Strategies on pro-social skills from a preschool teacher.
As you watch, think about the strategies and activities that Callie Weller, a preschool teacher in Vermont, uses to help her children build pro-social skills.
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 collaborative, cooperative environment for the children in your space? What did you see in the video that you’d like to try?
- How does Callie observe, interpret, and comment on children’s behavior as they play and learn?
