1. 1. Guidance Log 1 Reflective Practice Guidance Log Lekha Rajiv Professor L. Bennet Guidance and the Individual Child ECEP 132, Section 002 4 March 2011
2. 2. Guidance Log 2Time: 9:30 AMD.O.B: 12 June 2010Child’s name: KairoObserver name: Lekha RajivSetting: Indoor to outdoor play groundContext: Child taking off the mittens outdoors. Part 1-Objective Observation (Clearly identify the problem. Examine the “context” of the problem)Date: 23 February ,2011On the 23rd of February, Thursday at 9:30 AM, the children were taken outside foroutdoor play. Toddlers were dressed up with coats, snow pants, caps, mittens and bootswith the help of teachers. The teachers also dressed up in winter clothes to model forchildren. The teachers asked the children to form a line and walk slowly. When theyreached the playground the ECE asked them to sit first and then she called the names ofthe children one by one. After that, the children started playing. While Kairo was playing,he kept taking off his mittens of both his hands in the cold. I got down to his eye-leveland asked him to leave the mittens on by telling him “I am worried about your handsbeing cold.” I also said “if you put your mittens your hands will be warm.” I showed himmy mittens and told him “my hands are warm because I am wearing mittens.” Kairolooked at my mittens and started to put his mittens on and I helped him. Part 2- Decision (Clearly identify the guidance strategy and state why the chosen strategy is appropriate for this child/situation)I used the modeling and imitation strategy here to show Kairo the importance of wearingmittens in the cold weather. This guidance strategy is developmentally appropriate fortoddlers. According to Bandura the modeling strategy is based on the child watching theadult and the child follows their activity (Marion, 2011, pp.132). For Bandura, a “childcan learn something just by watching it” (Marion, 2011, pp.132). By setting the rightexample, the child follows you. The teacher becomes the role model for the child. I usedthis authoritative style of care-giving in this scenario because it helps children safe andsecure (Class Handouts, January 15 2012). When the child performs something learnedthrough modeling, the child imitated the behavior. Imitation is “performing an actionmodeled by someone else (Marion, 2011, pp.132). When the teachers models an activity,the child learns it and while performing the act the child imitates the teacher. Part 3-Action (Clearly discuss your action, the child’s response and the results of the guidance strategy)Action
