Over the past few months, the class has been discussing typical and atypical language development and the assessment and intervention of children with language delay or disorder. In line with this, the students were asked to observe children aged 0-12 years old with language problems for 2 hours. For this requirement, I went to a therapy center situated in Quezon City last November 16, from ten (10) A.M. to twelve (12) N.N. The center has multiple rooms that are used for speech therapy and occupational therapy. During my observation, two speech pathologists and two children with language disorder were sharing one speech therapy room.
Work with children Throughout my high school and college years, I have had several experiences with children that have all played a part in shaping my love for working with children. During high school, I spent two summers nannying for two young school aged children. Working with these siblings really made me realize how much fun I have working with children and watching them grow. Once I came to college, I started another babysitting job working with two four year old twin girls. This job really taught me about the importance of children having a routine to follow as well as the impact teachers can have on a child’s life.
The entire classroom has tile flooring. Then the setting of their recess was outside. There was just a grass field, tables, and tetherball courts for the children to play with. In the fifth-grade classroom the students talked to the teacher and their peers during formal instruction. They talked to
LANGUAGE HISTORY: When T was a baby, he repeated and tried mumbling what his parents were saying. A little after 1.5 years of age, he started producing certain words, which made sense to the rest of his family. Like, “I hungry” or “I tired.” Fast-forward a bit, T went to a Montessori school starting at age two. His parents wanted him to get an early education. They put all of their children through this schooling.
Early Childhood Education Abstract Early childhood education (ECE) is a type of educational program which relates to the teaching of young children in their preschool years. It consists of many activities and experiences designed to assist in the cognitive and social development of preschoolers before they start elementary school. In most early childhood programs and schools, technology will be part of the learning background of the future. To make sure this new technology is used effectively, we must assure that teachers are fully trained and supported. In this paper, theoretical perspectives of child development is discussed with the basic elements of learning program.
Based on the work of the other theorist that she had studied Tina Bruce developed ten principles of early childhood education. Principle one The needs of children’s are different to the needs of the adult. Childhood is valuable and should be used to learn how to deal with emotional, physical and social need. Both children and adults learn from each other and they enrich other lives. Montessori believes that childhood is a state that needs to be protected and children should be allowed to develop a specially prepared environment .
This semester is my first experience being a teacher candidate and we were asked to observe the child’s learning. In the first situation, I started to focus on individual children’s observation. I divided into two situations with two different kids who is a fast learner and a slow learner. Situation 1 The first child is a class monitor named Arfa and basically he is a fast learner student. He is actively participated in answering questions from teacher and giving opinions especially in storytelling.
There are many different technologies out there that students can benefit in the classroom to help with different learning skills. There are many Internet sites that can help, computer programs that you can download for a specific subject like math or reading or even writing, and even games to name a few. As I observed the kindergarten class, the teacher had her students use the smart board to put there ABC’s in order from letter A to Z, I found quite interesting that 4 and 5 year olds new how to use this smart board to their knowledge. I believe that technology is a great advantage for students to use in a learning environment, to better their skills in the
On 13th of March, I went to kindergarten to complete my child observation task. Ms. Janelle is the person in charge of the kindergarten and she introduces Nic to me. Nic is a 5 years old kid and this year is his 2nd year in the kindergarten. As I went there after their classes, I were told to help Nic with his homework and on the same time complete my task. Nic is a very active child and able to speak fluently in English and Mandarin.
23rd of September I arrived at Curro Klerksdorp at 08:00. When Michelle arrived at 08:30, we went to the classroom in Little Saints. Today we saw 3 boys and did counselling with them and observed their behaviours. In each session, they played various games, and she spoke to them through those games. They were so focused on the game that they opened up to her without realising it.
