Puzzles. They consumed our morning. One would think puzzles are a simple activity with not much education value..which couldn’t be further from the truth!
While working on puzzles, children are using their hand-eye coordination as well as their fine motor skills. All puzzles require some amount of problem solving: this puzzle piece doesn’t fit here so where does it go?
This morning, children completed puzzles by themselves or by working with a friend, engaging their cooperation and team work skills!
The sun was calling our names this morning! The bike circle was full of different bikes for the first thirty minutes we were outside. It was GREAT to get our bodies moving.
A group of children noticed that the tree in the backyard is almost bare! This started a group effort of collecting all of the leaves and forming a pile for friends to jump on. We did a great job at taking turns and moving our bodies in a positive way.
While the leaf group was working together, Maddie was making ‘red’ and ‘green’ sandwiches for them! She used the bark for the bread: it was sure tasty!
Hope everyone has a relaxing rest of their day!
