On September 18, 2010, Dawson Community College will host a workshop for grade school teachers and early childhood professionals. Jane Kitson, from Atlanta, GA will be on campus to present Leap Into Literacy.
Kitson is a national early childhood educational consultant and published author who makes language, literacy and learning fun. She will present material in a user friendly, fast-paced format that is practical and fun! Her hands-on techniques are the result of 27 years of experience in the early childhood classroom. The September workshop theme is Me, Marvelous Me and will incorporate original songs, fingerplays, and many interactive, hands-on activities.
One section of her presentation is called, "Make and Take." Workshop participants should wear comfortable clothing, because they will be active.
