I even cheer them on when they struggle with a task. To develop a sense of independence and pride, I let the children each day choose the classroom helpers. There are many tasks that the children are able to choose from. I structure the environment to offer opportunities for children to share information about themselves, their families, and experiences. I make it easier for the children to explore new experiences and the environments by making them feel assured of the support and availability of me, thus increasing his confidence.
1.1 The ability to communicate or understand and use speech is vital for all areas of development in children and young people. As language and speech develops in young people, they learn how to express themselves and their needs hence the ability to control their emotions. In ability to express ones' self often result in display of behaviour as a physical reaction to their feelings in proportion to how they feel regarding the situation at hand. Behaviour shows a measure of control or the lack of it. Behaviour therefore whether positive or negative becomes a means of expressing either displeasure or approval from the one displaying it as a means of communicating.
Most people feel the need to express or needs and feelings. We also need to be there to help young children do the same, we can do this by listening and taking interest in their thoughts and emotions. It is essential for children to do this because without making their needs and feelings known to others they can become very frustrated and isolated which can lead to social difficulties later in life. Communication is also for sharing ideas and thoughts. This is important in children to build their creativity and language skills by learning how to get their ideas across to others.
5 In this assignment I will be explaining what speech, language and communication is and what SLC needs are. Speech is verbal language, the act of speaking and expressing yourself through words. This involves children making sounds using their voice and vocal chords. Shaping the words with their mouths. This means they are learning to communicate with others.
Unit 136 Support children’s learning and development in the early years 3.1 – Analyse the role of responsive communication in promoting children’s care, leaning and development. Active listening Reciprocal communication Non verbal communication Augmentative communication Gestures, rhymes, songs, finger plays, drawings and representation Appropriate and accurate use of language It is important to know and understand the role of representative communication in order to promote the children’s development. Active listening is not just listening but thinking about what you hear, the use of body language and other signals that are sent out through play. It is important to give time to be able to think about how to respond. Your full attention should be given.
Their conversations/interactions with children Adult’s interaction with children plays a very important role in children’s learning and development Listen and give them the time they need to answer. Gives children feedback on what they are doing, whenever possible encourage children to solve problems for themselves. Celebrates their progress and achievements, and helps them to learn from mistakes, use encouragement as well as praise. Adults should not make statements that evaluate or judge .instead make objective, specific comments that encourage children to expand their descriptive language and think about what they are doing. Make it a playful atmosphere, in which both adult and child are enjoying the time spent together; Adults.
Outcome 1.2 Learning – language is the vehicle for most learning, and proficiency in speech, language and communication is critical to the development of children’s cognitive, social and emotional well-being. Poor language skills will impact on children’s attainment in school. Emotional – good understanding is needed to support the success of programmes such as social emotional aspects of learning (SEAL). Behaviour – speech, language and communication skills support behaviour, as with inadequate skills, a child may become frustrated not being able to communicate and get their point across and therefore may cause behaviour difficulties. However, they may also be able to learn to behave in a way in which they can communicate.
3.3 Help children and young people to understand and respect other people’s feelings and points of view. Children and young people need to learn to understand and respect the feelings, emotions and behaviours of others to help them gain an understanding about their actions and consequences. Young children might find this difficult as their understanding will not be as developed enough for them to put themselves in the position of others, but as children grow and learn they gain a greater experience of this and often older pupils will enjoy opportunities to debate and discuss different points of view in lesson time and in social situations. We often speak to them in school about thinking of the consequences of their actions and how they might have affected others. Ways in which my workplace helps young people to consider others feelings * Books, stories, magazines, literacy reading times and interaction through reading.
You need to speak to the children in a way in which they understand for the age range you are working with to explain what they need to do. If the children are being noisy or doing something you don’t agree with you need to use a firm voice to communicate your disagreement with what they are doing and then tell them what they need to be doing. You also need to come up with fun and interesting ways to encourage or make learning easier to understand. Give praise when they have completed a task, answered a question correctly or given information relevant to the lesson in hand. You need to encourage the use of good manners please, thankyou, etc and deter bad manners and behaviour by talking to the child in question and telling them how they need to behave.
1.2 DESCRIBE WITH EXAMPLES HOW TO BEHAVE APPROPRIATELY FOR A CHILD OR YOUNG PERSON’S STAGE OF DEVELOPMENT? First impressions are important for everyone not only child but for parents and people we work with. Children of different age will need varying levels of attention; some may be more advanced than others. Children with “special needs” will need more help. When we work with infants at nursery to help them with basics vocabulary and numeracy we need to choose media that will help them understand.
