Collage: A Process of Layering
As part of our birthday tradition at St. John's, gifts are created for the children. This work supports the learning and development of empathy, perspective taking, cooperation and collaboration, accomplishing a project, and embracing process, along with the establishing a foundation of relationships upon which we will build and grow as we co-construct our learning together.
The language of collage was chosen for our birthday gifts. This was with the intention of appreciating slowing down and taking our time with our work as we value and embrace the importance of process, layer by layer.
