A Welcoming Space

A video presenting insights and strategies from preschool teachers.

Preschool teachers Joseph Braswell and Callie Weller discuss different ways to create a welcoming environment for their students. As you watch the video, think about how you might apply their ideas or specific strategies in your classroom. You might take notes as you watch.   

If you’re with colleagues, discuss your thoughts together. Consider:  

  • What is one idea presented that you’d like to keep in mind as you go through the day in your classroom?  
  • How do you build a welcoming environment for children in your space? What did you see in the video that you’d like to try?  
  • How do the teachers observe, interpret, and comment on children’s behavior as they play and learn?
