This week we learned all about each other! We discussed what makes each of us unique and special, we played a “Baby Picture Guessing Game”, and we practiced saying our full names. The children also enjoyed learning several Japanese words and phrases with Ms. Mel during our afternoon group times with preschool students.

This little one is proud of his work on the snap frame! This material is part of the Practical Life area of the classroom. It aides the child in developing their senses of order, concentration, coordination, and independence.

 

Proud of his work on the Pink Tower! The child builds the tower from largest to smallest. This material is part of our Sensorial curriculum and aids in the preparation for Math.

 

Working with the Knobbed Cylinders and Red Knobless Cylinders! Both of these materials are found in the Sensorial Area. They help to develop the child’s pincer grip and are indirect preparation for Math.
