Some parents fear leaving their children in the care of others, the quicker the positive relationship between the adult and the parent occurs, the quicker the parent will feel comfortable and adjust to the idea of leaving their child in the provision. Having a positive relationship with parents is important as it can help safeguard that individual
I have gained patience when working with children and I believe it is a skill that is required in order for children to exceed their needs and to help a child during transitions to reach their full potential. Timing is key and with support the children will be able to emotionally adapt to attending school but also embrace new surroundings. Encouragement while children are taking part in activities in school allows children to gain self-esteem and confidence as they are being motivated which can give them a sense of achievement. Being a role model to the children is a personal skill as it gives me pride knowing the children are inspired by me and that they can learn from me by using their own initiative, being helpful to others and allowing the children to give suggestions on what they would like to do can keep them
Lesson plans often incorporate activities which are fun and interesting but linked to the learning objective, therefore hooking the children’s imagination so they become motivated to take part. Ultimately we are trying to motivate children so they remain engaged, focused and on task so they complete activities and achieve the desired learning outcome. Young people and children are
Training for personal development can be very beneficial to you and the school. It is an opportunity to gain further knowledge and skill which enables you to adapt to your changing role and duties. Teaching assistants can be moved from helping in a year 6 class to reception age. The role would vary greatly and you may be given training in order to meet the expectations they would have of you. - being firm but fair with the children.
What exactly is creativity? Creativity is something that everyone has, however the amount of creativity people have varies. Children are very creative and it is important to understand the value and importance that it serves in a child’s life. Creativity is defined as “a way of thinking, acting, or making something that is original for the individual and valued by that person or others.” (Page 4) Creativity allows children to develop individuality and feel good about themselves.
Creative play and organized play has two different aspects. I beleive that creative play is more important for many reasons such as children using their imagination, sense of humor, being theirselves, and also learning new techniques while going along. Many children find that using their imagination puts them in a state of being free. Using their imagination reassures them that life is great. It lets them know that they could be anything that they put their minds into and that they could do whatever they want.
I have also learned how to act with more than just one actor one stage. Cooperation was another I learned and will help me with knowing how to work with other actors. This will help me in the future because it is important to have people around you who will help you succeed and do you best. It will also help me in the future because I learned really how to find your character and I was taught how to stay in that
This will help students who don’t always respond to written materials. They can connect students with their own environment and culture, as well as with other cultures. Teaching with pictures creates a direct, sensory connection between learners and their subjects that results in new levels of interest and attention. Thus it also creates students with higher levels of visual literacy.
Furthermore, in the society or in any social circle where young learners operate, the ability to speak and to listen is crucial in the development of their total personality and eventually social horizon. Children need to speak what they need, feel, and think to be addressed, helped, and understood. Good speaking and listening skills have benefits in one’s personal life which includes wider social circles, improved self-esteem and confidence, favorable academic work and more. In addition to these, Palmer (2014) mentioned in the introduction of his book, Teaching the Core Skills of Listening and Speaking, that making students listen a lot does not automatically make them good listeners, and occasionally making them speak in front of the class does not automatically make them good speakers.
That is why I have given scope with the choice of materials. Children who have a range of materials to choose from can ‘conjure up ideas’ (Key and Stillman, 2009). They go on to say that to have an extensive range of materials is not always the answer, ‘children can be forced to act in more imaginative and purposeful ways’. Croft et al (2001) state that ‘young children have a natural ability for using their imagination’. They go on to say that a mental image is conjured up inside the head, it may not be real or realistic but it is a process of having a new idea that was not recently thought of.
