School September

 

September is a special month for me. I have worked in education all my life, and beginning of the school year has always been the reference point.

Thus the topic of this month's newsletter is school - learning from the "knit" angle.

Language School Rocks

School and languages knitted together for me in many ways. One of those ways was setting up a business. My husband and I opened Language School in Russia in 1991 and ran it for 13 years. For the last 7 years it has been run successfully by my sister. A little more math: this September LS starts its 21st school year.

Teaching-Learning: weaving it together

These two processes are knitted together. They are

woven into the fabric of our everyday lives.

Learning and Fun

Knitting is not as hard as it might seem...

... And it's not as easy as it might seem:-) ... like juggle

 

 

The clown in the picture represents craft skills.

And he is obviously having fun!

Learning Knitting Skills

Knitting was informal learning for me like many crafts we learnt in younger age. This on-off relationship then transformed into a passion.

Learning to Balance

Vocabulary:

You all know what chakra is.

But do you know that its name derives from the Sanskrit word for "wheel" ?

Chakras are like vortexes of energy which spin (like balls of yarn:-)

 

And of course you know that the art of hand-knitting has been praised for it’s therapeutic and relaxing benefits, and compared to the practices of yoga and meditation.
