In our Reggio inspired class, the environment plays an intricate role. The environment is intentionally set up with engaging, flexible, rich materials to sustain meaningful interactions. It provokes exploration and experimentation, problem solving, negotiation, communication and collaboration, while promoting a balance between comfort and stimulation. My goal is to provide an environment that contains places for private reflection and encourages interaction that is transformable by children with many possibilities and opportunities for surprise, joy, and investigation. Our project-based class explores a topic of interest in-depth. The children question, explore, investigate, read, write, draw, count, graph, pattern, and experiment along their journey of discovery. We spend much of our time in our outdoor classroom. Through hands-on investigations, teacher facilitated discussions and questioning, a child's innate sense of wonder thrives.Our class is featured in an article published by First Things First. Read how we use our outdoor classroom to expand learning.
