Nature Play: Building the Physical Foundations of Literacy presented by Jill Bienenstock, Bienenstock Natural Playgrounds "will consider foundational physical activities that support literacy, beyond the traditional activities, such as story telling, reading and printing activities. Children must develop their shoulders and core muscles to effectively use the muscles in the fingers and hands. As we develop, control and stability stems from our core, progresses to the elbow, then the wrist and finally the hand. Efficient control of large muscles is necessary to maintain the stability required for the fingers and hands to move and complete handwriting tasks. Participants will compare, assess and promote ways to improve literacy skills in any outdoor space. They will review how the many areas of a sensory-rich natural playground support big-body-play and reinforces developing literacy skills. Effective playgrounds should strive to create balance between sensory rich, physical, dramatic, creative, and quiet areas. Straight from the experts, participants will learn how to build an inclusive nature rich environment outdoors that enhances these opportunities. Through discussion, participants will get a chance to assess their current playground and evaluate the literacy opportunities available. The session will conclude with a brainstorming and goal-setting session for participants to bring ideas and strategies back to their playgrounds and classrooms."

Learn how to make the Living Skills come alive in Health and Physical Education! "Discover, learn and experience how critical the integration of living skills are in your H&PE classrooms. These are truly life-long growth opportunities for your students to feel good about themselves and those around them, which is what we all want as teachers. In this experiential session, participants will engage in movement activities which will uncover and nurture self-expression (personal), connectedness with others (interpersonal) and use creativity & inquiry (critical and creative thinking) while moving. Debrief and discussion around how to recreate this will be shared as well as resource suggestions and support following the session."

Crossfit - Yoga Obstacle Course Skill Specific Training presented by Asgar, a knowledgeable #pdsb educator.

"The proposed presentation will use crossfit, yoga, fine and gross motor skill development, stretching and strengthening through a simple obstacle course which will challenge students to have a complete whole body “disguised” workout. Most components in the obstacle course can be modified to varying levels and give students the choice to achieve at their comfort level or to challenge themselves. The presentation will use a few simple inexpensive materials that can be used in various ways. Vocabulary will be explored to engage students’ interest and simultaneously reinforce curriculum.

This workshop will show you that anything you can do, you can do on a scooter!
.
Scooters help level the playing field, helping maximize participation by taking away the advantages of speed, strength and height.
.
By playing conventional sports on scooters, the advantage that many athletes have is taken away, allowing more students to have opportunities to be active.
.
The games covered in this workshop will be Quidditch, Sledge Hockey, and relay games.
.
Teachers and recreational leaders- this workshop is for you!
