A Day in the Life of a Preschooler

March 16, 2011

I’m excited about attending the National Head Start Conference in April.  It’s in Kansas City, MO this year and, once again, my training partner, Ellen Booth Church and I are offering our day long seminar, “A Day in the Life of a Preschooler.” Sometimes we adults get so caught up in the requirements, challenges and day to day grind that we forget what life is like in a child’s shoes.  In our seminar we allow ourselves to be little people again.  Sing songs in circle time. Play math games. Pretend that we’re statues!  Tell each other stories.  And as we play, we learn — just like children do.  We also take the time to model and discuss what CLASS (Classroom Assessment Scoring System) looks like in practice.  And we have a great time as well! So — if  you’re coming to NHSA this year, sign up for our training session.  Play works!

    I really enjoyed the “A Day in the life of a Preschooler” workshop I attended at the NHSA conference this month. I used the technique to distribute and keep the musical instruments quiet and was pleased when it worked! It was a positive way to keep things calm until the children let loose and played their instruments!
