Webinar: Creating Trauma Sensitive Classrooms
 
57:12
On April 12, 2018, NAEYC hosted a webinar on the topic “Creating Trauma-Sensitive Classrooms.” In the United States, the number of young children who have experienced a traumatic event in their lives is increasing. As early childhood educators, we are often the first responders for identifying individual needs and setting up strategies that lead to positive learning environments. This webinar identifies behavioral signs that children dealing with trauma may exhibit, as well as effective strategies that can be used to create trauma-sensitive classrooms. Speakers on this webinar were: Barbara Sorrels, executive director of The Institute for Childhood Education and author of the award-winning book Reaching and Teaching Children Exposed to Trauma, and Katie Statman-Weils, an adjunct instructor at Portland State University who focuses on equity and guidance strategies that improve social and emotional development and self-regulation for all learners.

Educational Playcare in Simsbury CT: Daycare, Preschool & Enrichment Programs for Children
 
03:52
Our Simsbury School opened in 2007. It is situated on the corner of Rt. 10 and Rt. 315. We have been NAEYC Accredited since 2010. It was actually featured on a National Tour of quality centers and posted to the website of the National Child Care Association. Each entranceway is secured by a pin-activated security system. Codes are available only to staff during the day for entrance from our playgrounds. The front entrance requires a key fob which is personalized for each family. In addition, each classroom has at least one camera which allows our Directors to continuously monitor activities throughout the center. Even the front doors themselves are a security feature: they register the body heat of an adult and therefore will not allow any child to exit the building alone. There's just too much to tell. Help yourself to a cup of coffee when you first enter or make a copy or two in the Old English phone booth. Our Director or Assistant Director are there to greet you when you first enter. We also have storage as you enter for car seats. Our classrooms are significantly oversized, providing much more than the minimum requirements for CT classrooms. Each one is divided into activity centers that range from Science and Math, to Music and Movement, and from Building and Construction to Literacy and Dramatic Play. All of these centers are available throughout the day. Infant and toddler classrooms are downstairs and upstairs we have huge preschool classrooms. Natural light abounds throughout. We have indoor play areas downstairs as well as a HUGE indoor play area for preschoolers and school-age children. What you see is what you get. Our outdoor play areas are unbelievable! Playscapes, a huge pirate ship, an inflatable bounce house, stuff and more stuff. But for many, the best part is the fish pond in front of the entranceway, loaded with huge goldfish and a waterfall. Parents and children frequently just sit and take in the beauty and peacefulness. Finally, the huge frogs are our good luck totems guiding you in, and the ducky weathervane was just for the fun of it.

Five Predictors of Early Literacy
 
06:36
Early childhood professionals need to know how to support young children's language and early literacy development. In e-clip #1, Dr. Theresa Bouley stresses that best practice in early literacy instruction must involve both spontaneous and planned daily activities focused on the five areas of literacy learning that best predict children's future reading and writing development: oral language, phonemic awareness, alphabet awareness, concepts about print, and early writing with inventive spelling. If preschool teachers know what these five predictors are, they can not only plan daily meaningful lessons in these areas, but they can maximize their ability to catch spontaneous teachable moments throughout the day.

The seventh edition to the 'Observing Practice' Vignette Series. These vignettes ask educators to observe closely and describe what you see- the interactions, the play, the environment and the learning. Think about questions such as; What was the thing that stood out in the vignette to you? What questions would you like to ask? These are small snippets in a day and much else would have been happening that is not visible to the viewer. But the aim is to sharpen our observations and thinking about what we see and then to think about how this might inform their planning in their own service. What next?

Webinar - Media Mentors  Helping Children Build Literacy Skills - 2016-06-16
 
01:32:56
With young children gaining access to a dizzying array of games, videos, and other digital media, will they ever learn to read? The answer is yes—if they are surrounded by adults who know how to help and if they are introduced to media designed to promote literacy, instead of undermining it. In short, these children and their families could greatly benefit from a media mentor. What exactly is a media mentor? Michael Levine and Lisa Guernsey, authors of Tap, Click, Read: Growing Readers in a World of Screens, and Chip Donohue, editor of Family Engagement in the Digital Age: Early Childhood Educators as Media Mentors, discuss this new term in the lexicon of 21st-century early childhood education. What skills do media mentors need? How can they be supported? And how can more children gain access to them? In this presentation, Michael, Lisa, and Chip explore the importance of these new roles.

Teacher-Parent Relationship: Using Professional Development to Improve Family & Community Engagement
 
01:24:44
Recorded on November 18, 2010, this was the fourth webinar in the "Achieving Excellence and Innovation in Family, School, and Community Engagement" (FSCE) series. Strong parent-teacher relationships are invaluable. They contribute to a positive school climate, family engagement in student learning, improved student performance, and the retention of high quality teachers. Providing teachers with the resources they need to effectively connect learning in the classroom to learning at home is a challenge that many districts are struggling to address. Family engagement must be a core element of any professional development system. It is not enough to offer random, one-time workshops-family engagement must be embedded in pre-service curricula, professional standards, teacher certification, and assessments for learning and accountability. Furthermore, all school personnel, from principals to receptionists, must have access to high quality professional development that reinforces family engagement as an essential strategy for improving student performance. This webinar examined practical examples of how states can embed family engagement into their professional development systems and how teacher education programs can systematically include family engagement in teaching and learning. The webinar also discussed promising practices in higher education, including partnerships with Parental Information and Resource Centers (PIRCs) to build the capacity of family coordinators. Presenters included: Beatriz Ceja, Program Manager, School Leadership Program, U.S. Department of Education; Charles J. "Chuck" Saylors, President, National PTA; Mishaela Durán, Interim Executive Director, National PTA; Susan Walker, Associate Professor, University of Minnesota; Jane Groff, Director, Kansas State PIRC; Katharine Mora, Education Coordinator, Columbia University Head Start, and Adjunct Professor, Bank Street College of Education A selection of resources and links related to the webinar are located at: http://www.nationalpirc.org/engagement_webinars/archive-webinar4.html
