Kindergarten is a magical place where children and adults grow and learn together!
In this webcast, you will step inside a Kindergarten classroom that is alive with authentic learning experiences that engage young children in thinking, reading, writing, speaking, listening, creating, representing, and problem-solving in an integrated fashion.
You will meet a number of experienced Kindergarten teachers along with a group of other early years experts who will share their insights about classroom organization, assessment, and planning so as to create an organized environment that encourages independence, fosters oral language development, and stimulates maximum growth and achievement for all children.
By carefully observing and documenting children's strengths and areas for future learning in terms of the whole child, you will learn how Kindergarten teachers plan purposeful and playful learning experiences that enrich each child socially, emotionally, and intellectually – these are truly the building blocks of learning!
The purpose of this webcast is to inspire dialogue, reflection, and action. The following questions are provided as a guide for further professional conversations
"Early learning experiences are crucial to the future well-being of children and establish the foundation for the acquisition of knowledge and skills that will affect their later learning and behaviour."
"Children thrive within classrooms that meet their physical needs and developmental needs and that provide a secure, respectful, and nurturing environment."
The Revised Kindergarten Program, 2006, p. 1
