Synopsis: This book has a great introduction to emotions and description words like happy, tired, sad, dirty, clean, etc. Great way for kids to learn emotions and how to react to certain awkward situations. It also helps kids learn how to ask for things. This book meets Piaget’s stages of cognitive development because during sensorimotor (birth to age 2) children suffer from separation anxiety and this book can help them to learn how to act or behave when they face such problems.
Stacking: Building a tower and then knocking it down is not only fun, but it's educational as well. Placing one piece on top of the next teaches children about balance. And one year olds are fascinated by the idea of knocking things down. According to Piaget’s stages of cognitive development, during sensorimotor, a child acts on the environment by knocking down blocks, or making sounds. When a child sees an object, they reach for it.
Sesame Street Singing Pop Up: This toy features four of the characters from Seasame Street: Elmo, Ernie, Cookie Monster, and Oscar. They sing and pop up and later disappear. This toy meets Piaget’s theory because during sensorimotor, kids learn object permanence. This is when a child realizes that objects still exist although the object is no longer seen. When the characters disappear, the child knows its still there.
Sesame Street: This television show is a contemporary educational show that is used for kid’s entertainment. It is mostly known for its Muppet characters like Elmo and Ernie. They teach basic life lessons like healthy eating, proper hygiene, and social behavior. This show fits Piaget’s sensorimotor stage because it helps children develop a sense of understanding through object permanence and assimilation.
Synopsis: This book talks about Harry, a little white dog with black spots who loves everything but a bath. One day before bath time, he ran away and played outside so much that he turned into a black dog with white spots. The dog’s family couldn’t even recognize him and the adventure of him getting back home began. This book meets Piaget’s stages of cognitive development because during the preoperational stage (2 to age 6) children begin to think all objects have life, and that human beings created everything so the dog is a good example of that. Also they use inaccurate logic with the dogs.
Looking out of the Window: you look out of the window and talk about things that you see. The song goes like this: “I’m looking out of the window, the window, the window, and this is what I see…I see…and you name something you see and the child has to identify it. According to Piaget’s stages of cognitive development, during the preoperational time, a child is egocentric and cannot take another point of view. The child classifies objects by one trait, usually color.
5-Year-Old (Toy) Piggy Bank This toy enables a child to put currency into a little pig and save it for any type of use in the future This applies to Piagets pre- operational period because it in this stage a child views all objects to have life. In this case a 5 year-old would view this piggy as a form of life instead of just an object
5-Year-Old (TV Show) Hannah Montana- This show is widely viewed as a popular show for many young children. It shows the story of a character that lives in two worlds, one as a rock star and the other as a normal teenager. Through the comedy an d other characteristics, children are drawn to this show and watch it on a daily basis. This show fits Piaget’s preoperational period because it shows how children use the language in this show and apply it to their daily lives. The stage states that children start to represent the world internally through language and children influenced by this show represent the characteristic of this stage.
11-year-old (Book) Harry Potter- This is a series of fantasy novels and the book chronicles the adventures of Harry Potter and his two friends at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardy. This book represents the Concrete Stage because it gives a child that belief to conclude come decisions from the events in the novel. For example, when Harry Potter jumps through a wall. A child is forced to draw the conclusion that jumping through a wall is credible and a form of reality.
11-year-old ( Activity) Doing Addition and Subtraction- A child sits down and does simple addition and subtraction problems and notices the connection both ideas have on finding the solution and learns how one may effect the other. Through the simple activity of addition and subtraction, a child learns reversibility, which is stated in the concrete stage. In this feature, a child understands and performs operations that go in other directions. Addition and subtraction would be a perfect example of how solutions they try to solve go in two different directions
11-Year-Old (Toy) Pictionary- Pictionary is a game that is played by groups of children that involves finding out what the picture represents as a teammate illustrates it on a piece of paper. This board game represents Piagets concrete stage because it shows how a child can use characteristics of the picture to draw a conclusion as to what exactly the illustration is.
11-Year-Old (TV Show) Discovery Channel- This show provides documentary on things such as science, history, and history aimed to draw attention from younger audiences around the world. This show relates to Piagets concrete stage because it allows the younger audience to test out the element of inductive reasoning. Through the documentaries the audience can draw conclusions from a number of facts and conclude that many things have a “bigger picture” that it’s trying to portray.
