Gardening - Infant

Posted by [email protected] on May 12, 2022 at 2:55 PM

This week in the infant classroom the theme is gardening! Here are a few things we explored and talked about this week! Our entire group enjoyed the warmer weather this week, and we were able to take a group walk. Teachers labeled and pointed to familiar vehicles like yellow school buses and garbage trucks as well as dogs and flowers we saw on the walk! The group also enjoyed painting with bubble wrap and handled sponge brushes with teacher help. We also explored jumbo chalk and bubbles during our patio time outside. The older infants loved making marks with their chalk and practicing signs like “more” and “please” for bubbles. It has been a great week in the infant classroom but we look forward to a new theme on Monday. Until next time!
