After the Task - Reflection
Choose 3 best practices you observed during your time in school. Reflect on these and consider
why you would implement these in a UAE primary classroom in the future. Explain how these
practices will affect student learning and reading levels in a primary class.

* I choose reading stories. Every Thursday teacher give student’s different stories depend on
the level of the students. It’s very important to devote time to reading the stories because
will help learners improve their speech such as grammar. Also educate them to improve
their knowledge and help students’ brain, social skills and communication skills develop.
And I choose the good classroom environment learning. Teacher display in the wall students
works to show us that she educates the students in best way. Also she display in the wall
vocabulary words to help students when they writing or when they speaking to look at the wall
to remember. This means teacher and students working hard and they have the evidences of
their works.

And I choose writing activity. Teacher first model for the students about family tree, after that
they give students the note books to copy from the smart board and write it in the note book.
To encourage and develop students their spelling and grammar.
