So much fun outside this week! Spontaneous drawing of shapes at the chalkboard with peers is a great way for relationships to build between peers.
Preschoolers are doing such a great job sharing items and taking turns. What big boys and girls!
Monster tag was created this week by the children. They love to run and scream and catch each other!
Peers challenged themselves at the gazebo. At first they asked for help while jumping off the platform and then they found the courage to do it themselves. Amazing!
Pretending to be animals swimming in the ocean or froggies hopping along isa great way to build endurance!
Swinging like a monkey is always a good time!
The construction has been mesmerizing to watch lately; there have been new vehicles like giant cement cranes and lots of digger action.
The children love pretending the playhouse is a restaurant and serving peers food.
Practicing our dribbling skills has been fun! Preschoolers are also loving throwing the ball against the wall and then trying to catch it after it bounces down. 'Bounce, catch' we all chant together!
Indoors, preschoolers were all about making cookies. We are learning to roll our dough our thin before using the cookie cutters and that cookie are baked in the oven on a cookie sheet
Baby care has been very popular this week. Friends enjoy using the doctor's kit and getting their babies all comfortable and ready for bed .
Babies got some much needed bath time this week as well! Friends loved pretending to add body wash to the water and washing their babies with wash cloths.
We offered real x rays on the light table and the children loved it. Some pretended to be the doctor while others were the mommy. Others even made medicine with the playdough.
They seemed to really like having the light table and x rays in a different room and area. it changed the context of the play.
We liked using the connectors this week. Some wanted to make forts and requested lights while others made walking sticks to march around the room with.
Our creative minds continue to develop. Peers seem to be taking what they have seen modelled and incorporate it into their activities. They are using smudging techniques with the pastels, folding paper accordion style, or tracing and adding details independently.
We continue to explore and experiment with waterplay; filling, dumping, mixing colors, and role playing with small animals.
We are so curious about colors and how they change our surroundings!
Till next week!
