Early Childhood Professional Development Workshops

Presented in Partnership with Ready Readers

Thursday, January 10, 2019 from 4:30-6:30 pm at Powell Hall 

Join the SLSO Education Team to learn how you can use music and musical concepts in your classroom to introduce and reinforce early childhood curricula. With the children’s book Giraffes Can’t Dance by Giles Andreae as a centerpiece, you will learn engaging music techniques to excite and encourage learning and exploration that transfers beyond the book. Participating teachers will receive:

  • Free lesson planning tools
  • Lesson ideas for exploring and integrating music into current early childhood curricula
  • A free copy of Giraffes Can’t Dance
  • Dinner with peers and the SLSO Education Team after the workshop

Space is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis. For questions or for more information, please email sarahr@slso.org.
