Playing with other children is so important for a child’s overall socialization and development throughout their lives. In terms of how this can impact her in the classroom, how will she be able to make new friends and learn to healthily interact with other children and make it to stage 5 or 6 of play if she is always by herself? Another form of socialization that Yvelisse needs to improve in the classroom is letting other students have a turn at being center stage. Throughout the school day, Yvelisse will try as much as possible to take center stage in the classroom. For example, if the class is playing a game of “Simon Says,” Yvelisse feels as though she always has to be Simon.
She was developmentally appropriate for her age in communication skills. Using Erikson’s developmental stages, the basic conflict for preschoolers is initiative vs. guilt and important events are exploration. The child I observed took initiative while playing with toys and participating in activities. She also explored by trying new games that she had not played before. The child’s overall development was appropriate for her
They can be directed specifically to address individual areas such as speaking and listening, or can be used more generally to support all areas as they are interlinked. Play is an ideal way to engage children to communicate with others, as they can interact in a non- pressured environment. You can plan for, monitor and assess different areas of learning using play As they grow older, children will still need to be given the chance to enjoy activities and equipment that support their play, creativity and learning across the programme of teaching and learning. It is important that they are given opportunities to use their own initiative, work with others and develop in all areas. These can often be used to best effect when children are introduced to new ideas in practical, imaginative and stimulating ways.
Also the short stories such as The Very Hungry Caterpillar, by Eric Carle (1987) and The Foot Book, by Dr. Seuss (1968) are recommended for young children. She will increase her vocabulary by listening a story. Even a picture book that does not have a word, just pictures, it will be fun for Caydence to make up own story and adult can ask Caydence what is going on in the book: it promotes her curiously of a book, use her imagination, and speak what she knows. Moreover, create activities that enhance the speaking skills and promote an opportunity for Caydence to talk, such as the pretend play with cell phone and collecting items by going to a nature walk because these activities will give Caydence more opportunities of having a conversation with others. 2.
Anecdotal notes are pieces of information collected during interactions and observation of young children, or even adults. An example of anecdotal notes are written notes and video. Some advantages of anecdotal according to Chance is that "it is vital information to to effectively plan for individual children in the classroom" (Chance, 2012, para. 3). Anecdotal notes also educators to look back at what they wrote, saw, or heard to form a opinion later on.
Playing with blocks, coloring, naps, and sidewalk chalk. All fond memories of life in pre-k. For most, preschool is a time of fun and games and making your first friends. There is a lot of evidence showing children should be sent to preschool but many aren 't getting the opportunity. Thankfully, there are many options. “Kids should be going to pre-k because it helps kids prepare for the social, academic, and emotional demands of Kindergarten.
I agree that play-based learning offers diverse opportunities for children to explore, discover and create, they can also discover new things and communicate with peer during free-play time. Frobel said that “Play is the highest expression of human development in childhood, for it alone is the free expression of what is in a child 's soul” (Froebel, 1887). He believed in the importance of play in a child’s learning as creative activity. Play provided the means for a child’s intellectual, social, emotional and physical development which are necessary elements in educating the “whole” children allowing them to use all imaginative powers and physical movements to explore their interests. Children are able to develop and practise motor skills and bodily movements through physical plays.
My observations in relation to age appropriate play What is play? According to the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), “Play is an important vehicle for developing self-regulation as well as for promoting language, cognition, and social competence”. Play is recognised as so essential to children’s wellbeing and development that it is included in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (1989). The right to play is set down in Article 31. For the children I have observed play is serious but fun.
Piaget 's divide sensorimotor stage into six-sub stages. The first stage is simple reflexes which happens first month after birth, here infants learn rooting and sucking reflexes. The second stage called first habits and primary circular reactions occurs during one to four months of age. Infants creates habits resulting in repetitive action of an action. The third stage is primary circular reactions, infants try to reconstruct an experience that initially occurred by chance.
Children learn language skills by interacting with the immediate environment and training or simple structural changes can improve language skills of children (Bouchard & Gilles, 2011). The early education given in early childhood shapes foundation of the life and helps mental and academic development of child. Throughout the play and education, children learn social skills along with how to deal with others and develop their own values (Webster-Stratton & Reid, 2010). Therefore, this paper, with the purpose of developing the children’s future, discusses why it is very essential to recognize the importance of early childhood education, how it effects to person 's life and how it can be developed. 2.Disscussion of findings 2.1.
Observations will be carried out throughout the year on various of children as it is an easier way to assess their individual needs. For example, the practitioner challenging the children with activities which will increase the child 's development and skills. With the assessment framework, they come under 3 headings: Baseline assessments is assessments that are being shared with the parents of the children to ensure they are settling into the new setting and the children has many different rights in expressing their feelings and showing facial expressions. The summative assessment: is an assessment being consistency completed and that the information is being passed onto the right people and no information is misled. Formative assessment: is where children are given various opportunities and learning new
CSI COMPETENCY STATEMENT II To promote physical and psychological reasoning As a provider, I will utilize a program that will facilitate the physical, cognitive, grammar structure, and creative aptitudes of infant/pre-schoolers. The implementation of activities and various resources encourage the "oneness" of a child. Through the timely and suitable learning strategies of the four Functional Areas below, I will collectively demonstrate my ability to meet Standard II. Physical: Activities and age appropriate material will be instituted to encourage the child 's fine and gross motor skills. A broad spectrum of tasks, challenges, and curriculum will be introduced.
Family involvement was also found to be imperative to strengthening the skills of young children. The main focus of the findings center around the support a family of young students must have for the student to be successful. The more involvement an intervention method has with families, the more successful the outcome for young children. Early childhood classrooms which utilize an RTI model for intervention, “have the potential to optimize learning opportunities for all children” (Lieberman-Betz, Vail, & Chai, 2013, p. 65). These models also allow for greater inclusion of young children with special needs into preschool classrooms.
Also, children with multiple disabilities for assistive technology can help children to better their daily activities by acquiring different assistive devices for learning. According to Lorenzo Desideri (2013), suggest that assistive technology practices can help determine new improvement on assistive devices. Desideri (2013) stated that “Corte Roncanti thus seeks to integrate traditional clinical rehabilitation approaches with assistive technology interventions aimed at increasing the independence, autonomy and well-being of people with disabilities” (161). Children with disabilities will be able to increase their independence by learning how to do things for themselves. As a result, this would help disabled children to build up independence by allowing them to do things for themselves.
Professionalism to an early childcare worker is being able to engage children appropriately while staying within the environmental and cultural boundaries set by their parents. Early childhood is a crucial area of development, where many social skills and basic motor functions are learned and retained. It is fundamental for any childcare worker to understand what is and is not acceptable behavior, and how to properly guide the child into appropriate mannerisms also knowing when and how to punish certain behaviors. (Maycie Southall, 2013). The worker must be knowledgeable on how children learn, and thereby be able to engage the child into developmental play by being able to incorporate motor skills and sensory stimulation into their education.
