Introduction to Responsive Interactions:
Learning is like building a house. The foundation for the “House of Early Learning” is Oral Language. The bedrock for the “House of Early Learning is Responsive Interactions.
Responsive Interactions (Definition)-Developing trusting and nurturing relationships with children that are loving, joyful, engaging and playful in a culturally sensitive environment.
In small groups, we reviewed and discussed the attached responsive interaction indicators. We celebrated the ways in which we are currently responsive with our children.
A Parent Ambassador led the group in an Responsive Interactions Relay. Each team read scenarios and decided if the parent-child interaction was responsive or unresponsive. We discussed ways to make the unresponsive interactions more responsive.
