The early childhood classroom is an amazing place for learning, but it can also be difficult for little ones to transition between so many activities while staying focused on their tasks. This webinar will help early childhood teachers learn practical ways to engage kids in the early childhood classroom to help them self-regulate and focus on learning (while having fun!).
Attendees will learn to incorporate sensory self-regulation strategies by designing solid classroom routines, adding movement opportunities like brain breaks, and using flexible seating and other manipulatives like fidgets to help kids participate to the best of their abilities.
There will be time for questions at the end of the presentation. Register Here
