Small groups is a time when the teachers are able to focus on an activity with a smaller amount of children to be able to assess their development. They usually run for about 5-10 minutes.
Here are some of the skills we focused on in September.
Writing: Drawing lines in salt trays. we drew vertical, horizontal, and squiggly lines.
Science: Observing a reaction. Baking soda and vinegar. This one was a “blast” and their favorite one.
Math: Puzzles. The children put together 4-5 piece puzzles together.
Letter concept: Looking for Letter A’s, both big “A” and little “a”, hidden in the block area.
