Recently the children have showed interest in water and what water can do. We incorporated this interest for water into our food exploration using celery and food coloring.
Recently, the children have been exploring the motion of trains. We set out a long sheet of butcher paper and dabs of tempera paint on the sides. Leaving the trains in the middle, each child grabbed a train dipped in the paint and started going around the table in a path.
The Toddler One children practiced fine motor skills in the Rainbow Room by using the dropper to add green watercolor and oil to the clear water. According to Donna Ackerson of the Tampa Child Care Examiner, fine motor skills can affect a child’s ability to eat, write legibly, use a computer, and turn pages in a book. In order to have a steady grasp of these developed abilities when the children are older, it is important for the children to have a foundation in stability, sensation, and bilateral coordination.
