Chapters 7 and 8 of your textbook describe stages of physical, social, emotional, cognitive, and language development in children 4 – 5 years of age and 6 – 8 years of age. Use the textbook in addition to the video provided with the instructions for this assignment as resources.

In your paper, 

  • Complete the sections of the corresponding developmental checklist, including the summary section, that you observed while watching your chosen video.

  • Summarize the typical development that you observed in the child (i.e., the areas that you were able to check off on the checklist).

  • Identify some developmentally appropriate activities you can do with the child to support at least two different developmental domains (physical, social/emotional, self-help, cognitive, language).
