Connecting the Dots: ASQ to Standards-Based Outcomes to Planning and Guiding Children's Play

with Dr. Gayla Lohfink

March 3, 2020
8:30 am - 2:30 pm

at the Southwest Plains Conference Center
810 W. Lark Avenue, Sublette

ASQ data analysis begins the "what we do" as teachers to intentionally align the five developmental areas of the ASQ-3 and the seven behavioral domains of the ASQ:SE-2 to KS standard-based outcomes and given curriculum resources. Purposeful play offers a pedagogical approach for children to naturally inquire and investigate hands-on materials, problem-solve, interact and communicate with others, experience autonomy, and gain content knowledge in various disciplines. Working toward a learning goal is an intentional focus of purposeful play.  The "how" to focus on that goal involves planning play units, gathering resources (like picture books), and then interacting within a child's play to foster inquiry, oral language, and vocabulary, among other content learning and skills.

  4. Identify picture book resources to utilize within play units
