seriation are essential phases that are responsible for a child’s cognitive progression. (Berk. E Laura, 9th ed ,2013 p.252) Seriation is the ability to group objects based on height, weight, and/or importance. Anthony was able to put objects in order from short to tall, small to large. Seriation is very important concept to master for children to learn in school. (Berk. E Laura, 9th ed ,2013 p.250) Cognitive Development: Numbers, Time, Space, Memory Counts by rote to ten I ask Anthony if he can count to twenty. He started counting and made it to 30 Counts objects to ten Anthony’s mom asked him to pack away all the blocks from the floor and he started to count them as he put them in basket. When he got to thirty he stopped. Knows the daily schedule in sequence Anthony was having lunch and his mom ask what him what he wanted to do after lunchtime. He says “quiet time in my room for 30 minutes” Remembers what happened yesterday On one of my visits I asked him “how was his day yesterday?”. He replied “I was at Max house for playdate and then went out for lunch with nana and papa”

CHILD GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT PROJECT 11 Can locate an object behind or beside something Anthony’s train fell off his train table. He used his hockey sick to pull the train from behind the table. Memorizes words to songs/rhymes During Sunday School, Anthony knows all the words to the songs they sang in class. He also volunteered to lead the class for singing time Remembers actions and directions of games Anthony and his family like to play red light, green light. He understands green means “go” and red means “stop”. His mom adds another colour to the mix and he follows direction quite well Cognitive development is very crucial in the development of a child. In my observation Anthony has achieved these cognitive development milestones. According to Piaget, young children go through two distinct phases or sub-stages in cognitive development during this stage. First, they develop Symbolic Function between the ages of 2 and 4. During the Symbolic Function sub-stage, children master the ability to picture, remember, understand, and replicate objects in their minds that are not immediately in front of them. In other words, children can create mental images of objects and store them in their minds for later use. For example, Anthony can remember travelling to visit his Grandma in California. He also remembers what he did yesterday and remember actions and directions of games. (Berk. E Laura, 9 th ed ,2013, p.239- 250) Spoken Language Speaks confidently Anthony, his brother and cousin were having lunch when Anthony confidently told his mom “I will take all the plates of the table to the sink”. After lunch he placed the plates in the sink and his mom says “thank you Anthony you are such a good helper” Speaks clearly enough for adults to understand On every visit to Anthony’s house he always walks up to me and says morning/afternoon “am happy you are here to have a play date with us” Takes part in conversations with other children Anthony likes to play hide and seek with his cousins. When everyone agrees to play and is in place, Anthony shouts “ready or not here I come”

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
