OUTSIDE PLAY: Bringing Back the Fun into Natural Play

About this Event
Do we really need to read another statistic about how much children spend inside or how much screen time they are getting? Come and enjoy a half or full day workshop completely based on outside learning and play. The ‘inside” traditional classroom is small and simple compared to the expansive “outside” classroom where kids learn hands-on through experiential learning techniques, play and sometimes getting a little dirty. You will learn a ton of games, activities and ideas that are transferable to the home, centre or school.

This workshop is OFFSITE & OUTSIDE. Dress for the weather.


Jeff Willis has been a Youth and Family Worker for over twenty years, he is the founder of Creative Toolbox and has been the Assistant Director of Res-Life at Simon Fraser University. As a skilled energetic facilitator and speaker, Jeff has spent over 25 years working with a variety of organizations using supportive, innovative and experiential techniques to improve team collaboration and staff effectiveness. His passion is derived from his breadth of understanding of experiential education, his various senior roles within the outdoor recreation  industry, successful entrepreneurial endeavours and a committed community advocate.


This workshop will be held at McLeod Athletic Park Picnic Shelter - 216 St and 56 Ave in Langley

Reggio Beyond Pinterest

About this Event
Reggio Beyond Pinterest: The Image of the Child

What we believe about children is reflected in everything we do in our   centres. Through a process based discussion, participants will uncover their personal Image of the Child and how that image impacts their practice. After a brief overview of the Reggio Emilia approach and the concept of the Image of the Child, we will take a critical look at common early years classroom activities and collaborate to think of alternatives that will lead to a more emergent, play-based learning environment. A framework will be provided to participants for examining their practice within a social-constructivist Reggio-inspired lens. Participants will leave with ideas about small and large steps to shift their practice to a more emergent, play-based one that matches their Image of the Child.

Reggio Beyond Pinterest: Early Years Spaces

In early years settings, the spaces we provide for children function as an  additional caregiver or teacher. Carefully designed learning environments enable and inspire children to become an advocate for their own learning. Join me for a workshop to uncover the pedagogical purpose of beautiful spaces and intentional materials of the Reggio Emilia early childhood centres. We will look at many examples from early childhood classrooms around the world to examine why certain elements are included and how they impact learning. We will then discuss how you may consider incorporating some elements into your practice. Participants will leave with some practical ideas about how to set up a classroom environment that inspires both themselves and their students to ask big questions, pursue their interests and share their ideas with others.

Reggio Beyond Pinterest: An Emergent and Responsive Curriculum

An emergent/responsive curriculum is when learning is guided by children's interests. An emergent approach empowers children to take risks, develop theories, and take ownership. This workshop will address starting points and strategies to support teachers who wish to implement an emergent/responsive curriculum. Highlighting classroom examples and learning stories, we will elaborate on practical strategies and discuss common roadblocks that we face when creating a “pedagogy of listening” in our practice. This workshop is for those interested in learning more about the Reggio Emilia approach to curriculum.

Karen Begley is  a teacher, most recently  in the Surrey School District. She works with educators of all levels to simplify their practice by aligning it with their values and beliefs about children, childhood, and learning. She is passionate about the rights of children, the power of unstructured play, outdoor education, incorporating families into the school community and learning process, and creating a respectful community and curriculum to empower young learners. She enjoys    mentoring individuals and groups of teachers through explorations of inquiry-based learning, purposeful pedagogy and place-based learning. She shares her thoughts and offers support for educators and parents of young children at www.connectionsinearlylearning.wordpress.com.

This is ONE workshop not THREE. A certificate will be given for 6 hours of instruction. PLEASE TAKE NOTE: The Lunch Break will be only 30 minutes, bringing a bag lunch is recommended.

This workshop will be held at the Langley CCRR - 20577 Fraser Hwy, Langley

Mistaken Goals of Behaviour

About this Event
Children engage in challenging behaviours, but as educators and parents we often ask why. Austrian Psychologist and educator          Rudolph Dreikurs described four goals of behaviour and proposed that children “misbehave” out of a mistaken assumption that they can gain social status with their own challenging behaviour.

° Objectives:

° To identify Dreikur’s 4 Mistaken Goals of Behaviour.

° To understand these goals and learn how to apply techniques to guide the children in our care.

° To explore helpful ways to respond to challenging behaviour.

 

This workshop is suitable for all early learning and child care professionals working with preschool and school age children, parents, instructors, students and administrators.

 

Sarah McCarthy has a Bachelor of Science in Education and Training, a Diploma in Early Childhood Education and Montessori (0-12 years), plus a certificate for Children with Special needs. She has been in the education field for over 15 years and has taught in Reggio, play-based and Montessori centres ; recently being the Early Childhood Program Coordinator and Instructor at a private college in Vancouver.
