Freedom to concentrate…

Freedom to concentrate…

I so love this photo, taken in my Manhattan Mobile Babies class and I am so honored this photo was featured in the Spring issue of “Educaring,” the RIE Newsletter.

These two were playing off each other beautifully the entire class.  At this moment they are both very intent with pure concentration on the objects they are investigating.  In the room we could feel the strong connection between the two, and I think the picture captures some of that. Like being in the lab with two scientists quietly working away at a shared project. It’s difficult in our busy lives to luxuriate in such moments of full focus without distraction, but so important to make sure our children have the opportunity to concentrate without interruptions or outside demands.
