Denisse M. Villalobos-Vega Professor Mark Schwartz English 101 5 December 2014 Toys Today and the Effect they have on Children As children grow up they learn new things along the way like how to crawl, walk, speak, communicate, express themselves in different ways, and resolve problems. Children learn these things through many ways, but playing is one of the important methods for developing. Playing covers a great part of a child’s development process. Also, it incites the child to learn because it is a fun and entertaining way of learning. In addition there are props such as toys that children can play with and manipulate.
In early childhood children have an abundance of energy that they have a hard time controlling. In this stage children run instead of walking. They jump and skip showing the exuberant amount of energy that they have. During early childhood gross and fine motor skills are starting to become refined. A child’s hand eye coordination improves and they develop the ability to do tasks such as jump rope, hit a ball and use things such as pencils and crayons with better control.
Mental representation enables children to rely on memory, perception and repetition in order to solve problems. Through mental representation children associate symbols and objects with other forms of information that is related. Toddlers are interested in playing “make believe”, often imitating others or imagining they are somewhere else using associations with objects or symbols. Piaget’s believes that children develop in a stage like process, others believe developmental flows. There are some infants that are capable in surpassing stages well before Piaget’s
They are also able to control their movement. They will start to climb, on furniture and might even venture to the stairs. They will also be able to point and hold small objects which enables them to play with toys, and start to hold small food samples which will let them experiment in feeding themselves. As they move into their 3rd year they will be more adventurous and start to walk and run around. They will be
It helps children to have positive experiences and develop important abilities like Collaboration- being happy to work together Concentration- focusing on what they are doing Communication and language- developing good communication through talking, listening and writing Developing good relationships- working together and making new friends Imagination- bringing ideas to life Physical activity- participating in activities that encourage movement Problem solving- being able to explore different solutions Outcome 1.3 Critically analyse how creativity and creative learning can support young children’s emotional, social, intellectual, communication and physical development. The key characteristics in creativity can support children’s development in a different ways. Emotionally they learn how to manage anger if they
The arts give children a new view of life, by developing those essential thinking tools the arts teach children how to think outside of the box. Children who learn a musical instrument, develop new motor skills and the ability to discern different tone patterns that “cause profound and
First impressions are important for parents and carers as well as the children and young people. As a playworker, you will need to develop a range of techniques and strategies for interacting with children and young people. Whatever techniques you use, you must ensure that the activities are appropriate for the age and stage of development of the children and young people. Each child and young person is very different and may need to be treated individually, sometimes one-to-one, for example if you have a shy child you may guide them towards a one-to-one activity. You may need to monitor the noise levels in that particular area, and you should observe occasionally throughout the session to ensure that the child is settling in.
P1 Give reasons why play is important for children and young people “‘We think that a purpose of the child is to grow up because it does grow up. But its purpose is to play, to enjoy itself, to be a child.’ Herzen A. cited in Young Children Learning, David, T.” (Page 25, 40231D, CACHE Level 2 Certificate in Children’s Care, Learning and Development) Play holds a great importance in a child’s life. Through play a child learns lots of different things from a very early age. Every time they play they learn something new in life, be it educational or social while having fun. They learn to explore and take risks in their life.
The answer is the Kinesthetic Learner. Kinesthetic learning is a type of learning style which is carried out by using physical activity. For a Kinesthetic learner it could be difficult to learn different learning styles. The more physical action performed in a skill the more the student obtain knowledge. There are learning strategies to assist a kinesthetic learner such as action-based classes, harmonious teachers, and regular breaks to aid students in learning to the best of their ability.
The EYFS supports learning in 6 areas the first is Personal, Social and Emotional Development where they concentrate on helping develop their self confidence, self-esteem, behaviour, self care, attitudes and making relationships. The next stage is Communication, Language and Literacy; this supports a child's learning by helping develop a child’s communication, thinking, reading, writing and linking sounds to letters. Another is Problem solving, reasoning and numeracy, this helps children’s learning because numbers, counting and calculating is another term for numeracy. There is also Knowledge and Understanding of the world which covers exploration, investigation, communities, Time, places, designing and making skills, this supports learning in science. Physical development is another framework where it teachers movement, space, Health and bodily awareness, using equipment and materials.
