My work – whether it’s in the form of presentations, consulting, curriculum design, books, articles, or radio interviews – is primarily dedicated to the understanding, now confirmed through brain research, that the mind and body are connected and interdependent — that children do not exist only from the neck up!

“I shouldn’t have to defend play for children any more than I should have to defend their eating, sleeping, and breathing.”

#AskingWhatIf

“Childhood is not a dress rehearsal for adulthood, nor is it a race. It is separate, unique, and a very special phase of life.”

Rae Pica

#AskingWhatIf

“We talk so much about preparing kids for school but give very little thought to preparing schools for kids.”

Rae Pica

#AskingWhatIf

“If we accept that no two snowflakes are alike, why wouldn’t we accept that no two [children] – even of the same gender and age – are alike?”

ACTIVE LEARNING WITH RAE

Reading and writing involve more than letter recognition and decoding, word comprehension, and the fine motor skills needed to use a pencil. Reading and writing occur from top to bottom and from left to right. And letters are made up of straight and curvy lines that must be read and written in a certain direction to be understood. So spatial awareness and directionality must be a significant part of the young child’s experience…because that will translate onto the page!
