(Love, Dennis 3). The parents with children that do not care about where their child is or what they are doing can display how parent competency can be asserted. To a parent a teenager is still a child and it is hard for the teenager to understand how they are looked downed upon. (Love, Dennis 2). Having a curfew in towns and cities can give parents an opportunity to connect and collaborate with their children.
One way of doing this is by respecting thei... ... middle of paper ... ...eed to take out toys and play with children, but in this class I learned that interaction means going down to a child’s level and talking to them, respect them, and allowing them to lead in their games. I think this is a valuable lesson because I learned to let children explore and learn their toys without me showing them how to do it all the time. Continuing to study education and children psychology will contribute to my future profession because I believe teachers never stop learning and that we need to continue going to school to be able to provide excellent services to children. I think educators need to continue and not stop their studies because children need the best education and guidance. I learned in this class that educators need to be role models for children and their families and that we need to respect their culture to be able to understand them
C1: It's important to plan for children’s care and learning needs because they come first in your planning according to the child's ability and development. To plan and meet the care and learning needs you need to meet learning need. You can do this by observing the child to see what they like and dislikes the you can assess the child progress by looking back on child's observation. “We assess children’s progress by analysing our observations” (http://www.bristol.gov.uk/sites/default/files/assets/documents/childminding-ofsted-effective-practice.pdf) 13/12/2013 7:22pm then finally planning with this you can decide what the next steps for the child to take. Every child is different in their own way and it's important to think about children, you need to think about children as an individual and also the children as a group- you need to think about watch child’s interactions, personalities and their style As practitioner's we need to share information.
It will be my job as a teacher and a parent to teach these children how to think about other people in this world and go from a pre-conventional thought process to a conventional one. As a teacher to make sure that every child might be on a different level cognitively and socially. Children at this age will just be learning about moral reasoning, realizing the world does not revolve around them. I will constantly need to strive to make sure I am pushing children to their Zone of Proximal Development, and if they are not there I need to figure out how to get them there by scaffolding them. Each child will be a unique individual and it will be my goal as a teacher to help them reach their full potential, while making sure they are not being pushed too
As a future teacher I believe that guidance is one of the most important things I will have to teacher. Guidance is built into the curriculum and as a teacher I will constantly be teaching it to children. With guidance my goal is not just simply to stop inappropriate behavior but to encourage appropriate behavior and the development of social competence. I believe that the focus of a teacher should not be telling children what not to do but to teach them what to do. Children are going to make several mistakes along the way but as a teacher it will be my job to stay committed to helping children through the process.
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.
Vygotsky’s Sociocultural theory is one similar to Piaget’s, emphasizing the importance of the child to interact with their environment to learn. While being similar to Piaget, their theories have some core differences. Piaget’s theory put a stronger significance on children learning purely on their own, and having teachers around only to observe. Vygotsky’s theory builds off that, stressing the role that teachers play is quite important. While learning through interaction is crucial, his theory states adult guidance is too.
Whereas when the learning is teacher directed, children are told what to do and are suppose to follow specific instructions. There is very little room for creativity and exploration which is needed for a child to make sense when he is learning about a new concept. The benefits of teacher directed curriculum is that the content of information in the lesson is planned out, therefore children are expected to memorise the concept or facts. Teachers most often to this by giving the children plenty of worksheets or flashcards and constant drilling is done. Such structure is aimed to prepare children for their future in primary
A holistic approach revolves around the child and sees each child as an individual. All children pass through each area of development and learn different things at different stages of growth like crawling, walking, etc. All are linked together and if any one aspect is not achieved then the child will have delays or problem reaching his milestones (Sheridan, 2002). The play should be always initiated by the child otherwise the child will not enjoy their play or get creative. According to the theory of Vygotsky (1999) cognitive development was directly related to play.
Teaching Young Children Through Work and Play We have learned so much recently about the importance of play for young children that many families may overlook how meaningful work can also nurture development. Young children flourish when allowed to enter the world of real work that surrounds them - from picking up toys or feeding the cat to grating carrots for salad. In the company of family or other adults, children eagerly engage in work. They want to 'help' with the pursuits of adults, and this work can be a crucial part of their early learning. If you shield young children from a whole category of activity simply because it is called 'work' and not 'play,' you may be limiting their developmental opportunities.
