A little flour on the nose makes everything turn out better: How paying attention to the mixing of rituals and relationships can deepen bonds
If you are ready to go deeper and want to start identifying those "intangibles" that seem to make the difference in kids' lives over the long haul, join us for this session about how, through rituals (both formal and informal), we can help children make sense of time and of themselves and their place in the world.
If you can remember your grandma's pet name for you, even after all these years, this is the workshop for you!
Presented by Bob Kann
Using Humor with Children: Everyone’s a Winner!
Humor is a dynamic tool underutilized by early childhood educators. Humor can be used to build community, promote positive behaviors, cement relationships, reduce stress, defuse tensions, establish vibrant learning environments, and feel good.
Dr. Bob Kann shares some of the techniques of humor and strategies for developing a healthy comic mind-set. Any twenty-year-old with thirty years of experience working in child care will benefit from this session.
