It’s been a busy time in the Purple Room. We celebrated Valentine’s day through art and card making and reading books about family and love to help the children understand what the holiday is about.
The children continue to be engaged in dramatic play actively using the kitchen area as a restaurant and creating tea parties and picnics.
The materials on the train table are ever changing and always a favorite spot.
On rainy days we make sure to give the children plenty of active time in the movement room. They enjoy trikes, scooters, a seesaw, cars, balls and anything else we can pull out to ensure some vigorous activity.
Sensory opportunities abound in the Purple room. Play dough and sensory bins using kinetic sand, beans and other materials provide tactile experiences
Your children love to be helpers. We have a sweeper and brooms and dustpans. They will help dry off playground equipment. Last week one of the Big Day children asked to select the paint colors for the easel that day. Perhaps a new tradition has begun!
In movement, Preston uses a wide variety of activities including this one for balance and agility.
We are talking about the seasons which is a big concept for the toddler mind. Please be sure to notice with your child all the changes around us that signify Spring.
**Special request: we are out of baby wipes. If your child is still in diapers, please send in an extra container (or two) of wipes to resupply us. We could also use recycled water bottles and toilet paper rolls.** Thank you!
