Happy Father's Day
to all of the amazing Dads out there!
Here is a window into what we created for Father's Day:
During our Open House Event last week, both Julie and I had created a provocation for our visitors. This invitation for learning (photographed below) included the opportunity to engage with and explore acrylic paint, paired with pieces of wood or stones.
When the students arrived on Monday morning, they too were quite intrigued and quickly began exploring with the various mediums. You will notice that the plant was substituted for the fresh flowers brought from two Open House guests: Ellen Brown and Lindsay Keith (Thank you!). That's when, Julie had the most creative idea... She suggested that we use this as our Father's Day gift. Each student then painted on a piece of wood, and we added a paperclip in the centre to create a business card/important reminders/to-do list holder.
Thank you to Alexandra Vergis for volunteering at our Open House Event and encouraging educators to experience this provocation on that night. Thank you also to Ashley Hibberd and T.M.'s mom for supporting our students with their Father's Day gifts!
