The weather has been lovely this week.  The temperatures are moderate and the rain is holding back.  Our outdoor classrooms are in use constantly.  In between treks in the woods and stories on the rock, we break down for a bit of good-old-fashioned, shake-it-out play.

While looking for a soccer ball the other day, two boys happened upon a small ball and a tube we set out for a ramp/tunnel.  We (being closed-minded, non-imaginative, grown-ups) suggested that they could throw the ball and try to catch it.  They had other plans.

Not sure what learning you are seeing? Try these on:

  • Creative Use of Materials
  • Motor Planning
  • Arm/Hand/Implement Coordination
  • Problem Solving
  • Abstract Thought
  • Representational Play
  • Conflict Management
  • Patience
  • Self-Regulation
  • Mentoring Other Students
  • The Art of Compromise
