Columbus Academy’s successful Early Childhood Learning Series will continue in 2013 with three free seminars by leading educators that will be open to the public.
The next seminar on January 9 will focus on “Developing Independence and Self-Help Skills in Young Children” by pre-kindergarten coordinator Lisa Spolter. Her utilization of responsive classroom techniques and literacy workstations to provide hands-on learning and differentiation in her PreK classroom was captured in this TEACHERTALK VIDEO.
On January 22, first grade teacher Julie Simmons will present “Tech Time with Your Child.” Her TEACHERTALK VIDEO caught the attention of CBS News producers and resulted in this NATIONAL COVERAGE last May.
The final session will have JoAnne Adams, Academy’s physical education department chair, demonstrating “Physical Development Through Movement and Play” on February 5. The emphasis on healthy lifestyles is ingrained in Academy’s culture, where the MISSION STATEMENT promotes development of the complete person: mind, body and character.
All sessions will begin at 9:15 a.m. in the school’s Academy Hall (CAMPUS MAP). For further details and to RSVP, call 614-509-2220.
