Oklahoma Child Development Associate Curriculum: Learning Activities. Revised Edition.
Loveless, Susan Catlett; And Others
One hundred and twenty-four learning activities designed to give Child Development Associate (CDA) trainees many opportunities to practice and demonstrate knowledge of child development and related skills are provided in this training module. Section One of the module consists of 21 general learning activities that enable the trainee to develop specific skills in working with programs for young children. These basic activities can be used many times in different ways. Section Two provides specific learning activities in each of 10 CDA curriculum areas: growth and development, guidance, program planning, nutrition, health and safety, creative arts, cognitive skills, language and physical skills, parent teacher relationships, and special needs of children. It is recommended (1) that the trainer and trainee review both the general and specific learning activities in order to select those activities which best meet the needs of the individual trainee, and (2) that the number of activities to be completed and the specific criteria within those activities be adjusted to meet these individual needs.
