PreK Beyond the Core: Supporting Self-regulation and Social Skill Development
Are you looking for new ways to encourage more positive classroom interactions? This workshop provides strategies and supports for building strong teacher-child and child-child relationships. We will examine more closely the ‘power of partners’ and how intentional work on building positive friendships sets the stage for better school readiness. Participants will join with other teachers in the region to discuss how communication and partnering with parents can support the development of these critical skills. Through interactive activities, participants will identify ways to strengthen emotion regulation through the use of music, make-believe play, communication and partnering with parents and leave with an action plan in hand.
