Too often, educators will have to handle different situations with one another and if one side is the child who requires more attention because more small , the other is what the great need of stimuli to develop the intellectual faculties. However, it is possible to have a class in harmony in kindergartens, giving some precautions on the character of each pupil and on the possibility of diversifying (to homogenize) an environment made up of children of different ages.
Take into account the age of children
The classes of a kindergarten can be made up of pupils whose age can range from two to three years up to five. The nurseries also include children under the age but in this case the teaching staff is composed of educators specially trained to handle infants at a very early age .
The child begins to develop cognitive faculties already from the second year, while at the third he begins to outline what is the aspect related to reason. If in a certain age group the child acts on stimuli, he subsequently adopts rational behavior. A kindergarten class can be heterogeneous and therefore made up of children of different ages, but whose needs can vary widely. In this case, the educator should never forget the age of each pupil, considering the needs that each child shows during school hours . There are special courses to prepare the educator for any eventuality and to adopt an attitude that is most in line with the needs of each pupil. In this way it will be possible to manage the class without losing the right attention to be given to each pupil.
Often we are led to create unique recreational activities that manage to involve all the children of a single class. The reason is clear: a single game does not involve energy expenditure and does not require a maximum effort in managing multiple groups, each of which plays something different .
So you often choose activities related to drawing , acting , using interactive gamesor materials that can teach the child the colors, shapes, solids. As mentioned above, children of different ages may have different needs related to the stimuli that each of them reveals with the behavior. If at the age of three the rational sphere begins to develop evidently, a two-year-old child acts on impulse without having full knowledge of the actions he is carrying out.
Recreational activities , as many experts advise, should be studied according to the age group of each pupil, creating small groups within which different activities take place. The groups should be made up of children of the same age, to avoid bickering or misunderstandings and to involve everyone in the game that the educator proposes.
The group formed by older children can take care of games related to a logical-intellectual activity , while the group formed by younger pupils could use different materials (such as plasticine or bricks) to stimulate sensory organs such as touch and view. especially towards the little ones, preventing accidents.
