The observation of the one little girl filling her bottle slowly led them to take a long box, cut holes in the top, and attached a variety of tubes for the children to use with the corn with. They gave them tweezers and spoons. While some of the children were actively using the tweezers and spoons many began to pretend to stir their corn so on Wednesday they added a big mixing pot and two mixing spoons to encourage their play. They were given a few of the water bottles they had filled throughout the week to explore paint with. They rolled and stamped a variety of colors to make an original piece of art. While that was happening Ms. Loretta noticed that one of the little boys was playing one of the large empty containers with a lid on it. He filled the container with corn and it became an instant drum! On Thursday we used the empty containers to fill to make instruments and have a “parade” with music and singing. They also noticed that another little girl loved “sliding” down into the corn so we also added a slide into the corn! The kids enjoyed going up and down throughout the day J Next week they are going to investigate more ways to slide and ways to make music!
