Upcoming Education & Quality Trainings
3/6/19 -"Do you like the story?" Tell me why using effective feedback
With all of the daily managerial tasks, and unexpected interruptions, how can teachers make every minute count? Teachers in productive classrooms efficiently manage routines so that children have as much time as possible to be involved in learning activities. Well thought-out transitions and routines minimize disruptions and keeps the students engaged and focused. In this training, early childhood educators will learn the developmental importance and benefits of routine and transitions, as well as, strategies to incorporate in their classroom.
3/21/19 - More Than Just Teaching: Creating an Intentional Classroom Environment
Intentional teaching involves teachers being thoughtful, purposeful and deliberate in their decisions and actions. When preschool teachers use intentional teaching practices they take a more active role in the children's learning. This training will demonstrate how to set up the environment in a developmentally appropriate way to support a variety of instructional strategies in order to be intentional when teaching concepts to preschool children.
