were planted by the students themselves , and if sold, they’re going to use the money
for their future projects.
         2. Which gadgets/materials are you already confident to use/operate?

  I think, the computer in their computer room that I’m comfortable using or operate. But only
The basic computer application.

         3. Which ones do you feel you need to learn more about?

   Computer applications that I’m not yet familiar. And the things I have seen in their science
room amazes me, that is why I want to know how do they preserve such specimen or should I
say, I want to know how to run a science laboratory.

          The bulletin board is located near the entrance gate, outside the Principal and Guidance
    Office. Yes, the bulletin board is in the place where students or even parents and pass-Byers
    can see them. Posted on the bulletin board were announcement and information written on a
    white sheet bondpaper with a DepEd seal on it. There is a posting also about those who are
    interested to apply as a teacher in their school. There is this tarpaulin located at the end side
    of the bulletin board that has the picture of Dora on it and has letters printed about the
    qualities of a true DJAL students. The bulletin was a bit dry and boring for me and it did not
    cater to the students. The overall message was not that clear to me or the postings are not
    that relevant in a student point of view.

                               An Evaluation Report of a Bulletin Board

Bulletin Board Evaluated by:     Greggy Q. Encinares

Location: Outside the Principal and Guidance Office

Brief Description of the Bulletin Board:

      Board is made up of wood, no cover and there are postings in bond paper mostly coming
from DepEd or has a seal of DepEd on it.

                                           Strengths                          Weaknesses
                              Visitors can easily recognize     The postings are dry and boring.
Observations                  what’s written on the bulletin The postings on the bulletin are
                              since it is located in the area not so relevant to the students

                              where people can immediately
                              recognize it.                or not focused on the learners,
                                                           instead they posted information
                                                           that young learners cannot
                                                           comprehend. No plastic cover or a

Judgments/Evaluation          Most of the postings have DepEd Postings on the bulletin should

                                                                 want your students as well the

                                                                 students activities.

Recommendations or suggestions for improvement:

     There should be a covering or outer cover for the bulletin board to protect its content. The
bulletin board should display students activities or anything that involves the learners. They should
put more colorful stuff in their bulletin that are relevant to the students as well as the school in
general to catch or attract attention, and so that people and learners will be engage on it.

    IV- Analysis
        1. Did the board display design reflect the likes/interests of its target audience? Why?
           Why not?

          Not really, the postings are for those concerned people only, not the learners. It only cater
    to those who are interested to apply for their school and for those involved in DepEd
    information like teachers and other professionals.

       2. Was the language used clear and simple for the target audience to understand?
          Why? Why not?
    Yes, somehow since the postings were intended for professionals not for the young students
of the school. But unfortunately, even parents of some students in this public will have a hard
understanding its content.
    3. What do you think was the purpose of the board display? Was it effective? Why?
        Why not?

       On the part of some people concern, yes it is. But on the part of the students, I don’t
Think they understood what has been written on their bulletin board. Aside for the tarpaulin for
Dora character on it which has the qualities of a DJAL students and since it’s written in Tagalog.

   4. What suggestions can you make?

       I think if they have special postings related to DepEd, they should have another bulletin
Board for that, or it could be that they would have another bulletin board wherein students
Past activities or even up-and-coming events or activities will be posted.

V-     Based on your suggestions, propose an enhanced version of the display board. Use
the form below.

                                 My Proposed Board Display

               Students Previous and Up – Coming Activities!

Board Title:
                  School Activities

              For people and students-alike to be aware about their school activities and what
to expect on the up-coming events.

                Have the advanced student or group of school officers put their portfolios in
the showcase. It’s the students’ responsibility to show their work to the best of their ability.
Students may add interesting objects to explore their showcase.

Best features of my proposed bulletin enhancement:

                I am going to use boxes to create a “broad way show” look. To simulate lights,
I am going to use yellow labels and inside the boxes, I am going to display previous students
work or picture of work, and also I may put there, “What for Upcoming Events”, so students
will have a knowledge about what will be our next activities.
Content Resources (Name each needed resource and give each a brief description)

            Colorful pictures, I will be using colored cartolinas, printed materials, since it can
attract learners if you have this colorful but not disturbing posting in their bulletin board. A
glass cover to protect the postings on the bulletin board.

Materials for aesthetic enhancement:

              I may asked donation from the school to have some sort of glass cover on the
bulletin board which I think is very important, to preserve and protect its content. I may also
use a flannel board so that it would be easy to put things or paste things if there’s changes that
to be made.

VI- Reflections

   1. Name at least five (5) skills that a teacher should have to be able to come up with an
      effective board displays. Elaborate on why each skill is needed.

       The skills that a teacher needs to create an effective board display could include:
1. Creativity - Instructional content can be dry and boring in a classroom setting. Creative teacher
tries to present concepts and content in an interesting way.
2. Visual Skills - Teachers are somewhat like interior designers; they must be able to visualize the
presentation and impact they want to create, then apply those to the display.
3. Organizational Skills – This goes along with # 2, but organization includes comparing and con-
trasting, grouping and arranging content in a meaningful way.

4. Communication – Teachers know that words combined with visual content can often commu-
nicate more than words alone. As well, the teacher must be a good communicator.
5. Minimalistic Views – Good teachers know they must minimize content to the basic building
block they want to teach. Rather than a display aimed at students who understand the most, the
best, or the easiest, the display would be shared to include students who understand the least,
the poorest and the hardest.

   2. Which of the skills do you already have? Recall your past experiences in making
      board displays. How do you practice these skills?

       I do have a bit of creativity, organizational and communication skills. I have done some
postings In our room before and even in the school that I am teaching at. It attract students if
you have that colorful background and they also love to see their faces or they schoolmates pos
ted on it. And make sure also that what you posted on your board will be of great importance
to your student or audience. I also have a visual skills since I wanted to get their attention with
the display I am going to make.

   3. Which skill do you need to develop? Reflect on how you can improve on or acquire
      these skills?

        I think, more on the minimalistic view and creativity. There are lots of ways or techniques
that I am not aware of or that I haven’t try yet because I don’t know how to do it. That’s why
There’s a need for me to be expose to a lot of bulletin board displays so that I can apply it on my
Own bulletin board. Surfing the net could be of big help since internet offers a wide variety of
Sample board displays and techniques on be effective on it.

                           UTILIZATION OF TEACHING AIDS FORM

Grade/Year Level of Class Observed: Grade II - 3

Date of Observation: September 16, 2011

Subject Matter: English

Brief Description of the Teaching Approach Used by the Teacher:

     Classroom discussion about the plural form of a given noun. Assessment done by the
teacher through completing the sentence with the appropriate plural form. Teacher uses a
manila paper and chalkboard as her visual aid in the teaching – learning process.

   1. What do you think prompted the teacher to choose the materials/learning resources
      that she/he used?

        Since, her topic has already been discussed by her in her previous years, she used the
same material again or it could be that to save money and effort. But in all fairness to the tea-
cher, she was able to used or discussed it further and wrote it on the chalkboard. It is also impor-
tant that the teacher should use other materials aside from writing it down on the chalkboard all
the time.

   2. What difficulties, if any, did the teacher experience? How can this be managed?

       Mostly because of the pupils misbehaving, some learners were not listening and they
were doing their own thing in their seats. If only the teacher uses a picture of what her topic is
all about. She could have inserted some colored pictures about her topic, that would get her
learners attention and for sure students will be interested in the classroom discussion.

   3. Over-all, were the learning resources/materials used effectively? Why? Why not?

        During this observation, somehow the material were being used effectively since the ma-
terial was just for evaluation or a sort of assessment if the learners were able to understand the
topic or the discussion. But, it could have been better if the words or letter were written clearer
and legibly, and the overall appearance of the material would be appealing to the eye, not a just
a recycled material that’s too obvious.

III- Reflections
         Put yourself in the place of the teacher. What would you do similarly and what
would you do differently if you will teach the same lesson to the same group of students?

        I would start my class with a prayer. And then do some exercise like what the teacher did
At the start of the class. Then I will have a sort of review about what we have discussed. If they
Did understand our previous topic, then I will proceed to next topic, knowing that my students
Have already learned my previous lesson. Since my topic is all about plural form of a given noun,
I am going to have the word “Plural” written on a colored cartolina and post it on the chalkboard.
and also, I may show them a chart with pictures about plural nouns. Then, to learn more about
plural nouns or forms, I am going to give them more examples of what is the plural form of a gi-
ven noun and use it in a sentence. To have a participation from the class, I am going to ask some
pupils to give examples of plural nouns and they may use it a sentence as well. They could act-
out some plural nouns that can be acted out, or I am going to bring things or objects that are in
plural form, to give students a clearer picture on what do “plural” nouns look like, since it this to-
pic involves numbers. At the end of the discussion, if we still have time, I am going to have some
some sort of evaluation or a short quiz about the topic or it could be that I am going to give them
assignments about plural forms of a given noun or they can list down the plural forms of their
chosen nouns as many as they can. Assignment will be check at the start of the class by the follo-
wing day.

     II- Analysis
             Give at least three benefits of doing a survey of available materials before making
     your own materials? Explain each.

      Elementary students should be taught about our country’s presidents. They are an impor -
tant figures in our Philippine culture and these personalities shaped our country of what it has
become today. Since most learners in the public schools are visual learners, it is very important
for them to know more about these political figures especially what they look like. That’s why is
important to present the topic accompanied by pictures or anything that they have vision or they
can see who these personalities are.


        Using teaching aids are very important. Since my topic is about past presidents of the Phili
ppines, the lesson should be presented chronologically. I could use a timeline for this topic, even
a postcards with the date they became president. After the familiarization of the ordering on
when they became presidents, I can have a film showing depicting the events that truly hap-
pened during their reign as president of the Philippines and showcasing their great contribution
to the country. At the beginning of the film showing, I could insert their lifestory and how they
became the most powerful person in the country, and the struggle they’ve been through before
they’ve reached the highest position in the land. That would be very interesting since it could
inspire and motivate the learners to reach their ambition in life.


        The sequencing or the order of events are very important, that is why learner should be
familiar as to who comes first. The timeline chart is a good teaching aid to help students analyze
the sequencing or the chronological pattern of events. You need to ask the learners first if they
know the past presidents or who among the past presidents they are familiar with and the year
they became president, or if they’ve seen or familiar with their faces. The young learners of to-
day don’t know who are our past presidents and what they look like that’s why it is of great im-
portance to have a film showing about this topic.

       1. Which of the materials did you like making the most? Why?

       Making timeline about the presidents of the Philippines is what I like the most doing. In
Making a PowerPoint presentation regarding this topic is a good teaching-aid for students to
Learn since you can add many important information about the subject matter. You can also add
some videos or documentary films and relevant photos in presenting this to your class. Projec-
tion system or PowerPoint presentation is a good tool for students to be engaged in classroom
discussion and a great help for the teaching – learning process in general.

       2. What difficulties, if any, did you encounter in making the materials? How did you
          overcome them?

          Since there’s a lot of information that students need to know or would like to know
About these personalities, the hardest part is to narrow down the most important information
Or details about these presidents that your are going to present in the class. And another could
Be a hindrance is that PowerPoint presentation need an electronic device, like projection system
And a computer or laptop, if one these equipment is not available or not working, then it can
Jeopardize your presentation or your plan. Also, you need to have an electricity to run these
Equipment so that means your room should have an electrical outlet or you need to go to a room
Which you can have a film showing. No presentation will be made if one of these equipment aint
Working or not available.

       3. What tips can you give teachers regarding preparation of teaching materials?

           They need to plan it before presenting it to the class. Planning on what to present and
how to present it is very important since the outcome or result of this will be base mostly on the
Planning stage. You should also be familiar with the topic that your are going to present in the
Class. Make sure that you are knowledgeable on the subject matter and how you were able to
Come-up or made such materials since students may ask you about this and you should be pre-
Pared in answering them or giving them information.

         The students will be given a sense chart of which they can list details for each in its co-
Lumn. This chart has five column and each column has a type of senses like for example, in the
First example, you need or the students need to list things that they can see through the use of
The sense of sight. The next column is for the sense of hearing, then the third one will be the
Sense of touch. The fourth column will be for the sense of taste, and the last column will be for
The sense of smell. This is an activity for the whole day period, inside the school premise. They
Can do this activity during class or during break or recess time. This will allow them to scan or
Look for things in their surroundings and their record on their sense chart the things that in-
Volves the five senses. I may have them pass their sense chart on the following day.
