The children are using the light box to recognise shapes and colours and making different things using the shapes.
“This one is a red square”
“I made a car with wheels on it”
“It goes very fast”
As part of Maths Week Scotland the toddlers have been busy exploring the different shapes inside various fruit and vegetables.
The children enjoyed using magnifying glasses to see the different shapes inside.
“ I can see a flower”
The children have also been exploring the Autumn tray filled with lentils, rice leaves, pine cones and wooden loose parts.
“Red, Yellow, orange”
Today in the toddler room the children were making sticky pictures with glue and different coloured shapes. This gave them the opportunity to explore different shapes and discuss how many sides each shape has. The children were thinking about what they could use the shapes for in their pictures and of course enjoyed getting sticky fingers from the glue!
”Mine has a big funny nose!”
”Mind has small legs!”
Today the toddlers had fun investigating shapes.
They were using the coloured lollipop sticks to make squares, rectangles and triangles!
They were identifying the different colours of sticks, concentrating on making their own shapes and filling the shapes on the floor with the lollipop sticks creating patterns.
