The Head Start and Reggio Emilia approaches have respect for teacher, children, families, and community through school and home. They have the children become active learning with parent as partner, observe, learner, and support from their children’s learning.

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’. This post aims to give you the knowledge and ideas needed to have fun with phonics at home.
In a child’s early years it is important that the early years setting mirrors the child’s home and home routine in order to make the child feel comfortable and safe. Through having regular discussions with the parent the parent can be informed on where the child is and should be in their development. According to early years careers  “If they see their parents are talking to
Students who are allowed to explore, empathize, question, hypothesize, conceptualize, experiment, and evaluate throughout their own learning become productive community members" (Hummell 5). Allowing children to learn to think critically helps them to solve problems and have a logical argument about something they believe is true. Applying critical thinking into schools gives a child a chance to make a difference. Also, Elizabeth McKinstry agrees with Hummell in challenging the next generation to think for themselves. McKinstry writes about how Common Core education helps children become more interactive in the world and teaches them how to apply the knowledge they have learned in life.
My role as a Teaching assistants is to support teachers and help children with their educational and social development in and out of the the classroom.

My role means I have to work closely with teachers to make sure pupils enjoy learning in a safe and caring setting, having excellent interpersonal skills is paramount to the job as I will have to communicate effectively with teachers, pupils and parents.

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).
For these students, I will try and learn as much as I can about their home lives as I can. The more I know about their home lives, the more I will be able to understand and help the student. I also want to make these students feel comfortable in my classroom, many times Kimberly felt uncomfortable or felt as though she didn’t belong because she was different. In my classroom, I will do my best to help make students feel comfortable and feel like they belong in my classroom. To help make students feel comfortable, I might have a unit on cultures.
I feel very good for this observation because I see how the teacher works with the child and something that I can do in the future with the child. For next observation, I want to see a child in a daycare center because I can get more experience for bigger children between 24-36 months. Also, the child between 24-36 months that will have a lot of things to talk and action. When I teach children in the future I know how to handle it. I can see what active that the teacher teach and how they do to the child.
Others in the group are exposed to these behaviors, and this often inspires and provoke and promote change in others in the group. According to M.U.S.E. (2018) it is mainly a support technique. Three objectives and goals for family therapy is to allow each person to have a say about the situation honestly. Family unit can discuss what is bothering them to help them understand the roles of each person in the home and identity how everybody can work through the dysfunction together to have a healthy functioning home.
Various teaching strategies such as cooperative learning, active learning, role play and games and pedagogic tools are being integrated in educational theories in meaningful and useful ways to encourage task or learning achievements.

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.
We will focus on working together, respecting others, and being responsible for our actions. This will also help with their problem solving skills, we will do this through partner work as well. Giving two children a task such as separating objects or a large floor puzzle will allow the children to work together. The curriculum will have an equal focus on family, safety, and support. Many lessons can be taught using examples of children’s families, life style, and individual selves.

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.
I find that preparing some items that the students will use in the lesson beforehand makes lessons flow better. In addition, preparing some lesson items alleviates stressors that both the teacher and the student may feel while learning in the classroom environment. Ms. Zavada believes that the students should do most of the preparation that is included in the lesson, since it teaches practical skills. I also believe that students should learn practical skills. Yet, both my lesson objectives and teaching philosophies may impact how I use preparation in my
