Thanks to P. S. for finding a bird's nest in our school yard. This naturally lead to a wonderful discussion and mini lesson on how to look closely and make observations using our senses. Wonders and theories also manifested from our observations. The children were then invited to sketch and paint the nest which extended their learning about looking closely and making observations.
J. K. demonstrated such patience and perseverance by creating each letter of the alphabet using Lego!
After observing how the children were using my previous sheets, I decided to change them and have each statement on a separate page. I think for my children having all three on one page was too overwhelming and they didn't always have things to say for all three. M. T. also told me that when she used the stethoscope she heard her heart not see it. So I incorporated a few senses in the one form which the children can circle or highlight for what they are observing with the correct sense. Children sure can lead you to some amazing changes and discoveries!
A few new provocations for this week focusing on letter formation and identification.
Amazing creativity displayed by the children as they used various open ended and natural materials to create faces on rocks.
Love that I was able to capture this learning experience of M and J as they worked collaboratively to create various number lines and patterns at the Math Area.
For our new children, learning to document their work is a big deal and takes a lot of stamina! This week I was happy to see attempts being made!
A wonderful moment captured between these two collaborating on their creation and now documenting their work.
A new provocation to start this week. The children seem to really enjoy it. Filled with so many learning opportunities!
