Providing Opportunities for Children’s Self-Expression
February 25, 2021
Optimism is essential to achievement and it is also the foundation of courage and true progress.
-Nicholas M. Butler

Now, more than ever, children need an outlet to express their thoughts and emotions about all that they are experiencing in today’s world.

George Foreman, writing in the book, Curriculum: Art, Music, Movement, Drama discusses the importance of providing children with art media as “tools to help children make their ideas visible, their thoughts, theories, and perspectives.”

And Rebecca McMahon Giles, describing her popular new book, A Young Writer’s World, explains why
“this is not a manual on teaching handwriting. It is a guide to help you nurture children’s writing as a means of communication.”

She believes that helping children learn to love writing offers them “a means of communicating that far exceeds the ability to form marks on paper. It is an expression of who we are as individuals.”
