The child experiences the world through wonderment with amazement, awe and curiosity.
It is amazement that captivates the child, awe that opens the child, and curiosity that draws the child further into an ever fascinating world.
Wonderment is the first step to learning. Wonder-filled education inspires creative thinking, engages the heart and enlivens the spirit.
If we are to teach with wonderment we need to first find it alive in ourselves. We need to connect again to the amazement, awe and curiosity that we felt as a child.
When we know how to imbue all that we teach with those marvels, then we can teach wonderment.
Young children are blessed by seeing a world filled with magic, miracles and every day wonders. Sadly this sense of wonder is all too quickly dulled by the harshness of the world around them. We as adults can give this enchantment back to our children and avoid eclipsing their experience of wonderment.
