We all have a desire to provide interesting and engaging experiences for our children. But we know that just having a well-equipped and beautiful classroom alone doesn’t support all those important moment-to-moment interactions.
In this edWebinar, Mary-Margaret Gardiner, CLASS Specialist at Teachstone Training, and Sarah Hadden, Ph.D., Senior Advisor for Research and Professional Services at Teachstone Training, explore intentionality in using your classroom setup to foster children’s engagement, connection, and opportunities to learn more about their world in a developmentally appropriate way. Participants will explore using Pinterest to generate ideas for classrooms and learn how to link CLASS-focused interactions to their planning.
Pre-K through elementary teachers will benefit from attending this session. There will be time to get your questions answered after the presentation.
