Question Description

I’m studying for my English class and need an explanation.

Consider the following learning activities: putting together a jigsaw puzzle, sorting blocks of various shapes and colors into groups, and looking at a picture book.  What are some questions and guidance a caregiver could use to scaffold a child’s learning in each situation?

Consider each of the five characteristics of preoperational thought: perception-based thinking, unidimensional thought, irreversibility, transductive reasoning, and egocentrism. Name an activity for each that a preschooler could be encouraged to do to move to a higher level of thinking for each characteristic.

  1. Name ways in which preschoolers use symbolic thought in play, reading, and writing.
  2. What are some ways that teachers can make accommodations for cognitively challenged students in the classroom?
