C6. Kindness, Friendship, and Learning to Get Along

Speaker
Leigh Anne Kraemer-Naser, Director, Curriculum Solution Center


Description
Early childhood educators often refer to children in their classroom as, "friends." But, how do we teach the core principles of kindness and friendship within the ECE classroom? This session explores formal and informal opportunities to teach about developing positive social interactions. Identifying how to create and sustain relationships will be explored along with examples for dramatic play, art, literacy, and whole group times will be shared.
