Day Program: Coming Together

October 29, 2013

Each day at Talking Stick is unique. With the focus being on child and interest led learning, each day becomes a new adventure. We, as facilitators, may set up possible activities or introduce games, but the magic is really when the young people take their ideas and lead the way. This year has brought new children and a new space which has created a new group dynamic. New games and activities have started and old games have been creatively changed or enhanced.  I have really enjoyed watching the children come together. They are forming their own Talking Stick experience. They are thinking, laughing, strategizing, creating and problem solving.
