Consider both the instructions included within this study guide and also in the assignment’s video for this graded project, you’ll research the guidelines for selecting safe and developmentally appropriate toys for all children ages birth to eight years. Then, you’ll select three specific toys you believe to be safe and developmentally appropriate for children of a selected age group, and will explain the appropriateness of the toy as you answer a series of questions about each toy.
You’ll provide all of the requested information and answer all of the required questions in one continuous essay. Remember to use fully developed sentences and paragraphs, following APA format.
Research the appropriate guidelines for selecting toys for young children. This information is available on the Internet and in many early childhood publications. Then, write an essay of at least five (5) fully developed paragraphs, summarizing and explaining at least fifteen (15) guidelines regarding toy safety and developmental appropriateness. Refer to the course resources available on the Early Childhood Programs and Courses Learning Resource Center for additional guidance on completing this assignment: https://pflibrary.pennfoster.edu/earlychildhoodcenter/college.
In your essay, you must include in-text citations in APA format to indicate where the information originated from.
Exams received without proper in-text citations and a References page in APA format will be considered plagiarized, and a grade of 1% may be awarded. Ensure you are correctly citing all of your research in your essay.
For assistance with proper APA in-text citations and references, please review the APA in ECE – Oh My! recorded webinar and Keep Calm and APA! reference page on the Early Childhood Learning Resource Center https://pflibrary.pennfoster.edu/earlychildhoodcenter/college.
Select one of the following age groups:
6 to 12 months
1 to 3 years
3 to 5 years
Select three toys you believe to be safe, developmentally appropriate, and educational for a typical child within the age group you’ve selected. Write an opening paragraph that identifies the age group selected for Part 2 of the assignment. In addition, identify the three toys that were selected for this age group, ensuring that three specific toys have been selected rather than toy categories. The opening paragraph should be three to five sentences. For each of the toys, provide responses to the following questions using fully developed sentences and paragraphs:
Provide the full name of the toy, and the name of the manufacturer. Then, provide a detailed description of the toy in your own words. Use five to seven sentences to indicate, for example, the size of the toy, the materials it’s made from, its purpose, how it is cleaned and sanitized, how it is played with, how it is stored, its typical purchase price and where it can be purchased, and other information you wish to share.
Then, answer each of these questions in its own fully developed paragraph:
Why is this toy developmentally appropriate for a child in this age group?
Why is this toy educational? What can children learn by playing with this toy?
Why is this toy appealing to a child in this age group?
Would a parent select this toy? Why or why not?
Would you select this toy to use with a child in this age group? Why or why not?
Is the toy safe for young children? Why or why not?
What hazards could you anticipate with this toy? How can you prevent the hazard from happening?
Part 2 of the assignment will consist of twenty-four (24) fully developed paragraphs in total, eight (8) paragraphs per toy, including the toy’s description.
Type your submission, double-spaced, in a standard print font, size 12. Use a standard document format with one-inch margins. (Times New Roman, Calibri, or Arial are recommended fonts.)
Include a Title Page in APA format that includes your full name, the name and number of this exam, the name and number of this course, the name of the school, and the date of submission. Refer to the Sample APA Title Page on the Early Childhood Learning Resource Center.
Read the assignment carefully, and include all of the necessary information. Be sure to cite all of the websites and articles you use.
Include in-text citations in your essay, and a References page; use APA format for both.
