Celebrating Learning Stories Conference 2017

Session Three: 2.15-3.45pm


Presenter: Julie Killick, Chelsea Kindergarten

Workshop 19: A Stitch in Time

There still seems to be a little confusion and uncertainty about how individual learning stories and “planning” fit together. In this workshop I will share some stories that show individual children’s progress over time, how they inspired other children, and how this all built together to make our planning story “A stitch in time”.

We will also look at an inquiry we did into the subject of gratitude, and how these learning stories impacted on our community and deepened our relationships in unexpected ways.
