Sold OutRight from the Start: Discovering the Possibilities and Power of Play and Inquiry in Kindergarten

Course Code: SI-13

Part 1 – August 10, 2021; Part 2 – August 11, 2021


In this two-part OTF Summer Institute, participants will work together to investigate strategies to support early learners as they transition back into face-to-face learning using inquiry and play from the start of the year. Participants will explore the possibilities and power of play-based learning across the four frames in a Kindergarten learning environment. We will discuss how learning through exploration, play, and inquiry can amplify student voice and choice through authentic, meaningful and responsive learning experiences. The Institute will include a balance of pedagogical considerations, practical ideas and suggestions as we explore and collaboratively share positive experiences and successful practices that will start the year off right, from the start.

Presenters: Michelle McKay & Klara Redford
