Farris, Shari; Purper, Cammy – Dimensions of Early Childhood, 2021
One of the most impactful and transformative practices early childhood teachers can engage in is the practice of inquiry. Inquiry requires educators to be both fully present and fully engaged in professional practice while adopting the mindset that the cycle of inquiry is never complete.

Parks, Melissa; Oslick, Mary Ellen – Dimensions of Early Childhood, 2021
Educators strive to support their students as they develop into well-rounded, productive members of society.

Guirguis, Ruth V.; Longley, Jennifer M. – Dimensions of Early Childhood, 2021
Vygotsky (1978) describes play as having three main components, one being the ability for a child to create an imaginary situation, the second taking on and acting out roles, and the third, following a set of rules that were determined by the roles children took on during play during social or group settings. Hence, supporting much needed social…

Shamsi, Mushira – Dimensions of Early Childhood, 2020
In the heart of every early childhood professional lies the deep desire to reach, touch and inspire all children in the classroom so that they may bloom and grow to their maximum heights. Children who feel shy, perhaps because of the quiet cocoon they may live in, often get overlooked and may thus not reach the promise of their potential.…

Calo, Kristine – Dimensions of Early Childhood, 2020
For early childhood educators, social studies help young children learn what it means to be contributing, productive members of their family, as well as of their classroom, school, neighborhood, community, and the world. In PreK-grade 3 classrooms, children learn about rules--at home, in school, and in the community. While the need for social…

Deaver, Alicia; Wright, Lindsay E.; Herrington, Brittany – Dimensions of Early Childhood, 2020
Since social and emotional development in early childhood is so significant for success later in life and the foundation of the capacity for learning, it is essential for caregivers to build these capacities in young children through everyday moments (Russell, Lee, Spieker, & Oxford, 2016; Turculet & Tulbure, 2014). Caregivers who provide…

Beisly, Amber; Davis, Jill; Lake, Vickie E.; McCombs, Brandy – Dimensions of Early Childhood, 2020

Research has shown that there are many classrooms where appropriate activities are happening…

Greimel, Andrea – Dimensions of Early Childhood, 2020
The pandemic has required a huge shift in the locus of responsibility for the ongoing engagement of children (especially young children and children with special needs) with the educational process.

Minish, Siobian J.; McCorkle, Laura S. – Dimensions of Early Childhood, 2020
Educators are encouraged to form a collaborative partnership with the family as a way to learn about who the child is, work together to provide positive outcomes for the child, and to promote the capacity of the family to make decisions that work best for their child and the entire family. Though home visits are not explicitly stated as an avenue…

van der Wilt, Femke; Hofma, Rianne; Koster, Monica; van der Veen, Chiel – Dimensions of Early Childhood, 2020
Research has indicated that shared book reading that is characterized by interactive classroom discussion elicits relatively complex vocabulary and, consequently, contributes to children's vocabulary acquisition (Gonzalez et al. 2014). In addition, this type of book reading has also been found to be related to building listening, comprehension,…

Sturdivant, Toni Denese – Dimensions of Early Childhood, 2020
There is a prevailing myth that young children do not notice race (Doucet & Adair, 2013; Hirschfeld, 2012). While, in fact, infants as early as three months old notice race (Bar-Haim et al., 2006; Kelly et al., 2005). If numerous early childhood educators find discussing race and ethnicity inappropriate for young children, children could be…

Reed, Jolene; Lee, Elizabeth L. – Dimensions of Early Childhood, 2020
Children use language structures as a basis for learning how to read. Therefore, literacy learning for young children must incorporate the child's personal use of oral language. It is their personal oral language that supports them as they attempt new concepts and become better readers. Because of the important role that oral language plays in a…
