Parent Presentation

Partnership with families & communities
In Lincoln Elementary School the way to sustain partnerships with families
and the community is to arrange an open house so that everyone in the classroom can
meet each other parents and meet the teacher, to have parent teacher conference so
that the parent can get to know each and every child parent better and setting up
different activities for people to volunteer and lend a helping hand to others that may
need help.
According to Child Development when families slip into poverty, effective
parenting and childrens development are profoundly threatened (Berk, 2013). Since
many of these children are receiving free lunch there may be a possibility that some
children may have some difficulty learn but with these partnerships above they will
influence the learning and development of children by having each parent get to know
each other which may open doors for another parent to get any help they may need
from another parent that may not know. By meeting with the teacher this will help for
teachers and parent to stay on the same level and to get there child extra help in
different subjects if needed. And by creating different activities for people to volunteer
with this may help the children get extra help with learning the English because there
may be some people out there that is willing to give a helping hand to help with
learning to speak English. All of these partnership will help in some way or another.

Middle Childhood
The period of development this presentation is focuses on is
the Middle Childhood age. Middle Childhood children range
from 6 years old to 11 years old. Children in this period of
development usually can do things on their own, start to
understand more, and experience more things in life. As these
children become older they start to care more about how they
look, about their friendships and they are preparing their
selves for junior high school.
Role of Teacher
My role as a teacher is to make sure that I create a
healthy, happy and comfortable environment for the
children in my classroom. I will teach and help the
children with many subjects. I will make sure that the
students are happy and get a positive feeling while in
the class. I will monitor the children and make sure to
keep in touch with parents and guardians so that they
will know what is going on with their children
throughout the year.
The Mesosystem is one level of the ecological system. It is the interaction
between different relationships such as family, teachers, and friends.
According to Bronfenbrenner's Ecological Systems Theory of
Development The mesosystem is where a person's individual
microsystems do not function independently, but are interconnected and
assert influence upon one another. These interactions have an indirect
impact on the individual (Education Portal, 2014).
