Every time we come outside to play the Kinders have started a game of hide and seek. Today was the same but instead of the Kinders having trouble deciding who counts next, they started a game of 'blue shoe' all on their own!
If you are not familiar with the game 'blue shoe', it is a game where the children put both feet in the middle and one person says a little rhyme while taping the children's feet until the rhyme is over and one person has to take one foot out until there is only one person left. This was a great way for them to figure it out all on their own! They also found some pretty creative hiding spots!
This week in Kinders we have been continuing our learning about the Jungle.
We discussed how tall the Kinders thought different Jungle animals were and than compared that to how tall they actually are. First I showed them how tall a foot is. Than we discussed the different animals and I marked how tall they are on the white board. At the end we compared it to how tall the Kinders are. The next day the afternoon Kinders were showing the other kids our activity and telling them how tall some of the animals actually are. Their favorite was the Giraffe that can grow 11 feet tall which they discovered is taller than our ceiling. We even expanded this activity to another day so we could add some more animals to our chart.
