love for the littles
Early Childhood Learning Specialist
Let's be real! A preschool classroom to the outsider can look pretty chaotic but to those in the know, like you (Teacher of Littles), you see Littles being artists, parents, engineers, trying to figure out their world through play. And you feel like you aren't giving each child the attention they need. #realtalk not everyone knows how to play effectively.
Fair is giving each person what they need.
You want to pour love on your Littles but honestly, you are out of ways to connect.
How do I connect with that child struggling with play?
Because let's face even Superheroes need lifelines. That's where I come in.
