Early Childhood Development and Curriculum
Select an age group of young children (0-2, 3-5, 6-8). Using your text and at least one additional resource, describe how developmental characteristics of this group influence curriculum decisions to best meet their needs and interests. Be sure to address the following areas of development: Physical, Socio-Emotional, and Cognitive. Within your response, give two to three examples of what surprised you and what confirmed your personal observations. In addition, complete the interactive game below that reviews accommodations for students with special needs and include ideas in your post that apply to the age group you suggested.
