Module 8 Physical Development Activity #4: Self-Reflection

At the end of the semester you will develop a Self-Assessment of what you have learned which will help to determine your grade for ECE 209. In preparation for your Self-Assessment, answer the questions below; you will answer these questions at the end of each module so you have a record of what you have learned over the semester. You can answer the questions here on Open Lab or create a journal on Blackboard (which would be private).

  • What did you learn in the modules for ECE 209-Lecture and Seminar?

  1. After completing module 9 for lecture and seminar ECE 209, I learned about different yet effective ways in communicating with families who have infants that foster engagement and build partnership, I have also learned the importance of talking to families and how it offers teachers/caregivers like myself a chance to stayed apprised of children’s moods health, family, events and experiences as well as the out of school connections to friends and community along with being able to brainstorm how and why infant teachers can help support physical development of babies. Reading these article better prepare me to work with infants by allowing me to find better ways to share information with families because daily communication truly provides many wonderful opportunities to offer insight into children’s behavior and to explore helpful responses.

  2. After completing the modules for ECE 209-Lecture and Seminar I learned the relationship between a baby’s motor development and learning resulting in a permanent change in motor behavior due to experience. Movement connections to the brain development are essential to the neural stimulation needed for healthy brain development. Some activities that can support the physical development of a baby is hang an attractive safe mobile, make colorful yarn balls, crate a carpeted incline , provide a sturdy couch. Treating the baby like a human being, was one of my goals.

  3. I learned that children all have different ways in which they development and ways they can effectively learn based on their age groups. Certain activities can stimulate their development such as blowing bubbles and playing hand games.

  4. I learned how important movement is the children’s development. Movement is very crucial for a child’s development and if they do not have movement, they become containerized and are not developing properly.

  5. In this module session I learned how movement plays a key role in learning and development. I learned ways to encourage a child’s movement as well as their learning. I also gained insight as to how to observe better and things that I should be watching for.
