Everything that is done at home, by the parents, can be taken to school and used to promote learning for their child. Parents could help their children succeed in school by organizing study sessions, reviewing their child’s work, and keeping them physically active. Study sessions could have a positive impact on a child. Parents could organize study sessions which would require the child to study materials twice a week at the town library. These sessions at the library would provide them with a quiet environment to learn and get a better understanding of their work.
There is a famous quote by John F. Kennedy “The goal of education is the advancement of knowledge and the dissemination of truth.” As a parent, people around us might view home schooling as better especially those that home schooled as a child growing up. Most parents’ think that having their child interact with other children is important, but that can be accomplished after school as well, by playing or engaging in recreational activities. Public school encourages socialization everyday and developing new friendships, they are also interacting with children
Attachment can be defined as a bond formed between a child and educator, and a child to their parents. This is “the basis of healthy care and education is social-emotional development and the basis of that is attachment comes from synchronous relationships” (Gonzalez-Mena, 2009); we say this to say that the parent or educators are in sync with the child’s needs. A child can experience distress when being separated from their parents, and can be comforted by having a healthy attachment to their teacher. They know that when they are with their teacher their needs are going to be met, that they are safe, and that they will be cared for. Self-help skills: These are skills that you can teach in the classroom and that the parents can incorporate at home.
She tells me she has been taught by her teacher things like how to spell the word, “butt” and how to look for leaks by locating brown spots on the ceiling. After school programs should be a place where children can continue to learn and grow within educational boundaries. It should not be a facility used only for babysitting or supervision until the parent arrives. These government funded programs should be taken more seriously by the administrators by implementing a better academic curriculum, hiring educated staff, and promoting higher learning. An academic curriculum is something that I feel should be in place during after school programming because during this time of day you can count on a child having a wondering mind that may lead to danger if left idle for too long.
We give our kids responsibilities at home and make them part of our small social group. We try to show our kids that education can alter their life in many ways. In one of the articles in the family and society magazine, there was a discussion about “Concerted cultivation”, a concept that Lareau has used to describe the parenting practices of middle-class parents and the way they organized, established and controlled activities. Lareau also mentioned that the idea behind it was to provide and make sure their children have positive social and cultural experiences” (2011). My social circle is, friends I feel comfortable around and have the same life style we have.
The administration of my school work with the community partners to develop a climate that is welcoming to families and students. They acknowledge that our students have varying academic and nonacademic needs and try to connect students to supports that meet those needs. Support for family and community involvement begins with school administrators. Their willingness to recruit parents and community members for school tasks, to listen to other people's viewpoints, and to share decision making provides a necessary foundation for all school-family-community partnerships. Our principal is very supportive
My philosophy on Early Childhood Education I believe as a teacher, I am responsible for providing young children with a positive learning experience. I strive to be a positive role model for the children left in my care, and in the community I serve. Children have the right to have their needs meet, to have a positive learning experience while in the care of their caregivers. Children learn what they live, and I have the opportunity while working with these children on a daily basis to teach them how to respect one another, by leading by example. You can teach them patients by showing them patients.
Family Centered Teaching Abstract What does family centered teaching mean? Does that mean to have the entire family in the classroom? No, what it means is being able to build relationships with the parents of the child, while providing the child with a learning environment that is exciting, fun, and will help the child, and the family, find and gain access to resources in the community. How does attachment lead to self-help skills? And does this lead to empowerment for the child?
Volunteering in the classroom is another way the parent can be involved with their children. A lot of the teacher are grateful for the help in the classroom and welcome the parents who can help out with things like reading to the students and special projects. Being present in your child classroom you allow your child to know how important their education is you and for them. With all the availability of early childhood education across the world, we do not need to question the reason why early childhood education is important. We can see that the benefits are greater than the
A positive role model can encourage children to stay in school to gain the skills necessary to succeed. Parents and teachers who stay engaged in a child’s life teach that child the value of an education and that school is a safe place to express one’s self. Role models demonstrate that attending school gives children a group of friends and extracurricular activities, which help children, enjoy school. They motivate a child that dropping out of school is not an option for people who want to become someone, and they can motivate them to improve their understanding of the world by staying in school. A positive role model can promote healthy eating and a healthy lifestyle.
