Lev Vygotsky’s theory was based on social/emotional development needs to show demonstration/imagination to allow a child to progress. His belief was based on the kinaesthetic technique as he believed that when children observe someone that is more advanced than them they learn from them and imitate their actions. Lev Vygotsky“...suggested that this silent inner speech and spoken social speech are connected...” (Meggitt et al, 2012. P.80). It is critical to link his theory to practice as it encourages/allows children to communicate with other children using their social skills which they have developed and allows children to build self-confidence.
Lauren Fowler Pin: 30199220 OP2.17 1.1. Describe why creative development is important to children’s learning. Creative development is important to children’s development and learning because it helps your child to use their mind and imagination to express their own ideas. Even playing with their friends is also helping your child to understand that all family’s and cultures can be different. It also helps your child to make connections in their thinking and the way in which problem are solved.
This process involves learning and mastering skills like sitting, walking, talking, skipping, and tying shoes, as well as some social and intellectual abilities. The responsibility for the successful development of a child rests first and foremost with the parents and teachers. But the fact is that they could bring up a child who will be able to read and write perfectly, who will have excellent marks at school, but at the same time who will be absolutely unhappy. First of all, the happiness and well-being of the child depends on a degree of love, affectionate and approval parents give him. Child should feel that he is loved and needed, that life is full of bright and positive moments and emotions.
It can be affective in delivering explicit instruction in learning. The effectiveness of the Total Physical Response has been shown by the experts in some countries and has given significant improvement of students’ achievement in learning English especially vocabulary in language target. As children are physically active by nature, Total Physical Response will make language learning especially vocabulary more effective because children feel fun during the learning. This methods of instruction injects the lesson with both physical activity and fun as the students playact their roles and respond to both simple yes/no questions and more complex questions about who, where, when, etc. By having a good skills in presenting the lessons in any kinds of models teacher is encouraged to develop knowledge and stimulate children’s to learn.
Actually, each point of view has some strong reasons to support its position. People who believe that sending children to school at a very early age is good think it allows them to learn that studying is an important thing in life, an important part of developing the personality. Due to early studying children can grow up more independent with the understanding that their lives depend only on themselves. Also, children who begin their formal education at a very early age and spend most of their time at school will are more sociable. From a very early age they learn how to communicate and behave in society in a proper way.
Yes because people change (or should for the better) as they enter maturity. With maturity come wisdom, building of character, knowledge and understanding which changes the way we think and learn particularly if an emotion becomes a part of the new learning style. Do I think a person’s learning style is influenced by the parent/guardian that child was around the most while growing up? Yes I believe this is true because children live what they learn especially during childhood which is such an impressionable time. Children develop what is around them by listening to their parents/guardian and seeing what they
Teuila Seumanutafa TASK ONE: Explain the value of play and exploration. The purpose of this task is to explain the value of children’s play and exploration. In doing this it helps us define what we think the value of children’s play is, and what others think the value of play is. “Just by watching young children it is easy to see that play is often stimulation and rewarding, and that they get a great deal of emotional satisfaction from playing” (Sheidan, 1999). As a mother and teacher I have always been fascinated with how children learn.
Role of the adult According to the work of Riley (2007), a crucial factor in the quality of children’s education is the role the supporting adults provide. The role of the adult or practioner is to ensure that the setting and all of its employers maintain the challenge of the EYFS curriculum and uphold the concept that it’s not what a child learns that is most important but how the child leans it. A child initiated focus is fundamental to this philosophy; the practitioners must develop a supportive learning environment so that all children feel empowered to offer their own suggestions about how they want to learn. The observer noted how the practioner demonstrated how the uses of role play areas and then herself observed the children to see their development. Through the following child initiated play, the pupils demonstrate sustained shared thinking, collaboration and teamwork.
And second language is not an exception. One of the biggest keys to teaching child target language is to spend time talking with him. “Adults help children learn language primarily by talking with them,” says Bruce D. Perry, PhD. Every conversation matters, and children pick up words and sentences structure from the language they hear from the people around them. Personally, I believe that having conversations with children is important.
For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction”. Therefore as teacher it is imperative the not only seek to broaden the minds of the learners’ but to also expose them to real world scenarios. There are many different theorists that speak about a child’s growth and development, for example Jean Piaget, Sigmund Freud, Erick Erickson and many more. Jean Piaget’s view of how children's minds work and develop has been enormously influential, particularly in educational theory. His particular insight was the role of maturation (simply growing up) in children's increasing capacity to understand their world: they cannot undertake certain tasks until they are psychologically mature enough to do so.
