Play it Forward Giving Circle invites you to the Legacy of Teaching Early Childhood Institute, an educational conference for early childhood educators to be held at the Riverside School in Danvers on March 8, 2014 from 8am-2:45pm.
Jack Outside the Box is the theme of this year’s Legacy of Teaching Early Childhood Institute.
Jack Hartmann is the keynote presenter for this year's annual Legacy of Teaching Early Childhood Institute. The theme “Jack Outside the Box” is designed to give teachers ways to teach curriculum that reaches children with different learning styles.
Jack is a nationally acclaimed musician/educator from Florida who will make sure everyone starts the day right. Early childhood professionals will have lots of fun singing, dancing, clapping and stomping through curriculum related to literacy, science, math, and social skills.
In addition to the keynote address, 7 local professionals will present workshops: Play, the New Four Letter Word; Documentation in the Digital Age; Active Bodies, Active Minds; The Power of Music and Video; Our “COLOR BOX”; Dough, Paintbrushes, and Hands; and Pajamas of My Dreams – a wonderful new children’s book and related activities by Laurie Collins and Margaret Florini.
Play It Forward Giving Circle, a fund of the Essex County Community Foundation, sponsors the Legacy of Teaching Institute. This annual event is planned and organized by an all-volunteer committee made up of local educators. Space is limited. Tickets are $80. Advance registration is strongly suggested.
