New Week, New Discoveries Oct 25-29, 2021

The children have build things in a variety of different ways  this week. The materials available to express themselves is a very important factor to consider as an educator.

We support each child's sensory exploration by offering a variety of activities that foster our senses like: sand play, play dough and the light table. Construction role play, letters and colors and making pizzas are some of the experiences.

The children are imitating adult roles in so many different ways such as looking at real x rays, washing, dressing and putting babies to bed.

Offering real items to use like a broom and wet mop ensure the experience is authentic and it seems to increase engagement, focus and learning.

We continue to support the children's expression and fine motor development. Encouraging drawing with pencil first and then using paint, tracing letters, cutting with scissors and beading are just some of the ways  we do this.

Outdoors, we watched a tower crane be built, so incredible! Peers love to 'fix' bikes and create obstacle courses or swing.

What Time Is it Mr. Wolf is a great way for children to learn how to play group games. Restaurant role play and number hop are fun too!
