Fostering Creativity Without Breaking the Bank
Ways to add simple and cheap (whoo-hoo) items to your class to encourage creativity.
My yearly classroom budget was $50.00 Yet it was stimulating, exciting, and always had an added surprise provocation. Did I mention I had $50.00? Participants will learn tips to stock their classroom with creative pieces for FREE and low/no cost activities that will stimulate every little learner.
Documenting Your Teaching Process
Using a camera for documentation and communicating with parents.
You’re busy! Between putting out fires, guiding lessons, and entertaining children, you’re gathering documentation for everyone's’ portfolios...oh yeah...did I mention that every parent wants to know what their child did today? Wow! That’s a lot! Work smarter, not harder. Participants will leave with tips and formats to create amazing documentation that can also be used for newsletters and daily updates.
Enhancing Lessons with Sign Language (without being fluent).
The greatest day of my teaching career was when I introduced sign language to the class! I started in Fall and by Spring we had a completely quiet rug-time...completely quiet. Participants will learn how to add sign language to any lesson and leave with resources and lesson plan to get them started.
