FAMILY CREATIVE LEARNING Workshop 1—SEPTEMBER 23

At the Intersection of Joy & Learning!

The signs were up, the table and food were ready, and the computers were tested as the Family Creative Learning Facilitators waited anxiously for the arrival of the families who IMG_0003signed up to take part in a learning journey! At 5:30 PM the families—parents & children filled with anticipation—arrived! It didn’t take long for the energy level to go way up as we began our work together.

Eating & Meeting!

Each meeting is divided into 4 parts—Eat, Meet, Make, and Share. As food was eaten, members of each family filled out About Me and About Us papers. Some of the information about everyone was shared and will be referenced as we grow and learn together. After a roadmap of the sessions was discussed and the demo of the MIT programming language, SCRATCH, was shown, the parents and children went to separate rooms to begin the Meet and Make portions of the workshop.
