Content has been a challenge that I am taking in.
This year 2014, the journey to AFCC was set to a different tone. It was aimed specifically for a purpose of revision and expansion.
The first 4 days merely to recharge and revive.
JOURNAL of DAY 1 – 31st May 2014
Below is the summary.
Day 1 was a day when all related topics of Children’s content were put in the discussion and perspective of early childhood educators and teachers.
+ through stories, children should be encouraged to ask question, communicating emotions and have fun.
+ some children need more than just story and engagement, that they need to move about with stories and content of the lessons that they had.
+ picture books for children need to be chosen wisely. The way method of using it as a tool for children to express themselves through creativity is another sets of skills need to be acquired.
+ Books for special needs children need to be wisely selected to enable them benefit the most from books.
+ Writers and illustrators who work on children’s book for classroom used have their own sets of challenges and happiness too!
There will be more content that need to be expanded.
See you again in the next post!
