Three Days to Go!

24 Jul

Welcome to Teaching Out Of The Box Summer Institute 2011!

Hunterdon Learning Center, 37 Hoffmans Crossing Road, Califon, NJ 07830, (908) 832-7200

We are so  glad you will be joining us for two action-packed days of learning fun! As we complete our final preparations, we’d like to share some information that will maximize your participation at the Summer Institute.

Registration and an early-bird activity will begin at 8:30 both mornings. Coffee, tea, lunch and snacks will be provided both days, however, in keeping with our “Up-cycled & Recycled” theme, we ask that you please bring your own mug for hot beverages and a refillable container for water so that we can reduce our usage of plastic cups.

There are a few supplies that you will need and want to bring…


  • Dressing comfortably in old clothes that you won’t mind getting paint on and/or bring a smock
  • Sharpie marker- ultra fine point black
  • A set of watercolor paints with a brush- Crayola or Prang child set are great or you may bring your favorites if you have some
  • #12 round watercolor brush (if possible)
  • Glue stick
  • Mechanical pencil
  • Printed Handout (We will notify you when the hand-outs are posted for you to print out and bring along so you can make notes)
  • Your own scissors
  • Colored Markers (water soluble and/or permanent)
  • Colored pens including white- bring your favorites!
  • Colored pencils
You may want to bring a digital camera and your laptop too!
We are excited to have Brod, Carla and Kimberly joining us and we plan to begin promptly at 9:00 am! We can’t wait to share ways for you to put creative ideas to work in your classroom.
