Workshop Descriptions:

Games and Activities to Optimise Self-Regulation - Ever Active Schools:

A strong relationship exists between the development of executive functioning skills and self-regulation. The Centre on the Developing Child at Harvard University identify executive functioning andself-regulation as “critical supports for learning and development.” Though we are not born with these abilities, “we are born with the potential to develop them through interactions and practice.” When children and youth have the opportunity to develop the skills needed for self-regulation, they are better suited to make healthy choices that affect them and their classmates. Join Ever Active Schools as we explore how after-school programs are the optimal settings to promote these skills through fun, creative and original activities.


After School Style - Be Fit For Life:

Be ready to learn fun, engaging techniques to get your program moving forward with brain breaks. Through a variety of Be Fit for Life recourses, we will teach you how to provide a program that works for multiple ages, abilities, and interests. You will get to physically try out the resources with game play that works for learners who need to accomplish homework and play in both a structured and unstructured environment. The games associated with education and play will sharpen student’s spelling, knowledge of animals, orienteering, fundamental movement skills, and more which are all essential for future development.
