If they REALLY want it......all about PIZZA

Its been a while we haven't shared about what we are doing....much to share and here it goes about a PIZZA!

The essence of Children Here and Now is the NATURAL allow the Children to take charge of their own Learning Rhythem, "what" and in "which pace" they like to explore the world , is entirly in their respondsability! here comes the PIZZA.....

You ask me now: What does this has to do with a PIZZA?

Well, the Pizza basically showed me their NATURAL ability to learn and SURVIVE!

The kids surprised me with their ability to be 100% present and DOING ALL what was required, to have an eatable PIZZA at the end, on their was their choice...they REALLY wanted to eat PIZZA.....and they made IT !!!

.....and as you can imagine.... it was the "BEST" PIZZA they ever ate in their LIFES ;)

They will never forget that day they made the first Pizza on their OWN!

"Learning by doing" integrates mind, body and SOUL - the experience is HOLISTIC touching every aspect of our being.......and this only while making Pizza :)

I mean how many Italiens in the world are surviving while making PIZZA!?

May every PIZZA be made with as much PRESENTS and LOVE as our PIZZA!
The kids have written down the reciept...simply ask us if you want to make THE experience!

PS: try to replace the word PIZZA with things you like to experience
for the CHILDREN of this planet
for the HERE and NOW
keep it SIMPLE

Lisa and Nadine Diary Tuesday, 02.02.2010
We began the day in a circle. First, we started with singing some songs and playing rhythmic instruments while singing. Secondly, everybody should choose a colored shawl of the rainbow and wear the color. Then we sang a song about the colors and the children started to dance. The next thing we tried to do, was making a group picture. This was actually very difficult because the children should sit in the order of the rainbow and not next to the children they liked. Consequently, some children were crying and running away.Thirdly, Andrea took Kalen and Tanay home in order to make music with them. The other children had a snack break. After the snack we went on with free play. Later, Andrea made music with the children who are between 5 and 6 years old. The younger children were painting and the older ones made a Mayan Calendar and learnt new things about it. In the end Andrea made also separate music with the little ones. All the other children spent the time till lunch with making the Mayan Calendar.After Lunch we had a lot of free play. At 3 pm a Kung Fu teacher came for the first time in order to teach the children Kung Fu and showing them how to juggle. The older ones really enjoyed this time.

Lisa and Nadine Diary Thursday, 04.02.2010
Today we were in the ‘lunar earth’. The color of the day was orange and we started in a circle. We sang some songs till Alison arrived in order to make yoga with the children. In this time the little children started to paint their Mayan-Man. After yoga and painting we had a snack break. As everybody had enough some went into the garden in order to harvest the Ladyfingers for lunch. After that the children gave each other and us massages. The boys liked it very much because they got a kiss from Issa after the massage. So many of them had around ten massages because of the kiss in the end. After ‘working’ so hard we had lunch with our own Ladyfingers. Unfortunately they were not so got because they were really hard. After the lunch Lisa played some games with Tanay and the other children joined us. In this time Nadine learnt the alphabet with Vincent and they started with counting. There was also a lot of free play in this time. At 3 pm Matthias came to play football with the boys.

Lisa and Nadine Diary Friday, 05.02.2010
As nearly every day we started in a circle. We sang our names because Camilla was there today and she did not know all the names. Then we played the game ‘fruit salad’ in the circle. After this the children were so hungry that we had the snack break. The next thing the children did was free play. Camilla, Issa, and Lisa started to ‘basteln’ and later other children joined us. Angelica also tried to teach the children a new game, the ‘snake game’. Actually this was an easy game but the children did not stay and listened very well so it was a bit difficult to play. Later Nadine read some stories and Lisa went on with making nice things with the other children.

I stepped up and put my point clear
The Circle started and we created the goodbye song for Nadine and Lisa which came out very beautiful.

The Big ones later wrote the text of the song on Paper, in cursive to give as a present to Nadine and Lisa.
