Ms. Jenna's toddlers are getting a head start on valentines day with these adorable heart crafts. Putting their pictures and names by their art work for everyone to see is not only adorable, but helps communicate to the children that we value their work and they can take pride in a job well done!
Coming up with activities to do with older infants can be so challenging. Finding an activity that is beneficial to the child's development and engages the child can be near impossible at this age. Here are some ideas our infant teachers use to continuously be encouraging the development of each child's individual goals.
Below you can see our infant teacher made a sensory hula hoop. They tied patterned cloth, plastic rings, loofas, and rattles on the hoop for the children to explore. They set the child in the middle of the hoop and allowed the child to explore the hoop. This encourages their natural curiosity and confidence in experiencing new things. It also helps encourage movement like, rolling onto their side or belly, and grabbing for the sensory items.
Ms. Jenna's toddler 2 class went on a hunt for shapes while on their walk today. Each child got to pick which shape they wanted to hunt for and carried around the cut outs, pictured below, to help them find their shape! It can be very beneficial to bring learning out side of the classroom. A new and exciting environment will increase a child's curiosity, and therefore their engagement in the lesson. The children had a blast while learning along the way!
