I usually talk to the child what he/she likes to do? Then planning happens for the child from there. For example: One child wanted to work on rainbow. Now whole planning of the week came from the child, like: draw a rainbow, colour a rainbow, cut the rainbow, make poetry and read story/book associated to rainbow. These all came from the child and we wrote that in the notebook. Towards the end of the week I heard child saying: “only aunty can draw rainbow”. This stayed with me for some time. I started thinking about my interactions with the child. How am I responding? How am I questioning? How am I giving idea? What message it is giving to child? I want to be more aware while talking to children.
How do I interact?
