During work time the Cottage and Terrace toddlers worked together to create a mural by using paint and sponges.  The activity was set up in the Terrace classroom which allowed children to choose if they wanted to paint or engage in a different area between the two classrooms.  The children who made the choice to paint were observed using the following Key Developmental Indicators:

Approaches to Learning-Initiative, self-help

Social and Emotional Development-Relationships with peers, playing with others, group participation

Physical Development-Moving parts of the body

Communication, Language, and Literacy-Listening and responding, non verbal communication, two way communication, speaking

Cognitive Development-Exploring objects, exploring more, cause and effect

Creative Arts-Exploring art materials

The teachers are currently working on a display for the mural.  Stay tuned!  :)
