Topic Planning - before launching into a topic we like to sit around our floor book and find out what the kids know about the topic and other ideas they have and things they might like to do in class. We are still at the ealry stages of tis as they are only 3 years, but its amazing how much we can take from the kids. On the other page we document what we have done, the kids stick in the pictures and we talk about what they did, I scribe for them.
This Reggio-inspired style of documentation serves as a means of communication. For children, it shows that their work is valued and it allows them to revisit and reconsider the learning experience over time; for parents, the documentation panels involve them in the daily learning experiences of their children; and for teachers, it serves as a tool for assessment, the exchange of ideas, and curriculum development ≈≈
