The Head Start and Reggio Emilia approaches have respect for teacher, children, families, and community through school and home. They have the children become active learning with parent as partner, observe, learner, and support from their children’s learning. They engage families in planning activities and learning experiences in their home for their children that work in innovative,
This is crucial in early child development setting because it provides students confidence about themselves, and encourage them to think to make decisions. Each learning area is accessible, arranged, accommodated and equipped with learning materials that promotes children to play. Upon my arrival as children were transitioning from breakfast to the learning centers, the young learners already knew were they wanted to play. According to my host teacher, because the children has been expose to explore and play in all areas throughout the week they come to school ready to learn while enjoying playing. My focus
Children learn new things through everyday life experience. Especially, young children who attend to the program of day-care or preschool can develop speaking skills while they play and interact with peers and teachers, such as free play time, teacher-directed activities, and having snack and lunch together. According to Janice J. Beaty (2014), “spoken language is one of the important skills” (p. 197) and a child’s language acquisition begins at birth and progress through everyday life: young children go through the four stages, Preproduction (just listen) Transition to Production (response with single-word answers), Early Production (speak short phrases, do chat, sing, and have a simple conversation), Expansion of Production (speak expanded
When we are kids, we are taught the basic things we need, like: how to eat, how to go to the bathroom, how to talk, how to walk, and how to play with others. As we get older, we are taught information that will prepare us for our future adult life. We go to school to learn about what we want to do career wise later on in life. Then, we use that information and apply it when we are actually working as adults. Many aspects of life can be game-like, depending on which way you look at it.

Some of the areas were used for quiet time, noisier activities, and more active learning. This related to the (Component 2e) because organizing physical space around the classroom provides the student a variety of ways to learn together or alone inside the classroom while also developing their social skills and working through any academic or social difficulties (Component 2d). Lastly, at Head Start the lead teacher provided the students with daily duties inside the classroom. For example, some of the students had the responsibility to clean up stations, and prepare the snack/lunch for the class.
One of the teachers that effectively utilized each of those strategies was in a pre k classroom. In the morning the teacher would write an interactive morning message for the kids (Sanchez, Danielle D. “Planning for Positive Guidance: Powerful Interactions Make a Difference PG 9). After that, the kids were to put a puzzle together as a team. When a certain song came on, it was time to clean up the puzzle and get in line to brush teeth and wash your hands. After all those tasks were done, then the kids would go to the round carpet.
During the smaller group activity, children are provided more direct instruction and guidance from the teacher and concentrate more on the action and musicality of instructions. The use of the song, and opportunity to rehearse the model’s actions all contribute to the students processing and encoding strategies of absorbing the new

After snack time was over it was time to clean up their messes from the table. There were many different areas that the children could choose from, there was a music area, reading, jungle gym and even a sensory table. On this day of observation, there was a set up at the table where there was paint placed into zip-lock bags and the bags where then tapped onto the table. After being tapped onto the table the children could come over and feel the bags with the paint inside, there were multiple bags with other colors. Another activity that the toddlers got to enjoy on that day was an activity at the sensory table.
