Play-based Curriculum in the Early Childhood Classroom (preschool - 1st Grade)
Participants will explore the role of play in a content-rich and developmentally appropriate classroom. We will discuss the theory and application of play as a medium for learning in young children; the assessment of behavior and content through play; and the creation of play/learning environments in a variety of educational settings.
In addition, participants will learn how to communicate with families to calm their fears and clarify the educational value of play. Participants will leave with strategies and techniques to expand their current play-based curriculum, in both virtual and socially distanced classrooms, or introduce play-based activities to their traditional setting.
Focus On: Preschool - 1st Grade
