We’ve talked about provocation’s in our setting and how we use them to entice children to think deeper or work on a specific skill. Today’s provocation was pumpkin painting .
The children were never told they ” had ” to take a turn at the table but most did. I love the art pieces they were turning out. I chose to use the small brushes for this art because it promotes the grip a child uses with a pencil.
There wasn’t room at the table for Nathan so he improvised and painted a pumpkin at the easel.
Learning was taking place all over the classroom.
Elliette was making sure Ms Holly knew the Pledge of Allegiance .
Scarlett and Elliette read a book together in the calm down space .
The boys LOVE looking at magazines. They found TINY ( TEENY TINY ) little pictures in the magazine they wanted to cut out and glue on a sheet. They are going to be so ready for kindergarten and cutting and pasting all those worksheets .
All in a days work.
