NAEYC stated, “Children can work on puzzles themselves, without the help of adults or other children. They can also work together on large puzzles and practice compromising and getting along.” Teachers are only there to guide the children. At the Manipulatives Center, they usually get the puzzles and they’re really enjoying it a lot. Also, doing a puzzle with their classmate allows for the growth of social skills as they work together and communicate about what fits where. The act of manipulating each piece helps the children to solve a problem and to develop critical thinking.
ARTICLE I Digital Language Experience Approach: Using Digital Photographs and Software as a Language Experience Approach Innovation By: Linda D. Labbo A. Jonathan Eakle M. Kristiina Montero Abstract A case study exploration reveals that young children of different ability levels have unique occasions for literacy learning when a Language Experience Approach is enhanced with digital photography and creativity software. A framework for a Digital Language Experience Approach and implications for classroom practice are included. Stepping Into the Classroom: A Vignette It is midafternoon in Ms. Maggie’s kindergarten classroom, a time of day when small groups of children are usually at work in the computer center.

When Ashley’s Nana was drumming on the toy drum Ashley imitated her and drummed back after her. Mom placed the plush lady bug underneath the toy drum and Ashley went over and pulled the drum up to retrieve the plush lady bug, this is an example of object permanence. When Ashley was walking around the living room with the spoon in her hand she was trying to pick up the cheerio on the red plate with the spoon. Her mom placed a plastic to-go Chef Boyardee soup on the floor, Ashley had associated the soup with the spoon and she was tapping the spoon on the lid and trying to open the soup. Ashley was forming sounds to try and communicate with her mother and nana.

Monroe is very interested in his mother’s reaction to him. She continues to watch him even when he is interested in a toy or moving away from her. He does check to see if she is paying attention to him as he plays. His mother starts picking up toys and organizing the room and he periodically goes over to her and becomes interested in what she is doing. Monroe seems very dependent on his mother’s mood.

It was explained to the children that adverbs provided information about ‘how, where and when’ an action occurred and examples were given such as ‘I ran noisily into the classroom’, ‘The girl walked slowly into lunch.’ The children were encouraged to think of their own examples of adverbs and to share these with the class. The teacher then involved the class in some role play, asking the children to pretend to peel a banana using adverbs to describe their actions. Lots of fun was had as the children were encouraged to share their adverbs with the rest of the class, who were then asked to act out the peeling of the banana using the examples given. These included ‘slowly, quickly, happily, grumpily and crossly’. Each table was then given a piece of paper with a ‘sound setting’ written on it, e.g.
