We had our first Montessori childminding network meeting for 2018 last saturday at a Montessori childminders setting in Harwich. What a great opportunity to network with other Montessori teachers and share experiences, materials and improve on our own CPD knowledge.
At each meeting which we hold three to four times a year, we have a variety of new workshop covering what ever interests the group may have. This workshop focused on using Clay and natural materials and we all had a great sensory experience using the clay to make different objects and forms. We will all take something back from this clay workshop experience that the children will really enjoy.
l have already ordered some supplies on line of clay and various natural resources to use with it at my own setting in the coming weeks, as l am sure the children will absolutely love the sensory experience of this activity.
Here are some pictures of the workshop.
