Today we introduced some new loose parts for the children to explore. We put outside some long cardboard tubes of varying diameter, plastic boards, a large wooden reel, and some small plastic reels along with the cars and plastic animals. The children were immediately in engaged in collaborating, sharing, problem solving, and using their imagination to explore what they could do with the parts.
In Pod 6 we have got some special friends who are going to be visiting students homes throughout the rest of the year. Each special friend has items unique to him or her that they will be bringing with them. They also have a journal so that families can record their special visit to be shared with the rest of the class. These friends are Kuwi Kiwi, Edward Bear, and Paddington Bear. Each Friday they will choose a student to go home with and will come back to school on Monday. We hope you enjoy having our friends to visit.
