The essay Power of the Playground explains the effectiveness of recess and physical activity in the lives of children during their hours of school. An issue addressed in the essay is that recess is not always a fun experience due to bullying and other factors. The author, David Bornstein, introduces the audience to a new program called “Playworks”. The essay describes how this program helps improve recess for all children. Recess plays an important role in the lives of children, and Bornstein uses statistics and real life examples to inform the audience that the Playworks program provides a positive recess experience for all children.
A study done by Leatherman and Niemeyer teachers’ attitudes and behaviors were examined to see if they were including children with disabilities in classroom activities. The result of this study was that teachers were making sure no student was left out of any classroom activities. In an interview with one of the teachers she explained “that sometimes you have to make modifications for children with differing abilities, but it was worth the effort” (Leatherman & Niemeyer, 2005, p. 30). Proving that people are willing to go above and beyond to help a child. Speech therapy is only effective if everyone is helping and supporting that child.
Crain explains the detrimental effect on the independence of children due to the standardized movement. For example, Crain illustrates the shift in the academic standard in kindergarten. In chapter 4, Montessori highlighted the importance of play to the development of children. However, the academic push from the standardize movement has decreased the crucial play time for children. Crain explains that play is importance for, imagination, creativeness, and invention.
To strengthen the argument in her article, De La Cruz uses multiple examples of other teachers who have incorporated Ms. Schwartz's "I wish my teacher knew..." activity with their students. This provides a larger sample of examples and feeds into the logos of the article by showing readers a variety of testimonies as opposed to just that of Ms. Schwartz. These testimonies provided responses from teachers and parents. One parent responded in agreement of the effort to build relationship between teachers and students by saying, “I always want my sons’ teachers to know what their challenges are, what they like, just more about them.” This lead into a different quote from a fourth grade teacher who stated that she had “taught over 500 kids so far in my career and parents in every grade want to know how their child is doing socially and emotionally, often times more so than whether they can multiply or divide quite yet.” These two testimonies are excellent uses of logos because it appeals to the readers sense of reason and logic because according to the quotes, a student’s relationship with their teacher is often viewed by parents to be more important than the actual education they receive. As a result of this, the argument that all teachers and students should try to get to know one another better becomes even more
“Kids should be going to pre-k because it helps kids prepare for the social, academic, and emotional demands of Kindergarten. pre-k helps them get ready to learn,”says Sarah Murphy, an Occupational Therapist who works in the Torrington schools. There is a clear academic advantage with kids who go to pre-k. Children who attend will have an advantage in their reading and math skills.

The point of this article is basically being there for them, teach them how to be independence, have someone to be in their life that we care about them. When the kids have trouble of reading, spelling, studying, we tutorial them and give them practice skills to work on their weakness to work on. We teach them how to control their emotions. When you have a friendly relationship is to always let them know that you care about them and show them develop trust to them, have that special bond with them. It is important to teach students about the classroom rules, schools rules, daily routines, learn to practice new skills in the classroom and out of the classroom, and now their school schedule and outside of school schedule.
Education Inequality in schools has a detrimental effect on kid’s growth and development. Parents of young children may not have the awareness or financial stability to provide early education exposure in lieu of starting school. Parents must invest in their child’s education. Reinforcing what was learned in school at home maintains the continuum of learning. Guiding and teaching responsibilities, for instance, doing homework, school clubs and sports fosters independent growth.
The reason why is parents can also give children own teaching as much as possible or they think that the child is too young, and less on the early education but also not extremely clear about the age of the preschool education. However, teachers are more sensible to catch your children’s problems and they can help the student deal with the problems easier. Chaotic market in
When my teacher takes attendance she is promoting a sense of community. “Morning Meeting motivates children by addressing two human needs: the need to feel a sense of significance and belonging, and the need to have fun” (Kreite, 2014, p. 12). Taking attendance is very important because the children see that they are going to be recognized even when they are not there. I also think that when the teacher had a helper count all of the children in the class, it promotes a sense of others and community because they are able to see that they are one of the members in the classroom. The teacher poses a thoughtful question when she asks the children why they think another child is absent.
Some books do have profanity in them which children really should not read. That can be easily fixed by taking out those parts, but leaving in the negative and real world parts so children can learn about the real world early in life and they will learn the difference between good and bad actions. Books should not be banned; banned books can have an important lesson for kids to learn for the life they have ahead of them. Some people believe books should be banned from society, because some books have profanity. Correspondingly vulgar language is everywhere, children know
