Materials can be viewed as a language for expression to enhance learning and understanding in children. This workshop covers different kinds of materials, where to find them, and how to incorporate them into your curriculum. The workshop also reflects on the qualities of materials, transforming materials, and how to create an attractive invitation to entice children to come and explore. We also talk about creating a mini-atelier within your classroom and how to support children in beginning to design with materials.
All participants are asked to bring 5 different materials (recycled or found) in individual ziplock bags. This workshop is a combination of a PowerPoint presentation and several hands-on group activities.
Suitable for all early learning professionals and parents.
