									  The Friendship in Action Series Presents A New Program to Promote Safe Schools

                             Frog and Toad.
Frog and Toad are wonderful role models on how to be a friend, warts and all. This
thoughtful presentation brings these two amphibians to life to help young children
develop empathic and sensitive ways in which to relate to each other.

Through drama, role-playing and songs, children participate directly in this
presentation and teachers are shown ways of using drama to help children safely
explore and experience some of the challenges they face in the classroom and on
the playground.

This introductory workshop is led by Words in Motion founders, Gerry Mabin and
Kathleen Payne, Toronto-based artist/educators who are committed to finding
positive, pro-active ways to tackle the difficult issues around friendship and bullying.
Gerry is a former principal of the Institute for Child Study and The Mabin School, a
school she founded in 1980, and is recognized internationally for her work in early
childhood education. Kathleen Payne is a producer, director and musician with over
25 years experience in arts education programming.

Workshops for SK, Grade 1 and 2 begin at $300.00.
Additional programs to extend and enrich the themes presented in this workshop
are also available. For more information, contact:
