I'm coming to Orlando
and I can't wait to see you!
The National Association for the Education of Young Children has their national conference in Orlando this week. NAEYC is always exciting, and mix that up with Disney World and Universal Studios and you've got a GOOD time!
I'll be in the Abrams Learning Trends Booth (#632) with all the Letter People on Thursday and Friday. We'll sing, dance, and do lots of fun make-n-take projects. Topics include handshakes, oral language, emergent math, action rhymes, emergent literacy, class books, cheers, and closing songs. Don't forget to bring your camera so we can take some pictures.
There will also be a Sing-Along Event Thursday from 4:45-6:30 at the Rosen Centre Hotel (Salons 1 & 2). There will be free food, drinks, prizes, and we're even going to have a "make a memory video" from 6:00-6:20.
Here's an idea for the next time you take a little vacation. Take photos and then put them together to make a book for your classroom. An easy caption for each page might be, "Teacher's name what do you see? I see tourist attraction looking at me."
Note! The teacher who shared this idea said her children loved the travel books that she made over the years. She said many of her children never went more than a few miles from their home, but they'd go to the classroom library and say, "Let's go to Disney World with Ms. Wilson today."
Hint! Collect free brochures when you travel for your classroom library.
