Much has been written about the “decline of creativity”. especially during the critical early yeas. At the same time there is growing evidence that there is a great need for thinkers, problems solvers, and innovators who can adapt to our changing world. This session will focus on the characteristics of young children, who are some of the most creative people in the world- finding ways to encourage their thinking, value their efforts, and help them gain confidence in their capabilities. It will also integrate, visual of young children and their creative efforts in language, science, math, social relationships art, music, movement, and play. Teachers will gain insight into a stimulating environment that will inspire young thinkers and support their creative development
