Parent-to-Parent

Have you missed a workshop?


If so, First Teacher understands! Life has a way of getting in the way of a parent's plan.  During our workshops, parents/caregivers share great ideas on how to easily fit school readiness activities into our already busy lives.    At First Teacher, we are always looking for ways to share our knowledge with each other in the moment.  Here are some examples from our workshops thus far:

September 2018: SELF-CARE SHOP        Fun fact: when we teach our children self-care practices, we provide them with the tools to recognize and cope with their emotions, a kindergarten-readiness skill!

October 2018: READ SHOP            Teaching our children the joy of reading can happen in many ways. Try creating a story with your child, write it down, read it to them, and then watch them beam with pride!

November 2018: EXPLORE SHOP       Exploring can be a messy way to expose our children to the wonders of the world. Don’t be afraid, make the mess in the name of learning - then teach them how to clean it up! Cleaning is exploration too!

December 2018: SLEEP SHOP              How is your child’s bedtime routine similar and/or different than your childhood bedtime routine? What does your child do to derail their bedtime routine? How often does your child go to sleep “on time”?

PICTURES FROM OUR SLEEP SHOP ARE COMING SOON!
