The best part about having my own program is following the children's lead. That doesn't mean that I don't have a plan for each day. It means that sometimes the children's interests steer us in a different direction and that is okay.
It was very clear by 8:30 a.m. that these little bodies needed to be MOVING today.
How do I keep them busy until outside time?
Give them something to stand on and jump from.
As more children started to gather. I realized we needed more supplies.
I sent a couple children into other areas to gather my requested materials.
They had so much fun experimenting and moving.
Lots of moving. A little bit of risk assessment. Math. Science. Problem Solving. What a "productive" day!
I am hoping they will gather the materials on their own next time the have the wiggles.
