esearch indicates that scaffolding is always a best practice in the early childhood classroom. How can you develop (i.e., scaffold) an assignment that is geared toward a specific developmental age of a child? What would the assignment look like? What would you want the child to learn? Choose an age group. Describe that age group’s development: cognitive, physical, and socioemotional. Choose a skill you want the child to learn. Then, develop an assignment to help them learn that skill. Provide specific examples to support your thoughts.
Support your assignment with at least two scholarly sources. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly resources, including older articles, may be included.
