Literacy Development for Toddlers and Twos Using Storytelling and Fine Arts
Wednesday, January 29, 2014 from 3:30 PM to 6:30 PM (EST)
The Smithsonian Early Enrichment Center is proud to offer an afternoon seminar to examine how you can enrich your infant and toddler program with children’s literature, art and objects.
Very young children thrive in an environment that is rich in exposure to everyday objects, stories and visual images. Age appropriate books, art prints and objects can appeal to toddlers and two year olds and help them understand the world around them. Develop this innate curiosity by creating an environment that supports arts-rich learning in your classroom while maintaining a sense of trust as you nurture the growth of each child.
This afternoon seminar will show you strategies and creative ideas designed to rejuvenate you as a professional and inspire your work with the children in your classroom.
