...steps of washing hands through an image visual and hand motions. I plan to talk about germs and how they spread. I will then do art crafts that relate to the theme of hand washing. Those are some ways I will put forth my effort to instruct my kids about hand rinsing, while meeting the requirements of NAEYC standard four.
During observations, a few questions came to mind. For starters, I want to know if a childcare can lose its star ratings for not making the children wash their hands as much as they are supposed to? I desire to know if, the four steps of hand washing are being enforced as frequently in school districts as it should? I would like to know, does washing hands properly fully eliminate the spread of germs. Lastly, I want to explore more ideas on how to teach proper hand washing techniques. When I was observing, curiosity of questions formed in my brain.

- Two helpful courses of action schools can take are establishing programs that can support teachers and support the families of students. Duncan and Murnane talk about how supporting the teachers and family members of a student can actually in turn benefit the student. Money doesn’t necessarily correlate with student success. It is shown that when money is used to improve teaching or provide additional valuable experiences for students, that money leads to student success. If Michael’s school established or partnered with other agencies to help and support teachers, the teachers would improve at their job and as a result, students would be more successful....

- Formal Education and the Author on Scout’s Teachers Miss Caroline and Miss Gates, both teachers but, something is wrong. Why would Miss Caroline deny Atticus’s teaching of reading to Scout. When she can just accept the fact that not all children are educated the same. At times you have kids that are homeschooled or kids that go to public school. Why not a child that does both. Shouldn’t that encourage the teacher to encourage the students to do the same to have higher understanding of education at their age.... [tags: Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird]

Rather than looking into all of the different types of schooling, parents often assume public school is the only option because it is the biggest branch of childhood education. Society has people convinced that the school house is the only proper place to learn, but this idea is not actually true because children vary in so many ways. Their bodies, minds, emotions and spirits combine to make unique individuals, and this mix affects the kind of environment in which each child learns best....

- When children grow up, parents encourage their children with love and support. Their kids work hard on their work at school and managed to turn in homework on time. It seems that they know how to manage their time between social, school, and volunteering/job life. For me, it is totally opposite from the other children. While I grew up as an only child in the family, I struggled to speak during preschool and kindergarten but I was an active student. When I entered first grade, I had a lot of problems with my speech.... [tags: High school, College, Teacher, School]

- Each and every daycare has their own menu for the children’s breakfast and lunch. Through my observations, I have noticed that the “Don’t Worry Childcare” has a variety of food selections throughout the month. For example, the children could either choose from fruit loops cereal, or frosted flakes for breakfast. The children’s snacks eaten varies every day as well. For instance, the children ate milk and cookies one day, and cheese crackers another day. An example of lunch would be, milk, chicken fingers, French fries, green beans, and mixed fruit one day, and spaghetti, corn, peaches, and bread another day....

Some believe that the public school system today has taken a turn for the worst in the past years. Students have more than just tests and quizzes to worry about. They are faced with violence, drugs, sex and pregnancy, and state mandated tests that will tell whether they will pass to the next grade. The public school classroom today has more children which takes away the personal attention to each individual student.... [tags: Education, peer pressure]
