Let's Take It Outside! Literacy and Math in Your Schoolyard

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Whether your schoolyard resembles a nature paradise or a concrete jungle, it can be an endless source of inspiration and wonder for your students. Studies show that children feel more relaxed outside and are therefore more open to deep learning on all subjects. This workshop will demonstrate how to use the outdoor learning environment to provide authentic and rich learning opportunities that boost your students’ literacy skills by helping them make meaning of words and unleashing their creative minds as they explore and express what they see, hear, touch, smell, and feel. It will also demonstrate how to develop a range of numeracy skills including basic operations, estimation, magnitude, measurement, patterns, shapes, or space. You’ll leave with many activities, ideas and resources you can use right away.
