Training Title: Using Art as a Social Emotional Tool
Trainers: Amy Musick & Catherine Stroud
Description: Explore art in the classroom as a process rather than a product. Does your art change based on your emotions? What about the music that you play? Find out how art can be used in a therapeutic medium in your classroom to express emotion and to support content. Art projects will be based on developmentally appropriate activities for different age groups.
Date: May 19, 2021 1:00 – 2:00 pm
Training Title: Terrific Transitions! Strategies for Smooth Transitions in Diverse Early Childhood Classrooms
Trainer: Alison Mokry, MA
Description: In this session participants will learn ways to be planned and purposeful to ensure smooth transitions throughout the day in our increasingly more diverse early childhood classrooms. In addition, this session will focus on imbedding learning opportunities and being intentional to support our young learner’s independence as they move between activities.
Date: May 20, 2021
1:00 – 2:00 pm
Training Title: Building Interaction and Communication Through Play
Trainer: Jacquilyn Arias, MA, CCC-SLP
Description: Play is a foundational context for the development of communication and learning. But what about children who struggle to play with toys or others? Educators will discuss stages of play, how social skills develop within play, and how to promote interaction and communication within play. Strategies covered will focus on promotion of joint attention, social interaction, sensory regulation, and language development.
