Cda Competency Goal 2 For Children
Competency Goal Two To advance physical and intellectual competence Physical development is very important for children. In my classroom I provide activities that appropriate for children to help develop in the areas of physical, cognitive, creative and language development. I do believe having activities that appropriate for children in my classroom helps meet the needs of children in physical development. Infants and toddlers grow fast in first two years of life. It is very important to help them develop their fine and gross motor skills. In my class I have different textures of materials like soft books, touch and feel books, puzzles, nesting blocks, plastic animals, and rattles to help strengthen their small muscles. And I have Tunnels, big and small balls, balance beam, push toys like lawnmower, grocery Cart, and more. I sing action songs like” If you happy and you it clap your hands” this helps develop their large muscles skills and eye coordination. In my class I have activities that helps toddlers develop cognitive skills. I encourage toddlers to explore, …show more content…
In my class room I have to make sure that crayons, papers, construction materials, paints, markers, pencils, glitters and some more materials are ready and available for children in our daily activities. I have musical instruments like, xylophones, drums, guitars and CD to play and to sing along with and I have a place where they can arrange their own band. Children loves to play dress up, some pretend to be a Mom and Dad and some pretend to be a fire man so I also have a dramatic area set in my class room so they can explore in their own play spaces. I believe that it is important for them to have many means of expressing their activities. And I posted some of their finish activity on the wall to make them feel proud of what they have

    I did not design the lunch menu for my center; however, I serve it to my children on a daily basis. We use the CRMC food service, which has many benefits. One positive aspect is that there is no extra cost to the center, and enough food is delivered daily so that each child is served the appropriate proportions. My center works with the hospital to create a “short cycle menu,” a menu that is different everyday and repeats itself after a certain number of days, specifically a one-week cycle menu that is chosen by our director with faculty input. This cycle menu shows strengths because the children seem to enjoy a shorter cycle of fewer foods, and our director is able to control the menu to ensure that quality foods are served. The food served each day includes the food groups required for a balanced diet with whole milk. None of the meals contain potential choking hazards and all food is cut with food scissors for my age group. Each month, our center updates our allergy alert sheet, which is posted in every classroom. The staff complies to each child’s needs everyday at lunch and snack. I would not change my centers lunch menu because it promotes a healthy diet, meets their nutritional needs, and the children like it.…

    For infants and toddlers, development occurs in all of these areas as they use their senses to gain a sense of security and identity and to explore the people and objects in their world. Too often, curriculum guides for infant/toddler programs emphasize intellectual stimulation above other critical areas of development. The availability of books promising to build superior minds are plentiful, as are toys designed to teach lessons and skills to even the youngest infant. But what is important in meeting the developmental needs of infants and toddlers can be found in the responsive relationships children build with the important adults in their lives.…

    Physical development is the process that starts in infancy and progresses into late adolescence, concentrating on motor skills as well as puberty. Physical development involves developing control over the body, particularly muscles and physical coordination. As I have become more educated about the physical development of children throughout infancy, early, middle/late childhood, and adolescence, I have come to an understanding that there are several necessary steps that can be taken to ensure that a child has optimum physical development. Some of these steps should be taken in the first few years in the child’s life and some should be taken in the later years of the child’s life.…

    Children at preschool age, experience a time of rapid evolution through a several of developmental events, so those events help children’s rational abilities or cognition. In ABC 123 Educational Developmental Learning preschool, we incorporate several activities that benefit children to growth their abilities. Each child will learn pre-academic abilities at diverse rates that are important. Children should be on exposing to child to new thoughts and developing their interest in learning as opposed to placing too much emphasis on them to master specific reading or math skills because, in this period, kids acquire knowledge of how to use symbolic thought.

    We as staff are their first teachers in life. They are natural copycats. I choose this age group of infant/toddlers because I believe this is a very important stage in a child’s life. Infants/toddlers learn by watching what we do no matter if it’s a positive action or a negative one. They will copy us its just what they do. So being mindful of how we talk and move and our tone really sets the mood for their learning. In my infant/toddler program, there are many things I would like to see happen and the way I would approach it is by teaching my staff how to apply The Creative Curriculum approach. This is a comprehensive early childhood educational system that emphasizes a practical, easy to understand approach to working with children. It promotes the use of interest areas as a way of providing experiences that promote cognitive, social, and physical and language development. (Teaching strategies gold). I would use this method by setting up everything in the class at eye level. The children need to be able to see and touch everything. Sensory is very important at this age and allowing the infants access to their surroundings helps build their social emotional and physical needs. Children learn through play and every day life experiences and creative curriculum allows me the ability to let them play and learn at the same time. Our teachers will set up their classroom in areas that allow for science,…

Maximise the educational value by giving the children a chance to develop their imaginations. Some crafts may look beautiful when assembled 'properly', but a well-designed craft will also allow the child their own choices, e.g. of colours and patterns.…
