The Educator's PLN

The personal learning network for educators

Early Childhood Educators understand that children thrive in environments where student expectations are clear and classroom routines are predictable. The Missouri Early Childhood Standards state that Preschool age students should be able to:

The following classrooms have capitalized on their students' visual strengths to increase their ability to function independently both academically and socially.

Look at the kid friendly ways that your colleagues are reinforcing their classroom expectations.
