Designing Interdisciplinary Play-based Activities for the Pre-k-1st Classroom

This workshop will focus broadly on how to design and implement curriculum in pre-kindergarten/kindergarten classrooms that are, or strive to be, interdisciplinary and play-based. We will explore ways to integrate social studies, language arts, math, science, and art activities. We will also explore ways to scaffold and differentiate these activities to make them more inclusive and to address a diverse range of student needs. The unique and specific contexts of your settings will be taken into account and discussed.
