Monthly Musings - March 2024

March 22, 2024

In response to being asked about how to go deeper with one’s practice with children, we offer these monthly musings as invitations for you. You might take the invitation up

  • as an individual or with your team.
  • at monthly staff meetings.
  • to provoke conversations when feeling stuck.

The opportunities are endless.

We will pose these musings monthly but use them as you feel moved to. You might spend more than a month with one question. Or you might revisit a question at a later time. Each time you visit or revisit a question, new possibilities emerge.

We welcome the Alberta spring of 2024 by reflecting on the relational and reciprocal aspects of "I/we dispositions to learn"

I/we are Playing and Playful (children)

Think about children’s playing. 

What do you notice about children's playing?

What does children's play tell you about their ideas, thoughts, and questions? What ways can you nurture the children's play by extending their ideas, thoughts, and questions?

(Flight, p. 121)
