True or False... The two units for August are "Fair Time Fun" and "Back to School."
It is very important that you evaluate the children's level of knowledge before starting any new unit. Thinking about the upcoming unit about fairs, which of the following could you do to help you better understand what the children already know about fairs?
Say something like, "Tell me about a time you went to a fair."
Read a book about a fair and ask questions about the children's prior experiences.
Post pictures of fairs on the walls and as children show interest, ask them questions about them.
All of the above
The second unit for August is focused on friendship. It is important to understand that different developmental levels engage with other children in different ways. Toddlers, for instance, engage most frequently in parallel play. Which best describes parallel play?
Playing together and assuming roles
Playing side-by-side but interacting very little
Assuming a leadership role during activities
None of the above
Which of the following is not an aspect of the area of language development?
Nonverbal Communication (e.g., gestures)
These are all parts of language development
True or False. It is VERY important to talk to infants, toddlers and nonverbal children even though they do not talk back.
Which of the following is NOT a good way to help children build strong listening skills?
Playing a game like, "Simon Says"
Having a Freeze Dance - Playing music and then stopping it. Children stop when the music stops.
Reading a book out loud to children
These are all good ways to help children build listening skills
Asking open-ended questions is a big part of the Gee Whiz curriculum because it encourages children to engage in conversations instead of giving one word answers. This is critical for helping children build strong language skills. Which of the following is NOT an example of an open-ended question.
What did you do to keep your block structure from falling down?
What color is your truck?
What do you think is going to happen when we add ice to the water table?
Why do you think the water and oil did not mix?
True or False... In the Gee Whiz curriculum, when an experience is child-directed, you do not interact or engage with children at all.
Reading books to children is very important but maintaining a classroom library can be challenging and expensive. Where could you go to look for books to share about the two August units (Fair Time Fun! and Back to School)?
Library (take the Book List and ask the librarian to help)
Parents/Guardians - they might have books to loan
These are all good options for locating books
During the unit, "Back to School," one of the experiences invites children to create using their favorite art materials. Which of the following would NOT be appropriate for Toddlers, Twos or other children just beginning to develop fine motor control?
Thick markers and crayons
Small, thin paintbrushes
Stampers with large handles
