Challenging   Classroom Behaviors

 Chapter 9 of your course text addresses the following topics:  

  • Behavioral health as it       pertains to a child’s set of behaviors that are in response to early       experiences and actions of others. 
  • Emotional development as it       pertains to a child’s increasing ability to express emotions       appropriately. 
  • Social development as it       pertains to the growth of a child’s capacity to have relationships and to       work cooperatively in the future (Groark & Song, 2012). 

Create a visual and written plan for a parent bulletin board that you will place on a large wall outside your classroom which parents will see when they enter your facility.  
 

For this discussion, the written plan will include:

  1. An explanation of behavioral      health, emotional development, and social development at your specific      developmental level.  Be sure to identify the developmental level in      the subject line of your discussion.  For example, your subject line      will read as one of the following: 
    • Infant Parent Bulletin Board 
    • Toddler Parent Bulletin Board 
    • Preschool Age Parent Bulletin       Board 
    • School Age Parent Bulletin       Board 
  2. Common characteristics of      behavioral health, emotional development, and social development at this      level.
  3. Specific ways you are supporting      this development in the classroom. 
  4. Specific ways parents can      support this development at home. 

Please also provide a visual plan of this bulletin board through use of an uploaded picture, scanned image or other electronic creation.
