The children in the Caterpillar Group have been exploring their environment through role playing!! The whole group was involved whether it be pretending to be the mom, dad, sister, baby, cat, cook, server, doctor, etc. Late last week we brought out the light table and added some x-rays to observe and of course, this turned into a whole doctor office experience! The doctors office was a very busy place, with was an x-ray station, some patients needed casts for their broken arms, and even babies needed to be cared for by the doctor.
.The educators realized that everyone wanted to join but unfortunately the doctors office was too small, and there was signs reminding us to practice social distancing so we needed to improvise. The educators made a plan.... instead of just one area being the doctors office, what if the whole kinder care room became the hospital with different rooms?
On Wednesday morning, we welcomed the 'doctors' into their new facility! There was a proper waiting room with a sign in sheet, a research lab, an x-ray station and even a blood lab!!
"What seems to be the problem here, how are you feeling today? Happy? Sad? Nervous? I need to check it off on this form."
"What bone do you need fixing? Here come with me and we will get a cast.... please hold your arm up straight like this."
"This is their blood, and this is yours... I'm doing a blood test."
"OPERATION!!! QUICK, we need to get you to the operation room you're bleeding!! Hurry, lay down!!"
The Doctor Office was busy all morning! Patients came in and out for eye tests, check ups, blood work and x-rays! The doctors made sure that everyone was safe and healthy! It seemed that a lot of babies were being born by the end of the morning!! Maybe the children will need to open a school for the kids to go to? A restaurant for the family to eat at? Stay tuned to see what we do next!!
