5 things you approaching roughly speaking Reggio Emilia approach and why?

Reggio Emilia approach
who is he or she i don't know a reggio emilia Source(s): good work but i don't do this sorry
Froggy said it best! I love Reggio
1) Fosters creative expression
2) Learning is 'child-focused' on meaningful
3) Classrooms can be more focused on the math/sciences
4 ) Kids can be kids.
5) Teachers learn a thing or two along the mode!
My class is mixed age, 3-5 years. On a trip, I usually break down the class in two groups. The younger kids, may sketch observations. Older kids (or those w/ good communication skills) may ask questions for further study within the classroom. Reggio allows me the flexibility to meet the needs of the diverse skills levels contained by my class. Another benefit, you always seem to have that 'one child' that doesn't give the impression of being to do any 'work' in class. Reggio allows for the child to express how is learning in copious different way. One boy comes to mind. He just was everywhere (eventually diagnosed w/ autism). Yet sooner or later. He lined up Lego's on the tile floor in sequence or patterns. We be studying pattern in our environment. Most kids stuck to play dough, drawings, or block towers. We were competent to assess his abilities, from the different way he saw the world. And that was OK.
*Reggio can give somebody a lift about three years to really understand how to do in class. And the verbs is, many teachers are busy 'pleasing the parents' with nice work or fun cease of project activities. You not only need to train the child, but the parent.*
1. Beautiful and meaningful environment! Children experience a variety of textures and materials. The environment typically includes inbred light, neutral colors, and many "treasures" that intrigue immature children. It is much more calming than most preschool classrooms, which are filled with loud primary colors and so much plastic!

2. Relaxed, child-centered tread. Children are given time to focus on their work and play. They are not rushed from teacher-directed activity to activity, and their play is not viewed as trivial, cute, or meaningless. Value is placed on allowing children to explore and express planning. Project-based learning is key to this curriculum.

3. Relationships. In Reggio environments, children often work and play together. Strong relationships are formed between children and other children, and between children and trusted adults. Communication and cooperation are fostered.

4. Open-ended expression. Children's individualized art is truly valued surrounded by the Reggio classroom, and the environment is rich in materials that encourage them to express themselves through drawing, painting, writing, photographs, sculpture, and other methods.

5. Role of teacher, parents, and community. Most Reggio programs have a strong parent and community involvement facet. It can be seen as a network of adults working together to support childlike children, and the parent's role in the child's life and learning is not trivialized. In integration, teachers are typically focused on continuing in their own roles as learners, and contained by supporting one another.

On another note, the two most common short-comings that I see in some (NOT all) Reggio programs: a shortage of joy, and teachers who become too focused on/competitive about "producing" great projects to please parents and administrator, thus shifting the focus from the child-centered process to the finished product.

Reggio done right is amazing, though!
