We started off the week by revisiting some welcome documentations that were done for new children who started in the program. They seemed to really like looking at pictures of themselves and describing what they were doing in the picture. I think it creates such a sense of belonging too!
Lots of interest in pastels this week. educators have been modelling different ways we can use this creative tool such as shading and blurring colors.
The children are imitating these methods and creating colorful, vibrant pictures.
There has been lots of team work demonstrated throughout the week. Whether it is building roads together, or building with Lego, such positive social interactions have been exhibited.
Waterplay was popular too! Some peers requesting color, while other's seemed more focused on the filling and dumping aspect of the play.
Four baby snails were brought in for the children to observe. We are learning that we need to be so gentle with the fragile creatures. Peers used great sentences to describe what the snails were doing. " He's climbing the wall!"
Outdoors we have seen lots of running races, tag and Ring Around the Rosie. Some great group games that support their social development.
Not to mention building obstacle and hockey!
What great letter recognition; peers identified the first letter of their name!
The parachute was a very exciting addition to the playground. It's so great to see the preschoolers challenging themselves and swinging like monkeys!
What a fantastic week of fun and discovery!
