Spring is such a lovely time of year, and the cherry blossoms have once again welcomed us back to school in such a merry way.
Spring is a time of year when everything appears to be fresh and burgeoning with both quiet and resonating joys of communication and interactions with the world. So too, with the children, they are demonstrating to us the pleasure and necessity of communication through multiple ‘languages’. In the Atelier blog, we witness how the sustained engagement of a child with a specific tool can enhance his ways of communication. In both the E1 and E2 blogs, we are fortunate to observe how the children have developed their sensitivity for collaboration and reflective thinking as ways for communication which builds on the strengths of all participants.
As an addendum, the E1 children have delighted in observing Bob the turtle wake up from his long hibernation from the winter months. As we watched and ‘listened’ to how Bob stretched himself in the sun, we can surely hear Bob saying to us: ‘Spring is here!’
