Lots of preparation went into today’s workshops. Dr. Lori Falcon presented her workshop about early literacy learning in learning areas Ana DeHoyos-O’Connor presented her workshop about behavior guidance using the classroom environment. Thirty three participants engaged in a session in the morning and then the afternoon. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves learning theories and and ideas from the presenters. One teacher told Lori, “we thank you for sharing new ideas; how to use things we have here. We can do this in our classroom.”
The teachers left with homemade play dough, origami books, norm charts and learning center signs. Lakeshore Learning donated bags for each teacher. Thank goodness the teachers had something In which to carry all their new classroom materials.
