Are you tired of telling children to be quiet, to sit still, to hurry up, and to slow down? Your schedule, routines, and expectations can make a classroom joyful or stressful for your children and for you! Join us to learn what Developmentally Appropriate Practices are and how they impact your work. We’ll contrast photos of organized classrooms and some that aren’t as great as we discover what makes an environment developmentally appropriate. You’ll leave this workshop with practical suggestions for routines and schedules, classroom organization, attention getters, and creative songs and movement activities to facilitate transitions. Dr. Cutler’s humor and compassion will help you re-discover the joy of a child-centered approach to teaching.

Please arrive 5-10 minutes before class. No children allowed.
