2022 CONFERENCE SESSION

SESSION: The Parts of The Brain: A Session For Kids

In this live session kids learn about the different parts of their brain and their functions! They will play hands-on games and activities, come up with silly names and stories to remember their brain parts, and read the new book in the Brian the Brain series with the author. Children will learn the structures of the brain that process emotions and memories!

The brain may be complicated, but this session helps simplify it so that kids can better understand how their brain works.

SESSION: HOSESSION: TEACH HOW TO LEARN - DEVELOPING A GROWTH MINDSETMESCHOOLING IN THE EARLY YEARS

Teaching our children how to harness their brain sets them up to learn any topic at any point in life. Encouraging them to develop a growth mindset sets them up to become lifelong learners. Learning is not linear, and teaching does not always go as planned, and that is OK. Life is not linear either and also does not always go as planned. Here are some ideas and strategies that can help your learners develop a more flexible attitude to learning and life.
