Thoughts - Words - Actions
Our journey with the light continues immensely. The interests branch out to various areas with our wonderings on below questions:
Moving forward, friends have our own imagination and questions regarding the reflection of light. We experiment flashlight in the dark room as well as in the light.
To further our imagination and theories, Manpreet asks us, “Where does the light go when we put light on our hand?”.
Vivaan says, “It is blocked”.
Yoyo answers, “It is inside your hand”.
Moreover, Manpreet asks why it turns red.
Then Luna says, “Because it cannot come out”.
In addition, Vivaan goes to the dark room with Manpreet and he starts asking, “Why I cannot even see the color of my shadow with flashlight but I can see other objects?”.
During the moment of catching the light and projecting its movement onto the ceiling, Luna giggles, “My light is going to school”. She adds further when it diminishes, “Now it’s going back home”.
Through Luna’s perspective, we are able to observe how the reflection of the light on the ceiling moves in synchronization to the way she moves the reflective part of the CD with her hand.
Brooks is observed to be interested in changing the angles of the flashlight in his hand. However, he seems to be wondering on the unchanging effects on the CD itself. The projection of the rainbows on the CD seem to remain although the direction of the source of light changes.
We receive a precious gift “Thoughts Are Air” from Jacquelyne as she ends her practicum with us. During her moments with us, she experiences children’s beautiful and powerful minds in our daily learning experiences. Therefore, she chooses this specific storybook to keep us connected to who we are and all the related matters of our minds, words, and actions.
With deceptively simple verse, Thoughts Are Air brilliantly links thoughts, words, and actions to the water cycle. Just as air becomes water becomes solid matter, thoughts become words become actions. The comparison is subtle yet powerful - air condensing into matter; ideas condensing into something that matters.
We attempt to understand about the power in our words. Vivaan asks, “Why our words are powerful?’
Working on this question, we project it back on our shared growing interest on the concept of boundaries.
Unpacking the relationships between thoughts, words, and actions, we start with our small step - to think big or, in other words, to dream.
Some of our dreams can be based on our imagination and sometimes based on facts. In other words, for us to be able to dream is to be able to reaffirm the power of our beautiful minds.
This is how Elie puts her imagination at work.
Understanding the significance of the relationships between thoughts, words, and actions, we hone ourselves with movements that in line with respect and awareness. Dr. Lillard writes, “ When one moves with a purpose, there is a sense in which one’s body is aligned with one’s thought”.
