Cup
A Vibrant Vessel of Learning and Creativity

EDITED by Ann Pelo and Margie Carter Construct. Transform. Collaborate. Imagine. Who would have thought exchanges between four-year-olds and simple plastic cups would result in such intricate, creative building designs? Who would have thought that cups could be the catalyst of inquiry and theory making, naturally entangling the discrete disciplines of math, science, literacy, and digital technology? Who would have thought that cups could break down social barriers and act as agents for inclusion and relationship building? Cup is a beautiful demonstration of creative representation, and is the first of many books coming soon in the Reimagining Our Work (ROW) collection. Use the ROW collection to discover how early childhood educators in the field are reimagining their work and thinking alongside children in this innovative collection of stories. Bridgette and Angela, two masterful teacher researchers, tell the story of an unexpected co-created project of investigation. Children pursue ideas of meaning and substance with educators' companionship and mentorship. And educators strive to understand and strengthen children's thinking about their pursuits. It is the story of co-constructed learning at its best—inspiring you to look for, and engage in, transformations of your own. "The story of the children, the educators, the families, and the cups embodies the conviction that education both requires and nurtures imagination, determination, vision, humility, experimentation, relationship, and listening. Bridgette, Angela, the children, and their families demonstrate the generosity, playfulness, and intellectual vitality of a community anchored by these qualities—a community alive with small acts of magic." – Ann Pelo and Margie Carter

Children’s Imagination
Creativity Under Our Noses

Author(s): Ursula Kolbe (click on the author's name for more titles)

Is today’s pressure on parents and teachers sidelining children’s play?
Artist and educator Ursula Kolbe opens our eyes and ears to what’s happening ‘under our noses’ when children play—with anything from seedpods to felt-tip pens or even an iPad. Kolbe’s stories reveal that unstructured and unhurried play—as neuroscientists, psychologists and educators have long said—encourages children to become imaginative and inventive thinkers.

By looking at children’s responses to the unexpected in play, Children’s Imagination: Creativity Under Our Noses uncovers valuable clues to what sparks creativity in us all.

For all who live and work with children 1.5–10 years.

‘A lovely, lovely book—well and truly loveable! A cracker.’
Janet Robertson, educational consultant and teacher, Mia-Mia Child and Family Study Centre, Macquarie University, Sydney
