In “When Children Draw” by Sandra Crosser Ph. D she believes that the drawing or scribbling plays an important role in a child’s physical, emotional and cognitive development. It allows children to express their emotions, autonomy, and build confidence. Kellog (1970) described 20 basic scribbles tend to using during their first exploratory stage. Most children do not use all of these scribbles (Cox, 1992).
It is also a sign of respect towards the child. When settling new children into the setting, I always like to make extra effort to talk to the child or play with the child on their settling sessions. I find this comforts the child as the child will then get to know me and familiarise themselves with me being there at nursery. For example, we had a child who really liked the ducks we had in the room and the rabbit we have outside, therefore I would ask the child if they would like to see the animals or stroke the animals. If the child would like to go, I would put out my hand so they can walk with me rather than follow me.
This gives the child confidence to explore their environment and develop a good sense of self-esteem. This will help the child to grow up being happy and will help shape a childâ€™s ability to form other relationships later in life. If a child canâ€™t rely on their adult to look after them and respond to
Edward Tronic features an infant and a mother. Infants are very responsive from what they get from the world around them. The mother begins by sitting down with her baby, which is around a year of age. She begins to play with her baby, making faces with her baby and the baby will begin to look back at the mother and display positive emotions back. They are coordinated in a way that the baby is happy with what the mother is doing.
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 make friends, to negotiate with others, and to develop their communication skills. It helps extend language and improve children’s social ability. I believed that play is essential to children’s education that cannot be minimized and separated from learning.
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
Developing emotional resiliance, self reliance, principles, morals and learning to maintain friendships and relationships with others. In the first six months of life, babies will communicate through crying to express their needs, such as hunger, tiredness, warmth or emotional comfort. They will smile and form a close bond with their main caregivers. They will respond to their name between 3 and 9 months of age, and by 9 months will start to view themselves as a seperate person to others. They will become more
They also need play opportunities with adults which will allow children to learn that play is enjoyable. Physical play encourages babies and toddlers to move and to learn to coordinate their movements. When children have play opportunities it helps develop children’s fine and gross motor movements.
â€‹ 2 year olds will try to bring words together in short phrases. Their limbs grow quickly and so their center of gravity changes which helps them to start walking. Most children will start to walk in their second year. Their identity will begin to show around this age. For example food they like or dislike, games they like to play and certain toys and key people.
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.
