Child Study

Recommended Posts

I am trying to complete my child study for college, I have managed to do most of the PILES exept for physical development. I still have to write up my recommentations and type it up yet, good job I have got an extention but I am nearly there.

 

I am stuck for theory to back up what I am trying to say. I am right in thinking that phsyical development theory is the milestones on how children grow? :o Eather that or I am going loopy and looking in the wrong place. xD

 

I hope that you can help me.

Isn't physical development about gross and fine motor skills things like kicking a ball, balancing and hand-eye co-ordination? I'm sure that's what I did for my course work.

may be on the wrong lines completely - but I backed mine up with the importance of outdoor play, and how it can influence both fine and gross motor skills, and went in that direction with theory

 

but I know what you mean ----------clutcing on straws for the physical theorists!!!!!!!!!!

(it did help that I had a boy that needed outdoors as my target child!)

Beth it's so easy to sound knowledgable about something, but that was about the sum total of my knowledge and I had to go back to look that up. I guess it's a start knowing where to look! xD Hope it will have been some use.

Beth - you got my curiosity going. Did you find this book in your search. On a cursory glance seems rather detailed but on page 54 there is a table you might find useful.

http://books.google.co.uk/books?id=zKN7RVn...;hl=en#PPA54,M1

 

 

Gallahue talks about the reflexive movement phase from up to age one year, the rudimentary movement phase from birth to two years, the fundamental movement phase which is divided up into:

 

Initial stage - 2 to 3 years

Elementary - 4-5 years

Mature - 6-7 years

Specialized - 7 -14 years

I have finally finished this child study. I was having trouble with the computer late last week, good job the deadline is tommorow!

 

Now what can I do for the next 4 months, apart from running pre-school. I have a funny feeling that I will have lots of time on my hands and nothing to do!
