As children prepare to attend preschool, they obtain a number of different skills in which that help them create friendships in school. What helps this process in the preschool setting is that the age group is starting to get a firm grasp of language and communicating (pg. 27). This age group can use their new communication skills in order to, “participate in play activities” and “share ideas for play,” (pg. 27).
However, the two approaches are different views of the nature of young children 's interests, needs, that teachers interact and cooperate with children in the classroom. In my opinion Reggio Emilia approach is the best curriculum because it provides for the children, the environment and materials that met their needs, it gives the student the opportunity to think and explore. Children have a verity of options in the classroom, they can do many activities and they can choose the activity that they like without teacher promotion, and there are many areas for children, such as, dramatic area that the child can act as a police officer or a doctor or any other character they like. Moreover, there is place for cooking, playing in sand, outdoor, and many other areas that help children to explore and get knowledge. In addition, I liked the role of the teacher in the Reggio Emilia schools, they emphasis on communication with parents and children and they believe that the relationship between children and parents are the developer key for the child so they try to be in touch with the parents and include them in the school activities.
Here she learned from the teachings of Erik Erikson and Ruth Benedict. She came to the conclusion that the best way for children to learn was through memorization and self-directed learning. This creates schools that are a place to learn and a community. I feel that her view on school is very appropriate. Children especially younger children need to explore their world through play.

I feel that MSJC child development center demonstrated developmentally appropriate practices. Our text defines developmentally appropriate practice in three components, age appropriateness, individual appropriateness, and social and cultural responsiveness, page 6 of Beginning Essentials in Early Childhood Education, Gordon/ Brown, 2016. I observed the three and four-year-old classroom, half of my observation time was spent in the playground and the other half in the classroom. Per our text on (page 30) play is the primary context in which young children learn and grow. MSJC development center accommodates an appropriate environment for children to learn and grow through structured and unstructured play.
Page 32 of our classroom management book states, “Our goal as teachers should be creating an environment where children want to be and learn” and I could not agree more. I want my classroom to be a place where students’ thoughts and ideas are valued and where all voices are heard, in one way or another. I find the emotional environment of a classroom to be extremely important, especially in younger grades, because it can assist students in creating a positive outlook on school, for that year and for years to
How to explore Phonics at home! Written by Jodie Taylor, FS1 Teacher Parent involvement helps to extend learning outside of the classroom and gives children the ability to put what they learn inside the classroom in to practice. We love getting involved in different phonics activities at school and I’m sure your children would love to practice their developing skills with you at home, showing you what they’ve learnt and progressing their learning with you. Early development of phonics skills is vital in enabling children to progress the skills needed for reading and writing when they move to ‘big school’.

Philosophy of early childhood math education In math education, I want children to have the ‘I CAN’ spirit regardless of any difficulties they might face. My philosophy is represented by the acronyms I, C, A and N. ‘I’ in my philosophy stands for interaction. Interaction is essential because it is through interactions that children learn more; build social skills as well as allowing the teacher to observe if the children need more attention in certain areas. I agree with Vygotsky (as cited in Berk, 2013) that social interaction between children and more knowledgeable adults is necessary for children to acquire understanding and behaviour. Therefore, not only children to children interaction are important, teacher to children interaction is
The children experience the cooperative learning. In cooperative learning through active participation in interactions between the group members, children solve problems while benefiting from the insights of others (Hoffnung et al., 2013). Then the teacher gave them an individual task to complete. Children have the option to choose a worksheet, or an I pad to complete their task. Most schools use technology as an educational tool that helps children to grow their knowledge.

As a result, this would help disabled children to build up independence by allowing them to do things for themselves. Assistive technology can help children by developing communication skills in activities. Desideri(2013) stated that “The Center for Assistive Technology gives direct support to the child, his family and school staff consisting of training the child and his caregivers to use Assistive technology solution”(163). Assistive technology helps disabled children by assisting them with special devices that help them read, write, speak. Also, families and teachers are trained in order to help disabled
