Part One: Expectation and Consequences Posters

Create two posters that can be displayed in Birth to Age 5/Pre-K and K to Age 8/Grade 3 classrooms. The posters should outline your classroom guidelines for behavior expectations, reinforcers, and consequences.

Be creative and reflect the developmental level of each age group on the respective poster.

Part Two: Schedules

Design a schedule for both Birth to Age 5/Pre-K and K to Age 8/Grade 3 that includes a set of routines that are developmentally appropriate for each age group and that reflect a typical day (Birth to Age 5/Pre-K) or week (K to Age 8/Grade 3) in a classroom setting. Include family volunteers.

Each poster and schedule are to demonstrate best practices for developing a healthy, supportive environment for learning that embraces the diversity of your students, addresses challenging behaviors/special needs, and includes families as partners.

You may use Microsoft Word or Microsoft Publisher.

Details:

Using the Blogger website or a similar site, create a new blog. Post your blog address to the Topic 6 Main Forum.

Research practicing teachers’ websites for ideas and strategies on classroom arrangement, structure, activities, and organization. Choose four favorites and create a blog entry, summarizing the virtues of the chosen sites. Include the following as part of your blog:

  1. List the specific examples you have located and justify why they are outstanding examples of supportive learning environments for young learners.
  2. List the website addresses. If the teacher provided an email, you may want to write a short thank you and acknowledgement for sharing their ideas so freely. This is not required as part of the assignment, but preferred in order to recognize the work of others in the field.
  3. Review at least two other student blogs and discuss with your classmates, within the blog, the merits of the websites or why you may not agree that the chosen site is a good example.
  4. In addition to the blog entry, create a chart, table, or matrix that presents your detailed analysis of the websites.

Do you agree with the theory that the first level of mistaken behavior is due to a child experimenting with or exploring limits, ideas, and involvement? How would you support a child at this level of development?
