Get FREE Ohio Approved Hours!

Check out our upcoming online trainings!

Southwest Ohio AEYC is thrilled to be able to offer FOUR different, three-hour, Ohio Approved trainings conducted by Dr. Jenni Jacobs, founder of The Learning Professor, and sponsored by Learning Grove.

 

 

Each training will be offered in a hybrid format. Registrants will complete 2.5 hours of asynchronous learning through The Learning Professor with an additional half-hour, online, synchronous learning portion. Registrants must complete BOTH the asynchronous and synchronous portions to receive Ohio Approved credit.

Spots are limited and registration will be on a first-come, first-served basis. After registering for the training, you will immediately receive confirmation for the synchronous portion. Within two business days, you will receive information from Dr. Jenni Jacobs on how to access the asynchronous portion online.

Please see below for information on each training. We look forward to supporting your professional development!

 

 

Creating Neural Pathways for Literacy

Saturday, May 30, 10:00 AM - 10:30 AM

Note: The 2.5 hours of asynchronous learning must be completed before this date/time.

Reading is not a natural process, and some children struggle more than others. The field of neuroscience has used brain imaging to help us understand what happens as children learn to read, and this information can help teachers better prepare children for later reading success. In this class, we will explore how to activate the necessary region of the brain that is required for reading and review the types of practices that are beneficial to children. Specifically, you’ll explore how the neural pathways for reading are constructed, the role of phonics and handwriting in reading instruction, why neuroscience supports phonics over whole language, the role of vocabulary in reading, and practical strategies for the preschool classroom that support these research findings.

Creating Your Science Curriculum

Tuesday, June 9, 10:00 AM - 10:30 AM

Note: The 2.5 hours of asynchronous learning must be completed before this date/time.

Science exploration comes naturally to children. Yet many of the science activities that are available online and even in stores are actually not appropriate for preschoolers. This workshop is designed to give you a background in the types of science experiences that preschoolers should have access to in an early care program. You will explore the specific factors that determine whether an activity is appropriate for preschoolers. You will learn about setting up a science area and the 3 areas of science curriculum that should be part of every early childhood classroom: physical science, life science, and earth and space science.

The Quest for Empathy

Wednesday, June 24, 1:00 PM - 1:30 PM

Note: The 2.5 hours of asynchronous learning must be completed before this date/time.

In order to help children develop empathy, we first have to truly understand it ourselves. This workshop will take a deep dive into empathy and will explore the following questions: What is empathy? What are the different types of empathy? How does it differ from sympathy? Why are boundaries important? What are the roadblocks that get in the way of empathy? What are some strategies to help develop empathy in children? Understanding the answers to these questions form the foundation to being truly empathic yourself, which is a prerequisite for being able to teach empathy to children in the classroom.

I Was Born This Way: Understanding Temperament in Infants & Toddlers

Wednesday, July 8, 1:00 PM - 1:30 PM

Note: The 2.5 hours of asynchronous learning must be completed before this date/time.

Not all children sharing a classroom behave the same way, although they all may be in a similar age group. This workshop will explore the different aspects of temperament and how to use this knowledge in your child care setting to create a goodness of fit between you and the children in your care. When you do this, you’ll find that you create a much more peaceful classroom environment. Geared towards infant and toddler teachers.
