Georgia and Hudson are now in our classroom and we are so excited to see them grow into preschoolers. Our friends have had many opportunities to explore dramatic play and are always found in the house corner, or playing mommy and daddy, or puppies. Its really fascinating watching children transform into different characters and see what they have learned from their different backgrounds and households! We are also starting to look at ways to enhance the classroom and look how preschoolers can start to recognize literacy and how we can promote it. We will strengthen the 100 languages in the classroom and start to observe and investigate what the children really want to know!
is made of one hundred.
The child has
a hundred languages
a hundred hands
a hundred thoughts
a hundred ways of thinking
of playing, of speaking.
A hundred always a hundred…
from the poem “No way. The hundred is there.”
by Loris Malaguzzi. Translated by Lella Gandini
Loris Malaguzzi reminds us that the hundred languages are the endless number of children’s potentials, their ability to wonder and to inquire. The hundred languages remind us that there are multiple ways of seeing and multiple ways of being.
Have a wonderful weekend! Hopefully with lots of sun!
