Virtual: EC Teacher Book Study: “Play: The Foundation of Children’s Learning”

July 14 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

Early Childhood Teacher Book Study

6 Wednesdays – Beginning on July 14th

                             12:30pm to 1:30pm

Join us as we read “Play: The Foundation of Children’s Learning,” written by Lisa Murphy.  Discover why play is school readiness with this updated guide. Timely research and new stories highlight how play is vital to social, physical, cognitive and spiritual development of children. Learn the seven meaningful experiences we should provide children with every day and why they are so important!

A book study is a way for a group of people (in this case, early childhood teachers) to come together to have meaningful conversation with one another. It will be an opportunity to engage with one another on thoughts, reflections and new ideas from the readings and how they can apply to your teaching goals. Please join us for a reading of “Play: The Foundation of Children’s Learning.”

How do I participate? You will be sent a Zoom link for each week of discussion; we ask that you have your video on for the discussion if you are able.

What is my obligation for attendance? Full participation in all Zoom sessions and reading the assigned chapters is required. There will be a short survey after each session as well as a short assignment to turn in after the final session (you will have time to work on this during our final session).
