And here we have another wonderful Sunny Spring day at Aqua and the children having lots of fun. They started their morning off with having breakfast and greeting each other as they arrived at BBC today.
The children have enjoyed the shopping experience, so we continue to explore it outside. Its so nice to hear the different conversations the children have while they do their shopping.
At small group times children learned about seasons of the year and benefits of trees and plants in our lives. Continuing with the daisy experience, the children were invited to paint their very own. While some children did some panting, other children used the tools and manipulated the soil into the boxes.
Children are gradually learning the benefits of planting. It encourages all the children’s senses when they smell and touch the different textures. It teaches responsibility and it also introduces Aqua children to scientific concepts while watching our plants grow. The children really enjoyed the day and are so eager to learn.
As we all know, free play is quite popular among children and it helps develop their social skills, cognitive, fine motor, and gross motor skills as well. Not to mention that it builds creativity and ability to come up with unique ideas. For example Grace who was selling fruit for free to have more customers.
