What you'll learn

A poignant first Learning Story can set up a great year of family collaboration. Dr. Isauro Escamilla reviews where to look for early inspiration.

Now that the new school year is about to start, early childhood educators will be witnesses to children’s “first moments” that they can capture and preserve in Learning Stories.

This could be a child’s first day in preschool, the first time a toddler stood and started the wobbly walk, or the first time a five-year-old lost one of his baby teeth.
