Okul Öncesi ve İlk Öğretim İngilizce Öğretmenleri için Kendi Hikayeni Kendin Yaz, Kendi Oyununu Kendin Yarat! Atölyesi / DIY Stories, Songs and Games Workshop

"and what is the use of a book," thought Alice, "without pictures or conversations?" - from Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll.

How often have you sat in front of the computer, searching the internet for JUST the right story for this week’s topic? Have you ever found it?

How many times have you spent hours ‘Googling’ a topic in the quest for the PERFECT song to teach your pre-school students? Were you successful?

The Internet is wonderful . . . . a world of information and resources at our fingertips . . . . IF we know exactly how and where to search . . . . but all too often we want something more specifically suited to our topic, time-frame or students than what other teachers have shared – every class, every student, is different . . . . so, why not DIY? YES – Do-it-Yourself!

DIY needn’t be difficult or overly time-consuming – all it takes is a little time, confidence and ideas to get you started. The purpose of the workshop is to try and provide 2 out of the 3 – Confidence (the realisation that you CAN) and some Ideas, just to get you started – you may be surprised at how quickly you become an expert!

COME AND JOIN US, 2,5 HOURS TODAY COULD SAVE MANY HOURS LATER! (And we promise it will be more fun than staring at a computer screen!)
