Summer Fun in the Sun is off to a great start on the Older Pod Patio! At the water table, we’re working on fine motor—pouring, twisting on and off bottle caps and other practical skills. We’re also mixing primary colors to create secondary colors. This fun, hands on experience is the best way to build knowledge of color concepts.
We have also been Walking the Plank to practice balance and coordination. This on theme, gross motor activity has all our friends trying to keep their little toes safe from the sharks below. Our bodies and imaginations are working!
Painting, water beads, peg boards, dramatic play grotto, and so much more have all our friends exploring and growing together and it’s only week 2!
Checkout a few of our Room 3 friends taking a break from cooking in our dramatic play grotto to have a jam session on our pots and pans! This is a great demonstration of creative play— these friends found an alternative purpose for our materials and seized the opportunity to explore sound. They’re sharing space and materials effectively and developing an understanding of rhythm and music!
