Hands up for Creativity and Patience Posted by Anita Moench Date November 18, 2016 1 2 1 2 1 2 1 2 Parents often say “My child touches everything” and that is just what children like to do with their hands! Hands are the parts of the body with the greatest positioning capability, so we can do so many things with them. With our hands we can grasp, clap, pat, kneed, knock, rub, hit, squeeze, push, rip, wave….and much more. At Playgroup we try different activities where you need your hands and either creativity or patience or even both! To make some play dough animals, a lot of kneading, rolling, flattening and creativity was necessary! Then patience was needed to pick up small puzzle pieces and find the right spots to put/push them in. Lots of fun was had at exploring both activities! 1 2 1 2 1 2 3 1 2 Share: Anita Moench Previous post DESK October Newsletter 2016/17 November 18, 2016 Next post Learning about right angles November 20, 2016 You may also like Preschool Year End Class Party 27 August, 2017 To celebrate our last day together as a class, and as the summative activity for our Celebrations unit, the Preschool students planned and prepared their own year end party.
