Friday, at the art table, I placed a book called Ship Shapes and materials to create.
The project not only provided a chance to talk about shapes we see when we look at boats but to practice cutting skills.
It also gave me an opportunity to observe how the children were holding markers, crayons, etc.
So I can plan future activities to strengthen their hand muscles.
The children’s ages range from birth to 5 years of age
so I provide many opportunities to challenge the skill levels that each are at throughout the entire room.
The fun part, for me, is to find activities that they enjoy doing
and don’t realize that they are learning a specific skill.
