This morning the air quality was much better than last week. The children were able to enjoy some outside time. They enoyed riding the bikes, digging holes in the sandbox, stringing beads and going on a bug hunt! A few of the children were so excited about the slugs they caught. Outside time offers children the oppotunity to develop gross motor skills and social skills.

The children have enjoyed scooping and dumping the seeds available in the sensory bin. The children have been working collaboratively, taking turns filling up each others containers. Being within close proximity has also served the children in communicating their need for extra space and materials that another children may be using.

Today was the first time the children were offered Lincoln Logs at school and they took full advantage of it! They were busy building, measuring, sharing and creating different ways to use the logs! Amir went straight to work and created a house with a roof. Kingston decided to use the logs to write Teacher Andrea's name then created a camp fire! Other children soon joined in and shared their ideas with their classmates!
