Unlike middle school and high school, elementary schools usually have the kids exposed to one or two teachers throughout the day. If that teachers holds strong to their teachings, that is the result of the students’ learning. “...further research should be conducted in a large number of schools…” (Anyon). I agree with her idea of a certain relation between the social status of schools and their teachings, but there are also a lot of factors and variables that may differ from school to

First and foremost it is important to plan the meeting which includes being very clear as to why a meeting is required, what is to be accomplished and who is expected at the meeting. The different types of meetings held in the school are important to ensure that children achieve their potential and staff can work in an environment that is supportive, yet challenging. Different meetings enable information to be shared, decisions to be made, and ideas to be shared with others. The different meetings mean that each area of the school community can connect with each other. It is important that all know what the governors and senior leaders are trying to achieve.
Through this knowledge, the teacher can presume how children of a particular age group will act, what they are capable of doing and what they are not likely able to do. Consequently, the teacher can devise activities rather confidently by taking all these aspects into consideration. At this stage, the teacher can take advantage of the windows of opportunity for the child’s growth. In other words, the teacher benefits from the sensitive period of a child’s development to provide him with enriching activities; the best period for the child to learn and develop further. In addition, what the children learn should be relevant to their environment and life experiences.
Even though Skinner’s theory influences current practice there are also other theorists that have influenced practice relating to practice. Jerome Bruner created the theory of Scaffolding and cognitive growth. He believed in the importance of the environment and social and cultural factors in order to help a child’s learning and development. He also believed that children are active problem solvers and they are able to explore difficult areas with help of practitioners. Bruner’s theory links in closely with Vygotsky’s theory as they both stress about the importance of involving the partnership of parents in order to develop a child’s learning further.

Children’s programs should be based on children’s needs as they are going to grow, develop and mature in educators’ care and planned programs. Therefore, this is essential for educators to define their philosophy in education. Equality and Diversity It is important that an educator must consider the individual differences and design curricula that suitable for every child. I believe that all children are individuals, unique in their abilities, from a wide diversity of backgrounds and cultures, and they also have the right to be treated with dignity and respect. Educators are observers and designers who have to observe children’s abilities, interests and learning styles for designing a curriculum that fulfill everyone’s needs.
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.
