Where: McElroy House: Organization for Cultural Resources 420 S. 2nd Street Dardanelle, AR 72834
When: Saturday May 20th 11:00 a.m. -1:00 p.m.
It’s almost summer break! Come join us for an interactive workshop on Montessori and Reggio education methods and ways to incorporate them into your home or classroom.
Razan Abdin, a Montessori educator from North Little Rock, will be leading the workshop on the basics of these child-friendly learning methods, and will be helping us design our children’s playroom to be interactive, nature-focused, and full of learning opportunities for kids in the community.
You may be familiar with these methods or you may have never even heard of them. Either way, you’re welcome!!!! Let’s learn together!
During this time period we will also have an activity for kids! Lauren Palmer will be helping children make pressed flowers from our garden.
I learned how to press flowers at a young age using flowers from my grandma’s garden. This Saturday I’ll be showing you how to press flowers and we will be making bookmarks, cards, and wall decorations! I will provide the supplies, but you can also bring your own if you’d like.
This is open to everyone, and is part of our yearly series focusing on the concept of HOME and funded by Alternate ROOTS.
