Over the last few days, some children have been coming back time and time again to the kitchen area in Free Inquiry Time. They are keen to have an adult engage in their play scenarios. Today, Leander joined the children in the kitchen and brought a new play scenario with him. I recorded as much as I could of the enfolding story, both in words and photographs. Afterwards I reviewed the photographs with Leander and we talked about the story. Some of the Kindergarten children have shown a deep interest in making movies recently. I suggested to Leander that we make a movie out of his story.
All the children were delighted with the result, and were excited to think that their stories could become movies. Perhaps this will inspire some of the children to explore other movie making possibilities.
