Developmentally Appropriate Kindergarten: An Interview with Christopher P. Brown

Today we have an awesome conversation about appropriate practice in Kindergarten with Christopher P. Brown of the University of Texas at Austin. Christopher is a Professor of Curriculum and Instruction in Early Childhood Education. He holds the Maxine Foreman Zarrow Endowed Faculty Fellowship in Education. He is a Faculty Fellow with The Institute for Urban Policy Research and Analysis and a Faculty Fellow of the Center for Health and Social Policy at the LBJ School of Public Affairs. He is also the Past-Chair for the Early Education/Child Development Special Interest Group of the American Educational Research Association.His research centers on how early childhood education stakeholders across a range of political and educational contexts make sense of and respond to policymakers' reforms. He has looked at this issue across a range of political and educational contexts using multiple theoretical and practitioner-based perspectives that span the fields of early childhood education, curriculum and instruction, teacher education, and policy analysis.Such work has led to empirical, theoretical, and practitioner-oriented publications on such topics as: high-stakes standards-based accountability reform in early childhood, early learning standards, pre-kindergarten (Pre-k) assessment, Pre-k alignment with elementary school, school readiness, culturally relevant and developmentally appropriate teaching, the changed kindergarten, neoliberal reform, teacher education, professional development, and teaching a mandated curriculum. Among his publications, 25 have been co-authored with 13 current and former graduate students at UT-Austin.His recent publications focus on three issues: 1) Examining how familial, education, research, and political stakeholders make sense of the changed kindergarten; 2) Understanding how practicing and pre-service early childhood educators in high-stakes public teaching contexts can engage in practices that support the cultural, individual, and developmental learning needs of children; 3) Examining the development of preservice teachers as they employ iPads in their teacher training program.You can read more about why the change in kindergarten matters in his article for The Conversation and more of his ideas on how to fix kindergarten in his article for Business Insider.

Dramatic Play

In today's episode we discuss the Dramatic Play center and it's benefits in the Kindergarten classroom. Here are 5 reasons why increasing play in the classroom increases learning:Play Stimulates Thinking:Play will stimulate children's minds and promote advanced intellectual development! It also is a great way for children to expand experiences through reenacting events. These reenactments allow experiences to make more sense and have more meaning, paving the way for future academic success.Play Defines Social Roles:Dramatic play helps children learn social roles and rules, and offers time to practice such social morays as sharing, taking turn, communicating to inform or persuade, and resolving conflicts, and cooperation.Play Inspires Creativity and Imagination:When children are engaged in dramatic play, they can be anyone that they want to be and can even do the impossible! This type of play encourages children to use their imagination and to be creative, as there are no limits. This creative ability will aide students throughout their lives as they become creative and learn to solve problems.Play Builds Emotional Strength:Young children have a hard time understanding and controlling feelings. By engaging in creative play, children can learn to manage and understand certain feelings by re-enacting episodes. Dramatic play can also enhance children's ability to empathize with other people.Play Develops Language:Dramatic play encourages expressive language. Children are motivated to convey their wishes to others and speak from the perspective of their pretend roles. In fact, it is often through dramatic play that shy or withdrawn children first begin to express themselves through language.Don't have a Dramatic Play Center in your classroom? Well give you some tips and ideas to get you started! 6.00 Add To Cart 10.00 Add To Cart   4.00 Add To Cart sale Sale Price:8.00 Original Price:12.00 Add To Cart

Dr. Wiley Blevins is a world-renowned expert on early reading, and author of the seminal book Phonics From A to Z and A Fresh Look At Phonics, among many other works. He has taught in both United States and South America, and he regularly trains teachers throughout Asia. He holds a doctorate in education from Harvard University and has worked with numberous educational scholars, including Jeanne Chall, Isabel Beck, Marilyn Adams, Louisa Moats, Dianne August, and others.In this weeks episode, Dr. Blevins will join us to talk about his book A Fresh Look At Phonics. I just finished reading this book and it's made a huge difference to my understanding and teaching of Phonics this year. One of my favorite parts of Blevin's book is how it breaks down the components of phonics in a way that demonstrates the systematic order we should be teaching in. With his permission, I've posted a few of my favorite tables from the book. First, a table of alphabet letters in order of utility, and then a table of the most frequent spellings of English sounds. I've also shown an example of one of Blevin's blending lines from his book. I loved the way that he builds differentiation into his blending lines, as well as review and repetition. <figure class=" sqs-block-image-figure intrinsic " ><img class="thumb-image" data-image="https://images.squarespace-cdn.com/content/v1/568f319869a91adb94c6de9c/1536194764140-9N47HEPN3WDLCBETN293/ke17ZwdGBToddI8pDm48kE7rzW71lVannA7ss0qjk617gQa3H78H3Y0txjaiv_0fDoOvxcdMmMKkDsyUqMSsMWxHk725yiiHCCLfrh8O1z5QPOohDIaIeljMHgDF5CVlOqpeNLcJ80NK65_fV7..." data-image-dimensions="1512x2016" data-image-focal-point="0.5,0.5" alt="IMG_0124.JPG" data-load="false" data-image-id="5b9078c9352f533ad53a23ae" data-type="image" src="https://images.squarespace-cdn.com/content/v1/568f319869a91adb94c6de9c/1536194764140-9N47HEPN3WDLCBETN293/ke17ZwdGBToddI8pDm48kE7rzW71lVannA7ss0qjk617gQa3H78H3Y0txjaiv_0fDoOvxcdMmMKkDsyUqMSsMWxHk725yiiHCCLfrh8O1z5QPOohDIaIeljMHgDF5CVlOqpeNLcJ80NK65_fV7..." /></figure><figure class=" sqs-block-image-figure intrinsic " ><img class="thumb-image" data-image="https://images.squarespace-cdn.com/content/v1/568f319869a91adb94c6de9c/1536194820179-CCKYV195W4IIXALI8972/ke17ZwdGBToddI8pDm48kE7rzW71lVannA7ss0qjk617gQa3H78H3Y0txjaiv_0fDoOvxcdMmMKkDsyUqMSsMWxHk725yiiHCCLfrh8O1z5QPOohDIaIeljMHgDF5CVlOqpeNLcJ80NK65_fV7..." data-image-dimensions="1512x2016" data-image-focal-point="0.5,0.5" alt="IMG_0125.JPG" data-load="false" data-image-id="5b9078ddb8a04546d211930f" data-type="image" src="https://images.squarespace-cdn.com/content/v1/568f319869a91adb94c6de9c/1536194820179-CCKYV195W4IIXALI8972/ke17ZwdGBToddI8pDm48kE7rzW71lVannA7ss0qjk617gQa3H78H3Y0txjaiv_0fDoOvxcdMmMKkDsyUqMSsMWxHk725yiiHCCLfrh8O1z5QPOohDIaIeljMHgDF5CVlOqpeNLcJ80NK65_fV7..." /></figure><figure class=" sqs-block-image-figure intrinsic " ><img class="thumb-image" data-image="https://images.squarespace-cdn.com/content/v1/568f319869a91adb94c6de9c/1536194896907-VU9ADEGT4D0TM1WJW3IH/ke17ZwdGBToddI8pDm48kP8N5KLxKqzW7xoy-OuA-ht7gQa3H78H3Y0txjaiv_0fDoOvxcdMmMKkDsyUqMSsMWxHk725yiiHCCLfrh8O1z5QPOohDIaIeljMHgDF5CVlOqpeNLcJ80NK65_fV7..." data-image-dimensions="2016x1512" data-image-focal-point="0.5,0.5" alt="IMG_0126.JPG" data-load="false" data-image-id="5b90793240ec9ab3a95ee6a0" data-type="image" src="https://images.squarespace-cdn.com/content/v1/568f319869a91adb94c6de9c/1536194896907-VU9ADEGT4D0TM1WJW3IH/ke17ZwdGBToddI8pDm48kP8N5KLxKqzW7xoy-OuA-ht7gQa3H78H3Y0txjaiv_0fDoOvxcdMmMKkDsyUqMSsMWxHk725yiiHCCLfrh8O1z5QPOohDIaIeljMHgDF5CVlOqpeNLcJ80NK65_fV7..." /></figure>I highly suggest that you get yourself a copy of Blevin's book to help guide your instruction this year.

December Planning Ideas and Songs

In this podcast episode we share some of our favorite activities, songs, and tips for the month of December. Hopefully this episode will help you enjoy your teaching from now to the beginning of winter break!We give suggestions on how to enjoy Christmas themes, build cultural awareness, or learn about elves and reindeer without the holiday slant. For example, using the book “The Elves and the Shoemaker” is a great way to study “elves” in a different way. My class loved when we drew a tiny picture of ourselves by our life-size shoe in our art class.
