Curious to know how many are both the EC teacher and the general curriculum teacher for their PReK class. (And are you the IEP case manager for your students.)
Why are we not treated as the professionals we are??? We are questioned on every turn. Given scripts to read and observed more than fish in a bowl???
What is the rules and regulations in Ny state on having the majority of a class that are 3 yrs old and you have one 2yr old. Would this be considered a preschool room or a toddler room?
Any programs that are state-funded and working with inclusion? We have a start up inclusion, part-day classroom this year.
What are some S M A R T goals you are working towards for yourself professionally or for your students?
Does anyone have a good recommendation for a walk-on song for preschool? I'd like to choose one or two that we could hopefully play every day for the rest of the school year.
Does anyone use a Transdisciplinary Play-Based System in their Pre-K or K programs for assessment and/or screening purposes? If so, may I ask you some questions please?
My co-teacher hasn’t taught sped pre-k before (former resource). She seems apprehensive about everything. It’s supposed to be her AM, me PM. How long should I give her before she takes the wheel? (⬇️)

Lots of emerging studies linked to screen time and young children. Has anyone else heard this? (For reference, I got it from Michigan’s Birth-3 program)
Preschool classrooms often look so different from kindergarten classrooms. What are some of the ways you bridge the gap?
