Competency Statement II
To advance physical and intellectual competence

Reflective Statement

To advance physical competence, I allow children the opportunity to use their large and small muscles in various capacities. With young infants, I allow them the space to kick, roll over, or have tummy time. Playing music or singing to them allows them to use these skills more adequately. With mobile infants and toddlers, I give them activities that allow them to walk or run to use their gross motor skills. I also give them activities to help with their fine motor skills, such as coloring, or steps with slides. I teach them to feed themselves first with picking up their food then advancing to a spoon. To advance cognitive competence, I talk to the children, I interact with them using toys, allowing them to socialize with other people. Since the infants need to be stimulated and challenged, I read with them by opening books and face the pictures toward them. I read the story or point to the different items in the pictures and repeat the names of these items several times. I sing along with CDs and clap my hands or do hand motions. To advance communication competence, I like to talk to the infants while I am changing their diapers, feeding them or changing their clothes. I like to read to them and have them say some of the words back to me. I also like to have the toddlers sit in a circle with toys they like and have them tell us about the toy if they can. To advance creative competence, I allow them to experiment with different arts and crafts to come up with their own creations. During story time, we give the kids a theme and let them make up a story of their
