The behaviors and beliefs taught and demonstrated during our early childhood, are stored as “somatic markers”. See the full movie at http://vod.thetruthmovie.tv/
A learning style is not a learning disability. It is simply a difference in the way a person learns information. There are many theories about learning styles, but the 3 most-accepted learning styles are: - Visual-spatial learner - Auditory-linguistic learner - Kinesthetic-tactile learner -- www.easyreadsystem.com

I LOVE this book! Designs for Living and Learning: Transforming Early Childhood Environments
Another Reggio book worth looking at
We spent the last two weeks of August setting up our learning environment to reflect our personal inspirations from the principles of Reggio Emilia. We wanted to create an environment that was aesthetically pleasing, organized, clutter-free, calm, transparent, comfortable, inviting and engaging. While transforming our classroom environment we reflected on a powerful quote from the book Designs for Living and Learning: Transforming Early Childhood Environments. This quote has had a big impact on us. "Children are miracles. Believing that every child is a miracle can transform the way we design for children's care. When we invite a miracle into our lives, we prepare ourselves and the environment around us. We may set out flowers or special offerings. We may cleanse ourselves, the space, or our thoughts of everything but the love inside us. We make it our job to create, with reverence and gratitude, a space that is worthy of a miracle! Action follows thoughts. We can choose to change. We can choose to design spaces for miracles, not minimums." - Anita Rui Olds, 1999 Throughout the year we will continue to reflect on our classroom environment and make any necessary changes.

Such creative room ideas.
As soon as I saw this book, I had to have it. I'm always on the hunt for inspiring kids rooms that are as much about style as substance. You could describe US author Susanna Salk in the same way. She helped launch Elle Decor and became a contributing editor. She later joined House & Garden as a special projects editor. Now she regularly contributes to NBC's Today Show, is a contributing editor for 1stdibs.com, and writes books, including A privileged life: celebrating WASP style and Weekend retreats. Most recently Room for children: stylish spaces for sleep and play was published by Rizzoli. Which five words best describe you? Energised, focused, compassionate, sensitive, aware. How did you get your career start and what path have you taken since? I started at Conde Nast International with all the international shelter magazines like Vogue Decoration and British House & Garden. From there, Elle Decor, then House & Garden. When HG folded, I vowed to not ever associate myself with a magazine again and instead explore opportunities online (I am a 1st dibs contributing editor), television (I contribute on design for NBC's Today show), and books (my third book: Room for Children just debuted this June). I love how today many mediums and worlds can all cross-pollinate one another! What’s the best lesson you’ve learnt along the way? Don't put off anything you could do right now and if you have a gut feeling about something, stand behind it. Inevitably it will seem like such an obvious good thing in hind sight. What’s your proudest career achievement? Being able to achieve creative things while still working from home so I can see my family as much as possible. What’s been your best decision? Moving to the area where we live: its not too rural nor too urban. We're close enough so that I can dash into NYC for meetings but we live on a lake surrounded by gorgeous land. (With a great sushi restaurant 10 minutes away!) Who inspires you? My 2 boys. Nature, blogs, anything funny or poignant. The first family. People who are truthful and committed. What are you passionate about? Family and friends, always. Which person, living or dead, would you most like to meet? Leonardo da Vinci. What dream do you still want to fulfil? Traveling as much as possible with my family. What are you reading? Jonathan Franzen's Freedom of course images courtesy of susanna salk

We place enormous value on the role of the environment as a motivating and animating force in creating spaces for relations, options, and emotional and cognitive situations that produce a sense of well-being and security. Loris Malaguzzi, Reggio Emilia Italy.Do you like sticky-beaking at other preschool learning spaces as much as I do? I've been peeking into some Reggio-Emilia inspired preschools and I have some images of beautiful learning spaces to share with you. I admire the way Reggio Emilia approach pays great attention to the look and feel of the classroom. It is easy to see why the environment is considered the "third teacher" from the moment you walk into a Reggio- inspired preschool. Attention to creating a beautiful environment begins at the entrance. Take a look at the children's artwork adorns the entrance to the The Overfield Early Childhood Program : Who wouldn't want to go inside? Once inside you are likely to find photographs of each child and children's work which say, right from the entry, "this is your space, you belong here": TriBeCa Community School has a "living-room" style reading area as close as possible to the entrance of each the classroom to give the message of "welcome home. relax" The preschools are generally filled with indoor plants and vines, and awash with natural light. I'm a little bit in love with the speaking tubes in this photo. They may make an appearance at preschool soon! This one reminds me a bit of the type of preschool a stepford wife would send her child too - but hey, that's just me! You do get what I mean about a feeling of light and space, and careful arrangement of elements though: Teachers carefully organize space for small and large group projects and small intimate spaces for one, two or three children. This is my favorite - I love the floor to ceiling internal windows: Oooh, look: a zen table! Lakota Local School District Preschools via Community Playthings Here's a nifty idea: mirrored backing on shelves to help create a feeling of light: Image via Camp Creek Blog Documentation of children's work and collections that children have made are displayed both at the children's and adult eye level. I'm loving this idea for storing / displaying children's journals: I love finding inspiration for display in my own preschool: Image via The Day Nursery Indianapolis Primary Village South via Community Playthings I'm never sure how to display children's bits and pieces of woodwork, but here they are displayed to great effect: Later in the week I'll post some inspiring images of ateliers and outdoor environments in Reggio inspired preschools.
