Reflect and connect: What developmental milestones were observed or demonstrated? physical (2), social (2), emotional (2), cognitive (2), language (2). • Social Milestones o The child enjoys playing with the same aged peers (J.S., T.M.) ("Child Development Screening", p. 7). During the anecdote, J.S. and T.M. both children were working in-group settings.
OT therapists can evaluate kids abilities and help them grow to be developmentally appropriate for their age (Occupational Therapy). They know many ways to help children with their disabilities. They know how to specifically solve the child 's problem in many ways. OT ’s know what tools they need to use to fix the child’s problem to make sure the child will show improvement.
This is very beneficial to children as well as their parents who want the kids to be involved in constructive learning activities. However, it is important to note that the kids are not only involved in fun and games. Exercises, videos, and workbooks are also involved. Nevertheless, this may still be an advantage to children who want a change in routine or those who understand better when they learn in a different way.
This book provides a very thorough, methodical discussion of how young children can develop literacy through play activities within a literacy-rich environment that has been designed with purpose. The role of early childhood teachers, in such an environment, is to discover teachable moments during children’s play and other child-centered experiences and take advantage of those moments to facilitate the children’s literacy development. Chapter One reviews the role of various types of “play” in children’s development and defines the developmentally appropriate practices, which are: understanding children’s patterns of growth to inform knowledge about learning and development; knowing each child’s individual strengths, needs, and interests; and knowing each child’s sociocultural context for living and growing. The different types of play include exploratory play, where play activities are repeated to affirm their mastery of their new abilities; constructive play, where objects are created out of play material; and dramatic play, where children engage in pretend roles using objects, actions, and words.
Providing a rich and varied contexts for children to acquire develop and apply a broad range of knowledge, understanding and skills. The curriculum should enable pupils to think creatively and critically to solve problems and to make a difference for the better. It should allow the children the opportunity to become creative, innovative, enterprising and capable of leadership to equip them for their future lives as workers and citizens. It should enable children to respond positively to opportunities, challenges and responsibilities to make changes and to cope with change and adversity (QCA 1999:11-12).
Key Stakeholders Children are key stakeholders in the Head Start Program. The Head Start program helps children in several ways. For example, children learn their basics in education; children also learn socialization skills by interacting with other children within his/her own age group (Castro, Bryant, Peisner-Feinberg & Skinner, 2004). The Head Start Program fosters a set of values to support the overall goal of improving social competence within the family unit and its environment. Single parents are also key stakeholders in the Head Start Program, because they utilize the program to meet child care needs and their children’s educational needs.
As the author states, children who are reared using concerted cultivation develop dispositions and skills that help them to navigate the institutional world. Being involved in these extracurricular activities allows children to obtain certain skills, set priorities, work on a team, shake hands with strangers and manage an itinerary. (Lareau, 2011)The advantages of concerted cultivation and the way Garrett 's life is organized seems to lead to a positive
Reading through Behaviour Therapy, I came across techniques and therapies which I have used at work. Working as a Behaviour Interventionist, I am trained to teach autistic children with ABA (Applied Behaviour Analysis) therapy. I completely agree with the effectiveness of token programmes, time out procedure, and self-reinforcement. These techniques are recommended by behaviour therapists and consultants through applied settings to teach and appreciate positive behaviour. I often notice children trying to seek attention or desired reinforcer through challenging behaviour such as screaming, throwing things or hitting, if parent gives in to their demand it models to the children that they could use this as their way out.
Anecdotal notes are pieces of information collected during interactions and observation of young children, or even adults. An example of anecdotal notes are written notes and video. Some advantages of anecdotal according to Chance is that "it is vital information to to effectively plan for individual children in the classroom" (Chance, 2012, para. 3). Anecdotal notes also educators to look back at what they wrote, saw, or heard to form a opinion later on. Observation of Angel: Angel is a little boy most likely around the age of three.
Child-Directed play is important because it allows children to find practice necessary skills like overcoming obstacles, problem-solving, effectively communicating feelings, and working with others who may have different ideas and points of view. It also encourages development of children 's skills such as cognitive, emotional, social and physical. It is a necessary part of every child 's life. In experiments conducted by Webster-Stratton & Reid, the difference between child-directed play and adult-directed play are shown. In the experiment, a five-year-old boy, Dylan who had shown aggressive behavior towards people and threw tantrums, was asked to participate in child-led play with his parents.
Developmentally Appropriate Practices (DAP) is important to understand prior to implementing creative activities in your classroom because from the reading I liked a few points on how young children develop and learn and what is known about effective early education. First, knowing what is expected at each stage of a young child 's development is important, and it informs decisions about the best practices. Another key factor is knowing exactly what is appropriate for each individual child. Watching children play can give important insight to their progress and ability.
To be developmentally appropriate, teaching practices must be successful, especially in producing a favorable impression on children—they must promote to children’s ongoing development and learning. Children who are interested and engaged in the classroom activities and lessons learn more. By stimulating active interest and engagement, I guarantee that children will get the most out of the instructional opportunities demonstrated in the classroom. I present information using a variety of learning formats, including large and small groups, choice time (in interest areas), and routines. Routines such as eating snacks and transitioning from one activity to another are all possibly valuable learning situations if teachers use these activities as chances for one-on-one conversations with children or to support a learning objective through singing a song or reciting a rhyme.
1. If you were directing a theater production of The Wizard of Oz, how would you handle the scene with the tornado (starting at time code 15:09)? Would you include a "tornado" in your production? If so, how would you create the impression of a tornado? The way that i would create the impression of the tornado would be adding in a scene where the wind is calm at first but more in time the wind will begin to pick up.
The tone of the group leader was calming and encouraging; his voice felt reassuring and affirming that ultimately empowering by simply sharing his stories. The open format felt genuine in nature and the group appeared cohesive. Reoccurring themes for most speakers were difficulties in identifying their feelings, perceive themselves as completely unselfish and dedicated to the well-being of others. Listening to others sharing their struggles, I began to access my life and codependent tendency that I may exhibit.
