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.
Finally, educators with effective communication skills prove an ability to adapt teaching methods to suit the needs of students they are supporting (Kearns, 2012), and with appropriate delivery of good communication, student learning increases. When delivering student education, acquiring effective communication skills involving the delivery of high written and verbal skills, and literacy development is essential for teachers to aid children’s needs for learning, as this assists to prove social and cognitive development for children when the teacher collaborates towards educating children. Good communication skills from early childhood educators ensure children’s skills are enhanced when
By becoming a member of our Patrick Henry PTA you can become an important part of helping to ensure that these plans become a reality. The PTA works to enhance our student’s educational experience by sponsoring enrichment programs and social events, along with support for our classrooms through the purchase of select supplies and equipment, as well as providing an opportunity for parental/guardian involvement and enhanced communication between parents and school staff. Your participation is the key to our success. We invite you to get involved and be an important part of this educational experience. Studies have shown that parents who are active in their child’s education can improve schoolwork, test scores, and behavior.
The observations were very enlightening and gave me a good perspective of the interaction between the students and the teachers and also helped me observe some teaching and learning skills as they are conducted in real classroom settings. Teachers use different practices to organize their classrooms, interact with students and present the information, and by observing those teachers, I have learned new ways to interact with students and explain the contents of the class. The observations have also affected the way I think about disabled students in terms of the accommodations they need. Although reading and learning about ways and skills to deal with students with special needs was very important, observing actual students with learning and physical disabilities helped me realize the difficulties these student face. I think this will help me in the future to better modify my lesson plans to accommodate all of my students.
Language Rich Environment Caitlin Hope Graham ECE 315: Language Development in Young Children Professor Laura Carlee August 25, 2014 Language Rich Environment Children learn language better when they can use their environment to promote their learning. “The key to creating and implementing language-rich classroom environment is infusing the classroom with rich adult-child interactions.” (Justice, 2004). In designing my classroom, I chose three ways to enrich their environment to help promote their language learning. By placing the children’s desks so that they can not only focus on me but also at what is either being taught in the front or the back of the classroom. Segregating an area of the classroom for constructive play with lots of access to books and paper enables the children to express themselves creatively, but allows them to give action to their creativity.
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). Thus it is imperative that early learning practitioners use their role to encourage parents to be involved in their child’s learning, which can help to increase self-confidence in parenting and support feelings of belonging and inclusion in their child’s development. The implementation of partnership with parents as a part of my workshop plan provides additional resources for the nursery’s learning community (Eldridge, 2001), as knowledge gain from such interactions can allow early learning practitioners to gain greater understanding of family cultures, an increased appreciation of parental interest in helping their children and a deeper respect for parent’s time and abilities. Successful

Self-help skills: These are skills that you can teach in the classroom and that the parents can incorporate at home. Self-help skills are important because it teaches the children to do things for themselves, have a sense of independence, a sense of accomplishment when they learn a
EARLY CHILDHOOD PEDAGOGY The term pedagogy refers to the holistic nature of early childhood educators’ professional practice (especially those aspects that involve building and nurturing relationships), curriculum decision-making, teaching and learning. When educators establish respectful and caring relationships with children and families, they are able to work together to construct curriculum and learning experiences relevant to children in their local context. These experiences gradually expand children’s knowledge and understanding of the world. Educators’ professional judgements are central to their active role in facilitating children’s learning. In making professional judgements, they weave together their: • professional knowledge and skills • knowledge of children, families and communities • awareness of how their beliefs and values impact on children’s learning • personal styles and past experiences.
