|Observing Social Interactions activity||
ACTIVITY ID: 19761
In this activity, you will begin looking for social behaviors in children. Spend fifteen minutes observing a child or a group of children in your program, or in a colleague’s program. Write down the behaviors you see that are social (e.g., a child offers another child a toy) and the behaviors that might be signs that a child could use support around developing social and emotional competence (e.g., a child is excluding other children from play). Include social interactions between adults and the child, too. As you observe or after your observation, talk with your trainer, coach, or family child care administrator about how you could help the child learn or use social behaviors.
