Lastly, full-day kindergarten want to help children achieve success in school and in their lives beyond school.

However even simple factors such as giving specific rather than general praise, showing interest in things their child shows interest in and establishing routines that promote health, well being and regular study still do make a difference in the way that children view school and learning and the value they hold to their working relationship with teachers. Parents can help the school and their children develop is supporting homework expectations attending open days and parents evenings. Homework is set by teachers when they feel it necessary to check the understanding of what was taught in the lesson, or to expand their knowledge further. If parents are there to support, help and encourage this to be completed it creates a positive learning environment and teaches organisational and study skills that will stay with the child(ren) for life.

I observed Allie Hagerman’s Pre-Kindergarten classroom in the afternoon at Church Creek Elementary School on September 16, 2105 in Belcamp, Maryland. Observing Allie Hagerman’s classroom was very informational and I learned a lot about the physical environment of the classroom, as well as, how the teacher and para-educator work as a team in the classroom for the 16 children. Besides the physical environment and the team work observed in the classroom, I will share my opinions of the Pre-Kindergarten classroom.
Token economy The token economy was first established in the early 1800’s. The token economy is a classroom management strategy that has been commonly used by teachers as a behavioral intervention plan to manage their classroom (Doll, McLaughlin & Barretto, 2013). In recent years teachers have been encouraged to use strategies that are evidence-based and grounded in research (Maggin, Chafouleas, Goddard & Johnson, 2011). The need to educate large numbers of children and the demand to meaningful education helped to evolve the application of the token economy system and has developed remarkably to systems used in today’s classrooms.

The National Curriculum has applied this to the educational system, using learning through play. (The National Curriculum

This age group can use their new communication skills in order to, “participate in play activities” and “share ideas for play,” (pg. 27). The students’ time in preschool interacting

My project is a program proposal. The purpose of this project is to provide training for elementary school teachers on the topic of teaching kindergarten to 2rd grade students with handwriting difficulties or any student at risk of difficulty with handwriting. This is to fulfill the AOTA’s Centennial Vision to provide scientifically proven methods linking education, research, and practice as a school-based occupational therapist. This project is occupation based, reflects occupational therapist’s role as a scholarly practitioner as well as embraces the Centennial Vision and the Occupational Therapy Practice Framework.
