Where are you go to places for wooden toys ? We love @mastermindtoys , The Toronto Waldorf School's shop filled with everything by @grimmswoodentoys and also ETSY shops !
Last weekend to get your digital downloads from my blog (link in profile) about inquiry-based learning and Reggio Emilia inspiration. The cut of date is Sunday at midnight. One is a 20 page eResource and the second is an over 120 slide eWorkshop presentation with voice over. Both give you lifetime access to learn at your own time and space!
Happy Nameday to my love @arsenios (who I very rarely post about on here since Sebby stole the show) ! It's hard to believe that in two and half years of marriage we will soon be a family of four... 💙💗💙💗 We may have taken the long road dating, but somehow managed to go highway speed ahead with all of the changes after tying the knot! Looking forward to slowing down again and enjoying the important moments in life that seem to be so fleeting ! 💋 #shareinourstory #sweetsebastiandean #fbf #ourgrowingfamily #somuchanticipation 🍼🍼📸: @janinedapontephotography

Check out our @ctinquiry page to participate in the next challenge on numbers - or to get ideas for your class / little people !! 1️⃣2️⃣3️⃣4️⃣5️⃣6️⃣7️⃣8️⃣9️⃣🔟 We were then, and still are, convinced that it is not an imposition on children or an artificial exercise to work with numbers, quantity, classification, dimensions, forms, measurement, transformation, orientation, conservation, and change, or speed and space, because these explorations belong spontaneously to the everyday experiences of living, playing, negotiating, thinking, and speaking by children. - Lella Gandini - Pg 31-32 The Hundred Languages of Children 😊 We are pleased to announce our next two week Reggio inspired focus of numbers. We look forward to being inspired by all of your number explorations. For the following two weeks share your provocations and explorations of numbers to the #ctinquiry and #cti_languageofnumbers We are so thrilled to welcome our guest judge/host and this weeks FOLLOW FRIDAY @playexplorelearn . Kimberly will select four photos from the #cti_languageofnumbers which will be posted on Friday, August 25th, 2017 just before the next challenge is shared. You'll find lots of inspiration on @playexplorelearn's feed as well. *You may also wish to tag older posts that match our focus. #ctinquiry #cti_languageofnumbers #reggioemilia #earlyyears

Collecting cherry tomatoes in Papou's (grandpa's) garden while waiting for his baby sister to arrive ! Oh how your life is going to change my little man ! 🌿🍅🌱🍅🥗 Here Sebby looks a lot like my brother did when he was younger, except with lighter eyes and hair like mine.
