Our increasing interest toward literacy has become more apparent through our own set-up play exploration of a trail of letters or a planned learning experience of recognizing the names of the letters.
Finding the letters around us indoor and outdoor is a fun and engaging way to learn about sounds, words, and language. The language becomes alive in our pro-activeness to figure out together, put the pieces, arrange and rearrange letters around us.
Another storybook of Owl Babies by Martin Waddell is one of our many ways to make connections between our love for our Mommies and the way three owlets communicate their feelings for their Mom.
The multimodal literacies and learning are demonstrated by us in illustrating our comprehension to walk us through the concept itself.
Sometimes we pose questions to counter the ordinary to dig deeper to other possibilities. For example for below question we try to ask ourselves, "Do we think Mommy can have choices or options?".
Our story has taken to another level when we incorporate drama as one of our learning experiences. As we imagine, play, make and share our stories, we encourage inquiry-based learning to develop literacy, and integrates:
Some questions we would like to work toward this dramatization are as follows:
However, to practice communication the above we understand that our learning takes steps, spontaneous and planned. It requires us to be effortful and determined.
However, digging deeper involves us to understand how our whole body system works. Sometimes we learn through moving our bodies in a controlled way and other times we let our bodies take some risk.
Taking risk to overcome obstacles can become a higher possibility when we know there is a lovely friend stands by us to work together.
Through working time together we encounter many other interesting learning arrive. We make sense with the changes around us by noticing closer as one of the possible ways for us in building relationships with the arrival of insects.
The association starts to form in our knowledge understanding the temperature is rising and warm for insects to enjoy spring. And our exploration of insects enables us to learn more about kindness and empathy.
The projection of insects resources promotes our awareness of our learning to know more about insects and the way their bodies are engineered, habitat (how they live and where they live), and counting (how many legs do insects have?). And of course, the connection with other natural living element as blooming flowers are becoming part of our daily interactions by making learning visible.
