What the World Needs Now: Creative Young Children who can Communicate, Collaborate, and Problem Solve.”

Sonia Yoshizawa and I will be sharing the skills that are essential for our Young Children to thrive in the 21st Century.  It will a lively time with wonderful visuals, real stories, and lots of laughter.  We will also be sharing some unique ideas that can be used in your classroom to spark creative thinking in your children.

New studies have identified a frightening decline in young children’s creativity. The challenge is that young children in our classroom today will be living in a very different world with expanded knowledge, new jobs, and challenging issues. We want to nurture our creative thinkers so they will be able to be successful in this changing environment.  An essential element in this process is creative teachers who can inspire and value innovative ideas, encourage their communication, and provide opportunities to collaborate.  Together we can build on the positive abilities of young children and design a fascinating environment that will support and challenge their creative thinking.

Come join us to be inspired and ready for the challenge of “What the World Needs Now.”  

Let’s connect and find ways to build creative thinkers!
