Videos of young children's play

    Hello NAEYC community!
    I am teaching a theories of play course this summer that typically includes 6 hours of IECE classroom observation. Students are to observe children's play to identify theoretical perspectives and different stages of play in action. Observations will not occur this summer for various reasons. Does anyone have suggestions for locating ~30 minute videos of children playing that might be suitable for this purpose? Videos would need to be sharable.
    Thanks for your thoughts-
    Meg

    I embedded videos from the teaching channel on different observations within the preK setting. We have a ECU program that has 24 hours of observation for preschool, so between that and NAEYC articles and discussion topics, I am not sure what else to implement.

    I absolutely love the Teaching Channel videos! However, they recently added fee memberships to view more than three videos over a period of time. Have you figured out how to embed those videos so students don't need to pay for the membership?

    A few sources I'm utilizing right now: EarlyEdU (open right now, ignore partnership stuff), their webinars have even more ideas, SCRIPT-NC, DREME-NC and EriksonInstitute for Math, sets of videos including the same child from Colorado's DOE Results Matter Video Library. Red leaf Press and HighScope also have video observation clips without narration.

    You might want to look into a membership with ACCESS Shared Knowledge and Practice for Early Childhood Educators. Although this organization was developed for Community College ECE Faculty they have a great video resource library with contributions from ECE Faculty across the country. My yearly membership as adjunct is $30.00 well worth the money.

    Here are two short YouTube links of young children engaged in play with open-ended materials that reveals a way of engaging children in contemplative exploration, creative thinking and imaginative story telling. I have also used the videos as a creative observational tool with parents, pre-service and in-service teachers.
