As cute as Sebby is dressed in his little rain day attire, I'm keeping my fingers crossed we won't need them with a sunshine filled long weekend ahead !!! 📸: @luvmyraspberry

Beautiful bouquet given to me by the Kindergarten adult learners I instructed with my parting gift on our last class. I gave them all a blank canvas for their upcoming school year and reminded them of the importance to document !! If you would like to join our summer York University Kindergarten AQ the deadline is soon approaching !! Details in my last blog post. #yorkukaq 💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗 See my IG story today to find out how Baby S explored these flowers.
Flower garden themed first birthday. Created this space for the children to have a bubble party and use the loose parts (ribbons, flowers, pine cones, etc.) as pretend food while they dined ! 🌹🌼🌺💐🌷🌸🌼 Outside of my work with adult educators I have been been busy with children and family programming this year ! Still loads to blog about !!! This has ranged from creative corners at special events (birthdays, baptisms, etc.), discovery days in my studio with a couple families at a time, and longer inquiry programs that last over several weeks. It's obviously all on hold as we renovate my new studio space, and since I'm 8 months pregnant, but I'm really looking forward to resuming in 2018... If you are a parent or know a family who might be interested in the information about such programming I am creating an email list for updates. I will continue what I began and also start some Mommy groups called Musical Mondays, Father groups Brunch and Play, and Creative Camp for the March Break, private piano lessons, and so much more. Dates and ages will vary from weekdays, after school, to weekends and from infants all the way to ten year olds. Send me a direct message or email email@example.com if any of this sounds appealing to you and your little person. Would love to connect and plan some unforgettable experiences !! Also open to your suggestions of creating something that you wish existed !!!#TransformEdCreativeCorner #TransformEdDiscoverydays #EventsTransformEd
A spiral of learning is a way for us to think about our experience as one that is non-linear. I love this notion, as it reminds me of the Reggio Emilia philosophy. Check out my last blog post (link in profile) for some Reggio-inspired learning sessions with @ontarioreggio association and York University !!
This mama got her first morning off in a while - forgot what it felt like to sleep until 10:00 a.m... Didn't realize just how hard it is to be pregnant with another baby at home that you are always chasing after !! It's certainly not as rosy as all of the photographs might suggest !! 🌸🌺🌻🌷💐🌼🌹Regardless, I still wanted to share a couple from the most stunning shoot with the talented team @janinedapontephotography !! The set was out of this world and truly more enchanting than my heart could even dream up !!! Don't you think ?! Can't wait for our magical newborn session !! #shareinourstory #babyvpartdeux #august2017
Know any florists? Please tag them below! 🌸🌺🌼💐🌹🌻🌷We are looking to partner with one next week to be a guest host/judge for our Reggio-Emilia inspired challenge on the topic of flowers and how they offer beauty in children's learning contexts. Your page will be featured on my account, @ctinquiry account and @creative_explorations' account !! Also hoping that this collaboration will be a special welcome summer contest for one lucky/deserving teacher to win a lovely bouquet in celebration of completing the school year. DM me if you are interested !!!
Some of the best professional learning can be found on the ORA (Ontario Reggio Association) website. Check out their Emergent Curriculum Certificate program for this summer. There is an introductory session and one I'm instructing about the learning environment as third educator. Both are incredibly priced for 25 hours !! @ontarioreggio @ellenbrown28 #TransformEdWorkshop
