MKA at the State Fair – Aug 26th 2018
Come see MKA at the Education Building on August 26, 2018 at the great Minnesota get together – the State Fair! Stop in, say hello and support developmentally appropriate Kindergarten and Kindergarten teachers!
MKA at EM Minnesota – Thursday, October 18, 2018
Find us in Room 2 from 11:30 to 12:30. MKA is sponsoring Holly Weinkopf from Minnesota’s own Red Balloon Bookstore to explore books that will help children address issues. The session is called “Windows and Mirrors: The Power of Connecting Kids with Diverse Books.” Through books, kids can walk through worlds that reflect their own experiences and validate and celebrate their reality. They can also walk through worlds where the experiences are very different. Come learn about new titles that can be both mirrors and windows for the kids in your classrooms. Register on the Education Minnesota website for this free event, www.educationminnesota.org
