Supporting Emotional Skill Development

Create a calming space that provides hands-on and simple ways to support their emotional development.

We created the Soothing Sammy Kit  for parents and preschool teachers. The children's book, along with Sammy the plush dog and parent/teacher guide, creates a complementary set of tools that every home (or classroom) with young children will appreciate.

 

Parent-Teacher Conference Checklist

Communicating with parents is so important! Giving parents a glimpse at their child's school day, their friends and their favorite activities allows parents to feel and share in their child's experiences. 

 

Some simple ways to include parents is to a:

  • Daily parent slips
  • Parent notebook
  • Parent conferences

 

Attached is a page that you can fill out for parent conferences once or twice per year! 

Documentation and Tracking Children's Progress

Creating a way to keep track of each child’s progress in the classroom can be daunting. Documentation is a simple way to incorporate observational assessments in the classroom.

Setting Up a Classroom Environment

1) Create a space that is safe, free-flowing and organized.

Sounds easy right? Your positioning of classroom materials, furniture and choice of decor will directly impact the behavior of your group.

 

Planning Classroom Materials

Too many materials mean chaos! Consider only placing four or five toys in each area of your classroom. Rotate them out every week so there are new items (this will spark excitement and focus). Here are some simple ways to do this!

 

Understanding Teachable Moments

Discover how to identify and follow the child's leave in daily “Teachable Moments”.

 

Understanding Project Implementation

Create your own projects using Unit Themes: Projects are fabulous ways to encourage children to dig deeper into a topic. Projects can last over multiple days, even multiple weeks. In the large motor/block area, a project can be worked on as a group.
