Early Childhood Professions
Ms. Deb and Ms. "C"
Early Childhood Profession (Fall 2019)
We have huge celebrations in the E.C.P. room as we have given out over 100 state certificates to our students in areas of 1st Aid, CPR, Food Handler Card, Standard Precautions, Safe Sleep. These certificates allow your student to enter the early childhood workforce with certificates necessary for state licensing standards for employees.
This quarter is one that most of our students love. We will be entering our "baby simulation" unit the week prior to Thanksgiving break and will complete it the end of January. Students are not required to bring home the "baby' however, will be required to work with the "baby" during class time. More information to follow.
Special thanks are due the following students:
Session 1: Kielea Winder for taking initiative in our internship program.
Session 2: Norma Fuentes for her sense of humor
Session 3: Presley Rouse for stepping up and going above expectations.
Please remind your child that they will not be able to work in the lab unless they have passed the following expectations:
· Consistent attendance
· Excellent work ethic points
· Good academic grades
As always Ms. Deb is available via email at Debbie.Neill@d51school.org or after 2:30 via phone at 254-6000 ext. 21111.
Interactive Math Boards
Students learned that being prepared is a good thing when working with young children. We had interesting art projects which ranged from an "elephant with a moving trunk" to "finger painting letters of the alphabet".
The Early Childhood Profession students included professional vocabulary into both their lesson plans as well as their "hands on" presentation with the preschool children.
"Positive Constructive Feedback" was given to peers as they watched and shared their learning through this interactive project.
ECP students learned the importance of "Building Blocks" not only for the preschool children but also the importance of "Building" your classroom environment. A major fact they learned is that with a strong foundation of the "teacher/student" block you can weather the storms that are to come together.
Interns and Theory
Students are required to write a research paper which includes a strategy called "Mapping" to organize their thoughts and move their paper into a project of pride. They are using their personal observations of a few children at Kinder Haus and applying them in the body of their paper making reference to seven of the eight levels of intelligence.
