Apples or any kind of fruit or veggie are always fun props for a lesson. Children always seem so mesmerized by the things that we can do with fruits and vegetables that are So Much Fun! It definitely gives them a new perspective of that thing on their plate that they are trying to feed the dog under the table.
Every once in a while we like to give you a "day in the life of" one of our little Nookers. Here is a glimpse into one day last week. We learned our primary colors, secondary colors, and that it takes water and light to make a rainbow! More importantly, we had a BLAST while learning : )
We started off with our 3 primary colors...
and then we mixed them.
The children were amazed to see that when we poured the blue in the yellow jar, green appeared!
We matched colors on the felt board and the older children worked on learning which primary colors yielded which secondary colors.
Off to the art room to make a mobile and color the rainbow!
We believe that children should be playing and learning as soon as they can! No one is too young to learn at The Little Nook!
I usually have a paintbrush in their little hands before they have even held a spoon.
