Fine Motor Boot Camp: Building play, language, cognition & fine motor skills using simple everyday materials
Saturday November 10 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm$99 – $119
Educators & caregivers are often “left in the dark” when it comes to fine motor & language interventions they can implement on their own. During this “hands on” workshop not only will you gain knowledge in these areas you will leave with many practical strategies & solutions on how to use little to no cost materials (i.e. dollar store, household, & office items) to build language, play, & motor skills.
There will be a strong emphasis on differentiating instruction to meet children at their developmental level with hands on experiences.
- Gain knowledge surrounding the importance of play, language development & fine/spatial/visual motor development in early childhood
- Utilize simple/inexpensive/ recyclable materials to connect play, language, motor, visual and cognition skills.
- Administer and upgrade or downgrade activities based on student needs (differential instruction) to meet varying levels of students’ needs.
- Learn practical RTI solutions for fine motor & language.
