National Head Start Conference
Hi everyone, and Happy Easter! On Wednesday, April 1st, I presented at the National Head Start Conference in Washington, DC. It was so much fun, and a dream come true! The strange thing is I'm more nervous about giving Alicia her bridal shower next Saturday than I was for presenting to 70 people who I didn't know at all. The session was on one of my favorite topics (STEAM in the early childhood classroom) and it was a total blast!
I talked about making gingerbread houses for all the seasons, using Duplos in cross-curricular centers and small group projects, and a few really cool edible experiments. It went really well, and I met some lovely people who came up and talked to me afterward. They made me feel so warm and fuzzy.
I was wondering if any of you have a way to do seasonal gingerbread houses that don't include candy? It was a question that came up during the presentation.
Have a wonderful holiday!
