School readiness, closing achievement gaps, partnering with families, and innovative learning are just a few of the reasons the early learning years are the most critical years in a child’s life.
In Hacking Early Learning, Kindergarten school leader, early childhood education specialist, and Minnesota State Principal of the Year Jessica Cabeen provides strategies for teachers, principals, and district administrators for best practices in preschool through third grade, including connecting these strategies to all grade levels.
“Hacking Early Learning gets to both the heart and mind of our youngest learners. The practical strategies allow the reader to set up an environment that works for everyone in the learning community. If you work with kids, or adults who work with kids, Hacking Early Learning is an essential component to your leadership toolbox.” –Joe Sanfelippo, Superintendent, Fall Creek Schools, Co-author of Hacking Leadership
This was a great book and a quick read. A lot of practical ways to implement success in the early years through data collection, communication with invested stakeholders, and play-based learning that promotes critical thinking and communication. Great read for administrators and teacher leaders in the early years.
Jessica's passion for early learners and the importance of meeting each child where they are to get them where they need to be is evident in every page and hack of this book. The hacks are easy to understand and can be implemented quickly! If you teach or lead, or are thinking of doing either, at the early levels you NEED to read this book and ensure your organization is putting all 10 hacks into place; your students, families, and community will be so much better off when you do.
