    • Dear Claudia,

      This is a very detailed description. It highlights the child strengths and areas that they need support it.

    • Dear Claudia,

      I am Fascinated of reading the details about Ayden’s description because you  gave a clear explanation with details that guided me to improve how to write a child’s description.  
      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: Teachers try to assist him with relaxing his body and calming his emotions.” I think this strategy helps him to calm down and go back to doing his classroom work. All teachers have at least a child who shows this kind of behavior. I am happy to hear that the teachers bring strategies to help him feel much better.
      Another sentence that I Found interesting was: “He likes things to be his way and when they don’t, he gets these aggressive behaviors, throws himself on the floor. This sentence stood out for me because I have read in some of the posts the same aggressive behavior exhibited by children.
      Have you read that article on Behavior Modifications that you may be interested in?  I thought you might be interested in this because it present strategies that deals with changing the behavior of children
      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because this program will continue and we will keep learning about strategies on how to work with children in the classroom.    

    • Dear Claudia,I enjoyed reading your description of Jayden. Your description clearly shows his behaviors and areas where he needs support. It also shows that you have been working and observing Jayden for a while. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “He likes things to be his way, and when they don’t, he gets these aggressive behaviors, throws himself on the floor.” This stood out to me because it shows that he needs support regarding his social-emotional skills. Jayden needs help expressing his feelings. Since the child is so young, he will need direct instruction to learn strategies to manage that behavior. I like that the teacher assists him when he displays that behavior and has implemented strategies to help him calm down.  Another sentence that stood out was, “Jayden likes to play with boy A but can also allow others to join them while playing as long as they don’t touch with toys.” I have experience working with that age group and have observed similar behaviors in children. This shows that Jayden is in the cooperative stage of play, where children play with one another and engage in an activity.Have you read this article? https://www.notimeforflashcards.com/2017/02/how-to-handle-disruptive-behavior-at-preschool.html I thought you might be interested in this because it has strategies on how to handle destructive behavior in the classroom. This can benefit Jayden and the teacher since it offers other methods to help him self-regulate his emotions.Thank you for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because your description of the child’s characteristics was very detailed, and it shows the areas where he is thriving and where he needs more assistance.

    • Good job Claudia. Your article shows that you have been paying close attention to this student. It also shows that you have I identified the areas where he needs help which give direction on where to help him. Great choice of words when you said ” He needs to be encouraged to try other areas”. You did not say ” made to try or forced”. It shows that you have been caring towards this Child and trying to get him to explore other things in the classroom. Keep doing the great work you are doing.

    • one sentence you wrote that stood out to me was that jayden needs to be encouraged in order to try in other areas. this is important to me because i wonder what keeps jayden back from trying on his own.

    • Dear Claudia,
      I am surprised by her publication, “Jayden: Description of a Child” because although there are many children in the classroom, you know a lot about Jayden’s behavior.  When you describe just the behavior of a child, you can see the attention they give to each child, which is very impressive to hear. I can’t imagine how I could know so much about children, especially when there is more than one.
      One sentence you wrote that stands out to me is: “Teachers try to assist him with relaxing his body and calming his emotions.” This is something that amazes me because they try to help each day to improve and overcome things with which they have problems. For example, on some occasions, I have to take care of my two nephews,  which I think is a very difficult task and more so when you do not know what the problem is.
      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I wanted to know how you can pay so much attention to a specific child. I would like to know what else happens to children when they are cared for as each child is different. And I think that with your posts I could find a way to be able to pay more attention to my nephews and try to help them in any way I can.

      Nancy
