December 4, 2017, 3:30 – 6:30 | Literacy Development for Toddlers and Twos using Literature, Art, and Objects
Very young children thrive in an environment that is rich in exposure to everyday objects, stories and visual images. Develop this innate curiosity by creating an environment that supports arts-rich learning in your classroom while maintaining a sense of trust as you nurture the growth of each child.
March 2018 | Supporting a Child’s Positive Sense of Self using Literature, Art and Objects
At a very young age children develop a sense of who they are and make connections between their heritage, families, and communities. Reflect on how to use collections, cultural artifacts and everyday objects to support a child’s positive sense of self.
