Using Microsoft Word or Microsoft Publisher, create two posters that can be displayed in Birth to Age 5/Pre-K and K to Age 8/Grade 3 classrooms. The posters should outline your classroom guidelines for behavior expectations and consequences. Be creative and reflect the developmental level of each age group on the respective poster.
Design a schedule for both Birth to Age 5/Pre-K and K to Age 8/Grade 3 that includes a set of routines that are developmentally appropriate for each age group and that reflect a typical day (Birth to Age 5/Pre-K) or week (K to Age 8/Grade 3) in a classroom setting.
Your poster and schedule must demonstrate best practices for developing a healthy, supportive environment for learning that embraces the diversity of your students, addresses challenging behaviors/special needs, and includes families as partners.
GCU format is not required, but solid academic writing is expected.
Submit posters and schedules to the instructor by the end of Topic 5. They will be returned to you with instructor feedback for revision and final submission with the Benchmark Assessment due in Topic 7.
This assignment uses a grading rubric. Instructors will be using the rubric to grade the assignment; therefore, students should review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the assignment criteria and expectations for successful completion of the assignment
