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.
The more children know about their world, the easier it is for them to read and learn when they get to school. You have an important role to play in helping children learn new information, ideas, and vocabulary and how to use this knowledge to become full participants in their own learning. You can help children to connect new information and ideas to what they already know and understand. As a teacher, you and the children's parents and caregivers are partners in helping to get the children ready for future school success. Good communication with parents and caregivers can build support for and strengthen the important work that you are doing in the classroom.
Learning should be fun and interesting at the same time. When you have the children’s attention they will absorb so much more when they are actively involved in the learning proses. The end product of what the lesson was about will still be the same and as equally as important. We need to give the children every opportunity to learn and grow from the experience of learning. They will learn much more about themselves, their strengths and their weaknesses in
Children are complex thinkers and they need to be prepared and encouraged to play and to think . Early childhood educators should help children to explore their world through play, imitation and exploration. Children should be supported to become thinkers too. Extending their thinking with variety, stimulation, materials and experiences. ( Nutbrown, 2006) Humans are unique in being able to communicate symbolically.
Outcome 1.2 Explain current theoretical approaches to creativity and creative learning in early childhood. Creativity is more about the process rather than the end product. This process is useful for many reasons like develop confidence, good relationships, find out what talents do they have and teaches us about what can we give it to others. Being involved in creative activities is fun and absorbing for children. 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.
A major accomplishment during the early years is the development of social skills. Children learn to interact with each other, and then become part of a social group. Observation of children at play or interacting in classroom centers reveals how social development and behavior are
For those reasons students should create some strategies for overcoming them. In my opinion the most important thing to avoid multitasking is get focus on what is most important and need to be done first. Something really good will be, create a list of the priority so we can tackle each problem by its priority. Taking one task at a same time might be hard but will help us to perform optimally. Those strategies might give us some extra free time and keep us away from hurt ours brain by stress.
This course aims to provide you with a thorough understanding of the fundamental and important role of play in children’s development and learning. By critically analysing contemporary theories, research and practice in relation to early years development and learning you will gain understanding about how to work with families and early years colleagues so that all children feel secure, valued, confident and independent. The first assignment will involve writing a Literature Review on an aspect of child development or a particular issue relating to children’s learning and development. As part of this course you will gain experience working with young children in an early years setting. It is here that you will practise the skill of planning for young children within the learning domains outlined in the EYFS.
Today employers are seeking those who can innovate, communicate, and adapt to change, these are abilities that are learned in the arts (Heilig, 2010). The arts teach children how to communicate, not necessarily through speaking, they also learn how to adapt quickly and quietly to change, as that is a commonality in the arts. An arts education gives students life skills that are not as easily learned in other
The importance of partnership with parents During the course of this essay I will discuss how parents’ involvement in my setting can be reflected into my workshop plan, and how this should include aspects of parental feedback on daily activities. I will also reflect on the how I engage with parents of children under my care as an early year’s practitioner in accordance with Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS, 2012). As an early year’s practitioner, I provide a welcoming and accepting environment for children and their families (DCSF, 2008) where the display of successful communication with parents is essential to further support the development of children. The importance of parental role in their child’s learning was recently highlighted by the department for education (2012a), which stated that ‘informing’, ‘reporting ’ and `discussing’ children’s progress with parents and the next step of their child development is of key importance in a child’s learning process. This point has been supported by evidence derived from numerous publications, which suggest that parents generally know their child the best, and are the main educator in the child’s life (Essa, 2007).
