    Documentation Lab - North Metro

    First Sunday of Each Month | October-May

    Documentation Labs are an on-going way for teachers to share traces of children's work with each other, get and give feedback about documentation and generate ideas for next steps in learning based on what children have been doing. The Documentation Labs are co-facilitated, collaborative working groups where participants can bring work-in-progress, critically analyze it and learn from each other, at whatever stages they are in their practice.

    Block Play and The Role Of Symbolic Representation In Thinking and Learning

    It's no secret that blocks prove to be one of the most versatile and important materials for young children. In this session, we will take a deeper look at the symbolic representation skills supported through block play as well as how blocks support development in all domains. We will also explore how children use these materials to show us what they know as they make sense of the world around them.

    Current Inspiration from Reggio Emilia

    At an advanced study tour to Reggio Emilia last spring, participants were invited to engage in one of various “ateliers” – of clay, of photography, of light or paper. We will reflect on and analyze an experience in the “Atelier of Paper” as a way to think about how we introduce materials.
     We will focus on how the encounter was organized and reflected upon. We’ll highlight how we introduce, select and organize materials, create invitations for their use and how documentation supports this work.

    Collage and Printmaking With Young Children

    This hands-on workshop will explore printmaking and collage experiences that you can offer to support children's self-expression and creativity.
