Event Details

Parents and child care professionals serve as children's first teachers. Children become ready for school through the environments we set up and the activities we offer. Therefore, it is important to understand what does and does not lead to "academic readiness."

Studies of children have shown repeatedly that young children learn best through active involvement with real objects in child-directed play. Children learn to read by being exposed to stories, books, and language from very early in life, rather than phonics drills or worksheets. They learn math by sorting, counting, and dividing real objects, not through completing problems on paper.

Does that mean then that there is no place for worksheets in a high-quality early learning setting?  


Topics for Training:

* A brief history of worksheets and dittos

* How worksheets and dittos are used and abused

* Homework in early learning settings

* Next steps with worksheets and dittos 

* Shared understanding between families and teachers

Teaching Excellence Center

People working with young children need opportunities to develop skills, acquire new knowledge, and achieve practical levels of interacting and communicating with young children and their families.

They also need to maintain skills and keep them up to date with current knowledge. Our professional development opportunities for early childhood professionals are designed to engage the wide range of people who work and join the early childhood workforce.


Developing Teachers: Knowledge. Skills. Ability. Attitude.
