Just Playing Around: Teaching STEM Through Inquiry, Exploration, and Play, PK – Grade 1 – Science

Children are naturally curious, full of questions, creative, and playful. This four-part workshop series uses the concept of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) as play; children are engaged in asking questions, making discoveries, experimenting, working with others, and working toward proficiency in the VELS, NGSS and CCSS standards. The format of each workshop reflects this playful approach to STEM. Participants will interact with each other, ask questions, explore materials, and play. Participants in this workshop will leave with a STEM toolkit of ideas and simple materials grounded in: Using the outdoors as a learning environment that optimizes play and exploration; Introducing science phenomena, tasks and problems to spark curiosity; Employing strategies that encourage questioning and prompt inquiry; Using literature to thread science themes throughout the day; Reflecting and documenting with technology; and Scaffolding to include all learners and personalize learning.

The Empowerment Project: The Early Childhood Community as Agents of Change

The Empowerment Project is a FREE professional development series designed to help you: STRENGTHEN your voice, EXPAND your leadership skills, ADVOCATE for children and early educators, and BECOME an agent of change. Let’s Grow Kids is excited to bring Lisa Guerrero M.Ed. and Ellen Drolette from Positive Spin to the Upper Valley to present this innovative training. This project aims to infuse the public with revolutionary approaches to overcoming some of early childhood’s biggest challenges. Guided by the work of top leaders in the field of educational and systems change, inspired by the use of appreciative inquiry principles, and shaped by the collective wisdom of the participants involved, we generate a shared vision for our communities and use a social innovations lab model to design creative solutions to addressing the early childhood issues that impact our everyday lives. The Empowerment Project: The Early Childhood Community as Agents of Change supports the development of systems thinking and activates diverse community stakeholders to engage in positive social change for children and families. Over the course of the series, we work with early childhood communities to: Cultivate Hope by highlighting the community’s strengths and contributions, inviting people to identify as leaders and as advocates, and helping individuals and organizations reconnect to their sense of purpose. Build A Stronger Community by promoting and practicing systems thinking, examining biases and assumptions, defining a common ground, and engaging communities in developing a shared vision for the future. Embrace Uncertainty by exploring our relationship to individual and organizational change and reflecting on the common barriers to change, reframing problems as opportunities, and activating an effort for positive social change. Reimagine Power Dynamics by helping people identify their role in the early childhood system, supporting the building of alliances across sectors, providing a platform for participants to pitch action plans to local and state policy and decision makers, and flooding the public with motivated change makers and innovative ideas.

Power Struggles: Understanding this Potent Dynamic

Power struggles come from a variety of components; fatigue, stress, frustration, helplessness or the quest for autonomy and power. This presentation looks at avoiding responses that provide short term relief, but long-term grief. We will explore why effective reactions to children's power struggles come from understanding not simply the behavior but also its function, mainly the child's needs and feelings. Surprisingly, the answer to power struggles is not avoiding them, but rather to take out the defiance and learn from them. Our goal will be helping children advocate for themselves by having conversations which increase their autonomy and balance new privileges with new responsibilities.

Successfully Working with Challenging Behaviors

The problem with these labels is that they imply that the children's behaviors are contemplated and intentional. We quickly find that usual reward-and-punishment strategies do not work with these children. Working with these kids often makes people feel frustrated, overwhelmed, guilt-ridden, and exhausted. Sometimes we reach the point where we feel the situation is hopeless. So, what do we do? This session looks closely at these children and works to develop systems that help them, support you, assist their classmates, and empower their parents.

Plugged In: Pornography, Technology and Children

Children are now growing up in a world saturated by sexual imagery, internet access, and, frequently, pornography. This could be very different from the world their caregivers and teachers grew up in! As part of protecting children from harm, adults in this workshop will: a) analyze the potential impacts of illicit content on healthy sexual development; b) summarize potential healthy responses to the viewing of pornography by children. Tools will be provided to help families, teachers, and caregivers consider their options when it comes to helping to protect children from harmful messaging as well as to nurture healthy sexual development. This program is particularly for infant through after school (children up to 12 years old) teachers and care givers, and those who support them.
