If you think the education system will do it all, think again. The parents of today need to be prepared, motivated, and of course, confident to help their children succeed. How do we prepare our children? First off, reading, reading, and more reading to children at an early age can give them a head start when they start school. Parents should not stop reading or helping their children when they do start going to school.
I believe as teachers it is important that we incorperate play into our learning. Children are forced to grow up so fast once they enter into school. I believe that preschool should be a time of fun and learning and what better way to combine those two things than threw play.
Also they stay away from their parents and grandparents who care them a lot and get it back from the caregivers at the play school. This change lets them to meet and communicate with a new world by learning different social skills. 2. It prepares children for schooling Here in Pre schools, your child will be introduced with the basis for learning that will take place in elementary schools. Understanding and changing the mind-set of kids for academics done here carefully and the progress of their cognitive, emotional, and physical abilities also monitored.
If this is accomplished there will automatically be a connection between literacy and experience, which is very beneficial to the learning process. Most importantly in the early childhood literacy curriculum that we apply the focus should always be on the child’s learning and not on the teaching. (6) Since a large portion of learning to become literate occurs prior to formal education parents need to be aware of what they can do before their children reach school age.
In addition to that, children are not accustomed to physical activity outside of school, so therefore, how are they supposed to stay healthy? With these two counterarguments towards the dismissal of recess, why do elementary schools still refuse to have recess? Because it is proven to help children focus on schoolwork and prevent obesity, all elementary schools should have recess. SOLUTION Putting recess back into elementary schools is simple; adding a mere thirty minutes to Hackman 2 the school day. Children at this age need no more than a half hour of play time during school, otherwise they will tire themselves to the point of fatigue.
Is like Dr. Seuss said “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn the more places you'll go.” Education opens new doors and without it we can’t understand each other and will not be able to advance in our society. I love being an elementary school teacher because that’s where the basic fundamentals of academic education happen. Reading and writing are essential pillars of a successful student and I’ve always know I wanted to be part of that success. I want to be help shape the youth of tomorrow by inculcating in them a love for learning from an early age, that will continue until they have achieve their academic, professional and personal goals.
After reading the article, I found several points that I did agree with. One problem they talked about was our school systems and how they are cutting out time for kids to be creative while in school. To me it seems our school systems have lost their ways and are more focused on teaching us the core curriculum. We need to have time to allow our kids to express themselves in art class, extracurricular activities, and to just be children. I would agree with them that art needs to be placed in homeroom, so kids can express their ideas every day of the week and not just on days they have art class.
Early childhood education such as preschool and kindergarten is a school where young students go to start their education as early as two. Some children skip preschool and go right to kindergarten. Some parents believe that it is better for their child to stay home longer with someone taking care of them one-on-one instead them taking care of a class of twenty. “Across countries, early childhood education providers differ tremendously” (Nores and Barnett). Obviously, a child learns even before they are in the education system and their skills develop rapidly (Magnuson and Shager).
Preschool allows children to mix learning with fun, and prepares them to move on to higher levels with more knowledge than those who do not read and do not attend preschool. (paragraph on family nurturing) Children need preschool in its most basic essence: to define motor skills, achieve basic socialization skills, and to learn the alphanumeric system that will undoubtedly help improve their understanding in the grades to come, allowing for the advances in education that America desires and certainly needs. Making preschool mandatory as part of the education reforms that America so desperately requires will combat the lack of educational programming that exists and allow children to receive education at a younger age than they would have in a home where education is not a main family focus.
You need to become a leader when you’re working with a room full of young students. I feel that I can fulfill this role. I’ve worked with young children before, and if you set out rules beforehand, you have better results. I will definitely take what I’ve learned and use it in my classroom. Education reform is necessary in our ever changing world.
