Elemental Illuminations

with Drue Bullington and Crystal Pridmore

- Hone what matters most to you and your students

- Experience lessons that focus on human connection

- Embrace an approach to lesson planning that includes how to care for yourself while teaching others.

Explore phases of the moon through elemental music and movement. Be curious about how the phases of the moon affect you, your students, and your classroom. Wonder about the world through the characters of “The Boy, the Mole, the Fox, and the Horse,” by Charlie Mackesy.

The moon, ever-present but always shifting, can remind and inspire you to bring positive changes to different areas of your life-- professional, personal, interpersonal, and spiritual.

Participants will receive detailed notes that outline several music and movement lessons along with Google slides with engaging visuals that will translate directly to use with students.

You will be given access the workshop recording and downloadable materials from the presentation.

A certificate of completion can be provided to participants who request one for professional development hours.
