ECRR2 and Early Learning Standards (North Carolina) Word pdf
A chart showing the five practices in terms of one state's Early Learning Standards. By developing a similar document for your own state's early learning standards, for infant/toddler standards, and for Head Start Child Outcomes, you can share this document with early childhood educators as an introduction to ECRR. You can use it to describe your trainings for child care providers or to describe trainings to offer their parents. It can also be used as a tool for library staff to become familiar with the state standards and how they relate to the five practices (and the underlying early literacy components).
