Competency Goal II
To Advance physical and intellectual competence
4. Physical I am competent in the area of physical activity. My goal is to get every child moving every day. To accomplish my goal I observe each child’s physical capabilities and limitations. I create a purposeful physical activity that is fun and challenging to develop fine and gross motor skills. Physical development is important to a child’s cognitive development. I put a fine and gross motor activity in every monthly newsletter to parents to create awareness. I use music and dance to allow children to experience cultural diversity. I use cultural songs, dances, and finger plays.
5. Cognitive I am competent in the area of cognitive development. My goal in the area of cognitive is to create meaningful experiences through exploration, problem solving, and curiosity to allow children to learn actively. To accomplish my goal I use every day activities such as cooking, gardening, building, and dramatic play to teach. I encourage curiosity and problem solving with every activity by asking open ended questions. I respond to children’s interest by webbing themes to create immersion learning. I recognize children learn differently and incorporate all centers as active learning discovery opportunities. I set aside time before and after center time to ask questions to extend the child’s thinking. I am aware of each child’s progress and support them with new and challenging opportunities.
6. Communication I am competent in the area of communication. My goal in the area of communication is to create an enriched environment for exploring and expanding all forms of communication at each child’s level. To accomplish my goal I sign in the classroom. The children can then hear and see the words. When transitioning activities I count to five in English, Spanish, French, Mandarin, German, or Italian to get the children to stop what they are doing and get ready for

    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.…
