Early Childhood Education Classroom Discussion


Technology in an early childhood classroom enhances the learning experience by providing children with variety in the program, highly interesting experiences, and yet another opportunity to exercise their creativity. TTo relate to Chapter 9, Creativity and Technology, explore the Jelly Cam Hanging Art website or the Storybook website and share your thoughts on how you could use either of these sites with children to inspire art projects.
Jelly Cam Hanging Art:  Go to the Monterey Bay Aquarium website to view the “Jelly Cam,” a webcam that streams activity from their jellyfish exhibit.

My Storybook: Go to the My Storybook website, which provides books made by children around the world. 

2. Science activities provide children with knowledge about the world around them through active investigation. In essence, the process of investigating is more important than the knowledge gained To relate to Chapter 15, Creative Science, try one of the following projects (ideally with a child) and attach a photo, audio, or video file showing what you did with a couple of sentences that describe the activity and either your reaction (or child’s reaction if this was a student-led activity done with a child), 
Go to the Playdough as a STEM Activity website and try out any one of the activities and submit a photo to this forum with a couple of sentences describing your experience,  
Solar System Song: Create a song to learn the order of the planets or some other science concept. Record the song and share it in this forum,   
3. Mathematical concepts should be a natural part of early childhood programs; however, we must be intentional about designing activities that teach math concepts. There are many fun ways to tap into children’s creativity.
Watch this video and try one of the activities and submit a photo of it and a couple of sentences describing the activity or your experience with it,
Unit 8.1 DB: Building Trusting Relationships to Help Children Thrive.  HOME,SCHOOL AND COMMUNITY
Unit 8.1 DB: Building Trusting Relationships to Help Children ThriveIn your posts, reference resources and strategies that you learned about in the Unit 8 readings and resources. In your initial post, use the “No Small Matter” documentary to describe two essential factors that children need from families and early childhood educators to help them thrive? As a current or aspiring early childhood professional, what strategies will you use to establish a trusting relationship with families to help support their children’s growth and development? How do these strategies build trust?  In response to your peers, reflect on the “No Small Matter” documentary. Expand on ideas and strategies shared by your peers. Expand on ideas posted by peers by providing additional thoughts about how early childhood educators can support families and their child’s development to help children thrive. 
Unit 8.2 DB: Toxic Stress and Strategies to Support Children.   HOME,SCHOOL AND COMMUNITY
Unit 8.2 DB: Toxic Stress and Strategies to Support ChildrenStress is part of everyday life for babies and young children that can have negative impacts if toxic. After reviewing the Unit 8 Readings and Resources, respond to the following in your initial post. Pay particular attention to the high-quality classrooms you observed in “No Small Matter” to address the following:
List examples of signs a young child may exhibit as a result of stress.
Describe an example of a young child who experienced stress. Your example can be an experience from an ECE setting, one that you experienced as a child, or an experience you have heard of. Please maintain privacy in your example by using fictitious names and places of employment, if appropriate.
How did you or how would you help the child in your example cope? What connections do you see to the Strengthening Families Protective Factors? If this is a personal childhood experience, did someone take steps to help you cope? If yes, what were those steps and if not, what would have helped you cope?
In response to your peers, expand on ideas posted by peers by providing additional strategies that early childhood educators and professionals can support children during stressful events. How can we involve families and gain their trust and support during times of stress? 

Unit 8.1 DB: STEAM ActivitiesSTEM is more than just the four subject areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. It is a holistic approach to the educational experiences that you provide in your classroom. Discovery is seldom in just one subject area, rather it involves integrated approaches that include music, the arts, social skills, and reading.Select one of the STEM subject areas and, using your topic, describe a topic-related activity that combines the STEM area that you selected with an art element.What role does the art segment of the activity play in enabling the children to grasp the lesson concept(s)?Imagine that you are extending this activity to include all of the families in your class and the larger community. What strategies could you use to engage families and the community in your class STEAM activity? Be creative and think big!In your follow up responses, help your classmates with ideas to make their family and community STEAM activity even bigger and better! Discuss how your STEAM activities, and arts/art related activities in general enrich STEM learning for children and families.

Unit 8.2 DB: Teacher Roles and AttitudesAs we discussed in our introductions, many of us have math anxiety or we may have insecurities about our abilities to do science, use technology, or solve problems through engineering. Many times, the interactions we have with children and their families can help us change our thinking toward these subject areas. In this final discussion, reflect on how your attitudes have changed about each of the STEM areas. Share readings and resources, activities, assignments, or discussions that you completed in this class that changed your feelings towards or attitudes about STEM. Discuss steps that you plan to take to build on what you have learned in this class about early childhood STEM. Present two (2) strategies that you will use to support equitable and culturally-responsive classrooms for all children as they develop skills in science, technology, engineering, and math.With your classmates discuss the impact that teacher disposition towards STEM has on children. Share techniques that teachers can use to promote positive disposition and child achievement in STEM-rich classrooms.
Final Discussion: Course ReflectionAfter having the opportunity to complete the course, what would you change and why?  What topic particularly caught your interest and what do you want to know more about?  Last, but not least, if you could share with the next class one piece of advice about this class, what would it be?  Please note that this pertains to the class, the materials, flow/organization, etc.Thank you and good luck on your educational journey!
