Today in the toddlers we were exploring the garden investigating items that rolled down the plank.
Some items rolled a little
Some items rolled a lot
It’s good to take turns and work together and work together to problem solve. The children in the toddler room love to explore their curiosity and explore new experiences.
It takes a lot of practice but the toddlers were engaged in their experience 😁
Our children really enjoyed the story of Rapunzel and wanted to make a Rapunzel castle.
The children quickly got to work selecting their materials and paint to creating their castle.
The children decided to use the big rollers and brushes. We even explored the paint with their hands.
Once the castle walls were up it was time to furnish the inside.
They brought in logs to sit on, card for carpet and a door.
“This is the door”
”we need a carpet”
The children’s story continued to evolve all afternoon. They had great fun sharing their creativity and imagination.
“This is the bed”
“This can be the kitchen”
Along with being fun, using imagination in their play improves their creativity and promotes communication and language, develops social skills while collaborating with others, allows the children time to explore, to process and to make sense of real life situations.
We are learning some songs using Makaton.
Makaton can help people who have limited speech or whose speech is unclear and can help all children communicate.
It is used to support spoken language. The signs are used alongside speech in the same order as the spoken word.
We are singing and signing “Five little ducks “.
We are also learning to sign our names during “Hello everyone”.
“I can sign my name” “it’s fun to sign”
We are having fun learning to sign!
