Third Teacher

Please take a look at this site, as it is very informative to the nature of the Reggio Emilia way of teaching.
You and I are teachers as well as your child's peers. The third is the environment  they learn in.
The thought put into placing materials, furniture and lighting are all teachers. When and what is put out. Enjoy this site and  perhaps keep in mind how the design of your own home effects your child.

Working with Red

YD so eagerly comes to work each time I go to their room.
They explore without hesitation. Glueing and placing pieces
of red paper where they choose. This is where it all begins. Touching
new textures that stimulate the senses. Worry free about a little
mess. This will help them continuing explorations in life. 
They are wonderful  and sweet .


I loved this smiling face while in the art studio. The children bring so much
joy to me and I hope I do to them as well. Each day brings sincere efforts
and wonderful exploration. We all learn from each other.
