Communication begins to take on a more mature rhythm at 11 months. Babies at this age can engage in a regular back-and-forth conversation. The elder children in our daycare started their morning circle time around 9:30am while Lukas just finished his first formula bottle and he was crawling around the room and exploring new toys. Lukas was very happy and active in the playroom. He can sit up without support and pull himself up around the train table.
Samuel Gallagher is a 16 month old male child from New Prague, Minnesota. He is in overall good physical health and is of average stature. Sam lives at home with his nuclear family consisting of his father and mother. Sam’s father works full time and his mother works part time, therefore he does spend approximately 10 hours per week with an alternate care giver. This interview was conducted with Sam’s mother present, in various areas of Sam’s home as to accommodate testing and observations.

Child study project Alfredo Sanchez Psych 150 Professor Dugan January 22, 2014 Introduction I had the pleasure today of observing a young 5-year old Hispanic boy at his home. The child seems to have a tight-knit family, with both parents taking an active part in the child's daily life. The child has an older and younger brother, ages 8 and 4, making him the middle child of the family. The boy lives with both parents, but spends more time with his mother than her father. I thought it would be of best interest, in this case, to interview the mother and ask her few questions about their lifestyle with the boy, what his particular strengths and weaknesses are and various milestones the boy was able to reach throughout the course
Observation of Early Childhood PSY 2237 Online Developmental Lifespan April 1st, 2014 Introduction This observation case study took place at Timber Ridge Lodge in Lake Geneva Wisconsin. This is a children’s waterpark and hotel. I am observing a 6 year old boy, and his interaction with mother inside of the waterpark. When I entered the waterpark I sat at a table with a large group of people from our church. I did not initially interact with the child or mother.
The observation took place at Children’s Learning World in Niles, IL on Monday, August 29th 2011 at 10:05 in the morning. I was observing a group of 15 children, ages 3 to 6 years old during the open work time. Children were playing in different classroom areas. Children’s interests, type of play they were involved in: Children were divided into small groups and involved in different types of activities. One group was painting and coloring; second group was playing with instruments and singing; third group of children was playing with manipulatives; fourth group was building with blocks; a girl was doing puzzles; one boy was reading a book; two children were eating apples and two more children were waiting for their turn to eat apples, they were sitting in “waiting chairs”.
Perseverance, an understatement of a word that could delineate not only my life, but to an 8 year old boy who emigrated from Columbia 3 years ago. Rewind 3 years, and you’ll catch two kids, sitting in the back of a library, with a pile of 1st-grader reading-level books surrounding them at a study table. Teaching a boy to read fresh to America is a tough task, and with the pressure of semester finals, soccer, and keeping your parents satisfied with your clean room or straight A grades, meeting every other day for a couple hours to teach a little boy to read who could only read in Spanish and spoke little English is tiresome to a 13 year old girl. My anal attitude towards details and stressing the vowels or explaining why there are 26 letters in the alphabet, yet there can be up to 44 different letter sounds, life could get exhausting and at times ‘giving up’ just seems right for the both of us.
The second storytime presentation I attended was at the Taft Branch Library. This presentation was held at 7:00 p.m. in the Salter room. The children were around 2 to 6 years in age they all wore their pajamas, and they each brought a blanket and a favorite stuff animal for storytime.
