What a great website from the Department of Education and Training shared by Barb in our EDC3100. Building relationships with young children is so important. I noticed my Year 1 Mentor Teacher speaks to the children with excitement tones in her voice, is expressive and responds to all their efforts. These interactions are motivating and engaging, playful and challenging, spontaneous and important and involve challenge and support. (Department of Education and Training, 2015).
I am very excited now with only a week to ago before professional experience.
