Instructional strategies

Teachers develop and use a wide variety of instructional strategies to ensure each child’s progress in accomplishing the expected, age-appropriate learning objectives, and to strengthen children’s confidence as learners so that they will be motivated and willing.

Teachers observe and interact with whole groups, small groups, and individuals. They pose problems, ask questions, make comments and give suggestions to stimulate children’s thinking and extend their learning.

The following instructional strategies are used while taking into consideration the developmental age, skills, interests, and background of the children:

  • Balance of active and passive activities.
  • Hands on activities combined with text books and worksheets.
  • Wide variety of novel experiences, stimulating ideas, and opportunities for problem solving.
  • Modeling and demonstrating specific skills.
  • Knowledge of differentiated instruction to plan learning experiences.
