In the initial few months babies will recognise familiar voices and faces, they will try to 'people please' and bay for attention by performing for their audience through laughter and giggles. They will enjoy playing games with others such as peek a boo.
In addition, during my observation, Sydney was able to demonstrate the following gross motor skills. Sydney was placed in a sitting position on the table as well on the floor and was able to sit up unassisted for brief periods of time. Although Sydney appeared to be unstable at times, her mother closely spotted her to ensure her safety. Most babies are able to sit up by themselves unassisted for short periods of time (Oswalt, n.d.). By being able to sit upright and support the weight of her head in the proper position, shows Sydney has developed her core body strength and has met this developmental milestone. In addition, while lying on a blanket on her stomach, Sydney was able to lift her chest and head. According to American Pregnancy Association, most infants at 6 months old can lift their chest and part of their stomach while lying face down (First,
There was not a lot of verbalizing from her during the observation, but the verbalizations I did observe were indicators the developmental milestones she has reached. She was making many sounds like ‘babababa” and making consonant sounds. I observed her responding to sounds I made by laughing or producing quick sounds. She even
Today is my first day doing my practice observation in the Infant Room Classroom Number 3, my fears are how the infants go reaction to see me because I am new person for them that they never have seen before, how the teacher go feel to have a student in the classroom, if they will support me and cooperate with practice, and how the parents will response to see a new teacher in the classroom, I know for my teaching experience that parents are very special about the people who is round to their children.
For my child observation, I went to the Pearl Street Head Start center in Glens Falls. During the four hours that I spent there I focused mainly on the observation of a four year old female that for the sake of privacy I’ll call Sarah. Based on my observation and conversations with the teacher we came to an agreement that Sarah falls more on the low end of the spectrum as she fits more into the requirements for a three to four year old rather than those for the four to five year old age range. That being said, Sarah is relatively on target for a girl of her age in all areas.
This interaction took place in a Day Nursery named ‘The Mill’. It was between me, Michelle and Lily, aged 3. For this piece of coursework I have decided to change the name of the child and the nursery for confidentiality reasons. Lilly was playing with her dolls. In this interaction I used verbal and nonverbal communication.
8:00 – 8:05 As I walk into Auburn Early Education Center the thing that stood out was the condition of the building. The building appears to look modern, and there were a diverse group of children. In the Physical Education Center, there was a plethora of physical education equipment. There are multiple balls, paddles, hula-hoops, cones, and poly spots in mint condition. There were 12 instructors in total. There is a total of six stations, and two instructors assigned to each station. Each station consists of locomotor and object manipulation practice. There are paddles for striking, basketballs for bouncing, and foam balls for catching at two of the stations. The other four stations set were locomotor skill practice. Approximately 40 preschoolers
I observed the two year old baby that I often baby-sit throughout the week. His name is Lincoln and he his at my house from seven til around four every weekday. Although he is very small and seems to be behind on development, he is very smart. He loves to play with his toys, and always has to be doing something. He is very aware of what goes on around him and he interacts with these things very well. He likes to repeat things that are said and done. Especially things I say or do. He calls my mom pretty often, but he seems to know the difference between her and his own mother so I think he does it out of habit, because he’ll usually do it when he is pouting, being ignored, or tired. He talks very well, but sometimes he’ll say something and
I went to Alameda Main Library on Saturday, February 20 at 10 am. It is located at 1550 Oak Street in Alameda. The name of the storytime is Mama Goose Storytime ages between one to three year old. The name of the storyteller is Sherry. The storytime lasts about 20-25 minutes and it includes age-appropriate stories, songs and fingerplays.
For this developmental observation, I decided to observe Sarah. She is a five-year-old in the stage of early childhood staying at the Ronald McDonald House. She is a loving, fun, and energetic kid. It was interesting to observe her and see what seemed normal for a girl her age to act. I was able to learn from interacting and observing Sarah.
Good morning John and Susan, it’s good to see you and Baby Steven today. After reviewing his growth chart and comparing it to the CDC growth chart, it looks like baby Steven is at the 75th percentile. A percentile that is greater than the 50th percentiles means a baby is above average (The WHO Child Growth Standards). This being said baby Steven is a little above average for his age. He is considered to be slightly overweight but it is nothing to worry about at this point. The rule of thumb is there is nothing to worry about unless a child jumps above or below two percentile lines.
A. The student will integrate caring behaviors in practicing the art and science of nursing within a diverse population. (Family Dynamics)
The high lights of this month were when I witnessed a vaginal birth of a healthy baby girl. Shortly after the baby's vaginal birth the baby was evaluated for its ability to adapt and transition normally to life outside the uterus. The baby was transported to a warming unit with a radiant heat source. The baby (now officially called a neonate) is dried of all moisture, which helps to minimize the loss of its core temperature. The nose and mouth of the baby are suctioned to clear the baby of all secretions and to aid in its first breathing efforts. The baby should begin crying within the first 30 seconds to one minute of life. To accomplish this, gentle stimulation is usually required and accomplished by rubbing the baby's back or gently stimulating
Thursday, September 6th, a little girl ”M“ comes to daycare in the morning a little bit late, at 10:15am. When she arrived her classmates were about to have a snack and she was very excited to see everybody. “M” gave her teacher a hug with her two arms. Then she turns to her mom and says: “Bye, Mommy!” and ran to the classroom. “M” was trying to grab the chair with her left hand to sit down and have a snack with her friends. 3 boys and 2 girls were sitting at the same round table. After trying twice to get a chair, she decided to use both hands to pull the chair out. “M” walked around the chair, bent down her knees and pulled the chair under her as she sat. She slowly sat down in the
In observing a normal newborn's behaviors and activities, reflexes play an important role. They help to identify normal brain and nerve activity. In my observation of Baby A, she demonstrated reflexes of rutting in finding the nipple of her bottle, sucking, head turning and grasping of my fingers. Although she was born full-term, she was quite small in stature and weight. She also showed alertness to senses of sight, hearing, taste and touch. Of course, at first, she slept most of the time while she was in my care, but as she aged, she became more active and alert. The key element to keeping Baby A happy was taking care of her physical needs first…diaper changes, feeding and burping. Although she is still very small in weight and height, she shows no sign of delayed development and is now a happy, healthy toddler.
