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 signed 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.
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.
Parents and children explored SCRATCH with lots of ahas, hmmms, ohs, smiles and laughter!
Now it was time for parents and children to share their creations in a gallery walk! Congratulations, questions, and next steps were shared by creators and viewers!
Okay, we’ll say it…”it was AWESOME!”
