Early Child Education
Transcript of Early Child Education
I fulfill my roles and responsibilities by providing materials, engaging activities and having a classroom experience that allows my students to explore a whole array of skills. It is important to nurture the children in all aspects of development; socially, physically, cognitively, and emotionally.
A safe and stimulating environment offer many opportunities to learn and explore. Children can learn through play, learn to pay attention at group time, make their own choices in learning centers, and are allowed to make mistakes and be able to learn from them. Conversations between teachers and students is another way of stimulation a young child's mind. Facilitating memory in children can be done by singing songs, rhymes and reading repetitive books daily.
Roles and Responsibilities
My key roles and responsibilities in the classroom are to be prepared and flexible each and every day. I am responsible for keeping the children safe, guiding them to learning, and encouraging them to find their own answers. Also, being consistent and providing predictable routines, help the children adapt, become responsible and grow in confidence.
Characteristics of Children in ECE
Meeting the emotional needs of young children include love, acceptance, positivity, and listening. When showing a child love, a child can feel secure in his/her classroom. Enthusiasm and positivity are great ways to promote positive attitudes in the classroom. Modeling acceptance and embracing the ways we are different can promote confidence in a young child.
Gross motor and fine motor skills are essential in early childhood education. Gross motor skills such as throwing, running, hopping, jumping, kicking, climbing are important for a young child's body. Providing outdoor play for large body movements are key to a child's physical development. This can include small riding toys, age-appropriate climbing equipment, balls, and low balance beams.
Fine motor activities such as grasping objects, drawing and painting, using a scissor, doing puzzles and using utensils are all great ways to increase a yound child's fine motor skills.
Early Child Education Presentation
I am a North Carolina Preschool teacher (NCPK)! Proudly, I lay the foundation to learning. My teaching is influenced by the historical theorist Lev Vygotsky, where "children construct knowledge -they don't just take it in."
I try to provide a safe, supportive learning environment, rich in language and social interaction.
The characterisitcs of children in an early childhood classroom include curiosity, an eagerness to interact, being emotional and egocentric. They enjoy seeing the world through their own eyes!
Building relationships with both friends and teachers is a great part of the socialization process at Preschool. The children learn how to communicate their wants and ideas, feel empathy towards their peers, learn how to share and take turns, and share experiences with others.
Working effectively with families and the community is serving the family, not just the child. Two-way communication is important in developing and maintaining relationships with families. This can be done during conversations at drop-off/pick-up times, via email, telephone calls, and home visits.
Sending home daily/weekly newsletters also lets the family know what and how their child is learning.
What make me unique in this field is my enthusiasm and positivity! I encourage my students to be the BEST they can be!
This attitude will positively affect the young child's motivation to learn!
