Calling All Learners: Creating Inclusive and Respectful Classroom Culture
Saturday, 06/03/2017 (09:00 AM - 03:30 PM)

Classroom with Children

“Helping young children understand differences: Getting to the roots of inclusion”

Young children are naturally curious and begin to understand the world by recognizing human differences from a young age. Early Childhood professionals have an important role in helping young children develop a foundation of respect and inclusion. This work shop will focus on practical strategies for helping young children understand and appreciated differences.

“Transitions, Traditions, Routines & Rituals: Learning where you would least expect it”

Putting coats away, transitioning from activity to activity, putting things away, washing hands, cleaning up, etc. etc. This things seem to happen day in day weather we think about them or not. By carefully attending to transitions, traditions, routines and rituals early childhood professionals have the opportunity to foster positive relationships, build social skills and create a positive classroom/program culture. This workshop will feature strategies and ideas you can use to build a positive classroom culture.

“Creating Meaningful Family Involvement Plans: Work Session”

Family engagement is a cornerstone of a thriving positive & respectful program culture. Family involvement in early childhood programs has been associated with positive child outcomes such as, social competence, communication skills, cognitive development and expressive language skills. This workshop will present a framework for creating comprehensive family involvement plans, which participants will create as part of the workshop.

Creating habitat for wildlife species in need - shrublands and young forests
Friday, 06/16/2017 (09:00 PM - 12:00 PM)

2017 NH Tree Farm Workshop Series Caring for Your Forest

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 





Recent timber harvesting and habitat improvement projects on the Hemenway State Forest in Tamworth created several large shrub and young forest openings beneficial to many wildlife species. As our forests have grown and matured, these young, ephemeral habitats have declined and so has much of the wildlife that depend upon them. Learn about how forest openings can improve the diversity of our forests and create high quality habitats. Join us as we use mist nets to capture birds to learn about their habitat needs. Participants should bring binoculars for bird viewing.

 

Attend one, two, three, or all four of the workshop series.
