Another way to achieve high quality care and learning is through interaction and play with the children. Teachers should talk to children at eye level in a calm and encouraging tone. Children need to feel safe and well assured in their place of care before learning can be introduced in the classroom. A child should follow an organized and daily routine that they can become familiar with. Teachers should treat each child as an individual and focus on that child’s individual strengths and weaknesses. Children should never be yelled at and should always be talked to in a calm, and positive tone despite other things going on in the room. Infants should be engaged in a variety of developmentally appropriate activities. The toys in the room should be safe, clean, developmentally appropriate and rotated frequently to meet the needs of different ages of children and their growth. For example, if older infants are beginning to climb on unsafe items such as swings or teacher chairs bring out a small climbing ramp and encourage them to practice this new skill there. Parents should be encouraged to share ideas on lesson plans or areas they are working on with their child or would like to see their child grow. Non- mobile infants should be moved around the room so that they can experience different aspects of motor play. Children should be limited in hearing the word “No” and positive redirection and explanation should be given by the teacher. Tummy time, crawling, walking, dancing, singing, counting, reading books, fingerplays, painting, building and manipulative play are just a few ways teachers can help interact with children and improve their growth. Children should be encouraged to learn from mistakes and try again not to be shamed or put down. A child’s work should be displayed at eye level because our room is designed for their interest, self- expression and learning. Lesson plans should be individualized to meet the needs and growth of different levels of infants and be posted in the classroom. Teachers should communicate and engage children through daily tasks such as diaper changings, eating,…
are otherwise absent in the host diet (3). Endosymbionts have also been found to have important roles in the development of insect hosts, especially during energy intensive processes such as molting (4).
Recent discoveries have found that the bean bug, Riptortus pedestris, belonging to the Coreoidea superfamily, acquires symbiotic Burkholderia, not through vertical transmission from parent to offspring, but through oral acquisition from their environment (4). Also, many insect species of the Lygaeoidea…
pill bugs preferred the soil to the grass. Pill bugs are detritivores, meaning they consume dead and decaying organic material (like leaf litter and fallen branches). The pill bugs preferred the soil because it provided both a food source and an environment to camouflage from predators.
In the experiment that tested moisture preference, it was determined that the pill bugs equally preferred both the damp and the dry environments. The preference for the damp environment is due to pill bug anatomy-…

The purpose of experiment one was to observe whether pill bugs preferred a dark environment to a light environment. The purpose of experiment two was to observe whether or not an even sample of twenty pill bugs took a preference to environments with different temperatures. Our…
Leo the Lightning Bug, written by Eric Drachman and illustrated by James Muscarello, is a story about the littlest lightning bug who could not make himself light up. Feeling sad and frustrated, he complained to his mother. Leo’s mother comforts him by telling him that “with a little time and practice” (Drachman, 2001, p. 2), he will let out a beautiful light. Following his mother’s advice, he went out the next night to practice. Little did he know, the other young lightning bugs saw him flip and…

Bugs are about apart of life. Even bugs in a computer is a part of life. Obviously thought the bug in the computer is MUCH more different than the one in the outside world. Although to be precise a software bug is an error, flaw, failure, or fault in a computer program or system that causes it to produce an incorrect or unexpected result, or to behave in unintended ways.
Even though that was the…
Scientific Method: The Pill bug
Pill bugs scientifically known as Isopods are common crustaceans that live on land. Pill bugs have an exoskeleton consisting of overlapping plates that make them look like little armadillos. As pill bugs grow, they molt four or five times during a lifetime. A pill bug can roll up into such a tight ball that its legs and head are no longer visible, earning it…
