This week we had the sorting animals out again. I enjoyed watching their play and discovering more about them.
They can work together for a goal - I need to plan activities that provide cooperative work.
|"Look, we sorted them!"|
They respond well to suggestion - I need to make sure I don't impose my own ideas too quickly.
|"You could sort them a different way."|
"I know, put all the sheep here."
They are imaginative - I can ask questions and encourage them to tell me stories.
|"The animals are going into space...in a spaceship."|
I'm still getting a handle on these kids. But I have observed that most like to play with other kids - and like to imagine and create different scenarios. This could be a really fun class.
