What does a Smart Teachers Play More course look like?
Each course is organised into morning and afternoon sessions with plenty of time for lunch. We always start and end each day in a fun and positive way with our special Smart time sessions which include relaxation, team building and sharing good practice activities.
All the activities are fun, practical and easy to apply; no special resources are needed!
The main part of the course is organised into workshops, each focusing on an aspect of the Smart Teachers Play More approach. These workshops include a wide range of Play to learn more activities which teach academic subjects through movement and games led by Kristín Einarsdottir including: quick Pick ‘n’ Mix activities; several core games; and to how to structure complete Play To Learn More lessons.
Thank you to all the team at Smart Teachers Play More for a positive, educational and highly motivational course. I found the course to be extremely valuable as I was able to share ideas and experiences with colleagues from different countries. I learned a lot of useful information that I have now put into practice in my own academy. I highly recommend this course to all nursery and primary school teachers who want be inspired. Fantastic and lots of fun!!!
