Therefore Pshycmotor movements do not really need energy, but require careful coordination and accuracy. Pshycomotor skills begin to develop after starting with very simple activities such as holding a pencil, holding a spoon, and stirring. Cutting is easy, but if it does not go through the proper steps, the results of the cut will not be as expected.

Socio-cultural theory provided the framework, while pretest-posttest control group quasi-experimental design was adopted. 74 children (44 males and 30 females) with a mean age of 5.61 from four pre-primary schools (two public and private schools) were purposively selected from two local government areas, and randomised into CIBS and conventional groups respectively. Children’s Cognitive Competence Rating Scale (r = 0.89) and CBIS Instructional Guide were used to collect the study data. Paired sample t-test and Analysis of covariance(ANCOVA) were used to analyse the data. There was a significant main effect of treatment on children’s cognitive competence (<sub>F(1,65)</sub> = 10.31; partial ?<sup>2</sup> = 0.14). CIBS was found to be potent in enhancing pre-primary school children’s cognitive competence, especially in problem-solving, speaking, and listening skills. Teaching and learning activities at the pre-primary school level should employ a culturally-based instructional strategy.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> 2021-11-30T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2021 Oluyemisi Majebi, Esther Oduolowu The Development of Kindergarten Teacher’s Personality Through Knowledge Sharing During The Covid-19 Pandemic 2021-11-04T09:26:10+00:00 Evrilia Silvia Ningrum Suryanto Suryanto <p>Covid-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on education, as well as occured in early childhood education where the learning process is conducted online. Changes in the learning process that suddenly happened makes teachers don’t have the readiness to change even a teacher who holds an essential role in education is required to have the readiness to face change. Hence, the teacher must have personality competence to support the learning process’s success. This study discusses kindergarten teacher’s personality development through knowledge sharing in dealing with the learning process’s changes during the Covid-19 pandemic. The methodology in this study used a qualitative approach with case study type and descriptive data analysis technique. The data were collected through the deep interview method, and the informants were the principal and four teachers of Kartini Amadanom Kindergarten. The result of this study indicated that knowledge sharing made a positive contribution to teacher’s personality development endeavors. In other words, if knowledge sharing with teachers is conducted well, the teacher’s personality development endeavor well. This study has limitations, such as the fact that the research scope is limited to one school. In further research, researchers can discover further a teacher’s personality development through knowledge sharing by comparing to data from other schools and adding it as another method to accelerate the development of teachers’ personalities. This study gives an alternative solution to develop the teacher’s personality to confront online learning as an effect of the Covid-19 pandemic. The result of knowledge sharing aims to arrange the process of online learning.</p> 2021-11-30T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2021 Evrilia Silvia Ningrum, Suryanto Suryanto Attitude of Male Inservice and Preservice Earlychildhood Teachers towards Working in Preschool Centers in Ibadan, Nigeria 2021-05-28T22:32:48+00:00 Moses Amosun Lawrence Ogunniyi Funke Ogunbiyi <p>Preschool Education provides foundation for all round development, enables the child to understand various issues and fit in well into the society. Although it is the duty of both male and female early childhood educators to help children develop holistically, statistics has shown that more female care givers work in preschool centers across the country than male. Even in some foreign countries, this problem remains the same. However, researches have tried to identify the cause of this gender inequality or disparity but have only sampled the opinion of others about this without adequately considering the attitude of the male early childhood educators. Hence, this study investigated the attitude of male early childhood educators towards working in preschool centers in Ibadan. The study adopted a mixed method research approach and the design is explanatory triangulation of QUAN + QUAL type. Proportional stratified sampling technique was used to select 150 in-service and 150 pre-service male early childhood educators from the 3 local government areas selected. One instrument was used to gather the quantitative data. Interview of in-services and pre-service early childhood educators also form source of qualitative data. The study found out that the attitude of early childhood educators is not encouraging. It also found out that there is no significant difference between in-services and pre service early childhood educators in their attitude towards working in preschool. It was recommended that investment should be made into early childhood education level so as to make the salary attractive for most male educators.</p> 2021-11-30T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2021 Amosun Moses , Lawrence Ogunniyi, Ogunbiyi Funke
