- Using Children's Literature to Inspire Provocation
21 October 2021
6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION: Come join us as we explore some favourite children’s books and look at the possibilities connected to them in creating provocations. We will go beyond using books at circle time and find ways that stories can be used to promote creativity and hands-on exploration in curriculum development and project work. We will also talk about how books can be used to enhance and extend children’s interests that have already been observed. Come ready to explore, share and collaborate, and leave inspired with the many possibilities that books hold.
