Each workshop is run with a flexible routine to better meet the needs of each child and how they are feeling during the session. The basic outline for a session is as follows:
Fine motor activity on the mat as everyone arrives
Circle Time/group discussion about how we are feeling/ what we’ve been up to/ anything they would like to share
Children have the choice of an activity they would like to do. Choices are fine motor activities, puzzles, cooperative board games, arts/craft, stories, calming corner, yoga and meditation.
Group Time: children sit together on the mat to discuss each of the 5 YCDI! characters using their puppets and matching information cards. Then we play a game using the emotions flashcards; such as Go Fish, Snap, Memory, etc.
If time children can choose another activity to do; this is usually a large floor puzzle completed as a team.
Goodbye Circle Time: Review what we did for the session, discuss what we likes or didn’t like and say goodbye to everyone.
