TO ADVANCE PHYSICAL AND INTELLECTUAL COMPETENCY I WILL DO MY BEST TO TEACH IN A SAFE AND FRIENDLY ENVIRONMENT. I WILL HAVE OPEN COMMUNICATION WITH THE CHILD AND THE FAMILY. ALSO WHILE CREATING MY WEEKLY PLAN I WILL INCLUDE PHYSICAL, COGNITIVE, AND CREATIVE ACTIVITIES TO IMPROVE ALL FUNCTIONAL AREAS. IN THE MORNINGS WHEN THE PARENTS ARE DROPPING-OFF THEIR CHILDREN WE USUALLY TRY TO ASK IF THE CHILD SLEPT GOOD, IF THE CHILD HAD ANYTHING TO EAT BEFORE COMING TO THE CENTER.WE SIT IN AT CIRCLE TIME AND ASK THE CHILDREN QUESTIONS AND SEE THEIR REACTIONS ON THE TOPICS. WE COMMUNICATE WITH THE CHILDREN THROUGHOUT THE DAY TO ENSURE THEIR WELL BEING AND TO HELP THEM UNDERSTAND WHAT IS GOING ON AROUND THEM. DURING OUTSIDE PLAY WE ENCOURAGE THE CHILDREN TO BE ACTIVE. THEY PLAY BALL, AT TIMES THE ROLL THE BALL AND LAUGH AT THE EFFECT THE BALL HAS WHEN IT IS PUSHED. THEY ARE LEARNING TO KICK THE BALL, OUR NEXT GOAL IS TO TEACH THEM TO THROW THE BALL. WE ARE ALSO SHOWING THEM HOW TO PUSH THEMSELVES WITH THEIR FEET ON THE RIDDING TOYS. INSIDE ACTIVITIES INCLUDE SONGS THAT THEY CAN DANCE TO, FOR EXAMPLE THE SONG “HEAD, SHOULDERS, KNEES, AND TOES”. THEY LEARN THE MOVEMENTS OF THEIR BODIES. DURING LIBRARY TIME WE SIT WITH THEM AND LOOK AT PICTURES AND ASK THEM “WHAT DO YOU SEE? , WHERE’S THE DOG?, OR WHAT’S IT DOING?” ALSO IN OUR BLOCK AREA WE USUALLY COUNT OUT THE BLOCKS TO THE CHILDREN AND WHEN GIVING THEM AN OBJECT WE SAY WHAT IT IS AND THE COLOR IT IS. THIS HELPS THEM WITH THEIR SORTING AND THINKING SKILLS. IN OUR CLASSROOM WE ENCOURAGE THEM TO USE THEIR CREATIVITY BY LETTING THEM USE THEIR IMAGINATION. WHEN WE READ FARM ANIMAL BOOKS WE USE PUPPETS TO HELP THEM UNDERSTAND WHAT THE ANIMALS LOOK LIKE AND THE SOUNDS THEY MAKE.THEY IMITATE THE SOUNDS AND ACTIONS OF THE ANIMALS.
