The infant-B students are transiting into their new classroom, beautifully- engaging with various learning materials and exploring with their new friends.

The students created their first marks in their portrait books, painted, used crayons on canvas and had a blast investigating the light table - covered in puddles of bright, soft paint.

Beautiful job, Sloane!  Sloane and her classmates are strengthens their fine motor skills, as they draw with crayons- encouraging the movement of their fingers, hands and wrists. Strong fine motor skills help children manipulate small objects and eventually type, cut and do other complex activities that require working with the small muscles of the hands. Drawing also promotes hand-eye coordination.

Leo and Rohan loved the texture of the warm, puddles of bright paint on the light table! The students used their whole bodies to explore this provocation. The children pressed their hands, feet and tummies into the paint, smearing the paint across the illuminated light.

Parents, welcome to our Infant-B Blog for the school year!

Each Thursday the blog will be used to connect with you about our ongoing curriculum projects. The overarching "theme" for the year is Identity and Self.

Our first focus is on the individual child:

-Understanding the choices, they make

-Researching how they gain understanding of the world around them.

&

-How they communicate with us.

One of the questions we as educators, will be asking ourselves is:

How can we help the child form a positive sense of identity?

The infant-B classroom is full of investiagtors, curious minds and silly personalities. 

 

We are so excited for this new school year and happy to see how excited the infant-B students were, on their first days in school- excited to see their old friends and to make new ones.

To our amazing infant-B students,

We know you all will have a year full of discoveries and adventures. We are so excited to be here with you on this journey!
