Enhancing Cognitive Development through Dramatic Play

Rm. 410

Pizza parlors, Farm Stands, Doctors Office.... we are all familiar with using dramatic play to encourage social and emotional development. What if I told you that you could also use dramatic, purposeful play to encourage and authentically assess cognitive objectives as well? Join me for a discussion on how to strategically plan for the dramatic play environment in an effort to encourage literacy, language, science, and mathematical concepts and skills.

Moving Beyond the Pressures: Still Teaching in the Key of Life

Ballroom

Every day in ways rarely noted, teachers of all subjects and grade levels, in every town and city of this country, demonstrate the meaning of love. Participants in this interactive workshop will move beyond the pressures of standardized education to boldly reclaim the creativity, spontaneity, and the joy of teaching and loving children. As noted by Theodore Roethke, “Teaching is one of the few professions that permits love.”

Overview of Challenging Behavior

As an early learning professional, family member or other professional working with children it is hard to avoid encountering challenging behavior.

Factors contributing to challenging behaviors will be discussed along with some tools for supporting successful behavior.
