At the end of the edWebinar, attendees will be able to plan learning center activities that are evidence based, accessible to children, and deliberately connected to disciplinary studies, and assemble an array of learning centers intentionally designed to provide children with multiple learning pathways.
Studies suggest that young children engage in substantial yet informal mathematical thinking during play. Mr. Mowry will discuss how exploratory and dramatic play contributes to young children’s cognitive development and how to bridge this learning to support mathematical competencies related to numeracy, shape and spatial awareness, measurement, classification, and patterning.
Mary Jo will engage us with her high-energy, interactive visit. She will share delightful stories, books, props and musical fun. Mary Jo also will show simple ways to play with language, use imagination and create wonderful places for children to share and learn through the power of educational play. Her enthusiasm will motivate you and give you ideas for being creative and using your imagination.
