Parent Meeting

In this presentation I will be presenting how my program aligns curriculum plans with early learning standards. I will also discuss how developmentally appropriate practice isincorporated as well as give examples of properly formatted lessons plans.


1.Social Skill Development deals with the way in which children learn to interact with others and get along with others and adults and developing good relationships with teachers.2.Socialization is the process by which children learn to understand and adapt to rules and playing cooperatively.3.Children’s social responsibility is a measure of their respect for individual differences, their care for the environment and their ability to function as good citizens.

Developmental Identification

My lesson plan for literacy will focus on major aspects for the development of literacy emotion, compare and contrast and direct interaction.Brief Description: The children will be shown six pictures that began with the letter “A”. Following the viewing of pictures that begin with the letter “A” children will close their eyes while one picture from the group will be taking away and the children will then determine what picture of the six is missing.Goals: for children to learn the letters and sounds more effectively while being associated with a picture and or visual imageSpecific Objects: Fine motor skill developmentGross motor skill developmentMixing closely associated letters and pictures Required Materials: Flash cards, pictures including letter A, table

Lesson Plan for Literacy

Brief Description: children will be able to count to100 by ones and tens.Goals: is to count objects to understand the relationship between numbers and quantities from 1-20. Specific objects: Represent a number of objects with written numeral 0-20. Required materials: flash cards 1-100.Lesson plan Procedure: Students will compare two or more sets of objects in each group and identify which set equal to more than or less than the other up to 10.

Lesson Plan for Math

Brief Description : children will be able to plant a flower and learn what make it grow.Goals: discovering relationships and learning about nature, plants, growth environment learn social skills and responsibilitySpecific objects: soil, water, seeds, flower pot, plant lightRequired materials: Provide books on science, plant seeds and dirt water.Lesson plan procedure: children will learn how to be responsibility and how to grow a flower.

Lesson Plan for Science

Lesson Plan for Creative Arts

Play is an essential part of growing up and researchers believe it’s critical to ensure children reach their full potential in life. Play allows a young child to be “in charge”. Think about this — in their everyday lives, they’re small and powerless, always being told what to do, and how to do it. Without an adult around, they’re running the show! Play builds self-esteem. Children will often play at something they know they can do well, at which they can be successful. Play builds social skills. Children will begin playing with inanimate and non-threatening objects, like cuddly toys, bricks etc, so practicing their interactive skills. Later, playing with other children will build on this foundation as they learn to share, take turns, assert themselves and begin to empathies with others.

The various Strategies used in children’s learning areQuestioning Observing Analyzing Checking children’s understanding Engaging children in reviewing progress

Strategies in children’s learning

In this the Children’s own ideas must be appreciated This will make them to have new focus on their thoughts (Vogel, 2010).The teacher’s form of modelling as well as teaching should follow the children’s ideas .

Strategies in children’s development

The developmental issues for young children in foster care are Effects of abuse as well as placement in foster care on the brain development of children challenges of establishing a children attachment to their caretakersNoticing the children’s changing behaviour during foster carechild’s response to that of stress.

Issues for children in foster care

Learning standards can easily impact positively on quality of child’s curriculum It also enhances the communications among the childhood Thus early learning standards will benefit more in young children as they will be confident and curious learners.
