Mrs. Ronda included Spooner Boards and Bilibo Seats in her Sandbox set up. The children practiced balancing, rocking and spinning using these super cool toys. I love to watch them embrace this open ended material. These items spur creative thought and movement...the children pretended they were surfing and boogy boarding, skateboarding and hill climbing.
I presented a unit on fire safety. The children made firefighter crowns, then grabbed our slim tubes and put out tons of fires while yelling, NINE, ONE, ONE... TO THE RESCUE!
Inside the classroom we've been assembling repeating color patterns using our Unifix cubes. I still hear the children chant: black, white, black, white, black, white in my sleep!
