This workshop features activities that inspire children to think creatively and learn by doing. The activities also just naturally stretch learning across the curriculum.
Activities focus on developing:
Teachers each receive a workbook of original activities I've created especially for elementary school students. These are safe, easy-to-do activities using inexpensive materials usually found at home or at the grocery store.
Teachers will have an opportunity to perform these activities and be ready to put them into action with their students. Permission to reproduce the workbook activities is supplied to all those attending the workshop.
Some activities are for individuals. Some are just right for partners or teams. Others are whole class activities.
There are also book tie-ins for several of my books, including
TOAD WEATHER (Peachtree Publishers)
BUILD, BEAVER, BUILD! (Lerner Publishing)
WHAT IF YOU HAD ANIMAL EARS!? (Scholastic)
Plus a recommended list of books by other authors that are just right for reading aloud and sparking kids to think creatively.
There are also opportunities to share performing science magic that will spark a child's natural curiosity. And just because it's fun!
