While reflecting on this quote, think of your classroom walls. What is hanging on the walls? Is it a reflection of the children? Do the children look at, talk about, use the information that is hanging on the walls? Did the children have the opportunity to help create the pieces on the walls?
As educators, we need to reflect on how we are showcasing the process of the learning of young children, how do we provide a visual to others of the children’s thinking. I believe that if we had this goal in mind as we are hanging items on our walls and deciding how to document children's learning- not just the end product but the process as well- it would serve as an incredible focal point for student conversations as well as provide an amazing visible display of what children are learning and thinking for parents, administrators and other stakeholders- what are your thoughts?
