Joe Celone Child's Name: Vincenzo Camera Age: 3 years old Date: Jan. 23 Vincenzo is a shy, yet very well behaved boy. He always follows the rules and listens to his teacher. With my experiences with Vincenzo I have never had a problem with him. He would always clean up after himself when he needed to and did what he was told to do. The only reason why I would claim that Vincenzo is shy is because it takes him a little while to warm up to people, but that isn't a problem at all in children. Overall I would say Vincenzo is a polite, well brought-up boy.

Since I was Vincenzo's teacher for the day care center I seen Vincenzo grow very well physically. When I seen him play outside I can remember he would run and pick up a shovel and put it under a toy kitchen that we keep outside.

This shows Vincenzo's gross motor skills. Gross motor skills are how a child can walk, run, or sit. In other words, the way he moves his legs and back and other larger parts of the body. Vincenzo's fine motor skills are also very good too. Fine motor skills are the way a child uses him smaller body parts. Vincenzo loves to put smaller cars on bigger trucks. Whenever we are playing with the trucks he always tries to fit a bunch of smaller cars on a larger truck. This demonstrates fine motor skills.

Vincenzo also grew emotionally when he started the day care center. I remember the first day I had to be his teacher. He was so upset that his mother left. He cried so much that day. After about 20 minutes though he calmed down and we had some fun. Still when I see Vincenzo come into the center he seems a little reluctant to stay, but doesn't really cause a problem because he knows I am going to be his teacher. This is why I believe that Vincenzo grew a little emotionally attached to me as his teacher. This shows that Vincenzo has grown emotionally.

I have also seen Vincenzo grow socially as well. I haven't seen Vincenzo ever actually play with another child in the day care center. That is normal because most kids his age do not play with each other, but they do play near each other. Vincenzo is very observant. I can remember if Vincenzo and I were playing in the trucks station and another child came to play in that same station he would usually stop playing and watch the other child play. When the child left he would continue playing. As far as Vincenzo's social skills I would have to say he needs time to warm up to people before he starts to actually play with them. It took him some time before he actually started playing with me.

Vincenzo is a very smart boy. The first time I played with him we played with the blocks. I remember he would tell me what color block he wanted and I would get it for him. This showed me that Vincenzo knew all of his colors. His language skills are fine, but he didn't really communicate that much with me. It might be because he still might be a little shy around me. I did hear him talk though and what he said sounded fine. He is an intelligent boy for his age.

Vincenzo is a very polite boy. I never had a problem with him when I worked with him. He always behaved when I was his teacher and I had a lot of fun working with him. I am glad I spent my experiences as a teacher with Vincenzo as my child.
