Curriculum Activity: Social and Emotional Development
Design an individualized, responsive, developmentally appropriate lesson plan for the social and emotional development of an infant (birth to twelve months), a toddler (twelve months through two years), and a preschooler (three through four years) in a template of your choice.
• Create a lesson plan template of your choice in a Word document for your response.
• Use APA format for the title page, references page, and in-text citations.
• Develop an introduction explaining the context of your lesson plans and a conclusion summarizing anticipated outcomes for each age level.
A good place to start is to expand the information provided on developmental charts. For instance, when it says provide interesting toys and materials for babies to handle and explore, be specific as to what specific toys and materials you would use and how you would use them to build social and emotional skills. You must have at least 2 activities for the domain at each age level.
Choose a title, and designate the age level for each group of activities.
You must have at least 2 activities for the domain at each age level.
Things to consider:
• What am I doing (the child)?
• How am I feeling?
• What am I learning?
• What will I do to support the child’s development and learning?
• What are responsive interactions?
Plans to consider:
• Songs, finger plays, music
• Stories, books
• Environment, toys, materials, opportunities
• Experiences with families
• Special experiences
Be creative in your activities, and be sure to properly document any sources you use.
Application: Curriculum Activity: Social Emotional
Most of the time we develop our initial concept from something we have seen, read, or heard, even if we ‘think’ we have come up with the idea on our own. It is expected that you will cite your source(s) in every assignment, using APA format.
Note: As I mentioned in a previous announcement, I would like to see more paraphrasing of information rather than direct quotes. You still have to cite your source, but I would like you to synthesize the information, putting it into your own words.
