SECTION A:

PRE-SERVICE TEACHER TO COMPLETE 1-5

1. Brief Description of the Project and its Outcomes

This year I am placed at Edithvale Primary School in Foundation. For maths the three foundation
classes are split up into three groups that have been designed to focus on what the students
mathematical needs are. For my ACP I have been assigned to the support focus group. My ACP aim
was that by the end of term 2 the support group could count, order and write numbers 1-10. In order to
help the students reach this goal I planned a sequence of maths games designed to enhance their skills
and knowledge in this area. I made a variety of resources that I have left with the prep team to continue
to use in years to come. The results of the program were very successful, but due to time constraints
the outcome of my aim was reached at a later time frame.

2. Provide evidence of how project aims were met or not met and why with reference to relevant
educational theory / or literature or policy cited in the plan.

The aim of my ACP was to provide 6 engaging lessons to the support focus group so by the end of the
last lesson they are able to successfully count, order and write numbers 1-10.
I know that these aims were met as I conducted formative and summative assessment to prove that
each child can successfully count, order and write numbers 1-10.
In order to reach my aims I used the Teaching Primary Mathematics textbook by George Booker as my
reference/ recourse to guide my process. I used this book, as it is the resource used by all staff
throughout Edithvale Primary School. I also used my mentor Jaime, my more knowledgeable other
(MKO) to learn effective ways to deliver my lessons.

3. Comment on progress according to your Action Plan and advise of any changes to this plan and the
reasons for any changes.

The nine tasks on my Action Plan were all completed with a successful outcome, although the dates of
Start and End program of the Actions Plan were different. Due to multiple changes made in the class
schedule I was not able to finish my numbers 1-10 program before the end of term 2. Starting the
program in term 3 turned out to be a positive. I was able to use the program for those who were
struggling with the concept, as well as a refresher for the other students. The program was successful in
teaching the students to count, order and write numbers 1-10 in as well as cementing the knowledge for
those who had previously been able to successfully count, order and write numbers 1-10.
4. Evaluate the success or otherwise of the outcomes with reference to the evaluation methodology
described in the plan.

The steps of the evaluation methodology described in the plan were completed as described with a
successful outcome. Throughout the program I was able to see the growth in each student and after my
final session was able to successful determine that all members of the support focus group were able to
successfully count, order and write numbers 1-10.
Below are the lesson plans of the final two sessions along with evidence of students playing the games
and final work.

Session 1
Activity 1**Summative Assessment Activity
Fill in the blanks activity
Use Teacher demonstration on floor with students to demonstrate activity
Students to go back to tables and fill out work sheet
Once all students finish gather back on floor and discus answers
Activity 2Bingo numbers 1-10 activity
**Formative Assessment Activity
Demonstrate bingo activity on floor with students
Students have one bingo card each- play bingo
Activity 3Celebrity heads numbers 1-10 activity
**Formative Assessment Activity
Students on floor x2 students standing up on whiteboard
A student on floor chooses a number between 1-10 and writes it on white board behind head
Student asks questions to try and guess what number they are.
Once guessed swap
Season 2
Activity 1All about number worksheet
**Summative Assessment Activity
On floor show students worksheet. Explain what they would do with multiple different numbers.
Give each student a number between 1-10 and worksheet
Students to go back to tables and fill out work sheet
Once all students finish gather back on floor and go over worksheets from 1 to 10
Activity 2Blocks activity
**Summative Assessment Activity
Explain/ demonstrate activity on floor
Teacher yell out random number between 1 and 10- students to stack together that number of blocks
Once all numbers 1 10 have been made ask students to put them in order 1 -10
Activity 3Memory Activity

5. Professional Skills Utilised


Describe how each of the 5, or more, professional skills nominated in your plan were used / applied during the ACP.

Professional skill

How the skill was used / applied

Planning

Planning was a huge skill required to successfully complete my


ACP. I planned each lesson with exciting and engaging games in
order for the students to reach my outcomes. I planned one
lesson at a time, so I could evaluate the students progress after
each lesson and plan the next lesson accordingly.

Negotiating

With the change of the schedule, negotiation was a vital skill.


Jaime and I had to negotiate the new days, which suited both our
schedules, for me to come in and take the numbers 1-10 lessons.

Communicating

Jaime and I were in constant communication throughout the


whole process. We communicated via email, face to face and
occasionally via text message. I used my communication skills in
order to connect and converse with the students. The fact that the
students can now successfully count, order and write numbers 110 proves that my communication with the students was clear and
well delivered.

Researching

I researched a variety of educational games to keep the students


engaged and help them reach their goal to successfully count,
order and write numbers 1-10. I use the maths textbook used by
Edithvale Primary School as a valuable resource to begin and
develop my program.

Reporting

I shared my findings and evidence with Jaime to prove to her that


the students have reached the required outcomes. I was able to
establish clearly that all students had reached the outcome after
my final session and reported these findings to Jaime.

SECTION B:

MENTOR TEACHER (FOR ACP) TO COMPLETE

1. Please comment on the professional skills displayed by the pre-service teacher in the completion of
the project [refer to Section A, item 5 above in your response - note that additional space can be added as required].
Were the expected outcomes, as identified in the ACP Plan, met?

Jade planned and conducted this unit very well. She assessed the students understanding as she went
to ensure they were progressing accordingly and held focus groups to address individual needs. Jade
used videos and songs to engage the students and a range of hands on games and activities for the
students to practise the skills. She used the schools textbook, Teaching Primary Mathematics, and
followed the agreed Mathematics teaching sequence set out by the school. Overall, the unit was a
success as the students learned new skills and knowledge in Mathematics.
