Center for Early Childhood Education at Eastern Connecticut State University Releases Videos for Early Childhood Teachers

The Center for Early Childhood Education at Eastern Connecticut State University released the latest video in their Teaching Strategies series, a series of brief videos that each focus on one, specific strategy utilized by an early childhood teacher or provider to meet an objective.  In “Using a Visual Schedule,” preschool teacher Patricia Lee from the Darcey School describes how she uses a visual schedule to help children know what to expect throughout the day. Young children can refer to the pictures on the schedule independently to see what comes next, which can help them to regulate their own behavior.  You can view the 2-minute video here: http://www.easternct.edu/cece/teaching-strategies-visual-schedule/

Also, in response to requests for an easy way to find videos focused on younger children, they have created a page on their website to catalog the videos that feature work with infants and toddlers.  The page currently has links to twelve videos, some of which focus exclusively on working with infants and/or toddlers (others include a focus on infants/toddlers for a portion of the video).  You can see the list of videos here: http://www.easternct.edu/cece/infant-toddler-videos/
