E01 Career in Early Childhood Education 2 Part A Using the major objectives identified in one of the four curricula discussed in Lesson 5 (HighScope, Creative Curriculum, Core Knowledge, or Tools of the Mind), create a short learning opportunity for a 5-year-old child in the kindergarten class that you teach. Begin by identifying three objectives that you might use for instruction. Once you have determined your objectives, determine what adaptations to the curriculum and to the environment you might make in order to reach these objectives. Next, write a plan of what special learning opportunities will prompt the child to explore and discover new ideas and that support reaching the three objectives chosen. Answer(s): I am going to use the HighScope curriculum to create a short learning opportunity for a 5 year old child in the kindergarten class that I teach. Types of Plants: 1. Vegetables 2. Trees 3. Flowers Objectives: • Students are to identify the types of plants • Students are to work together to create a plant wall • Students will discuss and decide on exactly how they will all build their art work. • Students will be instructed to give an oral presentation to the class explaining their art work. Material: • Colored Paper • Crayons and/or Washable Markers • Child safe scissors • Glue Sticks After reading the book and watching a short clip on: Oh say can you seed? By Cat in The Hat, the students will discuss the types of plants seen in the story. After the discussion, the student will be taken outside to explore around the school for plants that were seen in the pictures from the book and the short video clip. As they explore, they are to carry a notebook and pencil to note and draw new plants that were not show in the book and/or short video clip (discovering). Students will collect E01 Careers in Early Childhood Education 3
samples of the plants they have found back to the classroom. The teacher would’ve prepared beforehand and brought samples of plants that are not in the school garden. As the students settle down back into the classroom, the teacher will then assign three groups of students. The three groups with each have a name and each name is a group of plants, Vegetables, trees, and flowers. Samples of small tress will be shown and the teacher will explain just how those small trees grow into bigger trees but cannot be brought into the class due to the size. The teacher then will present a creative and colorful slideshow presentation to the students that includes pictures a brief description of these plates. Other plants taken by students will be grouped separatley and will be focussed on at another session to make it easier for the students. Each group of students, vegetables, trees, and flowers, will be given time to plan and discuss and have time to prepare but the teacher will give them support and give suggestions.
