Room Location: Santa Clara Convention Center
Meeting Room Name: Grand Ballroom B
Theater Style: 70

Learning Level: Appropriate for All

Language: English

Course Description

Implementation science has shown that children benefit when their teachers have opportunities to reflect on child data, followed by opportunities to plan and implement new learning opportunities for children based on this data. DRDP Online, the new online platform for the Desired Results Developmental Profile provides multiple tools and reports that teachers may use to simplify this reflection and planning process. In this workshop presenters will share a variety of strategies teachers and administrators may use to simplify this reflective planning cycle by utilizing DRDP Online reports to inform classroom practices. After the strategies are shared, presenters will facilitate interactive small group activities where participants may practice the new strategies and network with colleagues. Participants will have the opportunity to reflect and analyze their experience and to develop individual action plans to increase opportunities for utilizing DRDP Online reporting tools.

Room Location: Hyatt Regency Santa Clara
Meeting Room Name: Camino Real
Theater Style: 65

Learning Level: Appropriate for All

Language: English

Course Description

Play behaviors in children and other animals with complex brains arise out of primary biological drives. These behaviors are initiated by environmental triggers which, in turn, elicit predictable play patterns in all children. For example, a tree with specific shapes will stimulate climbing, a railroad track will be an opportunity to practice balance, and a hill will be rolled down. The physical manifestation of a play pattern is reflected in the areas of the brain that are developed through the exercise of the pattern, i.e., the brain is structurally modified to efficiently and repeatedly carry out the behaviors. For the infant, the parent is the primary trigger. As the child develops, environmental features and other people increasing become the source of triggers.The creation of early childhood learning environments generally provides an environment which supports many of the essential play patterns. The design and furnishings for these environments are typically based on tradition and programming guidelines developed over the past century. It is only in the last two decades that information, primarily from the use of fMRI research, has become available to corollate play patterns with brain and sensory development. This presentation, intended for all audiences, provides an assessment tool which connects the brain and sensory development with 16 specific environmental triggers allowing educators to rate their learning environment based on the most current studies and research. By gaining a fuller understanding of the role of play patterns and triggers, educators will be able to ensure that all of their student's developmental needs are fully met. Also, educators will gain new insights that will help them explain the benefits of natural and spontaneous free play in the education of their child.

What does it mean to be Reggio Inspired? A quick look at the founder, Loris Malaguzzi, and constructivist theory will start off this presentation. We will take a look at how these theories inform the teacher to child interactions, along with the planning and environmental set up that are part of a Reggio inspired preschool environment.

We will then move onto what it looks like in practice when we embrace the ideas of constructivist theory and how to implement or include a Reggio inspired approach into your daily work with young children.

Room Location: Santa Clara Convention Center
Meeting Room Name: Great America Ballroom J
Theater Style: 125

Learning Level: Appropriate for All

Language: English

Course Description

Separation, loss, divorce, death, shootings, illness, earthquakes, fires, floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, riots, war, bad dreams and nightmares - these are occasional and routine facts of life faced by children of all races and classes as part of their everyday lives. As much as we like to think of childhood as idyllic and innocent, the reality is that young children are often exposed to, and must deal with, situations that cause major stress and that can have an adverse effect on their development. Songs have been used by people throughout history in all cultures as a way of coping with, and providing comfort and support through hard times. This workshop will provide the tools to enable teachers to carry on this tradition, and to use songs and singing as a way to help children move through their times of need toward positive outcomes.

Course Description

The stages of social-emotional development set the groundwork for intellectual and academic development throughout a child's lifetime. Teachers, coaches, and administrators can discover how using the Inventory of Practices for CSEFEL's Teaching Pyramid can support them in engaging all children. Developing a working knowledge of the user-friendly Inventory of Practices help teachers ground themselves in sustaining a functional environment where all children can thrive, teachers are reflective, and learning is present. Using videos to guide us through the Inventory of Practice, teachers will reflect on multiple ways to achieve the strategies in the Inventory of Practices. Aligning the Inventory of Practices with CLASS, Calfornia Frameworks and highly used curricula are explored in this session.

Apr 12, 2019 @ 08:00 AM

Room Location: Santa Clara Convention Center
Meeting Room Name: Great American Meeting Room 123
Theater Style: 125

Learning Level: Appropriate for All

Language: English

Course Description

This session will explore the use of song, play and movement in the life of a young child. Through the use of the song games of Education Through Music educators will learn how to build community, support a strong auditory system, develop stronger adult/child regard (bonding), increase motor awareness and develop a stronger sense of self and other in the child (empathy). We will look at strategies to develop a classroom with increased intrinsic motivation, sustained focus and attention, less impulsivity and stronger listening skills. Finally, we will reflect on the impact the emotional system plays in a child's learning.

Presenter's Biographies

Apr 13, 2019 @ 03:00 PM

Room Location: Santa Clara Convention Center
Meeting Room Name: Room 211
Theater Style: 40

Learning Level: Appropriate for All

Language: English

Course Description

Tender topics such as race, death, family diversity, divorce, cancer, disability, or military deployment are issues that may deeply affect children at one time or another. This interactive session will present through text, photos, illustrations, and discussion how child care providers can bring up these topics and support children's social-emotional development. The presenters explain how our college level ESL for Child Development class prepares pre-service and in-service teachers to explore these issues with children. The presenters will describe the ways that linguistically and culturally diverse adult English learners prepare to read and discuss books about these 'tender topics' (as described by Mankiw and Strasser in 'Young Children,' March 2013) and, in the process, how they improve their English and their ability to connect with children.

Included will be step-by-step instructions in a project comprising selecting and reading about a child experiencing a tender topic and writing an evaluation of the book. Through this project, students become familiar with children's books that address topics that may be difficult to discuss, gain an understanding of what children learn from books, and learn to guide a helpful conversation with children about a tender topic. Due to the fact that there are many ways that individuals experience a challenging situation, and that our students come from diverse cultural, socio-economic, and linguistic backgrounds, discussion around these topics requires vocabulary and functional language to express thoughts and feelings in English, as well as sensitivity to differing approaches to helping children respond.

Participants will be invited to share in small groups and with the whole class their experiences, materials, and methods that can guide us all to be more knowledgeable, caring, and compassionate early childhood educators.

Apr 12, 2019 @ 04:00 PM

Room Location: Santa Clara Convention Center
Meeting Room Name: Room 203/204
Theater Style: 125

Learning Level: Intermediate

Language: English

Course Description

Effective communication is a powerful tool in supporting young children's development. Our presentation focuses on the teacher's emotional awareness of the child, while modeling positive interactions that children can draw upon when interacting with peers and adults. The purpose of this presentation is to share the guidelines with which we approach our interactions with children at Bing. We will share the foundational pieces necessary for laying the groundwork in the classroom for talking to young children. The presentation will provide guiding communication strategies for teachers to use and model in the classroom related to:


- social problem solving,

- redirecting appropriate behavior,

- addressing feelings: acknowledging and validating

- children's work

- children's friendships

- children's accomplishments and failures

- develop a growth mindset


Other elements we will address that support teachers in maintaining a high quality of interactions in the classroom are: being authentic and sincere, teaching by modeling and enjoying your interactions with your children.

Communication is at the heart of child development, be it cognitive, social, emotional or behavioral. - Lev Vygotsy, (1978) Mind in Society, Harvard University Press, Cambridge MA
