Enter Encounter Engage: The Reggio Inspired Network of Minnesota 9th Annual Conference

Sensory Experiences and the Development of the Whole Child

Develop Approved
Featuring Tom Bedard 

AN INQUIRY INTO HOW CHILDREN THINK WITH THEIR BODIES
Children have an indefatigable need to move their bodies.  How do we make sense of their need to move?  Is their movement simply random and spontaneous?  With the aide of documentation, we will examine and speculate on how children use their bodies as thinking tools during unscripted play as they explore homemade constructions at the sand and water table.  We will try to create a vocabulary of their actions/operations that shed new light on how those actions/operations foster development in all domains: physical, social/emotional and cognitive.  We will also try to understand the conditions, implicit and explicit, that galvanize children to trust their bodies to make sense of their world.  An overarching question will be: What are the possible implications beyond the sensory table for the children using their bodies as thinking tools?
