Hello Early Childhood Educators!
Welcome back! We hope you had a very relaxing and rejuvenating summer! We look forward to not only seeing you again in the near future but hearing about your summer adventures!
Over the summer, both Erika and I have been working hard to find a variety of opportunities that will allow you to have immediate access to different resources that we hope will assist you in the classroom. In addition to the already available Pinterest and School Ready website, we are happy to kick off our School Ready Scoop Blog written specifically for Early Childhood advocates in Region 13.
Our School Ready Blog isn’t the only new addition! We have also added new trainings that will begin this September!! Some of which include: Desarrollando Lectoescritores en los Salones Bilingües de Pre-Escolar; Making Math Count in Early Childhood, and Teachnology: Technology Exploration in Early Childhood!
We are also proud to announce that the School Ready Team will be hosting a distinguished speaker: Conscious Discipline in the Pre-Kinder classroom!!
So….Please see School Ready Trainings Fall 2015 for more information! If you are interested in attending any of our new trainings from above, I suggest you sign up fast! Limited seating is available.
