Running head: PLAN 1Unit Plan Project-Children learn culture, values, the difference between cultures, individuality and so much more using storytelling, poetry, song and printed text (Coats, 2013). This week we will be using children literary and activities to learn all about bears. Student’s will be learning about the letter B and it’s sound, how to determine the setting from literacy pieces, colors, sequencing, and counting.Kindergarten children aged between five and six year are curious about learning different things. Kindergarten is important for children as they are usually first introduced to being in a classroom, teachers that provide children with a literacy filled room can help their students be successful as they build on language and knowledge. Kindergarten children still use play to learnas they work socially together to build onto what they already know. They are curious to what will happen next in a story and often are ready to tell you a story they read. The stage of development that this week’s lesson plan focuses on is preoperational which includes ages 2-7-year-old. The preoperational stage of development in mind, the theorists that follows my beliefs and improved development of my students is Jean Piaget. Piaget had a model of intellectual development that he believes children grow from physical development (Coats, 2013). Children during this stage of development can make sense of objects, characters, events, places and what they are feeling. Piaget believes that children organize their experiences into categories that could help with early concept books and concept books (Coats, 2013). Assimilation is when new information that can be gained from previous learned as for accommodation is when new information can’t be made from previous knowledge learned. “Children are born with a very
