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.
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.
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
Environment, toys, materials, opportunities
Experiences with families
Be creative in your activities, and be sure to properly document any sources you use.
It is one thing for a parent to want their children to grow up healthy and happy, but can they tell if their child is developing the right emotional and social skills? Social and emotional development is the ability of a child to control their behaviors and feelings, understand other’s feelings, and also get along other children.
