Developmentally Appropriate Teaching Strategies
The preoperational stage of Piaget’s theory covers children in-between the ages of two through seven.

This would enhance their cognitive abilities, because it would teach them how to do something, allow them to make their own decisions and follow instructions.
Two limitations I think that my chosen activities will lessen the effects is Egocentrism and centration. “Egocentrism refers to the inability of a child to take on a role of another person” (Keating 1979). For example in this stage a child thinks that all views of an object by anyone are the same. The children do not think or understand that others may see something different then they do. By using the activity of the painting of the apple and then...
