TEACH PLUS LIVE LESSONS FOR PARENTS WITH YOUNG CHILDREN
Teach Plus is offering Itsy Bitsy Lessons designed for parents sheltering in place with very young children struggling to balance work and educating their children. These daily, free, online sessions will be led by experienced early childhood educators who will model activities using common household items that parents can use the next day with their young children. They will take questions from parents and provide tips for differentiating for ages from birth to 5 years old. The sessions are organized with Teach Plus in partnership with the Illinois State Teachers of the Year and the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards. Parents can join live each day at 8 p.m. at https://www.facebook.com/pg/teachplusIL/videos/. The video recording will also be available at the same site for those unable to participate in the live session.
