WORKSHOP SCHEDULE

  • Saturday, April 16, 2011
  • 9:00 am – 12:00 pm Moving to Learn

Watch any child and you will see that their bodies love to move. Brain research tells us that motor development is important for neural processing, especially for children who are primarily kinesthetic learners. Children truly must move in order to learn well, and adults need practical strategies for developing purposeful movement experiences that work in indoor and outdoor settings. Attend this workshop to discover effective techniques for providing preschool and elementary children movement opportunities that can help them in three key ways: gaining body control, gaining knowledge about the world and having positive outlets for emotional expression.

  • 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm The Importance of Visual-Spatial Learning

Gain new ideas and tools for providing more authentic learning opportunities for preschool and elementary children in both built and natural environments and through purposeful movement. Through active participation you will build on group expertise while reconnecting with the joy of learning and new discoveries. Practice techniques for supporting each child's unique talents and abilities, and learn ways to use the natural world as a link to oral and written literacy. If you would like to enhance your work with children and families while becoming more aware of all learning modes, especially visual-spatial learning, then this workshop is for you.

  • Certificates will be given for training hours attended.
  • Fee is $75.00 for both workshops, $40.00 for either workshop individually, $8.00 (optional) for an organic lunch.
