Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    At 2 to 4 years old Children should be able to

      Write a story

    • B.

      Discuss a book

    • C.

      Scribble

    • D.

      Create detailed writing

    Correct Answer
    C. Scribble
    Explanation
    At 2 to 4 years old, children are typically in the early stages of developing their writing skills. They are still learning how to hold a writing tool properly and control their hand movements. Scribbling is a common and important stage in their writing development as it helps them practice hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills. It allows them to explore and experiment with making marks on paper, which eventually lays the foundation for more controlled and detailed writing in the future.

    Which of the following is NOT what a teacher should look for when observing Infants and Toddlers Creativity

    • A.

      Development of a positive self concept.

      Concepts

      Religion

    • D.

      Decisions

    Correct Answer
    C. Religion
    Explanation
    When observing infants and toddlers' creativity, a teacher should not focus on their religion. This is because religion is a personal and individual aspect of a child's life that should be respected and not judged or evaluated in terms of their creative development. Instead, a teacher should look for the development of a positive self-concept, the understanding and application of concepts, and the ability to make decisions as indicators of creativity in infants and toddlers.

    • C.

      Complex art like a computer system

    Correct Answer
    A. Simple art like the Sun
    Explanation
    A sign of early stage drawing is simple art like the Sun. This is because in the early stages of learning to draw, individuals tend to start with basic shapes and simple objects. Drawing a simple object like the Sun requires minimal detail and complexity, making it a common choice for beginners. As artists progress and gain more experience, they tend to move on to more complex subjects and techniques, such as murals or intricate drawings of computer systems.

    Piaget believed that children should have some type of support.. also known as "scaffolding"

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Piaget believed that children should have some type of support, but he did not use the term "scaffolding" to describe it. Instead, Piaget used the term "assimilation" to explain how children incorporate new information into their existing knowledge. He believed that children actively construct their understanding of the world through their own experiences and interactions. So, the statement that Piaget used the term "scaffolding" is false.

    Correct Answer
    B. Expression of child's thoughts
    Explanation
    Work samples can be a good way for children to express their thoughts and ideas. By creating and sharing their work, such as artwork or writing, children can communicate their feelings and perspectives. This allows others, such as parents or educators, to gain insight into the child's thoughts and understand their unique perspective. Work samples can also serve as a form of documentation and storage, allowing for reflection and future reference. It is important to note that work samples alone may not always provide a complete picture and can lead to erroneous conclusions if not considered in conjunction with other factors.

      Displaying in classroom student work without competiton.

    Correct Answer
    D. Displaying in classroom student work without competiton.
    Explanation
    Displaying student work in the classroom without competition is the best example of positive reinforcement because it creates a positive and supportive learning environment. By showcasing students' work, it promotes their self-esteem and encourages them to continue putting effort into their assignments. This form of reinforcement focuses on recognizing and celebrating their achievements rather than comparing them to others, which fosters a sense of pride and motivation among the students.

    During the ages of 0-2, children are in the early stages of their cognitive and motor development. At this stage, they may not have the fine motor skills required to draw complex shapes like a mandala or a tadpole man, or the language skills to make a sentence. However, they are likely to be able to make marks, which is a precursor to drawing and writing. Making marks allows them to explore and express themselves creatively, which is an important developmental milestone during this age range.

Blocks can be stacked, sorted, and arranged in different ways, encouraging experimentation and innovation. They also promote social interaction and collaboration when used in group settings. Overall, blocks provide a versatile and engaging platform for individuals to express their creativity and develop important cognitive and social skills.

By establishing trust, teachers can establish strong relationships with their students, which can lead to better communication, increased motivation, and improved academic performance. Building trust involves actively listening to students, showing empathy, being consistent and fair, and creating a supportive and inclusive classroom environment.

    Social Interaction, Toileting, eating and sleeping disorders can be reasons for separation difficulties

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Social interaction, toileting, eating, and sleeping disorders can all contribute to separation difficulties. When a child is struggling with these issues, it can make it more difficult for them to separate from their caregiver. For example, if a child has difficulty interacting with others or has trouble with toileting or eating, they may feel anxious or uncomfortable when separated from their caregiver. Similarly, if a child has sleep disturbances, they may have a harder time adjusting to being apart from their caregiver. Therefore, these factors can all contribute to separation difficulties.

A teacher is often seen as a moral leader because they guide and shape the values and behavior of their students. They teach not only academic subjects but also important life lessons and values. Therefore, the word "moral" accurately describes the role of a teacher as a leader who imparts moral values and ethics to their students.

The purpose of an anecdote is to provide an accurate record of the events and behaviors observed, allowing for an objective analysis and evaluation of the teaching and learning process.

It is important to respect the privacy and confidentiality of a student's work and only share it with other teachers if there is a legitimate educational purpose or if the student and their parents have given consent. Sharing without a valid reason or consent would be a violation of the student's privacy rights.
