Part 1 of the two-part Be a Tree Webinar series with Jennifer Shryock was held on April 20, 2011. This was a fun and informative session!
Part 1 on Apr 20, 2011 covered the basics of the program:
The Tools: the tools that children have on their bodies and in their heads and how they can use them to stay safe around dogs.Here is a comment from a particpant:
The Dogs: how to read dog body language and understand common signals that dogs send to let us know whether they want to meet us or not.
Meeting a Dog: how to meet a dog safely.
The Games: how to engage the children in the games and activities that are part of the program and that help to cement their learning.
The Program - the tree pose explained, why we don't take dogs to presentations and other burning questions about the program content
I just wanted to tell you how terrific your presentation was! It was very interesting and informative and your enthusiasm for the program really came through!! You also gave some really helpful practical tips. I'm looking forward to next week's presentation. I'm so glad that you are going to focus on how to adapt the program for different age groups. It was a question I had. Thanks for giving us newcomers the benefit of your year's of experience with this terrific program. I did a presentation today after the webinar for my friend's 8 year old granddaughter (and yes, I made my friend, her husband and my husband take part as well). It was really fun and they all said they liked it and learned a lot. I'm looking forward to giving these presentations in the schools, libraries, etc. ~Maryellen Sullivan
