Virginia’s Foundation Blocks for Early Learning

Making Connections to Shining Stars

July 2013

Big Ideas

Integration of subject areas is key. Young children learn through meaningful and relevant experiences.

Oral language and thinking skills are key. Studies show that teachers get low scores on their ability to promote high-order thinking skills, offer quality feedback, and provide models for using language well.

Self-regulation is key. Research shows that self-regulation behaviors predict school achievement in reading and math better than IQ scores.

It’s a Set!

Foundation Blocks Rubric Quality Indicators

Roll-Out at the Local Level

Teachers need to be very familiar with content of each standard almost to the point of memorization so that integration can take place easily and naturally.

Use the rubric to check alignment of current curriculum choices—make needed adjustments.

Imbed the quality indicators in training, observation, and feedback.

Tools of the Mindis a research-based early childhood program that builds strong foundations for school success by promoting intentional and self-regulated learning. The instructional philosophy is inspired by the work of Lev Vygotsky. A Tools curriculum combines activities specifically designed to promote self-regulation with activities that focus on academic skills, while also giving children the opportunity to practice self-regulation and other executive function skills. A key feature of Tools professional development is the training of district staff to provide on-going coaching support to teachers as they implement the program.
