2 interpretation for each stories

All the children expressed their role play in very amusing way. Their emotions are apparent from the pretending of crying when one of the children shouted. Their communication is exhibited through the way they talked with each other during their role play. The engagement is observed through the act they are performing and cognitive abilities are evident from the words of Hannah of seeing a stone and Sara showing that she had control of the bus.

Emotions are evident from the excitement that both girls possess while making the gift cards. Their communication level is good as both try to share what they are making and for whom they are making. They seem to be engaged in a way they show their love for coloring and making cards. The cognitive abilities are depicted through the way Sophia fixed the problem of Amily who ripped the page accidentally.

Name of the play: Cardboard Box Activity-  we want to implement the activity base on this answers the questions. cardboard boxes are pretend as a sitting in bus and we have driver and police officer with traffic lights too.
 - Main inquiry (as noted in your interpretation):
Whether the 2 boys and 2 girls can enact a street scenario that includes moving buses, traffic police and signal system, whether the children use correct language model and whether the children enjoy the play. The roles of all the participants in real-life scenario are being displayed by the children. This will enrich the children’s sense of belonging, and interaction between themselves.

- Explain how the learning experience supports the children’s main inquiry and skill:

Children’s learning is enriched when they work with others to solve a problem or investigate an interest. Working with others exposes them to ideas of others which broaden individual understandings. Working jointly also improves relationship with each other.

- Describe your objectives and outcomes for children’s learning in your learning plan.

The learning outcomes will highlight that children have a strong sense of identity, children have connection with their world and can contribute to it, children can reflect on actions and consequences, can communicate needs, feelings, and ideas.
- Explain how your learning plan is authentic and meaningful.
Authentic learning is based upon authentic, relevant, and real-world tasks, students are actively engaged, and learning is closely associated with real world scenario outside of the class room. Here the setting is real-life street scenario which is beyond the walls of the class-room and students are actively participating in the play. Hence the learning plan is authentic and meaningful.
 - Describe how your learning plan will support children as they make connections between what they already know and what they are learning in your activity.
The learning plan will help children develop cognitive reasoning. The children have real-life experience which is being enacted through the play. The cognitive ability will help them connect between what they know and what they learn.
- Describe how children will be active participants in your learning experience
Children will be active participants in my learning experience as I will be able to observe their communication abilities and at the same time analyze their cognitive skills as well. Such as how they are able to solve any problem that they might face and how they will treat their other friends if they encounter any problem which is hard to solve. 

What teaching strategies will you use to support children’s inquiries? How will you encourage children to articulate and reflect on their thinking?
Active learning strategy will support children’s inquiries. Active learning is anything that the students do in the class-room rather merely listening to the teacher’s instructions. Active learning improves students’ retention of information and understanding. This also improves higher order cognitive skills required in problem solving and critical thinking. I will encourage children to reflect thinking through various games that specifically focus on Role play.
