This week we have grass in the sensory table ready to be cut.
Scissors were provided and we sat back and watched how they went at it.
|The smell of the cut grass was so fresh and spring like.|
Some children already knew how to hold the scissors in one hand
but others not yet.
|It was fun to brush our hands across the top of the thick wheat grass.|
It was a good opportunity to talk about the scissors opening and closing
and getting the feel of that movement.
With a bit of instruction on where to put your fingers some were able to move
from two hand use to one handed cutting.
I worried about what we would do when the grass was cut.
This little guy figured that out for me.
He was playing with a tray of toy caterpillars and green bits.
He put the caterpillars into the grass.
So we built a garden.
I can't wait to see what will be added tomorrow.
I wonder if some of the grass will grow back.
