Children are able to develop and practise motor skills and bodily movements through physical plays. During some cognitive games, such as board games and educational toys, children can improve their mental fitness and brain function. Play also provides opportunities for children to develop their communication skills by making friends and negotiating with others. It helps children extend their language and improve social ability. I believed that play is essential to children’s education that cannot be minimized and separated from learning.
Early Childhood Education : Role of Technology Abstract Early childhood education (ECE) is a type of educational program which relates to the teaching of young children in their preschool years. It consists of many activities and experiences designed to assist in the cognitive and social development of preschoolers before they start elementary school. In most early childhood programs and schools, technology will be part of the learning background of the future. To make sure this new technology is used effectively, we must assure that teachers are fully trained and supported. In this paper, theoretical perspectives of child development are discussed with the basic elements of learning program.
It is how they start learning various things about themselves and the ways of the world. Choosing The Best Educational Toys For Toddlers When the kids play with the right types of children toys, their physical, mental, emotional, social, and communication skills develop better and faster. Playing is vital for child development. Those who had insufficient learning experiences as an infant, toddler or preschooler faced learning problems later at school. When children play with toys and various game items, they unknowingly learn different core and sophisticated skills.
This game connects to the child’s physical, Intellectual, emotional, and social development. Physical development is the maturation of bones,muscles,motor skills, and senses. Physically, the child enhances their fine and gross motor skills. For example, when the child reaches for the puzzle piece the child is using large muscles, and when they pick up the piece they’re using the pincer grip which is the small muscles.Intellectual development is the improving of mental processes, memory, perception, and imagination. Intellectually,the puzzle stimulates the left side of the brain which is in control of their problem solving skills.
The preoperational stage emphasizes the major change in symbolic activity, leading children into make-believe play. The development in drawing is also rapid as children go from scribbles, to recognizable shapes, to realistic drawings, learning the boundaries of objects. Children also see their world in an egocentric view in the preoperational stage, impacting their abilities to see from other’s point of view and making them use mental approaches to solve problems separately each time than using a perceptual approach. But they do move from basic categorization to sub-categorizing objects and people. In the concrete operational stage, their schemas and categorization grows even larger, more logical.
The DCSF (2008) support this by saying through play babies and young children learn, grown and have fun. It helps them understand the world and develop socially and emotionally. Another way in which practices can support this is by following the Early Years Foundation Stage, it provides each unique child with opportunities to interact in positive relationships and enabling environments. The EYFS follows four main themes underpinning all the guidance of how to
Teachers play a significant role in modeling social skills and arranging positive social environment (Lynch & Simpson, 2010). Research shows that when children acquire strategies to communicate, cope, and manage impulses can maintain focus in learning contexts (Wooley & Rubin,
Nursery rhymes provide a unique learning context for preschoolers in regard to their emergent literacy and musical development. According to Vygotsky’s social constructivist theory (1978), in order for learning to occur, children must face challenges, and adults must provide support to guide them toward mastery of new skills. The current pilot study began with the aim of documenting teachers’ reactions to nursery rhymes in relation to their level of difficulty. Eighty-eight kindergarten teachers were asked to use the new nursery rhymes in their classrooms. Then, they were asked fill out a questionnaire to document their reactions and their ratings of the linguistic and musical difficulty.
The early reader: develops more confidence and uses a variety of methods, such as relying on visual cues, to identify words in texts adapts his or her reading to different kinds of texts recognizes many words, knows a lot about reading, and is willing to try new texts 4. The fluent reader: thinks of reading as a good thing and does it automatically uses a variety of methods to identify words and their meaning scan read various kinds of texts and predict events in a story relates the meaning of books to his or her own experience and knowledge, and understands what is new It takes time to pass through each of these stages, and your child will need plenty of attention and support as he or she moves through them. You can play a leading role in helping your child acquire the reading skills he or she needs to
