child to signal through words or sign language when he is done with his food. The solution would be praising the child when he let me know he was finished with his meals by saying, “Thank you, Jake. Thank you for letting me know you are finished with your meal.” The reason I chose this is because it reinforces rules, promotes social skills, and is age appropriate for the child. The Temper Tantrum is probably happening because the child is seeking attention. The guidance technique I would use is to ignore the behavior. The solution would be to allow Connor
to choose something he likes and share it with the class. I chose this because I do not want to encourage temper tantrums but I also want the child to know he is important. The “Mommy, don’t go is probably happening due to separation anxiety. The guidance technique I would use is to lower myself to Angela’s height and talk with her and let her know that her mommy will be back soon, but first we are going to have fun. The solution is to redirect her from the drop off and have her feel comfortable enough to start a new activity. I chose this solution because it would help Angela emotional in the long run. The bully is probably just frustrated she is tired from her school day and doesn’t know how to express her feelings. The guidance technique I would use is to let her know that bullying is unacceptable. The solution would be to talk with Jenny about her day once she arrives and to have an activity ready for her. I chose this solution because I do not want children being bullied but I don’t believe at this age Jenny really understands how hurtful she is being to her friends. Conclusion In this paper I have discussed developing age appropriate activities using Lincoln Logs and using the Montessori Method. I have explained how they are similar and different. I developed activities that will nurture and challenge my students to promote healthy growth and development. I also listed different learning techniques to promote healthy reading and writing to those with an intellectual disability, ADHD, physical disability, and speech delayed children.
