Materials and Activities Part 1 (Virtual)

October 26, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm


In this two part training series participants will learn what toys and equipment to include in each learning center based on the way materials are assessed in the Environment Rating Scales.  We will also focus on why the specific materials are important to children’s development and how teachers can use these to promote children’s learning and developmental growth.  At the end of each workshop, child care staff will be ready to accurately inventory their classroom and make adjustments to their environment and teaching practices to enhance learning.

Part 1 will focus on science, fine motor, math and block
Part 2 will focus on dramatic play, books and literacy, creative art and sensory, and music and movement.

You are not required to take both part 1 and part 2 in order to receive credit but it is highly encouraged that you attend both in order to maximize learning opportunities in your entire classroom.

Presented by: Pam Anderson
DCDEE Credit Hours: 2.0
Registration Deadline: Friday, October 22nd
