Taking Their Thinking Seriously
August 30, 2017
Talk about the joys of the unexpected, can they compare with the joys of the expected, of finding everything delightfully and completely what you knew it was going to be?
-Elizabeth Bibesco

"It's easy to dismiss children's explorations because they move quickly, make messes and put themselves in seemingly risky situations. I have developed the practice of waiting before jumping into a situation to determine what the thinking might be underneath a child's behavior." So writes Deb Curtis in her book, Really Seeing Children.

"I have come to see that with most everything children do they have something in mind; a purpose or question they are pursuing. When I take even their smallest actions seriously, I am astonished at children's deep engagement with the simple wonders around them; I notice they are studying and speculating, engrossed in the moment."

Really Seeing Children

"Really Seeing Children shifts the perspective of observing children from a dull, burdensome activity that’s done to meet assessment requirements to a delightful, invigorating, thought-provoking experience where educators can’t wait to document and share the stories of amazing children. This book expands the early education field’s view of the value of the everyday moments in children’s lives and refines adults’ abilities to see the development that occurs in children’s play, relationships, and their environment."
–Ijumaa Jordan, M.A., Early Childhood Education Consultant
