Register for Bounce From a Book: Creative Writing Experiences Inspired by Quality Children's Literature

During this presentation, participants will explore ways to use quality children's literature as a tool for creative and critical thinking in the early childhood classroom. From creating class quilts to creative art experiences and writing group stories, teachers will discover new ways to enhance children's literature that make the reading process a fun and engaging one. Participants will gain a deeper understanding of how to choose quality children's books to share with their classes and, perhaps most importantly, extend the texts throughout their classrooms. For teachers of Pre-K to first grade.
