Week 1DQ1In the classroom that I work I, being that it is a low functioning classroom,we only have one child that can talk the rest of the kids don’t talk. In order to helpthem out and make communication easier for them we try to teach them simplesign language to get through the day or we have different devices that we can useas communication devices. One strategy that we have found to be every useful isthat throughout the entire day we talk to the kids and try to have a conversationwith them. Even though they can’t respond to us we are still teaching them thevocabulary and associating words with other words and still teaching them ways tocommunicate with use even though it is in a different form.With these kids it may not have mattered much, but there are many kids thatwhen they are growing up, their parents don’t communicate with them or talk tothem which causes them to then struggle in school and communicating with theother kids in class and the teachers. It is vital for parents to be aware of the waysthat they speak to children and to fully understand that they are the first line ofteachers when it comes to helping their child with communication. Not all childrendevelop speech and language skills like stated previously. After reading thematerials for week I know have a better understanding of the different ways thatyoung children can develop oral language. The main goal that I can say I want formy classroom in the future is to encourage as much interaction as possible betweenstudents. As much as students learn from us as teacher’s they also learn a lot fromeach other as well. By having them interact with each other as much as possiblethis is then forcing them to communicate and then developing those fundamentaloral skills.
Word SearchTwo words that I am going to use in my post that I think go with the topicfor this week areINTERACTIONandFUNDAMENTAL. I chose these wordsbecause they are key to developing oral language. Interaction is essential betweenkids at a young age because these interactions between kids or adults or whoever itmay be are the steppingstones and building blocks for the skills that kids whilelearn over time. Fundamentals play into this concept because the fundamentals arethese building blocks that children learn from interactions with one another.DQ 2Teachers play an essential role along with parents when it comes to thedevelopment of language in children in early childhood classrooms. It takes sometime and effort to build a relationship where there is communication betweenparents and teachers to implement strategies to help expand the vocabulary of theirchildren. When looking at the developmental language levels of children fromnew-born to eight years old, families have the biggest influence on their child’soral communication by continuously talking to them and responding to them, havenormal conversations with them and get them to try and use their words to explain
