Child Develop. 10 17 April 2009 Child Study Introduction The Child Study data I have gathered comes from the observation I have completed at Mission Bell Elementary School. Mission Bell Elementary School is a local school in Riverside. In the P.M preschool class there are 24 students, one teacher, and one assistant. The child I decided to observe is names Zoe. Zoe is 4 years and 10 months old. I immediately was drawn to Zoe because she had such a big personality, was very social, and smart. I am glad that I choose to observe Zoe because she was able to make my observation process smooth and easy. While observing her I had to pay close attention to her biosocial development, motor skills, cognitive skills, communication skills,

Mandy Sanguigni Dr. Merrick Final Project – SPE 207 December 11, 2016 Final Project Serving others is a down deep way of learning more about yourself and helping others to see past themselves. Our Business and Professional Communication class participated in several service projects, which were interesting and exciting to be involved with helping others. As I am studying the major courses of Early Childhood/Special Education, our group project with the “Big Brothers Big Sister” program was very memorable to me. It was wonderful to have fun and participate in various activities with the kids. The environment was caring due to everyone helping each other accomplish different tasks. It was a great feeling to be able to share our time, talents, and hearts with the kids.
“Service-learning is a teaching and learning strategy that integrates meaningful community service with instruction and reflection to enrich the learning experience, teach civic responsibility, and strengthen communities” (Learn and Serve America National Service-Learning Clearinghouse). This assignment gave students the opportunity to go outside of their comfort zone, which is typically
Despite being a two hour a day drop off daycare the Kid Zone is a primary agent of socialization for children who are not in all day daycares or some form of traditional schooling yet. A child can learn quite a bit in the time they spend in the Kid Zone especially when the child is there on a daily basis. Due to the nature of regular children often coming in my coordinator felt it was necessary to add a scheduled “curriculum” to the daycare. This curriculum is composed of basic daycare activities you would see in a standard preschool. Things such as physical activities, crafts, reading and establishing a number and letter based mindsets are all utilized on a daily basis at set times. The time we spend with the children may be short but as their
Each of us will show we are leaders by being positive role models for these young people by showing them we genuinely care about them and their futures. We represent the service component by taking time to work in an organization that is in need of volunteers. We recognize that this is not a faith-based organization, but we chose to act on our individual faiths by doing God’s work and serving others. We will demonstrate the pillar of learning by working with children from different backgrounds than we grew up in. Also, we will encourage the children to learn through mentally stimulating activities in a fun
In the beginning, the Children’s Bureau was part of the Department of Commerce, but was later transferred to the Department of Labor in 1913. The law that brought the Children’s Bureau into existence also called for the Bureau to be headed by a Chief, who would be a Presidential appointee,
Kid zone, the most family attracted location that provides fun for all ages. Setting up kid zone is really easy and we do it 2 hours before the game starts because gates open an hour and half before the first pitch. The bouncy house needs to be inflated, each game has to be set up, and also our main table where we sell tickets for a dollar each has to be brought in from the press box. Kid zone, the most enjoyable experience for kids of any age. Kid zone is located by right field and is filled with games and a bouncy house. Games such as fast pitch, bean bag toss, and corn hole. If you knock all the cans down, get over 60 in fast pitch and get one bag in, then you win a free ticket to a Jackal’s game. Kid zone can become a little bit crazy
Wonderful Kids Program, the destination families program also utilizes mental health services in the program. It has been shown that many of foster youth deal with mental issues “Seventy five percent (75%) of foster youth suffer from severe emotional disturbances” and additionally 65% of foster youth were evaluated as needing mental services but would rarely receive them ("The Foster Care Crisis."). The mental health team in the Destination Family program specifically focuses on teenagers and helps these teens process through their past loss and grief, attachment and bonding difficulties, along with support and stabilizing the teenagers. They also assist in preparing teenagers for permanency and helping them understand the importance of finding a forever family. The
The Powerful Forces of Art in All Good Children The definition of art is “The expression or application of human creative skill and imagination.”(Oxford Dictionaries). Art comes in many forms and not all art is a painting or a drawing. Throughout the book, characters use art skillfully, art is for survival and is a tool to withstand or to escape the corrupt government. Additionally, art is a powerful force that communicates messages through a picture. Furthermore, what allows art to have a powerful impact is that art is expressive. Their messages and stories are very powerful from the artist. In New Middletown, art is what helps Max withstand. In Catherine Austen’s All Good Children, art is a positive force in the novel.
The meaning this service learning project provided me with was how important it is for us, the Hamline University, to build a meaningful relationship with Hamline Elementary. This was invoked because of the impact the students seemed to have due to us being there and working with them. The students
To begin, I believe that Service-Learning helps one develop and hone their leadership skills. This world does and will always need leaders, and the young generation is next in line as the head of our society. These people need to be prepared to grab the baton from the previous generation and help fix and prevent many of the problems that previous generations have produced. If planned and executed properly, Service-Learning can

Service learning is a process of associating students with the community in significant service activities integrated with facilitated experience to their academic and personal development. College students can change the world in many ways. The best way to give back is through service-based organizations Such as, joining a cause, especially on campus, there are plenty of clubs and organizations to choose from. This assignment makes me nervous because this will be the first time I have gone to an educational event without a peer leader/instructor. Attending the senior health fair, I was most excited about meeting all the seniors and education them as much as I can. There are many things I can gain from this experience, such as communication skills and become more outgoing.
For the service learning project, I choose the school Archway, located in Atco, NJ. This is an alternative school. The students who attend it suffer a range of disabilities and each child has their own needs. Most struggle with behavioral issues and emotional disabilities. I believe this school is a good fit for this project, because it will give me a unique experience that I will not able to have at a public school. That is important for me, because I wish to eventually work in the mental health field, and observing at Archway will give me hands on experience of what mentally disabled children are facing, and how a professional trained in that field handles it.
