It’s always a pleasure to share words of inspiration, tips & tricks, and other “tools of the trade” that others have so graciously crafted for us. As Bill Nye said, “everyone you will ever meet knows something you don’t.”
(See also: I sat down to write a blog post and realized that a simple list might be all that my end-of-the-school-year brain can pull together today.)
With that in mind, enjoy this curated list of five recent faves:
- It’s more than just a spoon. Jennifer Horner, Director of Education Development for Doodle Bugs! Children’s Learning Academy, shared this beautiful reminder to approach everyday interactions with intention.
- Meaningful relationships promote positive behaviors. If you have not yet checked out the “10 Simple Strategies” series curated by the WNY Behavior Collaboration, you don’t know what you’re missing! You can access the full series here.
- New ideas are a lot like dessert — better when they are bite-sized! I hope you’ll enjoy this perspective on bite-size advocacy; after all, when you choose early childhood education as a career, your first role is advocate for children.
- Whether you’re a techie or decidedly tech-free, you’ll love Teacher Tom’s take on the best preschool app. Go ahead, download it today!
- …and if you happen to prefer podcasts over articles, we’ve got a recommendation for you, too. You’re going to love the Little Kids, Big Questions series from Zero to Three! Get started with Developing Self-Esteem in the Early Years.
