Agenda Welcome Why foundations? What are they? Structure A Closer Look Whats next? 9

Norms Start on time and end on time. Turn cell phones off. Help the group stay on task. Listen to thoughts and ideas of others. Contribute your thoughts and ideas. 10 Parking Lot Please write questions on post-its and place

them on chart paper titled Parking Lot. 11 Lets get started 12 Research shows that all children can benefit from participating in

high-quality preschool programs. Jack OConnell A Message from the State Superintendent of Public Instruction 13 Children who attend high-quality preschool programs: are more comfortable in their surroundings have been exposed to books have learned to play cooperatively

are accustomed to learning with others 14 Readiness Gap 15 Key Findings of the Rand Study Children who attend pre-k score higher on school readiness measures at

kindergarten entry. Effective pre-k improves childrens K-12 academic performance. Effective pre-k has long-term benefits. 16 With a goal of ensuring that all preschools offer high-quality programs, the California Department of Education developed

these preschool learning foundations. On January 22, 2008, the State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Jack OConnell formally released the foundations during the California State of Education address. 17 The Foundations

Describe the knowledge and skills that all young children typically exhibit: at around 48 and 60 months of age; as they complete their first or second year of preschool; with appropriate support; and when attending a high-quality preschool program. 18 High-Quality Programs Include environments and experiences that encourage

active, playful exploration and experimentation purposeful teaching to help children gain knowledge and skills specific support for children learning English specific accommodations and adaptations for children with special needs 19 A Personal Reflection Take a moment to respond to this question:

What do I already know about the preschool learning foundations? 20 21 Introduction to Foundations Read the Preschool Learning Foundations Introduction on pages xi-xvi.

22 Introduction to Foundations Talk at your table and create a bumper sticker or license plate that will convey to the rest of the group the important points in your assigned section. Use no more than ten words. 23

Break Time! 24 Introduction Highlights 25 Introduction Highlights Foundations describe knowledge and skills that most children can be expected to exhibit in a

high-quality program at the end of their first or second year of preschool. They focus on behaviors reflecting ageappropriate competencies for children at around 48 months and at around 60 months. 26 Introduction Highlights Children are different and may not demonstrate the behaviors in the examples exactly as they are stated.

When taking an in-depth look at a domain, one needs to keep in mind that, for young children, learning is a very integrated experience. 27 Introduction Highlights The purpose of the foundations is to promote

understanding of preschool childrens learning and to guide instructional practice. 28 Foundations are based on Relevant Relevantstudies studies

Children with Disabilities Children with disabilities develop in ways that are similar to, but different from typically developing children. Teachers provide the insight needed to understand how these foundations can be applied. 31

Universal Design for Learning supports preschool programs in their efforts to foster learning and development for all children provides opportunities for children to follow different pathways to learning provides for the use of multiple approaches to learning 32 Universal Design for Learning cont.

provides information in a variety of ways so that the learning needs of all of the children are met allows for use of alternative methods to demonstrate what they know or feel provides choices for activities that facilitate learning by building on childrens interests 33 How Tos of Teaching Young Children Effective teaching includes:

setting up environments; supporting childrens play; selecting appropriate materials; and planning and implementing teacher-guided learning activities. 34 Two Major Considerations Underlie the How Tos of Teaching Teachers can foster early learning by

thoughtfully considering the foundations as they plan. Teachers can tap into the prominent role of play by encouraging the learning in childs selfinitiated play and introducing purposeful instructional activities that playfully engage preschoolers in learning. 35 Structure of the Foundations

44 Treasure Hunt: Part 1 As a table, create 5 questions that can be answered from the pages of your assigned domain. Write them neatly on the Question Sheet. Write answers to those questions on the Answer Key and seal it. Include page numbers where the answer can be found.

You have 20 minutes to complete this part of the activity. 45 Treasure Hunt: Part 2 Pass your Question Sheet and sealed Answer Key clockwise to the next table. You will now have a Question Sheet from another table. Check the top to see what domain you will be working in.

Find and record the answers directly below each question. Open the Answer Key and check your answers. You have 15 minutes for this work. 46 Strand - Substrand Order There is a developmental progression from three- to four-years-old within a substrand.

The order in which the strands and substrands are presented is not meant to indicate a developmental progression. 47 Frequently Asked Questions For Example: What is the relationship between the English-language development and the language and literacy foundations?

48 Frequently Asked Questions Activity Read the FAQ handout with an elbow partner and discuss two or three questions and answers that provided new information. Further questions about the foundations may be sent by email to [email protected]

49 CDE Web site The foundations are posted on the CDE Web site at At the Web address, the underlined Preschool Learning Foundations link takes you to the publication.
