This is session four of six for the series titled “Playful Learning”
NOTE: While we recommend that you attend all sessions of the workshop series to meet the learning objectives, each workshop can be attended as a standalone. Full members will also have access to view the recordings on-demand and earn up to six continuing education credits.
Successful classroom playdates are important for your upper elementary and middle school students' well-being. Well thought out curriculum and educational interest-based play dates are unique opportunities for our “middles” to connect with one another, learn how to interact with others in and outside of a school environment and strengthen relationships. Join Naomi Harm, a Genius of Play Ambassador, as she shares ten successful playdate ideas that can help children play, learn, and communicate together in a collaborative 4th – 8th grade classroom. Participants will also have an opportunity to design their own playful learning activities that they can immediately use with their students.
- Discover ten successful playdate ideas that can help children play, learn, and communicate together in a collaborative 4th – 8th grade classroom.
