This week we were learning to share equipment and take turns...
Our activities included: making paper darts, making sandwiches, mixing paint, and drawing pictures in shaving foam.
Making paper darts was interesting as we only had one computer on which to watch the instructions...this meant lots of sharing and working together so that everyone could see the instructions and follow along with them at the same time. Isn't it frustrating when other people take longer to absorb visual instructions than others....but these are life skills we need to come to terms with as we grow up. Waiting and being patient are characteristics we often need when we are learning to share.
Making sandwiches also proved frustrating (for some) as they found spreading margarine or their choice of spread difficult. Parents....it might be time for your children to be making their own sandwiches at home??!! This is a great opportunity to practise their fine motor skills.
Overall another fantastic Discovery Time with some awesome learning opportunities.
