Learning Snapshot from Nursery
Posted 08/30/2017 09:29AM
This week has been full of great adventures and learning experiences for our youngest learners. As students settle in, they are becoming more confident in class. Already children are using classroom resources such as playdough, paint, sand and other materials to enhance their learning. We are gently implementing the nursery routine and are practicing changing shoes, washing our hands, going to the playground, going to the bathroom, and cleaning up, among many other tasks.
Already, one of the favorite activities among the nursery students is the good-bye circle time stories and songs. We are constantly singing Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star, The Wheels on the Bus, Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes and Baa Baa Black Sheep. At this point, we are intentionally being very repetitive with songs and stories as we want the children to be active participants and feel confident in an environment where prediction can take place. These kinds of stories and songs are also a great way to develop children's oral language.
