Observation Report Form

Alex sat in the seat for 5 minutes before teacher told all the children that they needed to clean up and wash hands for snack time. Alex removed self from table and walked around the room for 2 minutes. Teacher then reminded students again to wash hands after they are finished cleaning up. Alex then walked over to the sink, turned faucet on, placed soap in hands, rubbed hands together and rinsed hands for snack time. Alex again walked over to the snack table, started to climb over the back of the chair to sit in it; teacher reminded Alex to sit in the chair correctly, Alex stopped climbing, pulled chair UT and sat correctly in the chair.

The teacher gave each student snack, cheese stick and juice, on the table. Alex said thank you to the teacher. Alex took a bite out of his cheese stick and observed another child pulling their cheese stick into strings and then started copying that child and eating the cheese stick in strands versus just taking bites out of the cheese stick like before. Alex ate all of snack, removed self from table and put cup in sink. IV. Section 2: Suggested Characteristics and Needs After the observation of Ale’s “Routine and Transition” into snack time, it is apparent that Alex is a very independent child.

Alex did need to be guided in to the correct order as to get ready for snack time. Alex did not want to clean up for snack time, Alex just wanted to go right into snack time. Alex did follow the steps from the teacher as to clean up, then wash hands.

Most episodes will show you more than 1 characteristic or need. Cover each characteristic or need thoroughly) V.

Section 3: Theoretical Frameworks (Have we studied anything in class that relates back to this? Look in your textbook at the theories of child development, how does your observation, suggested characteristics or needs relate to the theory? Every episode will relate to at least one theory, sometimes multiple theories. Must cite Beer here in PAP style. ) VI. Section 4: Strategies (What strategies would promote the child’s growth based on sections 1-3? You should list 3 strategies for each characteristic or need. ) VI’. References Page.
