Join Naomi Harm as she explains how incorporating engineering activities can provide real world opportunities for children to empathize, make responsible decisions, actively listen, collaborate, and develop a growth mindset. She will also share some examples of engineering learning examples to support and nurture SEL in your early childhood classroom.

Thank you for this
Terrific! I LOVED fortune tellers/cootie catchers as a kid, but didn't think about using them in my PreK classroom! I went right to TPT and found a great one for 1.50 with all the letters and initial sound/pictures. Thank you!
