    In the module I learned some creative ways to get children engaged in active, meaningful learning are: fostering positive self-identity and a sense of emotional well-being, develop social skills and knowledge, encourage children to think critically, reasons, question and experiment, encourage and demonstrate sound health, safety, and nutritional practice, encourage creative expression, representation and appreciation for the arts. Develop a sense of belonging to the natural environment and ensure the materials and practices of your program reflect the backgrounds and current practices of the children and families enrolled. Some that I like include lesson planning that is not only flexible to each child’s development but also integrating objects or materials from the children’s personal interests and/or cultural background to initiate engagement.
