Transcript of Child Development
Are the pictures colorful, interesting, and easy to understand?
Does the book use descriptive language to bring it to life?
and many more... 4 to 6 year olds often enjoy books that involve experiences they haven't done and funny books. Art and music serve as an emotional outlet for children, especially when the child doesn't know how to express their feelings with words. Art and Music Children express their feelings and creativity as well as develop motor skills with art and music. By displaying a child's artwork, it helps build their self-confidence. Asking a child about their art helps develop verbal skills. Finger play, having motions in a song is often the way children are introduced to music and it helps improve motor skills. Music is a great teaching tool because many kids learn things by putting them to music. Vocabulary Many children learn all the basic forms of language easily. Ages 4 to 6 experience a quick increase in their vocabulary. Children can say 90% of words correctly by age 6. Physical development helps much of the improvement of speech difficulties. Children need to hear language that is specific and has a lot of detail. Talking to children from a very young age helps them develop speech. Speaking another language, coming from a different part of the country, and physical problems all affect speech development. Preschool and Kindergarten It is important that children develop a positive outlook at school because they go to school for many years. Preschool is used so that children get used to being in a school setting and learn how to act appropriately while in school. Studies show that children in a a full-day kindergarten program perform better in school. Children usually enter kindergarten by the age of 5. Children who start school too early had emotional problems. Children who start school too late have behavior problems. A child is ready for school if they can;
communicate with adults
manage personal needs
complete a task
follow directions and take turns
be patient Transitioning Even if the child has gone to preschool, going to kindergarten is a big change. Children have to adjust to:
longer hours in school
being around older kids
a bigger school The child should know his/her full name, address, and phone number before entering kindergarten. Share positive feelings about school and tell the child what to expect from school to prepare them. Have the child get plenty of rest and pick out their backpack, lunchbox, and clothes to be ready for school. NAEYC National Association for the Education of Young Children The worlds largest organization working for children's well-being. This is from birth to age 8 Goals:
improving working conditions and practice in early childhood education
striving to achieve a high-quality system of childhood teaching by supporting early childhood programs
building an organization that includes people committed to the excellence of early childhood education. Phonemes and alliteration It is important for kids to hear phonemes when learning to read. A phoneme is the individual sounds in a word. To develop phoneme awareness read rhyming books to kids.
Alliteration, the repetitions of certain sounds in a book, help a child learn phonemes. Research has found that bilingual children have an easier time learning to read. The End :)
