* Recheck/refresh this schedule on Saturday morning to see what rooms your desired sessions are in. We continue to change room assignments based on the level of interest in each session.

* Use one seat and move to the middle. Every seat will be used in the auditorium and likely in many breakout sessions as well. Please allow as many to sit as possible by using one seat and moving to the middle of a row of seats so others may sit down without climbing over you.

* Be patient. No matter how hard we try, history tells us that some breakout sessions will end up being standing room only for fill up completely.  Please understand that we are trying our very best to make this a productive and enjoyable learning opportunity for you and as many of your fellow Montessorians as possible. Your patience will help the most people receive the most benefit from this conference.

One Stitch At A Time - The Importance of Sewing (ends 12:15pm)

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Sewing is an essential skill that develops eye hand coordination as well as ensuring that the hand and the brain are working together. It reinforces coordination, concentration, independence and order. The children sew from simple techniques to complex techniques where you combine stitches, buttons, and other embellishments. Sewing is purposeful and meaningful work for all ages. You use many executive functioning skills like: planning, solving problems, critical thinking, organizing, and creating. Join me for this engaging workshop to reinforce the beauty and importance of sewing in the classroom.
