CCSD is Committed to Quality Early Learning Experiences.
Quality early learning experiences are vital to a child’s success in school, as well as their interest and admiration for school. CCSD teachers and schools are continuously researching and implementing best early education practices for Pre-K-2nd grade students. Understanding early brain development and how to facilitate lessons and learning experiences to inspire young students is at the center of their research.
CCSD teachers and schools are continuously researching and implementing best early education practices to teach Pre-K-2ndgrade students. Teachers consider several components to maximize early learning experiences. This is especially important because a child’s brain develops at a rapid pace between birth and age eight. Below are examples of early learner characteristics and ways teachers respond to those characteristics in the classroom. Consider using the activities at home with your child(ren).
- Student Characteristic: Understands positive and negative emotions. (Activity: Read books together and discuss character emotions.)
- Student Characteristic: Expresses feelings through artwork. (Activity: Use crayons, markers, and/or watercolor to create visual representations of feelings. Discuss images as a family.)
- Student Characteristic: Understands time and sequence. (Activity: Cook meals together using recipes.)
