So excited to be a part of the ILASCD (Illinois Association of Supervision, Curriculum and Development) annual PreK/K Conference in March of 2023. This is an AMAZING conference!
This year, one of the topics in which I will be speaking, is that of Loose Parts.
The key points being shared include…
Using loose parts for…
Building student’s sense of identity
Promoting collaboration and communication
Encouraging children to wonder, test, and explore their ideas
Providing provocations to guide student’s wonderings
Allowing for free, creative expression
Ideas for storage, clean up, and resources will be shared as well. More posts with specifics on each way to use loose parts will be coming soon.
