Workshop: Starting the school year and the importance of the preliminary exercises

Course content
Starting a new class, integrating new children into the existing class, many new entries at the same time. These are some of the challenges we often face at the beginning of a school year. We would like to show you how the preliminary exercises, the exercises on grace and courtesy as well as a variety of oral language games can provide you with valuable support during this time. What it takes from you as a teacher at the beginning, what support you get from the prepared environment and how it plays an essential role are some of the main topics we will address in this workshop. There will also be enough time for sharing experiences and tips and tricks.

Course participants
This workshop is aimed at teachers. The course content is meant for the age group 3-6.
