Upcoming Spring Workshops
Games can promote learning in the classroom, as well as cooperative learning on the playground. This collection of games and mixers is designed to connect students across diverse backgrounds, promote communication and enrich the classroom culture. Many of the concepts will also augment existing teaching techniques. Variations of these games are appropriate for students of all ages. The instructor will have his books and DVDs available for sale during the workshop.
Let Post-Impressionist painter Van Gogh invigorate the education. We’ll investigate Van Gogh’s subjects. We’ll link children’s literature on the artist (both biographies and Van Gorgeous fiction) with multi-themed crafts applicable to pre-school through 5th. Vincent’s vivid palette will vibrate from Van Goo cupcakes, Van Glamorous hand-painted totes, VanGlorious radiating, spiraling Starry Nights, and vivacious scintillating and sparkling sunflowers.
