Assignment Task Preparation: 

  • Research, then select an      instrument based on your research used for observing children at play to      identify a selected skill, developmental area, or other. Use this      instrument during your observations. You may elect to use the same      instrument, if appropriate, or select an instrument for each grade group,      but this instrument should measure the same skill or area for both groups      (total of two instruments, one for the younger group and one for the older      group).

Upon completion of your observations:

  • Reflect on your observation of      two different children at play. What developmental or emerging content      knowledge did you note? How do you know this is accurate?
  • Examine your notes and reflect on      the content. Were these accurate facts or were personal thoughts and      feelings reflected? How could you improve your personal observations?
