Part of the Reggio-inspired philosophy is "valuing children's artwork" and seeing the "image of the child" incorporated throughout their environment. Each self-portrait is laminated, labeled, and displayed on the back wall where they play and learn.
After going for a walk through the woods, the children are encouraged to make a self portrait with all the nature treasures that they collected. We can use a nice sturdy paper and glue it with tacky glue.Enhances creativity and nature awareness.
Luisa Simmons repurposed a wood pallet by cutting it into smaller pieces to be used as a medium for drawing. Family portraits were drawn by our 3 year-old students. Family-blocks will be used by the children in the block center.
