Carmelina attended an encouraging and inspiring talk by Dr Steven Hughes at Beehive Montessori on the night of Monday 7 September and kindly provided us with a summary of his talk in our newsletter. The slide shows from his talk can be viewed at the website http://www.goodatdoingthings.com/ , though it is somewhat difficult to imagine what some of the slides represent without the explanations! Apparently you can also view a podcast of the entire talk from the website - has anyone had success with viewing this?
Inspired by the classroom at Beehive, on Friday Carmelina presented an art activity of finger painting flowers and introduced parts of the seed.
Saturday was more busy than usual, with the participants of the library workshops attending and a few members doing a make-up session.
