Hi guys back again check wit the record let begin, hehe old song
anyways yep today was our first encounter of the third kind (of lecturer that is) enjoyed it and got a lot of usefull info that i can put to good use once i start my ob's. I originally had a babe in the womb to study but since the split from my bloke that has kind of gone out the window. So have two possible victims in mind one whom is 6/7mths old and the other whom is 13/14mth old. now up until today i didnt know indepth what was being asked of me but now that i have a clearer picture in my head i can decide which child will be more suitable for me to observe, that doesnt mean that i am "choosing" the easiest, or more intersting child but it what it does mean for me is that i now know i have to be objective in my ob's so i will pick the child that i would feel i would be most objective with, if that makes any sense? well it does to me! lol. Ok so yeah did have a couple of worries about fi to be honest, i was told that fi was a cross between brian an lin, arrrrgh nightmare!, no offence guys. With this in mind, although i do keep an open mind when meeting new people regardless of what has been said, i found tht fi was as described as such but not to the extreme i had imagined in my nightmares! lol a good mix of the two i would say, which is sound by me. This evening i have started to read Child Observations and Assessment by Christine hobart an Jill Frankel which fi kindly let me loan, this seems like a good book to start from, as my style it to know the ins an outs of everything before i can get me head round it, an sumtimes i have to do it/read it/ watch it twice b4 the understanding comes or the light goes on! haha bummer, but i know this so its all good. So once i get my forms back from my originally victim i can strt writting in my (free) journal an make plans for my baseline ob's . I am wondering if i should actually start the introduction to the portfolio now rather than later, to keep on top of things, i will keep you posted onthat one. Right thats it for tonight am goosed an its only 7.40pm! i forgot how much brain work is needed i actually feel that my brain needs the rest more than my body!!!
Quick summery of gettin back to it, lovin it, lookin forward to everything this year, a lot more than last year, i dnt know if that is because i have survived the first year an kinda know whats expected of me and know what i need to do, or if its because everything is planned out more this year and that i know what i need to do and when for, not sure on that one, or whether its just that my confidence has upt itself another gear acedemically. It could be aa mixture or everything nature/nurture as they say.
peace out guys v
