We All Learn Differently - For parents, the COVID-19 global pandemic has pushed many of us into a certain level of teaching. With provincial online learning plans, many of us are faced with providing support for our children, which can lead to some severe frustration on behalf of both parent and child. This one-and-a-half-hour class will explore ways to discover different learning styles and present practical ways in which to respond to bring back the fun in learning. You will also learn more about FNTI’s early childhood education program, which is grounded in Indigenous culture and ways of knowing.
Decoding and Validating Your Child's Feelings to Live in a Good Way - Children need adults to connect words with feeling. Teaching young children about their feelings and the feelings of others forms the foundation of children’s social-emotional development and how to live life in a good way, which include their ability to regulate their feelings and have empathy for others. Join this one-and-a-half-hour session to learn more about helping your child develop skills that are essential for successful relationships, and to learn how our most powerful teaching moments are those we share with our children as a part of everyday life. You will also learn more about FNTI’s early childhood education program, which is grounded in Indigenous culture and ways of knowing.
Foundations of Teaching Reading in Support of Lifelong Learning - No matter how much the world changes, a true constant remains: reading and writing are the key to lifelong learning. This class will explore positive ways with which you can practice literacy in your home using resources that are readily available to you and your child. You’ll be surprised to learn how a global pandemic might create just the right circumstances for igniting reading and writing skills like never before! During this one-and-a-half-hour session, you will also learn more about FNTI’s early childhood education program, which is grounded in Indigenous culture and ways of knowing.
