    Easter Seals, one of the country’s leading providers of child development services, introduces a new video with a cast of animated characters to help parents understand the importance of monitoring their child’s development. Make the First Five Count (makethefirstfivecount.org) is a movement to ensure all children are entering kindergarten with the right skills to succeed alongside their peers. “Easter Seals is dedicated to ensuring all children have every opportunity to reach their full potential,” said Katy Beh Neas, Easter Seals’ Executive Vice President of Government Relations. “We’ve created this new video to help parents learn the basics of child development. At the new website, parents can find a screening tool and other information designed to support the well-being of children. Monitoring development should be treated as a common part of our annual routines, like spring cleaning or a trip to the dentist.” To view the Multimedia News Release, go to http://www.multivu.com/players/English/7172751-easter-seals-make-the-first-five-count/

        Creating Mathematical Opportunities in the Early Years Presenter, Dr Tracey Muir, for Connect with Maths Early Years Learning in Mathematics community As teachers, we are constantly looking for ways in which we can provide students with mathematical opportunities to engage in purposeful and authentic learning experiences. On a daily basis we need to select teaching content and approaches that will stimulate our children through creating contexts that are meaningful and appropriate. This requires a level of knowledge that extends beyond content, to pedagogy and learning styles. As early childhood educators, we can also benefit from an understanding of how the foundational ideas in mathematics form the basis for key mathematical concepts that are developed throughout a child’s school. In this webinar, Tracey will be discussing the incorporation of mathematical opportunities into our early childhood practices and considering the influence of different forms of teacher knowledge on enacting these opportunities.

                  I often get questions from parents about the best books, toys and games to buy for their child receiving speech and language services. While I have my list of favorites, they are just that, my favorites! Sometimes there is a game or two and/or a book that I do use as I am targeting certain goals but these items just work as "tools" the same as any other book, toy and/or game might work! So, what does this all mean? This means if you can put on your creative hat a bit (don't worry, I give you some suggestions in today's episode), then you can save your dollars and use what you already have in your home! Sounds good, eh? Another money-saving tip that I recommend to families is toy-cycling. This is worth looking into as well! We all know that some kiddos have a specific set of toys they love and can play with for months on end. But then there are other kiddos who are bored of the same toy within a week or even days of first playing with it! So put a lock on your wallet and watch today's episode :)
