Wonders Child Care - In-Sync Activities to Promote Children's Learning, Social Participation, and Fun! An Evening of Learning for Parents and Educators with Carol Kranowitz|
Simple and fun activities to develop social, cognitive and motor skills in children. Carol will provide parents and educators with hands-on activities that will
encourage kids' active participation in the three-dimensional world. The activities emphasize social interaction and communication, heavy work, messy and not-so-messy play, body awareness, balance, rhythm and timing, visual-spatial and auditory-language processing, motor planning, crossing the midline, and calming down. You will see that equipment need not be fancy -- string, sticks, spoons, bicycle inner tubes, boxes, exercise bands, and even toilet plungers (new) are marvelous implements of fun. All the ideas that can be packed into an hour are easy to incorporate into your classroom or home.
