RC II-2 Language and Literacy
RC II-3 Creative Arts
RC II-4 Fine Motor (Indoor Activity)
RC II-5 Gross Motor (Outdoor Activity)
RC II-6 Self Concept
RC II-7 Emotional Skills/Regulation

These should be, but may not be limited to, activities you have planned and used in past lessons. You may either write your descriptions in the spaces provided or include copies of your lesson plans that fit each of the nine areas.
For each experience, indicate the age group (3s, 4s, or 5s) and list the intended goals, materials and processes/teaching strategies. For each activity, discuss why it is developmentally appropriate for that age group.
It is best to include a Visual/Sample/Picture of your activity and place it in an optional, but preferred, plastic sheet cover.
