Answer:

Anecdotal Observation

Child’s name: Lilu

Date:

Setting:

 

Observer:

Observation:

Observation 1: In the given scenario Lilu is shown trying to solve a puzzle. Here Lilu wishes to make a tower. She starts making a tower and also calculates along with the act. Lilu later could not find box no. 2 and seemed anxious. It seemed to Lilu that the box may be lost Observation 2: Lilu concentrates on drawing puppets at her home. While she talks she also talks with her partner beside her.

Observation 3: Lilu walks and also talks with her dad. She is very happy meeting her friends. She asks Mary whether she is allowed to wave at her parents.  

Observation 4: Lilu shows her cognitive nature as she is seen involved in thinking and creative work. She also shows her physical strength as she spins with the help of twisted rods, she moves here and there very quickly

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Interpretation, including developmental skills, concepts and dispositions/links to theory:

Lilu shows anxiety as she could not find puzzle number 2. This shows that Lilu is a conscious child and is worried about finishing the task that she has been assigned. This puzzle solving case can be linked to the cognitive stages of development for a child (Riddall-Leech, 2009). As Lilu keeps on trying to solve the puzzle, she is now no more worried about making a tower but she is more careful about finishing the entire thing with perfection (Wakelyn, 2011).

When the cognitive stages theory is applied to the case of Lilu it could be observed that she has crossed the sensorimotor stage where they work mostly with the help of sense organs and also preoperational stage where they struggle to learn and acknowledge the theory that has been involved (Riddall-Leech, 2009). She is operating in the concrete operational stage where she can apply logic and is being able to channelize her actions according to her own observations (Riddall-Leech, 2009).

Lilu is socially very active and also seemed to be a very obedient child.

Lilu showed that she is very active physically.

Possible future planning:

In future Lilu should be given lessons on numerical and good education. In every scenario lilu learns very quickly and physical strength is also good. Lilu needs a proper guidance to culture some more brain storming situations which could help to mature her brain.

She should start to count some tasks quickly, has a sense of good and bad. Also needs to start some practice to read and write from pictures and books.

 

 

Learning Story

What happened and who was involved:

Lilu, a three year old is involved and she is a very active child who participates very well in the surroundings. Lilu knows that to build a tower she has to increase the height of the blocks and after every box added she express her cheerfulness which shows her activeness in her task. When Lilu draw puppets her concentration was not breaking while talking with her partner also shows the cognitive property of Lilu. The emotional part of Lilu is find out when she wants to wave her hands to her parents when they dropped her in her friend’s house. Lilu also get emotional when her dad leaves her in their house and she says him good bye and expecting that her father will pick her up at the same time like as before. Lilu shows her Physical strength when she plays in the park and every time she is so active which clearly indicates her physical ability.

Analysis (interpretation) of learning:

 Lilu started her learning of numbers when she makes a tower and same time pronounce the exact number written in the blocks. She also learns the social formalities by asking permission from her friend’s parents to wave her hands when her parents leaving. In the process, it is analyzed how Lilu learns to communicate well with her surroundings and also mental and physical growth of Lilu has been analyzed when she used to play in the park and convey her mother what are the different task she wants to do one after another. Learning of Lilu by playing in the field is also a good sign of her level of development.

Planned Experiences

Apply the knowledge you have gained from the observations and developmental summary completed on ‘Lilu’ to:

a) Write up two (2) experience plans to support ‘Lilu’s’ development, you may choose to implement an experience or set up a learning centre based on the information collected about the child
 
One (1) experience plan must be for the indoor environment.

One (1) experience must be for the outdoor environment.

One plan must aim

• to promote children’s creative expression,
• to provide an opportunity for you to share an example of creative expression in art, architecture, inventions, music or dance.
• to provide an opportunity for you to teach children techniques when using materials and equipment

Both plans must include a creative transition to and from the experience or learning centre.

Please note for each of these two (2) experiences you will NOT be implementing them so you will NOT need to complete the ‘evaluation/ reflection’ section or the ‘follow up ideas’ section of your Experience Plans, these have been ‘greyed out’ in the experience plan template below.  All other sections must be completed.

Equipments like blocks, puzzles are helpful for indoor activity also giving water to the plants in the garden area painting in the walls of the house all leads to help them to grow their psychological as well as physical activities. The environment is a basic factor to improve the mental as well as physical ability of a child.
