Friday Findings: Finland's Education System, Play and Learning, Creating Independent Learners, Morning Time with LIttles....

Here we are again at Friday!  I've been away for the past couple of Friday Findings, but still have a few new links.

I read 11 Ways Finland's Education System Shows Us "Less is More" some weeks back and found it fascinating.  It think they're on to something.

While in Cincinnati, I had the opportunity to hear Dr. Christopher Perrin speak.  I greatly appreciate his knowledge and approach. Yesterday, I came across this video clip on Play and Learning.  It's a shortened version of one of his conference talks.

One of my favorite things is sitting next to my children with a book.  On the other hand, I do have a child that can milk it for all it's worth.  Knowing where to draw the line between dependence and independence can be a challenge, which Harvey and Laurie Bluedorn address in Sit By Me, Mom.

And, if you're a book junkie like me, you may appreciate Heidi's Reading List Challenge 2016 - March. Her list looks fabulous....and a little daunting at the same time.

Lastly, we listened to podcasts most of the way to and from Cincinnati, which I absolutely LOVE!  Digital technology is amazing!  Most recently, I listened to Morning Time with Littles, a conversation between Pam Barnhill and Celeste Cruz.  Celeste has some fabulous ideas for successfully incorporating morning time with a house full of little people.  Her perspective on expectation and creating the habit of attention are spot on.

Today, I leave you with photos of the latest farm calves for kids :)
