I bought the square mirror tile and the sorting tray too! . The whole project was $7. . I plan on using the tray for learning provocations. I can’t wait to set it up with shells, beads, leaves, flowers, coloured gems... the ideas are endless! . . . . . . . #handsonlearning #diyclassroomresources #diykids #diylearning #homeschoolblogger #hsbloggers #homeschoolbloggingconnection #homeschoolbloggernetwork #homeschoolmom #homeschoolmaterials #naturestudy #homeschooling #homeschoolingrocks #homeschoolingmom #teachingmykids #homeschooler #homeschoolersofinstagram #beautifullearning #thedeliberatemom

11 tags and 0 profile in descriptionCan you believe that the Noughts & Crosses element of our Team Building is the most challenging for foundation to year 2 students? Taking turns, winning and losing, working in partners are all challenging concepts for children in this age group (and for people of all ages tbh). Are these skills your students could use some help with? A hands-on exploration could be just the thing they need to grasp a better understanding. . . . . . . . #supremeincursions #handsonlearning #learningthroughplay #playbasedlearning #learnthroughplay #invitationtoplay #playmatters #letthemplay #teachersofinstagram #openendedplay #wherelearningmeetsplay

It is a fun, engaging way for young ones to learn geography. For this activity, I gave A a world map to color and then we matched each continent, discussed the animals native to that continent and our friends/relatives who live there! #indianmom #learnathome #learningthroughplay #letthemplay #preschoolplay #homeed #homeschoolactivities #homeeducation #geographyforkids #handsonlearning #childledlearning #letthembelittle #playmatters #playbasedlearning #earlylearning101 #earlychildhoodeducation #playislearning #activitiesforkids #indiankids #stemgirls #reggioinspired #montessoriathome #montessoriinspired

This will count for 3 CE credits with yoga Alliance 👍🏼 . I'm super excited to share one of my favorite topics within teaching yoga! As a yoga teacher, it can be intimidating to offer your touch to your students without truly understanding the art behind adjustments. There are many reasons why we adjust a student and so many styles of adjustments. In this workshop we are going to dig into all styles, why we adjust and practice a TON on fellow yoga teachers. .

We all had an incredible time bringing science, technology, engineering, arts, and math to all students. Farm to School was in the mix of the day with parent volunteer support for multiple grades, including 5th grade Food Labs learning about the science in making ice cream, Kinders planting a garden, and 2nd grade learning all about soils and erosion, including what soils look like across our country, what amendments gardeners and farmers need to make to grow fruits and vegetables here, and the abundance of life living in this critical habitat on our planet. A blast was had by all, and the organizers are true rock stars!! Thank you Seacoastonline.com for highlighting the day of learning.

It’s a rainy day here in NYC. Kingston and I decided to check out the Art Farm in the City to feed and pet the animals and we were amazed. Definitely going to make weekly visits there this summer. Then we hopped on the metro-north to come visit cousin Wesley and enjoy fresh air in the backyard of his new house. Lots of sensory learning and experiences today. I hope you’re enjoying this three day weekend as much as we are!

We’re in the middle of moving and so we are taking full advantage of currently living right across the street from @canadaswonderland as we’ll be living much further away by next summer! 🛣 So we’ve got our seasons passes and decided to include the all season pass to the Dino world area in support of Callum’s ever growing interest in the majestic prehistoric creatures 💚 It was hilarious to witness Callum’s reaction to the first dinosaur coming to “life” as he approached it, moving and roaring. He ran ahead of us and as soon as the dino came to life, Callum made a quick u-turn like “NOPE!”😳😳 (2nd pic in slide) These guys are much bigger than my Dino toys! He eventually warmed up to the creatures and was again off on his own, on a mission to outrun mama and dada as usual💨 He also found the inner palaeontologist in him and had a blast digging up some bones! New fave place? I think so! 🦖💚🦕💙 . . . #exploreplaylearn #sensory #earlylearning #invitationtoplay #teachablemoments #toddlerplay #sensorylearning #sensoryplay #learningthroughplay #playmatters #letthemplay #handsonlearning #creativelearning #creativeplay #earlyyears #dailyparenting #momlife #momsofinstagram #momsofig #preschoolteacher #teachermom #toddlerlife #toddlersofig #earlylearning101 #earlychildhoodeducation

We go and visit it often, talk about birds, eggs and nests. Last night my husband spotted a snapping turtle trying to get to the eggs and I went into mama bear mode. Lol the hubster scooped the turtle 🐢 in a diaper box 😂 and we put it somewhere safe until we could release it the next morning far away from the nest. I am SOO glad we did that because this afternoon 2/4 eggs hatched! Eek! They are so cute!. . #nature #naturetoddler #handsonlearning #mamabearactivities #preschool #preschoolhomeschool #homeschool #homeschoolpreschool #naturallearning #natureschool #killdeereggs #killdeer #snappingturtle #busytoddler #toddlerapproved #toddler #eggs #nest #teachablemoment

25 tags and 0 profile in descriptionSometimes no prep is needed at all! 😆Callum is becoming more and more of an independent play-er (is that even a real term in childhood? 😂) ...he’s very comfortable exploring and engaging in self-entertainment for long periods of time, as opposed to constantly looking for someone to play with or entertain him. I give him lots of space during the days to venture off and do his own thing because I do believe that boredom sparks curiosity which is beneficial to brain development. 🧠💡So while I sat back enjoying my hot coffee (haha this is a lie, I was mostly likely getting laundry done or preparing lunch), I find Callum engaging in a fine motor activity that was not prompted by me 😱 I love setting up daily invitations to play for Callum, but there are times where he impresses me with his ability to find independent engagement for long periods of time. This is one of those toys where a hammer is used to knock the pegs through the holes, but I found Callum focusing on using his fingers to pull out and then squeeze back the pegs into the holes. 👏🏼 Quite challenging as the holes are rubber lined which makes for a very tight squeeze. He remained engaged in this activity for almost an hour! 🙌🏼😍 . . . #exploreplaylearn #sensory #earlylearning #invitationtoplay #teachablemoments #toddlerplay #sensorylearning #sensoryplay #learningthroughplay #playmatters #letthemplay #handsonlearning #creativelearning #creativeplay #earlyyears #dailyparenting #momlife #momsofinstagram #momsofig #preschoolteacher #teachermom #toddlerlife #toddlersofig #earlylearning101 #earlychildhoodeducation
