Based in the NAEYC standers: Reggio Emilia approach supports a Child Approach in that a child’s image is viewed as having rights and not just needs, child has been viewed as beautiful, competent, powerful, curious, creative as well as full of ambitious desires and potentials, supports children’s individual differences and needs, documentation that Reggio teachers collect about their students, and mix of long- and short term projects which provide students with a deeper understanding of the subject matter. While in Montessori standers include mission and vision: The school’s vision is consistent with the Montessori philosophy of facilitating the student’s development of full potential, governance, leadership, and continuous, improvement:
Behaviour has a significant impact on current and later success for children and young people, in terms of their social skill development, education and employment. 1 Understand principles of supporting the development of positive behaviour in children Before children go to school, they learn essential skills in the best way: through play, interaction, and discussion. Nursery plays a key role in facilitating opportunities for learning and development. To develop reasoning and problem solving (i.e. cognitive skills), make use of activities, structured and free play, and games that encourage curiosity.
In addition, she expressed that the songs were appealing for preschoolers since in that age, they learn in an auditory way. Murphey (1992) implies that the implementation of songs enhance children's motivation as they provide excitement to the lessons as well as facilitating the process of taking the new language acquired form a short-term memory to a long one. Likewise, Sharpe (2001), states that songs are a tool to provide children with opportunities for real language use in fun and enjoyable way. She claims that young children imitate sounds and associate singing and playing with rhythms and rhymes from an early age. Additionally, Arias et al.
It promotes the right for all children to live in an inclusive society and points to the benefits they stand to gain and is also very welcoming. Here we can build relationships with the children, we can encourage them to form a connection with other children and gently bring the child into a group as we do for all children. Here we can offer strengths to children with Down syndrome through aspects like visual learning, most children with Down syndrome will learn better through demonstration rather than learning through more verbal learning. If Information is presented visually together with verbal input, the child has a better chance of picking up the Information and learning from it, other ways for a child to learn is making learning fun and keeping it simple and really integrating the child with Down syndrome into Pre-school
Practitioners ensure they understand and observe each child’s development and learning, assess, progress and plan for next steps, ensure children are safe and involve parents and families equally. This goes onto link into another one of Froebel’s beliefs that children were linked by both community and relationships, the second theme to be underpinned by the EYFS is positive relationships as this allows children to be strong and independent. Practitioners ensure there is a nurturing and emotionally supported environment, they are sensitive
Critical reflection on two approaches – Reggio Emilia Approach and Forest School Approach Reggio Emilia Approach Reggio Emilia Approach is an educational philosophy which considers children as capable, innovative and curious learners with intrinsic motivations in learning about the unknowns surrounding them (Mitchell and Carroll, 2003). It aimed to promote children’s learning through the development of “the hundred languages” of children (Edwards, Gandini and Forma, 2012). Features Learning spaces, social exchanges, projects, art materials, documentation and collaborative teaching style are the core values of the Approach (Mitchell and Carroll, 2003). In this approach, spaces involved in students’ daily lives were considered as extensions of classrooms where learning takes place in (Mitchell and Carroll, 2003). Social exchanges such as interactive activities, conflicts and communications were encouraged (Gandini, 1993).
Why Is role play so effective? Role play is an effective learning tool as it encourages children to become active participants in their learning. They can move about, put themselves in someone else’s shoes, perhaps wear a costume and use props, communicate and make decisions in character, which will allow them to take risks and explore different areas. Learning from role play is therefore far more likely to stick with children than for example doing exercise sheets, mostly because they will be much more willing and enthusiastic! As a teacher, it is a great sign if you see the children you teach in the playground acting out what they have just learnt.
Using tactile signals are an vital communication strategy to deal with young children but few important points have to be taken care that tactile models are useful only if the child can recognize what they represent, use of touch cues should be consistent for each separate practice, denotation of the touch model should not vary as the changes of the deciphere. 4. Students become enthusiastic by getting some positive feedback such as great job, nice performance, absolutely right etc. It is more effective if it would be given individually. 5.
Let your baby’s enjoy playing with you and off course they gain knowledge. Every step of the way, you will able to see their ability and potentials do be improve and develop. It also trains the children on hand and eye coordination and helps hand muscles development. And inspire children’s logical thinking and spatial concepts. Can built toys of babies such as figure of a person, flower and a rotating wheel.
The idea that a new generation of students is entering the education system has excited recent attention among educators and education commentators. ICT can support the learning of children with special educational needs [SEN]. It enables children with special education needs to overcome obstacles to learning by providing different methods of communicating within the learning development. ICT helps teachers to create a supportive framework, which can enable children with self-directed learning. And make students think more creatively and meaningfully .ICT can enrich and enhance the thinking of the students and also helps teachers in teaching, motivating learners and engaging them in active learning.
