Surprised and enthusiastic

When the adult can no longer be surprised and enthusiastic about what children do, then the role of the teacher is over for that person.

The problem, then, is to become aware of what is happening right under our eyes. — Loris Malaguzzi

I've been pouring over your site, reading all the posts that have accumulated in my overextended Google reader. I've been dissatisfied with the arrangement of our little house, which puts the playroom in the basement with the TV, and away from the activities of the rest of the house. You've inspired me to try to find a way to clear some space for creativity and exploration. I'm pretty sure that's going to include the disposal of some furniture, but I'm ok with that.

Hey, Lori..........Thanks so much for linking to my reggio lesson. I've had a couple of your readers leave comments on my blog. And I did see that Craft Crow linked to it through you as well. I was very excited. Again, thank you for all the help and direction. jan

Oh my, you have been busy and I have missed it! I haven't been here in a long time, but I love the new site. I look forward to coming back again when I am a little less tired and a little more ready to soak in some goodness!
