Anecdotal Records II

Focal Children: Child A, Child M, & Child P

Child A

Child A, together with two more children  played “Simon Says.” Before they started playing the game, they were having an argument of who was going to be Simon. With a teacher’s guidance/help, they solved the problem by taking turns of who was going to be Simon.

Developmental Domain: Social Emotional

Developmental Significance: Child A was establishing  positive relationships with the two children by interacting and making friends. Child A also participated cooperatively and constructively in a group situation to solve their problem of who was going to be Simon.

Information tells me: Child A needs to see curriculum that encourages more group and problem-solving activities to enhance, and learn more problem-solving skills and to establish and sustain a longer positive relationships with the peers.

Child M

Counted the numbers 1-24 on the the calendar and was able to recognized number “42”

Developmental Domain: Mathematics

Developmental Significance: Child M used number concepts and operations by counting.

Information tells me: Child A needs to see curriculum that encourages Math activities to help him learn, recognize, and count bigger numbers.

Child P

Child P used a three-point grip with her right hand. She had a good grip and good control of holding the crayon while coloring a bug picture.

Developmental Domain: Physical (Fine-motor)

Developmental Significance: Child P demonstrated fine-motor strength and coordination by using a three-point grip with her right hand and manipulating the crayon (using a refined wrist and good control movements).

Information tells me: Child P needs to see curriculum that will level up fine-motor strength and coordination skills in order to develop better control and refined wrist movements.

Child M

Child M defined the unfamiliar word “camouflage.” He said ” Camouflage means blending in.” He pronounced the unfamiliar word correctly.

Developmental Domain: Language

Developmental Significance: Child A was using an expanding expressive vocabulary and conventional grammar by defining an unfamiliar word and using a complete sentence.

Information tells me: Child M needs to see curriculum that would help further develop his language skills such as his usage of grammar and learning more new vocabulary words.

Child P

Penelope copied words such is OIL and ITALIAN on her word book. Before she wrote the word OIL, she asked Michael “What is this word O-I-L?” After Michael answered her question, she asked him another question about what he was doing (cutting bread and adding oil on the bread).

Developmental Domain: Language and Literacy

Developmental Significance: Child P was using language to express thoughts by using conventional grammar;  and using appropriate conversational and other communication skills by engaging in conversations with Michael. Child P was also demonstrating knowledge of the alphabet by identifying and naming letters.

Information tells me: Child M needs to see curriculum that encourages language and literacy developments in order further her communication skills and to help her learn more letter in the Alphabet.
