Peter is constructing sentences.
Deia is concentrating on scrubbing a table. Practical Life exercises help the child develop concentration as there are many steps to these exercises.
Lorenzo is scrubbing a table. He is also learning how to sequence the steps of this work activity.
This week we are learning about Dinosaurs. What did the dinosaurs eat? Were they all meat eaters? How do we know that the dinosaurs existed? The children are sure to enjoy being paleontologists this week. During Circle Time, we will read various books about dinosaurs. This is a great time to learn the difference between fiction and non-fiction stories. For example, is the story How do Dinosaurs go to School a fiction or non-fiction book? The books we will read include If Dinosaurs were Alive Today and Brontorina.
