Hot Chocolate Celebration and Presentation
This event happening because of the children. The presentation and hot chocolate celebration was planned out by the children. Part of being a Regio inspired program is following the lead of the children’s interest and supporting them. We view the children as capable and competent and value all their ideas. So much learning took place during this planning and a lot of team work and collaboration took place.
This presentation started as a music circle that our Miss Grace from our senior program started, she observed that the children were singing in the room and exploring the instruments one Pd day back in November. She asked if she could due a singing club starting the following Monday, we walked her through the process of making a sign-up sheet and from that moment this one music club blow up into Gracie’s Christmas Choir.
They planned to preform for the parents. The children planned it all they created their own invitations, that all parents received. they created the props for the presentations. It wasn’t long before Macey wanted to do a dance at the presentation and was guided by the dance girls in the senior program. It was all also their idea to serve hot chocolate and bake the cookies. All we did as Educators in supported their visions.
We had an amazing turn out, and thank everyone that was able to attend. This was a beautiful celebration that the children created from start to finish.
