Young Children Playing Their Way into Understanding the World

June 18 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join us to consider ways of creating global understandings with young children. This free workshop, sponsored by TREC and WOW, will be in-person in the Worlds of Words Center. Register on the TREC website.

Explore the ways in which young children can interact with global books through play to feel connected with global cultures and to develop open-minded perspectives about new ideas. Participants will have the opportunity to interact with new global books and examine what kinds of global books are appropriate for young children. We will also explore invitations for play that can be integrated into centers in the classroom.

Participants will receive book lists and a handout of play invitations as well as new global picturebooks to take back to their early childhood classrooms.

The workshop will be led by Kathy Short, Loren Reyes and Deonna Tourtellot.
