Intentional Teaching – the Importance of Large Motor Play (Online)

Tuesday, November 8, from 6:30-8:30 pm

Kicking balls! Flying kites! Pedaling a tricycle! Large (gross) motor skills - are one set of developmental milestones teachers need to know and understand. In early childhood, it is the development of these muscles that enable the baby to hold his/her head up, sit, crawl and eventually walk, run and skip, These skills are developed as children are encouraged and provided opportunities to learn and practice movements like walking, running, jumping, climbing and balancing. Current brain development teaches that consistent engagement in gross motor development improves attention and memory, necessary skills for learning, and better school performance. Come learn the developmental milestones and fun ways to help children develop gross motor skills. (Trainer: Nancy Heathman, The Family Conservancy) Free training sponsored by Educare.
