On Friday of last week I attended a Professional Development Day where one of our foci was the Image of the Child. We looked at pictures of children with our peers in the collaborative of teachers attending this PD. The purpose of this exercise was to help us examine our own image of the child. It is my opinion that this picture shows a child who competent and strong. She has made a choice to secure the pages of her writing into a book using one of the staplers in our classroom.
