Miss Melinda and a group of children interacted with a ‘season’ game this morning where we had to decided if an item went in the ‘spring’, ‘summer’, ‘fall’, or ‘winter’ box. When a turkey came up, one of our two year old friends said, “I go to the barn to see them!”
Several art materials were made available at the art table this morning including feathers, colored wooden sticks, cardboard tubes, and a seasonal item: wrapping paper! At first, children used the wrapping paper to create a collage but after a while, friends started to incorporate various other materials into their projects.
Maxwell and Grady used toy cars as a manipulative to solve addition and subtraction problems.
M: “Grady, here are the cars. I’m going to take one away. How many are there?”
(Grady counts using his one to one correspondence skills): “There’s seven!”
M: “Okay, now I’m going to take another one away. How many do I have left?”
(Grady counts) “Now, there’s six left!”
We took advantage of the nice morning and headed outside where we patiently waited for the bikes to be made available. It was a great activity for us to get out some energy and work on our ever growing gross motor skills.
