“I never realized the countless things one can teach with one book. This workshop exceeded my expectations. I 100% recommend” – Jazmine, previous trainee.
Have you ever used a children’s book reading in your preschool classroom with the intention of teaching a math skill? Have you ever used only one page in a children’s book to teach an entire lesson, rather than reading the whole book? Are you comfortable selecting high quality children’s books, that are culturally reflective, and also teach skills in multiple domains?
