Nov – Jam Sandwiches
This week following on from a child’s show of tell of a flamingo we have been practicing balancing!
We started balancing objects using scales and measuring weight , then using our bodies!
Balance allows children to have better control over their bodies. Once balance is mastered it occurs naturally; allowing children to move their attention and focus onto other things.
Self care skills are one of the first ways that children develop the ability to plan and sequence task performance, to organise the necessary materials and to develop the refined physical control required to carry out daily tasks like opening lunch boxes, drawing or standing to pull up pants
For younger children, self care is all about learning the everyday life skills they need to thrive socially, mentally and physically. These skills could include; Dressing themselves. Personal hygiene like brushing their teeth.
We have been practicing with babies using the potty, pulling up pants, brushing their teeth, washing hands
Leaf play provides opportunities for language development, fine motor development, and creative dramatic play. What can you make out of leaves on your walk?
