Thanks for this description Meg, it mirrors many of the discoveries I have made doing a mixed age remote family program. I really like how you have outlined the key components of remote engagement. I hope you don't mind me paraphrasing your work. I was consolidating your response for my own notes and then I thought, why not share?1. Maintain rituals (often in the form of singing.)2. "Parallel play" where all mics are on, with similar or identical materials, modeling play, including participant suggestions and extending play. (I loved your idea for creating categories of found materials to play together with!)3. Recorded story (in my case I do a prerecorded "picture walk" or another kind of book experience, speaking directly to the child, Fred Roger's style)4. Most important of all: find opportunities to make personal, by name, contact with each child as often as possible: both during go rounds and during the parallel play period.5. Keep sessions short and active, involve caregivers in repeating experiences offline and using videos provided.6. Enjoy and observe the families in their own spaces.
