It is hard to believe that it has been 4 weeks since we started school! You probably have noticed less crying, happy faces, and children engaged in play. It has been wonderful to see so much growth in such a short period of time. Warm feelings and smiles can be found everywhere!
physical development is the way your child moves their arms and legs (large motor skills) and their fingers and hands (small motor skills). Social development helps your child get along with others. Emotional development lets your child understand their feelings and the feelings of others. Language and literacy development helps your child understand and communicate through listening, talking, reading, and writing. Thinking, or cognitive skills develop as children learn to think more complexly, make decisions, and solve problems.
Throughout our school year we will be assisting your child to grow physically, socially, emotionally, develop language and literacy, and thinking/cognitive skills. Through play kids find ways to interact with peers, to negotiate, to express self, to share, to be responsible, and be a friend.
We have already done lots of observation and documentation to see what our classroom’s strengths and interests are. These are some of the things we have observed so far.
SHARING COMMON SPACELISTENING , FOLLOWING DIRECTIONS, AND LEARNING LANGUAGE THROUGH COOKING.
So far we have done simple short cooking activities that don’t require a long attention span, this will lead us to little expert “Chefs” later on. 😉
