REFLECTIVE PRACTICE LOGS A learning process Nafezia Mohamed Created: December 29th 2012.
WHAT I HAVE LEARNED? By practicing all the new guidance strategies that I have acquired this semester, I have learned that the most important thing is to build trust with the children.
TRUST HELPED ME TO LEARN WHEN ICOULD HAVE DONE SOMETHING BETTERIN TERMS OF TALKING TO THE CHILDRENOR USING A DIFFERENT GUIDANCESTRATEGY. Trust help the children learn more about themselves and about their student ECE.
I HAVE LEARNED THAT ACTIVE LISTENING REQUIRES GREAT PATIENCE. By learning how to listen to the children’s feeling and then restating it to them was a bit of a challenge, however, I believe that at the end of the semester I had gained a great deal of knowledge on actively listening to children. This was due to hard work and a great teacher.
I LEARNED THAT CHILDREN LIKE TO SHARE THEIR FEELINGS. Children are full of energy and love to talk to who ever is willing to listen to them. I learned that during placement, the children loved to talk about how they felt and what was bothering them.
I LEARNED THAT THERE ARE VERY POSITIVE WAYS IN WHICH CHILDREN CAN EXPRESS THEMSELVES Talking Listening Learning to come up with solutions to a problem (Negotiations)
I PLAN ON USING ALL MY NEW FOUND SKILLS IN MY NEXT PLACEMENT This can be done by practicing all that I have learned and by putting them to use in my life. I have learned many things by taking this guidance course. I can’t wait to see what the new semester holds.
