still parenting: Make light catchers We're always looking for ways to bring nature exploration indoors during the winter months. Here's the latest--I made a natural specimen set this week for the light table. (Instructions below.) But then our basement flooded on one side and the sewer backed up on the other. Really. The school room is a war zone while it's all fixed. So instead of using these natural specimens downstairs we've kept them in a basket next to the windows upstairs and used them as light catchers. The natural winter light illuminates our nature collection sufficiently for study and examination. Here are some peacock feathers and butterfly wings. A rose bud and a cross section of honey comb. Leaves and seed pods. A larger feather and more leaves. Onion skins and dried weeds. Pine needles and more seeds. Make your own! Start by gathering natural specimens on nature walks. Clean specimens of debris and dirt. Trim and line the edges with masking tape. Arrange in a basket next to the window or near your light table. Enjoy!

Casa Maria's Creative Learning Zone "A school needs to be a place for all children, not based on the idea that they are all the same, but that they are all different." -Loris Malaguzzi (founder of the first Reggio Emilia School) Reflective light has been the subject of discovery and object of fascination for the children for quite sometime. I had prepared baskets with glass prisms, agate slices and natural shells to be used with the sand if the children chose too. Let us not forget that children are clever and capable. It is probably one of the most powerful memories that the children and I will forever treasure.
