The tool of observation is so powerful because each child is different and has specific needs. without observing them we will not be able to taylor lesson plans that fit the needs of our group.  It is the best way to track their development and aid in their continued growth

Observation is key to learning about a child's development and attitude. This is so valuable because you can see the child interacting with other students and observe how they act in certain situations that might test them in different ways. By observing a child, you can check to see what they have learned and what they still need to learn to get past major milestones.

Observation is valuable because it helps us assess where children are developmentally so that we know what they are capable of and how we can assist in further development.

Observation is valuable because you can see which developmental areas the child does well in and which areas they may struggle in and need additional support. Observation is an informal way to see the child in his/her natural setting.

The information gained through observation is so valuable because this is what you will use to create curriculum and communicate concerns with parents.

Through observation you learn more about the child in their natural state. When you follow the child like a shadow, it heavily influences their decision making and therefore their actions.

Observation is the most important way in which we as teachers get to know a child. This includes observing any areas of strength, any areas in which they may need extra help, or any challenges that they may be facing. This type of information can be obtained through other methods, but observation is the most direct and effective method for beginning to understand what kind of care a child needs.

Observation is one of the most important things us as teachers need to know how to do, this is how we get to know children and we can find out more than who they are as people but what their straingths and weaknesses are and where they need help. This also lets us see them in their natural state where they are not influenced by the people around them. Observing children in a class also can help build a good and solid curriculum for all the students to be able to learn.

Observation of the children is the most important way in which to learn where a child is developmentally. This allows for the teacher to learn how they can help the child grow, where they need more support, and what they may be best at.  It also allows for the teacher to see when a child suddenly struggles in some way, and then the teacher may be able to report back to the parent so the parent can also help support the child.

Observation is very critical in a child's development. This tool is able to gather information needed so teachers are able to lesson plan based on what they observe. It also allows teachers to see if children are developing where should.
