Sorry I haven’t posted in a few days but I have been busy, not just with work, but with co-planning and facilitating a conference for local educators in the early years.
It was a wonderful experience bringing many early childhood educators, and a few primary teachers, together for several hours to inspire and be inspired.
Local Early Childhood Educators presented the topics Explore your Backyard, Social Media, Art, and Oral Storytelling. We are privilege to have such talented peers in our community.
Another ECEr provide an opportunity to chat about ‘loose parts on the playground’. He brought a large variety of props he built and uses to encourage outdoor exploration.
A variety of displays, including documentations, invitations and posters, were available around the school to provoke conversations.
Bringing this conference together, with my friend Jackie, was an honour to give back to our learning community. To have the opportunity to bring us together in a field that is often difficult to do filled me with very positive energy.
