Project reflection1

  1. 1. Reflection During the project process the observer actively listened and maintained eyecontact; showed non-verbal gesture such as nodding, smiling, and appropriatetouch to positively interact with children. The observer waited patiently for arespond and allowed the child to finish the sentences. This polite method ofcommunication allowed confident to the child it showed the child that they areimportant to me. The observers modeled herself to ECE, parents and childrenwhich contribute to a positive relationship. While completing the project, the observer motivated their learning skillsand participated in every activity. The observer planned age appropriate activitiesaccording to their needs and wants, boost their confident and self-esteem. Theseactivities covered all their development domains which allowed them to explore bysetting up the environments. As Piaget (1930-1978) mentioned “teacher is aguiding mentor who arranges safe, supportive environments.”Vygotsky (1930-1978) also emphasized the role of adults he mentioned “adultsneed to scaffold children’s learning by asking questions, giving hints.” Theobserver asked open –ended questions and helped them in further explorations.The observer and children learned, explored together through different creativeactivities, such as art, music, math, and science, sensory and dramatic play which

As an attentive caregiver, I believe every child is unique and any child canhave a special talent no matter where they live or where they are. They need ourtime, attention, guidance, support, and encouragement to help them become astrong and confident person. We as an adult and teachers can consistently treatthem with respect without inappropriate behaviours. We can patiently listen tothem with respect and support them to learn, using the Vygotsky method. Thenreinforce the method to understand and learn. Overall, completing this project assignment was a challenging task, I spentplenty of time working with children, providing good material and documenting inmy project. I hope that it meets the requirements and provides enough data in thearea. I would definitely do more research next time so I can learn more about mytopic and will gain more knowledge about it.
