Engaging Indoor Classrooms: Natural Materials & Loose Parts

Wednesday, 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm Free

Join Cindy Gennarelli, M.Ed., Director of Early Childhood Education Innovation at William Patterson University, for her upcoming webinar exploring opportunities to engage indoor classrooms using natural materials and loose parts.

About

This free webinar was designed to support the use of nature-based materials and loose parts in indoor classrooms. Common questions and concerns include:

    • How will these materials change the indoor environment?
    • Where do they go and how do I introduce the materials to the children?
    • How will these materials support children’s learning?
    • How do we integrate these materials without compromising the integrity of our curriculum and/or physical classroom space?

These questions and others will be discussed and answered. Photos of classroom environments, children’s engagement in inquiry-based, hands-on, STEAM-related explorations and discoveries will be used as examples. Examples will highlight the use of combining indoor classroom tools, materials, and equipment with outdoor materials to create richer learning experiences.

Learning outcomes will be relevant and aligned with approved developmentally appropriate curricula, pedagogy, children’s learning styles, and 21st-century skills. This webinar will be of particular benefit to pre-k teachers. Time for questions will be provided.
