Children learn best from the everyday experience of solving problems which are meaningful to them. If we start to frame children's challenges, conflicts or problems as an opportunity for growth we can guide them to practice and develop their problem-solving skills. As educator's, it is helpful to observe moments when children have problems and help them think about ways to solve them on their own.
This interactive workshop examines the educator’s role in developing children’s problem solving skills. We will actively explore strategies that teach children the steps to solve social problems by role playing different scenarios.
