The presentation of the film was effective to how the message was given because the baby doll was big compared to the other toys, which were all very small because they were playing toys for children, the baby had the mind of a baby and would go try and get what it wants. How the baby was given in the story was also effective because it played a role in how the message was given by the short film.

I thought this short film could be funny to younger audiences and creativeness setting in the background helped display the humor.

I feel that the Creative Curriculum aligns with how I would like my classroom to become. I like when there is a routine, because it keeps things in order. I believe children need that structure when it come to learning, so they know what to expect next. My classroom will be space appropriate, like the Creative Curriculum, where there is enough room to move around from center to center with ease. The children will be directed by the teacher, but work independently and learning to make decisions on their own.
Classroom discipline model developed by Lee Canter in 1987 (Newman, 2013). The main focus was to allow teachers to teach children in an environment where they "have a right to learn and a right to have a classroom free from behavior disruption to their learning" (Tuckman & Monetti, 2011, p.464).
