Experience the Power of Play - Get inspired and get moving!

Educators in the South Center Indiana area are invited to attend Playworks Power of Play and Group Management training. This full day of training is made possible by the Indiana State Department of Health, IU Health and the Monroe Owen County Medical Society and will cover the following:

Power of Play:

  • Ice Breakers - games to build community

  • Group Games - to engage large groups of students

  • Core Games - set up common games for inclusion and easy conflict resolution

  • Benefits of play - as well as barriers students face to play and how to address them

  • Next steps - best practices that can be implemented now

Group Management:

  • Building Rapport - learn what rapport is and how to build through play

  • Attention Getters and Signals - and a variety of ways to gain student's attention
