"I am just a child who has never grown up. I still keep asking these 'how' and 'why' questions. Occasionally, I find an answer." - Stephen Hawking

Let’s take a moment to pause and reflect on the questions being asked by our youngest citizens.
Becca, a current Teacher Education Program graduate student teaching in an infant room this year shared this experience with the youngest child in our school: “She spent time watching the rainbow prisms that appeared all over the room when the light hit our rainbow maker just right. She tracked the colors with her eyes. While I laid next to her, we shared a sweet moment; she reached down and put her hand on mine. When I looked at her, I noticed she was gazing down at our hands. “There was a rainbow on my hand and it seemed to me that was she was trying to grab it. Was she investigating where the light was coming from? Could this be an example of her developing awareness of cause and effect?” #myboulderjourney #infant #earlychildhoodeducation #earlychildhood #earlylearning #youngscientists

Dear Families, Friends, and Colleagues,
It is with great sadness that we inform you that our Executive Director, Ellen Hall, passed away earlier today. Ellen founded Boulder Journey School, formerly known as Make A Mess and Make Believe, in 1984 and remained a constant presence at the school throughout her life. Ellen will be remembered for her passion, determination, and love for children and families, including her own. Her spirit lives on through our beautiful school that she first envisioned many years ago.
We are planning to celebrate Ellen’s extraordinary life in a public forum and will send details soon. In the meantime, please email memories and condolences to office@boulderjourneyschool.com.
In Ellen’s own words, taken from the July/August 2009 issue of Exchange Magazine, “The joy and excitement of learning together is woven into the culture of Boulder Journey School and shared by all. The sounds of children experiencing, investigating, and communicating their learning with other children and adults are audible in the classrooms, hallways, theater, studio, reflection room, and outdoor spaces. Also audible are the sounds of adults thinking and learning — about children and about their own relationships with the world.” We will honor her memory by committing ourselves to continuing this work that brought her so much joy.
Alison Maher and Christi Ogrodnick, on behalf of the entire Boulder Journey School community

"Our earthly journey is a journey made together with the environment, with nature, with the cosmos...." - Loris Malaguzzi, 'Loris Malaguzzi and the Schools of Reggio Emilia

As part of their ongoing research around the role of eco-empathy in the early childhood classroom, the 2, 3, and 4 year-old children of Rooms 7 and 15 traveled to Eco-Cycle to tour the recycling facilities.
When preparing for the adventure, the children responded to videos of the facility:

Sven: Garbage Trucks!
Soren: And a gajillion garbage!
Sven: There's a billion garbage! And conveyor belts! And a forklift!

How do you offer experiences to foster eco-empathy in your contexts?

"Technology can give us the opportunity to enhance face-to-face interactions, not replace them." - George Couros, Principal of Change @gcouros
The children in Room 12 have been messing about with digital landscapes to enhance their investigations. What new possibilities are offered through the incorporation of a webcam in a drawing space?

What technologies do you mess about with?

"The opportunity to create a small world between two pieces of cardboard, where time exists yet stands still, where people talk and I tell them what to say, is exciting and rewarding." - Chris Van Allsburg

The 4- and 5-year-old children of Room 11 entered the outdoor classroom this morning to discover a landscape of cardboard boxes asking for interaction.
What materials do you love to offer to extend play in your outdoor classrooms?

“Puppets have a special power in relating to very young people. They can be transformative tools for communication because it puts a layer between us.” - @jessmckaypuppets

Boulder Journey School Educators created puppets to gain new understandings of the artform and its applicability to current classroom research.

Today’s inservice is brought to you by the letter p for puppet.
We are joined by puppeteer @jessmckaypuppets to think about how puppets can act as mediators in classroom experiences.
