What an exciting week at MSBG as we welcomed so many grandparents and special visitors! The Early Childhood classrooms were a buzz and the children had the opportunity to demonstrate their lessons and share their work. Thank you to all our guests that shared in our special week.
The Early Childhood West classroom introduced Food Prep and the children had the opportunity to spread jam on a cracker. Fabric Matching and Wood Polishing were also added to the practical life shelf. These works allow the children to practice differentiating between patterns and shapes and the patience and fine motor skills of polishing and cleaning delicate wood items. In addition, the Geo Boards were also added to practical life; when doing this work the children use their hand muscles to stretch rubber bands to place over pegs allowing geometric designs to be created. Measurement was added to the math shelf; this work is exciting as it allows the children to visually understand the differences in length.
