This is session three of six for the series titled "Playful Learning"

NOTE: While we recommend that you attend all sessions of the workshop series to meet the learning objectives, each workshop can be attended as a standalone. Full members will also have access to view the recordings on-demand and earn up to six continuing education credits.

Workshop Description:
Successful classroom playdates are important for your preschoolers and elementary students' well-being. Well thought out curriculum and educational interest-based play dates are unique opportunities for our "littles" to connect with one another, learn how to interact with others in and outside of a school environment and strengthen relationships. Join Naomi Harm, a Genius of Play Ambassador, as she shares ten successful playdate ideas that can help children play, learn, and communicate together in a collaborative PreK 3rd grade classroom. Participants will also have an opportunity to design their own playful learning activities that they can immediately use with their students.

Learning Objectives:
  • Discover ten successful playdate ideas that can help children play, learn, and communicate together in a collaborative PreK 3rd grade classroom.
  • Grow your students social, emotional well-being and their learning confidence through interactive communication and collaboration learning activities, protocols, and design challenges.

  • Special Technology Instructions: Participants will need access to an internet device and a non-school, personal Google account. SimpleK12s Google Classroom will be utilized for the interactive and hands-on components of this workshop.

    Assessment: Participants will complete an exit ticket through a collaborative Jamboard to demonstrate their understanding of the workshop objectives and reflect on their learning.
