Garden Toddlers Paint

March 5, 2014 by · Leave a Comment 

During work time last week the Garden Toddlers worked together to paint a mural.  They used paint brushes and stamps to make their picture.  The children chose which color paint they wanted to use as well.  The teachers were able to take anecdotal notes based on the following Key Developmental Indicators:

Approaches to Learning:  Initiative and Problem Solving

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

Physical Development and Health:  Moving parts of the body and moving with objects

Communication, Language, and Literature:  Listening and responding, non verbal communication, two way communication, and speaking.

Cognitive Development:  Exploring objects, exploring same and different, exploring more, and cause and effect

Creative Arts:  Exploring art materials and imitating and pretending

The finished work is located in our pod.  Make sure to check it out!

Cottage Toddlers Investigate Snow Indoors!

January 31, 2014 by · Leave a Comment 

 

Since unfortunately it’s been too cold for the children to go outdoors, the Cottage Toddlers decided to bring the outdoors inside!  They filled their sensory table with some snow.  And if you’ve seen our playground, you know there is PLENTY to work with.  The children who wanted to explore the fluffy white stuff gathered at the sensory table to check it out.  After I tool the pictures, the children added water colors as an experiment to see what would happen.  Their eyes lit up as it changed to a bright blue!  Mary and Allison were able to take anecdotes on the children under the following Key Developmental Indicators:  Approaches to Learning, Social and Emotional Development, Physical Development, Communication and Language, Cognitive Development, and Creative Arts.  Hopefully the weather will cooperate soon, so we can get the children back outside!

Cottage Toddlers Large Group

January 23, 2014 by · Leave a Comment 

Today for large group, the Cottage Toddlers danced with scarves.  They moved their bodies to many songs, including one of their favorites, “Take me out to the ball game.”  You may hear your child sing this song at home, the children ask for it all the time.  Mary was able to take anecdotal notes on the children which highlighted the following Key Developmental Indicators: Approaches to Learning, Social and Emotional Development, Physical Development and Health, Communication and Language, Cognitive Development, and Creative Arts.  It sure looks like they enjoyed moving to the music!

Today we held our annual “Friendship Stone Soup” lunch.  The children from the Cottage and the Terrace classrooms joined together to have lunch.  Thank you to all the parents who donated ingredients to make our soup a success, and to the parents who came and had lunch with us!
