Lilianna Grace you have stolen our hearts for the last six months! Happy half birthday baby girl ! #lifewithliliannagrace
Spending two days at the biggest educational conference in Toronto and presenting a hands-on experience with eight different studio spaces. Thankful to all the new people that I met and for their participation. Always love the energy at @readingfortheloveofit !!!! #rftloi #TransformEdWorkshop
Did you know that this already inspiring book has a second edition? It just came out last month and I’m offering a free online book study for those interested in joining. We are a group of 15 so far and I have space for another 8. The first chapter is available on the Redleaf website for next Monday’s chat. Also photographed here is my presentation description to the Reading for the Love of It conference that takes place in Toronto on Thursday and Friday. If you are there, I’d love to meet you! @readingfortheloveofit Details for the book study on my blog ! #CTInquiry
As I put the finishing touches on my new TransformEd Creative Studio space (promise to start showing you soon) I continue to look for inspiration on Pinterest. This photo comes from a company I love for children called community playthings. I wish I could have all their furniture and wooden products! I think it’s American so I’m not sure about shipping costs. Have to look into it and start making my wish list ! @communityplayus (on Twitter)
First time my infant discovered her reflection in a mirror. 🌈 Add a mirror to your explorations with young children and pay attention to how they react. You will be pleasantly surprised with their sincere interest and curiosity! #lifewithliliannagrace
Rise and shine ☀️- these children’s pots and pans have been on repeat for us this week. First with the shaving cream, rose petals, and even using penne pasta or Cheerios. My toddler knows what dishes are his and he is already helping to put them all away. I find this simple routine a great time for him to learn sorting (for example the plastic cutlery) by shape and size. “Me help” or “I me self” (by myself) are often what you’ll hear him say and there are no complaints from this Mama about cleaning from a young age! #besthelper #toddlerlife #learningthroughplay
Imaginary play in our pyjamas at 7 a.m. ! He wakes up and goes straight to his fire truck 🚒... Who else is up early with their kids? Long weekends don’t mean sleeping in for this Mama!!! At least he’s cute 😂 #firemansebby #toddlerlife #sweetsebastiandean
While I prepare for my presentations, this little one calculates on his cash register and my calculator. Speaking of numbers, the smartest mathematician I know (my younger brother) celebrates his birthday today ! Him and I were complete opposites in our schooling. Alex finished engineering while I completed English and Education studies. He’s very logical and I’m creative. Makes me wonder how my kids will be when they grow up !!
