NAEYC 2019 in Nashville

Let’s reflect on our wonderful week in Nashville with thousands of Early Childhood Educators. What an exhilarating experience connecting with long time colleagues and new found friends!

Sonia and I visited our latest book published by NAEYC in their bookstore, Nurturing Creativity: An Essential Mindset for Young Children’s Learning.

On Saturday, creative teachers and students joined us in our early morning NAEYC session, “Nurturing Creativity Throughout the Day in Early Childhood.”

The problem posed: Create a sculpture using all the people in your group.

  • Collaborate to decide what you want to create.
  • Construct your original design.
  • Elaborate on your idea by using colorful scarves and flashlights to highlight your sculpture.

At the close of our session, they collaborated in group activity. Here are some of the Structures and Creations that were completed!

Let’s celebrate these Creative Early Childhood Educators who are supporting young children’s development!

Power to your profession!
