Workshop Option

Engaging Hands-On Science for Afterschool

Misty Alexander, Ginger Keeton, Dave Sirrett, Paula Benson, Dixon R-1

Based on science guru Steve Spangler’s Sick Science YouTube Channels and books, we’ll show you how to have a most exciting afterschool class filled with exploding rockets, screaming balloons, and much more for all age groups! This session is taught by four classroom teachers. We’re here to show you how easy and affordable our science program is so you can begin your own class for your afterschool program. Our class is based on current MLS science standards, including problem-solving, collaboration, and engineering aspects. This is not a promotion of Steve Spangler.


GPS: Guiding Positive Behaviors thru Program Environment & Supports

Cassie Hackett, Lee’s Summit & Erica Kreisler, Kids’ Safari

Explore why the environment is important to managing behaviors during School Age Care. “GPS” is an interaction session focusing on the “How To’s” of creating supportive environments for challenging behaviors and developing and sustaining partnerships. Participants will walk away with easy and affordable solutions that take little time to implement.


What Do You Want More Of?

Colleen Abbott, eldon

We each want positive results each day. Or do we? This session will explore how our daily life choices determine our attitudes and habits and in the long run our success or failure with our programs, our students, and our relationships.

We will explore self talk/stories we tell ourselves, habits, and gratitude for a happier state of mind.
