Attaining Physical Development on Early Childhood Student

339 Words2 Pages
Introduction From the moment we were born, our parents dreamt something for us to be in the future, hence, they planned to give and expose us into things that could help us to achieve the dreams they’ve been or we’ve been dreaming of. We often set goals- both the long term and short term- in order to encourage us to pursue and motivate ourselves to finish the task. If achieved, we feel great and competent on the task. The same in education, teachers dream great things for their students but the question is HOW? As far as the Early Childhood Education is concern, teachers must consider their students’ capabilities at their (students) certain age. We call the abilities expected of a child to perform as Developmental Milestones/ Expectancies. If a child is not occupied with his expected abilities at his present age, it would be hard for a child to proceed to the following levels and difficulty as s/he grows. But if well exposed and provided, it’ll be no burden to a child to perform, learn and adapt using his/her achieved expectancies into any situations. Each expectancy on every area of development may affect the other areas but not necessarily all. Through the case study “Kindergartener: Attaining of Physical Milestones in a Kindergarten Class of Kiddies Learning Center”, we’ll be able to know if a child- specifically a kindergarten student regardless of gender having below the average height and weight of a 5 years old girl which is 40 inches and 39.6 lbs- would execute the physical developmental milestones expected at his/her age inside the classroom with or without teacher’s instruction. The case study may show how effective the instruction is of a teacher with accordance to the attainment of his/her students’ developmental milestone and so did the peers affect the respondent.
