In five days Tressa and I are heading to Atlanta for the 2012 NAEYC Annual Conference and Expo! It’s our first time, so we plan to soak it all in and blog about everything we see and hear! I’m hoping to take A LOT of pictures, and to share our experiences and things that we learn.
We are also fortunate enough to presenting “Through new eyes: Enhancing preschool literacy experiences” on Thursday morning (bright and early, folks!). Our workshop will be a combination of lecture, discussion and movement activities that will get everyone out of their seats and having fun! We’ll share tips and ideas for incorporating literacy experiences into all classroom early learning centers including art, blocks, dramatic play, writing, math and science. We’ll also talk about how literacy links to movement, and how music and movement activities can enhance language and literacy learning. Then, we’ll do some “Book & Boogie”, and Tressa will show everyone how they can create their own child-friendly choreography.
We can’t wait!! If you’ll be in Atlanta, hope you’ll stop by and see us!!
