Interpretation/Reflection: I chose to describe this incident because I
wanted to record data from the interactions between the children and the
ECE professional. It was very exciting to see the children working
together sharing materials to make their drawings and interacting with the
ECE professional. I would like to see more interactions between the
children and the ECE professional in different learning centers in order for
me to determine in which areas their social skills needs reinforcement and
eventually create a learning prescription for each children.
