Hand in Hand
This three-volume video training series helps teachers develop stronger observation skills and learn practical strategies to support children’s cognitive, language, and social–emotional development intentionally in a play-based learning environment. Teachers also deepen their understanding of what happens when children cannot utilize play opportunities.
These lively, engaging videos demonstrate skilled teachers’ techniques for observing and intervening to support children who are shy or timid, who act out in frustration and anger, and who are unable to engage fully with classmates or materials. For teachers who work with children ages 3–8.
The Child Who Doesn't Play plus The Child Who Wanders: Introduces intervention strategies for children who wander—and miss out on learning—to make them feel more confident, focused, and involved.
The Child Who Dabbles: Highlights subtle dabbling behaviors and shows how peer support and intervention encourage risk-taking and add depth and involvement to dabblers' play.
The Child Who Doesn't Play plus The Child Who Appears Anxious: Reinforces the importance of developing and maintaining open communication with families, trusting relationships with children, and predictability and consistency in making children feel secure.
The Child Who Appears Aloof: Demonstrates the relationship between social skills, self-esteem, and school success, and offers strategies to support interaction among children.
The Child Who Doesn't Play plus The Child Who is Ignored: Demonstrates how to facilitate play, link children, and coach for effective communication.
