Incorporating Early Childhood Practice Into Online and Socially Distanced Classroom

In this constantly evolving world, how does our teaching practice adjust while keeping the core pieces of an early childhood setting alive and well? How do we keep the feeling of community, connection and joy present while remaining socially distanced or working together remotely? The strategies, lessons and ideas introduced in this course can be adapted to meet the needs of a wide range of learners and across various learning environments. This course will incorporate a framework for play, ideas for play including storytelling with puppets, and other shared experiences that allow children to process their feelings, connect with others, maintain relationships and build resilience, while also strengthening the home-school connection. This workshop meets online eastern time.
