FC: The Virtual Child Part 1 | You must allow children to learn and grow freely, with guidance and support to enhance their development.
1: On September 6th, 2012 I gave birth to a beautiful girl. We chose the name Annestacia. She is the love of our lives.
2: At the age of three months old Her Social and Physical development were far more advanced than her intellectual development. | Due to every child being different, their developmental milestones can be developed at different paces, and some area's can be stronger than others. | She tends to cry often displaying her strong vocal chords. She sleeps for few hours of the night, and can focus on objects and people around her.
3: She achieved her first big milestone. She is able too sit up with support. She loves crawling, and being around people. The development of a child allows insight into the type of child they are.
4: As a future educator early childhood educator, observations will help me understand whether or not a child has a disability or a behavioural problem. By observing a children it is easier to understand them. | By observing my virtual child I was able to see that stress at home can do damage on a child away from home. | The area's that need more work are easier to spot while observing children
5: By analyzing each developmental stage, I will be able to assess the child's growth guide the child through a healthy and safe learning environment. By analyzing the children I will gain an understanding on why they do certain things and how to fix or avoid them. Here is some information after analyzing my virtual child. | According to virtual child, "Annestacia scored in the above average range on tests of language comprehension and production, and provided unusually complete and grammatically mature sentences in a conversation the examiner and she had about a picture. She recommended several appropriate activities that might interest Annestacia such as going through a book without pictures and making up a story, or going to a children's museum and talking about the things that interested Annestacia there."
6: Having the chance to be the teacher, the parent and the child gave me the knowledge of what I am going to know while working with children. | This assignment allowed me to explore the role of a child, parent, and teacher. Watching as a child grows up and goes through their developmental phases. From infant to toddler.
7: Raising a Virtual Child has given me the opportunity to be a mother and guide my child through their early years. The most vital time of a child's life, their early development. This assignment has opened my mind to the possibilities of what can happen when working with children. Also the change and impact that can be left won a child.
8: They develop and grow so fast.
