The hallway leading to our classroom has always been a place for a rotating display of children's art. Inspired by both the artistic elements of the Reggio approach and the timelines of Montessori materials, this space has been transformed into an evolving 'Timeline of Birthdays'. Since our school year begins in September marking the beginning of our year together, the timeline begins with the first birthday of the month and proceeds in order through the remaining months. The children will be able to complete a watercolor painting on the other side of the "Reserved for…" paper on their birthday. One can see how this will not only illustrate the passage of time through the celebration of each child's birthday, but it will also become a colorful, artistic display representing our unique community of children.
