Ohio Ready to Learn 1: Someone is Thinking…Learning Centers That Invite Exploration ***SUTQ-Approved***

A child’s reasoning and thinking skills can be developed by providing a wide variety of materials for exploration, and coaching the child to understand the difference between thinking and knowing. This workshop will provide ideas for activity centers and the teaching strategies that promote critical thinking.

Ohio Ready to Learn 2: Whole Child = Many Parts…Understanding Child Growth and Development ***SUTQ-Approved***

An introduction or review of basic child development, this workshop explores all the domains while appreciating the uniqueness of a child as a whole person. Developmental milestones, age-appropriate behavior, and predictable patterns of growth are also explored with the Approaches to Learning section of Ohio’s Early Learning and Development Standards.

Ohio Ready to Learn 3: Just Like a One Room School House…Activities for Multi-Agers ***SUTQ-Approved***

Lesson planning in a family childcare home has some interesting challenges. Children vary significantly in stages of development and interest. This workshop will demonstrate methods to scaffold learning activities to appeal to multi-age children, while valuing the fact that there are times for learning together, and times for learning separately.

Baby Teeth are Important! The Brush Oral Health Curriculum ***SUTQ-Approved***

Dental decay in young children continues to increase. From missed school, to an inability to pay attention because of pain and lack of sleep, dental decay can prevent a child from succeeding in school and reaching their full potential. Learn about the new Brush curriculum and how you can teach children to care for their teeth and keep their mouth and body healthy. Brush offers fun, multidisciplinary weekly lessons that meet a number of content standards. Brush will get children excited about their teeth and will teach them just how important their teeth are to their overall health, to doing well in school, to making friends and to feeling good about themselves!

Adapting Your Environment for Children with Asthma ***SUTQ-Approved***

Likely you have, or will have, a child in your care who has asthma. Do you know how to help that child avoid having asthma episodes, and what to do if an episode occurs? This workshop gives you the information and resources you need to provide excellent care for a child with asthma.
