Join this timely webinar to learn how to create engaging, meaningful, and developmentally appropriate routines, rituals, traditions with children online during these challenging times.
As early childhood educators, our personal interactions with children have always been rooted in the physical classroom with real objects and close proximity. Now, due to COVID-19, we are scrambling to find ways to stay connected and continue to care for and educate the children in our programs. We find ourselves using online meeting systems to offer “classroom-like” experiences. But are they really meaningful? Do they proximate the hands-on, interactive, developmentally appropriate and meaningful experiences we strive to offer?
Join Jacky Howell, author of the NAEYC classic book, Rituals and Traditions: Fostering a Sense of Community in Preschool, to learn how you can offer FUN, rich, and meaningful online experiences with children, rather than offering activities to them. Learn from Jacky’s real-life adventures working with some of the best early childhood education programs in the Washington, DC area as they connect with children in their programs through online meeting platforms during the COVID-19 crises. You will hear how Jacky and these exceptional master educators have continued to provide routines, rituals and highly interactive experiences virtually, and how they are planning to extend them into their physical classrooms when they return after the immediate crises is over.
In this inspiring webinar, you will learn:
- the difference between facilitating experiences with children and providing activities to children
- how to establish routines, rituals, and traditions that work online and can be extended to the physical classroom
- see and hear about the exciting and engaging experiences offered by master early educators right now
