Super Saturday with Shaun Brown - October 2011
Shawn Brown presented the Super Fun Show workshop held at Dauphin Way Baptist Church to 216 participants from seven counties – Baldwin, Clarke, Conecuh, Escambia, Monroe, Washington and Mobile Counties. Participants gained an understanding of how movement activities can support social/emotional development and planned classroom activities designed to facilitate language skills using puppets. Participants included center directors, Mobile County head start program teachers, child care classroom teachers, family child care home providers, and support staff. GRCMA provided door prizes such as educational CD’s to participants to help boost what they had learned as well as to help enhance children’s learning and development in the classrooms. This high energy presentation was a celebrated favorite.
