“See How they Play” by Resources for Infant Educarers (RIE)
This video was made from someone who is inspired by RIE (Resources for Infant Educarers). RIE was developed on the principles laid forth by the profound work of Magda Gerber. If you follow Janet Lansbury on Facebook, then you have heard of Magda Gerber’s principles.
In this short video, notice what the person narrating the video is focused on. Relationships, interactions with materials, what they know about each other. I love this part, “They begin to know each other’s intentions.”
With all children, but especially with infants and toddlers, it is easy to get lost in the caregiving aspects of the work. It’s easy to get lost in the cuteness of it.
But notice how the narrator describes the work with seriousness and gravity.
