Early Childhood Education
example portfolio (not real person)
John appears to have many friends at school. Jimmy and Jill are often his first choices for playmates. Jimmy and John like to race trikes together and Jill likes to play tag.
John always says "please" and "thank you"
John does not get along with Tommy, they always seem to argue about personal space.
John is very skilled at controlling his emotions and using his words with his friends.
There was one day where John's juice box leaked all over his sandwich and he started to cry.
He ended up falling asleep in the reading area and his mom came to get him because he had a fever.
This behavior is normal when children do not feel well.
Besides this instance, John was always observed as happy
Personality, Memory, Intelligence and Logic all fall under the category of Cognitive Development.

John's Gross Motor
John often plays on tricycles at school, runs around to play tag with his friends, and dances to the song "Shake your wiggles out" at circle time.
Fine Motor Development
The Development of the small muscles in our hands that help us do daily tasks.
John's Fine Motor
John holds his crayons with a supinate grasp most of the time and has a hard time buttoning his jeans after going to the bathroom. When given the choice, he would rather go outside to play over doing puzzles or playdough.
5 Senses & Sensory Processing
The 5 senses are important for child development because they help individuals take in information about their surroundings and react to it.
Children also need sensory input for balance and to know where their body is in space.
John's 5 Senses
During "Science Week" John took part in the sensory "ring around the room". He shook plastic eggs to listen to what was inside, he touched and played with ooblek, he looked at things through a kaleidoscope and with magnifying glasses, he smelled scents presented through salt shakers, and he tasted foods that were salty, sweet, sour, and bitter.
John uses his senses everyday too to engage in activities like finger painting, using scented playdough, to know when to put on a jacket, etc.
In general: Sept-May
Specific day of illness:
John's intelligence capabilities are yet to be explored. His abilities to remember and reason are based on his experiences as well as his genes.
As far as can be determined so far, John is an intelligent young man still in an exploration phase.
September-May In General
Memory and Personality
When read a book, John is very capable of retelling the sequence of the book several minutes after hearing it. He can put the events back in order as they happened in the story (Brown Bear Brown Bear).
This indicates John's proficient memory skills.
At John's age he would fall under Erik Erikson's Initiative vs Guilt stage - he is searching for purpose
Piaget's Conservation Tasks
Conservation tasks test for logic
Logic of Amount
John was presented with two rows of 5 pennies evenly spaced out. When asked if the rows of pennies had the same amount or different amounts as each other John answered: The same.
While John watched, one row of pennies was spread out. John was asked the same exact question again, and his answer was: different.
Logic of Volume
John was presented with two cups of water, each glass identical and filled with 8oz. John was asked if they had the same or different amounts. He said: Same
As he watched, one glass was poured into a tall cylinder glass and was asked the same question. He said: Different.
There are several other conservation tasks that could have been completed with John. John's answers to these questions, although they are incorrect, are typical for his age. Children do not develop adult logic until about age 7.
John did these tasks with a teacher on 4/10
Based on all of this information, John is a typically developing child. He may need Occupational Therapy services to address his fine motor skills and to provide him with direction and practice.
