We would discuss what they think life on each planet would be like. I would also have the students go to another app NASA Kid's Club. On this app there is a game that the student's can play called Go to the Head of the Solar System. This is a game that asks about 10-13 questions to test the students knowledge of what they have learned. Since we are dealing with pre-school age students. I as the teacher would walk the students through this on their tablets by displaying it for all students to see and follow along.
Part C Manuel and Damien Latoya Tommy, Chuck, Muhammad Emotions the Students are Experiencin g Damien is feeling sad and upset because something he was using was taken away. Manuel doesn't seem to be unaffected by the whole situation. He got what he wanted. So he seems content. She may be shy around the other children, or she may be experiencing fear, she is afraid of the rock wall. Sounds like Tommy is having a hard time dealing with having two friends. He may feel torn between the two. Strategies for Children to Become Aware of their own Feelings and Feelings of Others Suggest that they try to work it out together, first by Manuel for taking the shovel, and then try to use their words to express to each other how they are feeling and how they can solve the problem together. Talk with Latoya and see if she will express why she is not joining in. If she is shy, maybe have another child introduce themselves and ask if they would play with Latoya. If she is afraid, find out why she is afraid. Maybe have other children talk about the first time they climbed the rock wall and talk about their experience of being afraid. Talk with Tommy and find out how he feels, and how he thinks he could resolve the issue. Listen to his ideas, if they will work, great. If not, maybe, as the adult make a few suggestions.
Solutions to Cope Effectively The children at this age should really be using their words to help solve conflict. Manuel should have asked to use the shovel, and Damien could have responded with how they can take turns and share the shovel. However, Manuel needs to be given a consequence for not asking properly in the first place. Again, find out why she is afraid. Discuss how fun it looks, and the other children seem to be enjoying it. Maybe suggest taking baby steps, start and the bottom and only go one foot up, and then two feet up. Have the other children help her out. If Latoya feels she has help with the wall, it may help her to overcome her fear. Work with Tommy on how he can use his words to problem-solve this issue. Maybe they can all three go to the movie, and spend the night together as friends. If that is not possible, maybe Tommy can spend the 2- 3 hours in the afternoon with Chuck at the movies, and he can have the sleepover with Muhammad that evening.
