In this webinar, Kim shared ways to use puppets, games, activities, props, and songs to develop meaningful lessons that will grow dendrites—connections within the brain that make children smarter– as they learn letters, rhyming, word families, story elements and much, much more! Discover ways to stir up some literacy success in your little learners when you develop activities that appeal to the different multiple intelligences. Kim also shared a plethora of ideas that develop the love of reading. She modeled how to take a selection of literature and develop a strategic lesson that will have your little ones applying their learning to new pieces of literature. Kim says, “The brain learns by pattern, but seeks novelty.” In this webinar see just what that means in action!
- Using puppets, props and other novelties with purpose.
- Identifying activities that produce dendrites.
- Developing strategic lessons for teaching the literature standards.
