This could make the child or young person feel upset, lost and nervous because they will now have to make new friends which may not be easy for some children and young people, if a child’s friend does move away its good to encourage them to go to out of school clubs this forces them to
Part 2: My classmates and I had similar responses to each other. Most of us believe that it’s important to have a structure schedule. By doing so, it helps the child sleep through the night without any issues. For example, Jennifer Rodriguez, said that she would apply a strict strict schedule and attempting to resolve the issue of why Manny doesn’t like sleeping in his room. Erik Cisneros mentions that she would attempted to have more activities throughout the day so that Manny would be able to sleep. I agree, a child’s day should be productive, that way they understand that they should be using their time correctly and resting at night. Natania Fernandez stated that there shouldn’t be naps involve so that he feels tired during the night
There is a good chance that I will be working with adolescents and so sleep is a very important concept for me to keep in mind. If they didn’t a good night sleep by not getting nine to ten
This camp was the push I needed to realize that I love working with children. Human interactions have become so interesting to me and I feel like I still have so much to learn about. This is why I chose Sociology as a major. It will be an interesting and beneficial major for me to study.
Short-term placements are typically anywhere from a day to a few weeks in length. These children can often be well behaved showing little or no signs of behavioral issues. Your home, family, and environment are all new and exciting for some children. You may be pouring out gifts and making them feel special. You have not yet had to discipline bad behaviors and so the child might see your home more as a vacation of sorts. You may not run into many behavioral issues if you chose to do short-term and/or respite
Working with children is my passion and findings ways to improve their lives would be a personal goal of mine. During my time at the summer camp, I also had the opportunity to be interact with children in the foster care system. Being exposed to some of those children and learning about their lives made me want to know more about foster care system and ways i can be involved in their lives. The camp also made me reflect on how important it is to educate children who have a family member/parent incarcerated. This population sees prison as normal and a way of life, it is important to provide a different way of thinking in order for them to make better
After this camp, I continued my volunteer hours by job shadowing at a nursing home for alzheimer and dementia patients. This helped me to know how to better communicate with not only younger children,
Obesity is a big problem in America so it would be smart to let kids sleep more to try to reduce this problem. There will be benefits in physical and mental health when students are allowed more time to
I first worked for Summer at Saints last year, as a volunteer unsure of what this experience would entail. Between the first drop-off and the final pick-up, I was quickly impressed, and to some extent intimidated, by its ability to transform. The timid became unafraid, the wild became calm and the rancorous became kind. The experiences of being a volunteer, and seeing these children mature, even in the smallest ways, has been the most rewarding experience at Summer at Saints.
Collaboration is required in order to have a successful learning environment. I also learned the importance of simple daily routine, such as mealtime and playtime and outside time or P.E. All of these activities promote more than play and exorcise. They promote social interactions, fine and gross motor skills, and functional and pretend play. I think it is important for a teacher to understand this importance. Another thing that I learned during my time of observation was the importance of being prepared. As a teacher, instead of just working with one or two children, I will be working and responsible for several children and being prepared is the key to providing an engaging and appropriate classroom experience. It is also important to be flexible and innovative. As a teacher, you have no idea what kind of predicament or situation you will be thrown into. As a future teacher I will take all the information that I learned while observing the camps and implement it into my skill set in order to be a competent and efficient Early Childhood Special Education
According to the American Camp Association, or the ACA, over eleven million children attend summer camp every year in the United States. Forty-seven percent of these camps are resident or overnight camps while twenty-eight percent are exclusively day camps. As for programs, eighty-seven of camps offer recreational swimming, sixty-seven percent offer camping skills, forty-eight percent offer climbing or rappelling, thirty-eight percent offer horseback riding, seventy-eight percent offer teambuilding exercises (which usually involve an outdoor ropes course), twenty-three percent offer farming, ranching, and gardening, and twenty-eight percent offer wilderness trips.

Columbia Elementary School Summer Care Program consists of kindergarten through 8th grade. The class I was able to observe was the 6th through 8th grade class. This program is for the students who are out of school for summer vacation. In the classroom I was in, there was about ten students and three teachers. Two of the students required one on one care therefore making the student to teacher ratio a bit excessive. The other classes had a larger student to teacher ratio, making it more difficult to handle. The two students that required one on one care had special needs that required special care. One of the special needs students had severe seizures and needed that one on one care and the other had down syndrome as well as other special needs that called for one on one care. The teachers were very good at caring for their needs throughout the day. They understood their behaviors and knew when something wasn’t quite right. I was able to experience many different behaviors among all grade levels while I was there.
