The effectiveness of the educational intervention on the child is given by the identification of his particularities, the topic addressed, the selected and presented content, the didactic strategies used in the activities and not only that. In this sense, the current work aims to facilitate the access of preschool teachers to examples of activities that can arouse the interest in knowledge of children in the large group, give them a sense of well-being and that can lead to the recording of performances.
The teaching staff must constantly adapt the theme and the content addressed to the group, the didactic strategies, the means of achievement, the ways of integrating the activities, to ensure the coherence between the activities carried out throughout the day/week (ADP, ALA, ADE) so that to show interest for the children and for them to learn for themselves in a fair and coherent way.
This guide brings to the attention of female educators orientation planning on experiential fields, the detailing of freely chosen activities and the entertaining/recreational/outdoor program and aspects regarding the activities for the development of personal skills. It also includes an annual planning by areas of development, with everything that involves the program of a day spent at kindergarten (from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.) and planning for the School Otherwise program and for the Green Week, these can be used to complete the condition the teacher (the teacher's notebook).
Considering that the program of kindergartens in Romania is different, I considered it appropriate to use the symbols * and # to mark and at the same time to differentiate the activities that can be carried out within preschool education units with normal program and respectively with extended program, taking into account by the timetables that can be found also explained in the appendix of this guide:
* - normal schedule activities;
# - extended schedule activities.
Another important aspect that must be mentioned is that the planning of activities by modules in this guide takes into account the chronological order of activities (mathematical, psychomotor, musical, plastic activities, etc.), thus offering the children the opportunity to gradually acquire the contents presented by educators, during independent weeks or thematic projects that ensure the success of the acquisition of behaviors necessary for the development of later skills.
As we well know, creativity is nowadays considered to be part of the individual's personality, and in order to develop the creative potential of each child, the author, through the ideas presented, wants to broaden the horizons of preschool teachers regarding the theme of activities supported with preschoolers in large groups, to give the children the opportunity to enrich their knowledge and to activate their creative thinking to create products, ideas, based on the interweaving of new information with previously acquired information.
In order to support her colleagues, the author has developed a series of materials (sheets, PowerPoint presentations, tokens, etc.) which are posted on the website www.activatigigradinita.com, which the readers of this guide can find under the name of the activities listed in the planning indicative and can download them for free, by creating an account.
We mention that the assessments applied to preschoolers during the school year are present in the form of independent weeks, both at the beginning of the school year, in the first two weeks related to the initial assessment, and at the end of each module for the summative assessment.
In conclusion, we would like to appreciate the immeasurable work and dedication with which the educators exercise this beautiful profession, the multitude of qualities that you must possess from the perspective: the amount of information that you must convey to the children corresponding to all areas of development, the openness to the organization and development of extracurricular and extracurricular activities, communication and collaboration with all the educational factors involved in the education of preschoolers (community, parents, similar units, NGOs, etc.), all this so that the little men travel a smooth path towards an integral development desired by medium and long term society.
