Colour scavenger hunt. Using paint chips educators were searching around the school to capture photos of materials with the matching shade. Great for students to try also! 🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈 Loved this idea to engage our #yorkukaq kindergarten course. Thanks for presenting @nikibelegrinis !
Good morning ! My mama thinks it's perfectly acceptable to take a paintbrush everywhere with me !!!!! 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂💙😂😂💙 This little man visited Kleinburg P.S. on Friday so that I could share a provocation with the kindergarten children. As I observed him in the classroom, I noticed that he kept on returning to spaces that were familiar to him. He spent time at the reading corner, exploring glass beads on the light table, and of course painting !! Thanks for inviting us @h_theis and @acolajacks 💙😘 #sweetsebastiandean

DIY beach sand. 🌊 Heard about this material or language of learning from my recent workshop in Mississauga. It feels like playdough and sand but allows materials to stick together !! 💕 Speaking of Languages of learning I am excited to announce that ... ✨✨✨@ctinquiry CELEBRATES 100 LANGUAGES for the next two weeks and beyond !!!!! There will be so many ideas and inspiration shared ! ✨✨✨ We need to move children beyond the level of making symbols on to the level of inventing language and from the stance of using only the native spoken language to the use of many symbol systems: leaves, gestures, rubber stamps, clay and so on. It is the nature of the relation among the symbols that converts the medium into a message, and it is the presence of an intended message that motivates children to negotiate shared meanings and to co-construct knowledge.
