For the kindergarten cohort, learning how to set up your outdoor space and creating an environment that provides a ‘third teacher’ is imperative. The goal is to create an outdoor area that provides sensory-rich activities, big body play, and loads of opportunities for children to connect, challenge and problem-solve. Consistently using the outdoors will support independent learning and an increase in attention and focus, plus provide many opportunities for social collaboration and self-regulation.
We will focus on creating 2-3 different opportunities for unstructured, child-led free play that focuses on motor skills and creativity as well as an additional station for more formal learning that reinforces new skills in math, language and science. Each webinar will focus on unstructured free play activities that support the weather as well as a structured activity. The lesson(s) will be presented to the group and discussed. Handouts will be emailed following the webinar. For the event site, click here.
