Using First Signs for Infants and Toddlers

The use of sign language enables young toddlers to communicate effectively during the pre-verbal stage of communication. Using first signs reduces tantrums, aggressive behavior, and limits noise in classrooms. Implementing simple signs stimulates and reinforces growth in developmental domains such as; fine motor, self-help skills, language, cognition, and problem solving skills.

Stack It Up with Blocks

The Block Center may be the single most useful center in the early-childhood classroom. Learn how to plan exciting play experiences in your block center. Engage young children to develop new concepts when building with blocks. Block play allows children of all ages to develop math, language, science and social skills while using their imaginations and boosting their creativity. We will look at the developmental stages of block play so we can observe what needs to be available for the children to enhance that stage and encourage them to move to the next stage. Join us as we identify ways to enhance block play by using accessories that increase appropriate developmental learning. CEUs will be offered with this training.
