If playing shops they should be able to push the trolley and walk at the same time. Be able to kick a ball independently. Showing control when pouring milk/water into a cup. Start making lines and circles when scribbles during mark making. Making bigger towers.
7-14 years --- By this stage, children have stable friendships, enthusiasm when given areas of responsibility and clear different activities between boys and girls.
Goes through physical changes at this age, as this happens they become more mature, and as they begin to show interest and skills in different subjects as their confidence grows through communicating effectively with adults.
| By this age the child likes to begin to explore and they are able to respond to the simple directions that they are given, can group objects by category, are able to stack rings on pegs in the order of the size (big to small), able to recognize themselves when looking in the mirror and finally they still like imitating more complex adult actions for example housekeeping play.
*Social and emotional development: at this age the child becomes more independent and confident, they like to help adults, they start sharing with other children, and considering other people’s feelings.
At the age of 4 children's memory develops and they begin to remember a lot more for example songs and parts of favourite stories. Starts to problem solve wondering what will happen. Sorts objects into more complex groups.
Later on I observed him at home and how he interacted with his mother, he used his “big boy words” as his mother called it. When he wanted something he just asked politely and in a manner suitable to his age.
In the aspect of speaking and his development, he is able to build on vocabulary that accommodates and reflects on his past experiences. He is also able to talk in pretending objects are something
I did not take a long time or distract him so he can still remember that I had an object. This supports Piaget discovery which consists of the kids have a tendency to look for the objects in the same old place. This brings me to Phil’s temperament. When Phil becomes upset it is difficult to soothe him down. He sometimes accepts my embraces and sometimes pushes me away. I do not like when he pushes me away because I want him to know that I will support him at all times. When I focus on the five aspects of temperament I realized he is able to play games and try to observe all over the place. Sociability he is getting used to the caregivers while it was difficult at first. Emotionality I believe he can sense how much he is cared for that may cause him to get a tantrum once in a while. He is in between both he is sort of aggressive and cooperative with me. He truly has self-control. At least his temperament has been stable for 18
Most young children develop language rapidly, moving from crying and cooing in infancy to using hundreds of words and understanding their meanings by the time they are ready to enter kindergarten. Language development is a major accomplishment and is one of the most rewarding experiences for anyone to share with a child. Children learn to speak and understand words by being around adults and peers who communicate with them and encourage their efforts to talk.
At around age 2 , the children 's ability to use language significantly improves. Their ability to string up words to make sentences and their vocabulary knowledge is improved. THeir ability to describe their environment and come up with representative language shows up the same time when their ability to imitate and represent improves as well. During the early years of 2-3 children require a combination of participation and an accepting environment to fully explore their potentials of learning the language. Most of times expressive complex speech and sarcasm fall to deaf ear as the child take it literally or have no knowledge of the complex vocabulary. Due to the little social knowledge and egocentrism of most young children indirect requests also seem to confuse them. At around the age of 4, children starts to develop understanding of more pragmatic rules. One example is the ability to speak politely which is a cognitive sign that they now can understand the viewpoints of others.
“Children develop language according to an invariant sequence of steps or stages” (Shriner & Shriner, 2014, 6.2 Infants par 2). At 12 months an infant will begin echolalia and intonation then evolving to a vocabulary with over thirty words by 24 months. In early childhood
An 18-month-old should be using at least 20 words, this includes nouns, verbs, prepositions, adjectives, and social words, by the time they are 24-months-old the toddler should use at least 100 words and should generate a combination of 2 words together (Lowry, 2012). Lowry (2012) indicated that “memorized chunks” do not count as 2-word combinations. Examples given by Lowry (2012) are “doggie gone”, “eat cookie”, or “dirty hands.”. If a child expressive vocabulary is less than 50 words then they are considered to be a LT due to the criteria (Kouri, 2005).
