Wednesday’s are always fun for Room 1 because we get to enjoy the “big field” at the elementary school.
We exercise, improve coordination, engage in cooperative play, and most importantly… WE BUILD FRIENDSHIPS!
We know that active play is an important part of a child’s development. Our Room 1 friends stay active in our outdoor classroom by running, leaping, climbing, jumping, and spinning! Gross motor skills are put to the test as the children leap onto a colored mat, but not before making a prediction. They shout with determination, “I’m gunna’ get red!” Then, they leap with all their might (sometimes falling short of their expectation but committed to trying again). We are building strong muscles, improving coordination, fostering cooperation, encouraging self-esteem, and learning colors…all while having a blast!
