Weekend Links 

Treasure Maps 2012 ~ Big Kids Magazine, Kim and I had a meeting in a coffee shop this weekend that featured an artist who worked with maps which reminded of me of this project. I love maps, I find it is one of those universally appealing subjects. I set out maps and there is always a reaction. This is a really cool project please check it out.

Do You Care? ~ Brick by Brick, fabulous post about caring and the importance of relationships.

Just Part of Life ~ Sunflower Creative Arts, a great post about a child exploring death and a parent’s responsive ways.

1000 x5 Literacy Project ~ PLAY Victoria, highlighting a great project by Penninsula Connections.

Its family Literacy week! Read books, play with books, talk about books and make sure  books are available in your home or centre.

Here are a few of our favourite books right now:

Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge ~ Mem Fox, this is a touching story that always almost brings a tear to my eye and provokes some wonderful discussion with the children.

Frog Girl~ Paul Owen Lewis

We are all explorersLearning and Teaching With Reggio Principles in Urban Settings~ Sandra J. Scheinfeld, I bought this book in the summer to read, I finally picked it up last night. Thats what happens though when you buy ten books to read in the summer!

Have a great weekend everyone!
