Mixed age preschool groups in the studio


Sometimes I can get in a groove with a teacher where I can really use the studio to take an investigation from their classroom further. This is my favorite thing to do because it takes true collaboration between me, the children and the teachers. It makes the studio and the classroom one.

At other times the studio can turn into a place of endless messing about. Don't get me wrong, messing about is important! But after a while, it tends to become less about new understandings, and more about sparkles or tape. So sometimes, the studio has it's own projects...
