    • Abstract:
      This document is comprised of four publications of the early childhood section of the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education: (1) prekindergarten standards related to social and emotional development and approaches to learning; (2) a teacher's guide to early social and emotional development and approaches to learning; (3) a parent's handbook for early social and emotional development and approaches to learning; and (4) a Bosnian-language [Serbo-Croatian] version of the parent handbook. The standards, developed by a broad-based group of individuals representing the multi-faceted Missouri early childhood community, provide broad descriptions of what most children should know and be able to do by kindergarten entry and represent a shared set of expectations for preschoolers in social and emotional development. The standards publication delineates the Missouri prekindergarten guiding principles and presents process standards, indicators of competency development, and examples of behaviors children may exhibit related to their knowledge of self, knowledge of others, and approaches to learning. The teacher's guide provides an explanation of the standards and offers practical suggestions for creating engaging, developmentally appropriate learning communities in which each child's social and emotional development is fostered and in which positive approaches toward learning can be cultivated. Also included in the guide are suggestions for communicating with families and a 51-item resource list of books, websites, magazines, and brochures. The parent handbook introduces the standards, provides information on how a child may exhibit progress toward a particular standard or goal, and offers suggestions for parental support of children's social and emotional development and the development of positive approaches to learning. The handbook closes with a list of general tips for parents, a 16-item bibliography, and a list of children's books related to feelings, fears, new siblings, death, divorce, relationships, moving, illness/surgery, and diversity.
