Warm and Cold
We had another great day in the pre-tot room! This morning our friends had a blast playing together in the playhouse. They all marched into the house, and then Miles opened the door and they marched out. They explored both the inside and outside of the house and peeked at me and their friends through the windows and through the fence. It was great to watch them play and enjoy each other's company.
After circle time we headed out to the deck where we did our sensory activity. We took two buckets and filled one up with warm water and the other one with water and a little ice. We then talked about how one was warm and the other was cold. One by one we put the children's feet in the warm water for a moment and then switched them into the cold water. Then we placed one foot in the warm water and one foot in the cold water. Miles seemed very happy to be standing in the water and he seemed to enjoy both temperatures equally. Julia decided to step back and forth between the buckets, putting one foot in each then both feet in one and then back to the other. Ronav showed a distinct preference for the warm water. When I dipped his feet in the cold water he promptly took them out and returned them to the warm bucket. This activity was a great way to get the children thinking about and using their feet and to expose them to different temperatures and the associated language.
In the afternoon Toni took over the class, as I had to leave early for a grad school obligation.
I hope everyone has a great night and a wonderful Thursday!
