Playground Activities

During outdoor play, the children have the opportunity to engage in different activites that are vital for their growth and development. For example, they are developing manipulative skills when digging in the sandox and painting at the easel. They are also developing gross motor skills by using arms, legs, or different body parts to engage in simple repeated actions.

Practicing for Our Dance Performance

The children are learning some dance moves for our upcoming dance performance! Teacher Linette has been working with the children, showing them the movements to a familiar song. They have been using their listening ears to make sure they hear the directions for their dance. The children are so excited and we cannot wait to show you!

Venus Flytrap

Today, Kingston brought a real Venus flytrap to show his peers. During group, the children shared their observations of the carnivorous plant. They wondered if the flytrap would bite their fingers and if it had eaten any flies. We also read about these interesting plants and learned they eat flies due to the lack of nutrients in the soil. The children also observed that the plant was dry and took turns watering it.

The children then drew their own representations of the Venus flytrap!
