Bringing Active Learning HomeWorkshops for Preschool Parents
Parent workshops can help parents bring active learning home to their children! The 27 workshops contained in this book, a part of the Teachers' Idea Series, help family members learn about and appreciate the importance of active learning by experiencing it the way their children do. The workshops, designed for preschool parent meetings, give parents hands-on experiences in large- and small-group activities that are fun and easy to do, and which teach practical strategies for interacting with children in everyday situations outside the classroom. Each workshop includes objectives, an opening activity, central ideas for discussion, an application activity, and follow-up ideas for practicing strategies at home. This book is packaged with a CD containing PowerPoint slides and handouts for each workshop.
