This week in Shale classroom we explored the idea of bringing the outside inside. Some experiences we brought in were filling the water table with snow, this gave the children a chance to touch and feel the cold snow while being in a warm environment. We also played with contact paper and experienced the feeling of having our feet stick. Some children didn’t enjoy that feeling but they did like making a collage out of streamers on the contact paper. At this age the children really seem to enjoy touch so we want to provide lots of sensory experiences!
