Customized Learning Theory Angelique Young Liberty University Introduction There are many ideas and theories on what makes the best learning environment. Things to consider are teacher-student relationships, teacher-parent relationships, parent-student relationships and lastly, student-self relationships. Each relationship creates an environment that is intertwined with the other to create the best learning environment for the student. When one or more of these relationships fracture, the environment for the student is, at best retarded, if not crippled. By understanding the dynamic of these relationships, a teacher understands the development and learning of students and seeks opportunities to positively support not only their intellectual development, but also social and personal as well.
Showing children’s work to others is important for children’s self-esteem so they can see what they have achieved and it also can improve children’s motivation in the future. The actual environment has a large impact on a child’s learning. Children, who feel more engaged in their classrooms, will most likely be more receptive. It can encourage children to interact more with their environment. Teachers should praise effort as well as perfect work.
By doing this you are creating a good example for pupils who will therefore learn from you on how to communicate positively with others. When communicating successfully with parents and staff you are then more likely to work as a team to ensure that pupils will be able to gain maximum benefit from learning, which is the ultimate goal as a teaching assistant. 1.2) Explain the principles of relationship building with children, young people and adults.

This helped prepare me for making lesson plans and taking on many other responsibilities of a teacher. In this class I taught young children ages 3-5. Also, I created a resume, wrote letters to parents, made a photo-story for the children, pretended to own a daycare by setting budgets, cleaned and sanitized our classroom everyday, and made power-points on safety, health, etc. I very much enjoyed the class and it helped guide me with my career path. Being a teacher carries a lot of respect, responsibility, and perks.
Communicating with a parent you need to be very direct, professional, friendly, address them how they like to be addressed and also remember the name of their child. The different skills required by practitioners: • Being an effective member of a team is important so we can all work together to support the children’s needs and development and to get along with each other to create a positive environment for the young children. This can produce a result where children are happy and feel safe in there school and feel confident to talk to their teachers. • Always be prepared to listen to whatever the young children want to speak to you about, maybe something they did with their friends or a more serious important issue they might say, always be prepared to listen, never walk away from a child communicating with you. • Polite manners is a good skill to have because children pick up on anything you might say and repeat it and learn it if it’s an unkind gesture or not saying please and thank you.

The constructivist approach to early childhood education offers children the opportunity to construct knowledge through daily experiences and encounters with parents, teachers, peers, events, and objects in the world. Children develop theories, negotiate learning, and merge thoughts together, thereby building knowledge and understanding. It is the right of all children to be part of a school community that respects them as competent individuals who are viewed as contributors to the process of learning. The educators of Reggio Emilia show us the possibilities of what can happen when we trust and respect the capabilities of children. We believe that the Reggio Approach is successful because of its powerful image and deep respect for the culture of childhood, and for its strong belief that children, teachers, and parents all work together in the process of building knowledge.
By the end of my first school year I was well trained on any and everything that needed to be done in a classroom. I also learned that you can excessive borrow and more borrow from other teachers ideas to help you in your classroom. The classroom setting of early head start children can take a little getting used to but in my opinion if you are a parent It won’t take long. In my case it actually felt like home and knowing that I was able to help and guide a child in their social and emotional growth as well as a path of learning.

Effective communication is fundamental in developing positive relationships with children, young people and adults alike. In the role of Classroom Assistant it is vital to develop good, appropriate relationships with pupils, colleagues, parents and any other professional third party agencies involved in a child’s care and education.

This will avoid confusion and inconsistency during lessons. For example I find it essential to discuss the day’s lesson plan and targets with my class teacher.
