Most boys need to move, make noise and conquer the world. However, our classroom environments are not usually set up to handle wiggly, noisy boys. Dr. Wrighton will discuss how early education teachers (Kindergarten included) are mostly females who have never been little boys. An innate understanding of their needs is often missing. She’ll describe how to set up your classroom environment and choose and/or create curriculum that not only approves of wiggling and noise but encourages it as a vital part of learning – at the same time encouraging and fostering the emotional, social and academic needs of the little girls in their care.
