Sylvie Tarnovsky and Nicole Knotts from the Child Development Center did a “Hands-on Learning for Your Little Ones” workshop on classified development day. The presentation provided an orientation to the center, information about communication/language/literacy, early math, science/sensory/art and the philosophy of “teaching with intention”.
In addition to the lecture portion (above), the team did a hands-on “cooking” project to demonstrate all the skills necessary to carry out the project, with an emphasis on science & sensory experiences. The attendees appeared excited to leave with their completed art and a bag of “rainbow-stew” in hand. One attendee even remarked this was the best workshop he had attended in 4 years of classified staff development day!
Well done folks!!
