Handouts for the session:

Additional Resources:

  • North Carolina Early Learning and Development Progressions: Birth to Five are an expansion of the North Carolina Foundations for Early Learning and Development (2013). The Learning Progressions break down the sequence in which children learn skills for emotional and social, health and physical, language and communication, and cognitive development. Skill descriptions at two-, three-, or six-month intervals allow teachers and families to observe and document a child’s current level of development and to track incremental changes over time.  Observation guidelines provide situations for observation of skills, strategies for eliciting the skill, if needed, what observed behavior indicates achievement of the skill, and routines-based intervention or embedded instruction.
  • Effective Teacher Practices Supporting the North Carolina Foundations for Early Learning and Development Module 2: Formative Assessment- Newly updated for 2020, this module seeks to help participants understand what formative assessment is and how it is used to inform instruction, identify effective early childhood evidence-based instructional practices that support formative assessment, and understand how to use formative assessment data for different data purposes. North Carolina Early Learning and Development Progressions: Birth to Five are discussed in this module.
