Age Appropriate Activities
As students move through developmental stages, they need activities that are challenging, engaging, and appropriate for their particular stage. As many of us transition into digital programming environments, being mindful of developmental stages can help you create an engaging environment for your students to learn and thrive. During this training, you will discover how to use different activities, materials, and practices to match the appropriate developmental level of students.
Virtual Activities and Engagement
Two Truths & A Lie, Wonder Kits, Glitter Jars, and more! We all have our favorite activities to engage with students. But how do we do these activities now that we are virtual? Through interactive games and discussions, this training will provide staff with virtual activities that can be implemented through your virtual programming.
