The Progressive Classroom
November always feels like such a short month because it comes and goes before we know it!
This month our friends in Ambarino spent time working with jars they are working to open and close. Watching them use this work in different ways has been such a pleasure to witness.
Our older friends have been working to get the lids off, and attempt to get them back on. Our other friends attempt to get the lids off as well and have also discovered the jars make different sounds on different surfaces. They have also enjoyed working with any other type of container they find around the room that they can manipulate by themselves. Other popular works this month were a soft cat stringing work, the ball tracker, and a peg work.
Favorite books of the month included This Little Turkey by Aly Fronis, Gobble Gobble by Rodger Priddy, and Five Silly Turkeys by Salina Yoon.
Many of our friends have discovered new forms of mobility, which has taken exploration of the classroom to a new level! It has been such a joy to see the looks of accomplishment on our friends faces when they discover they can move in different ways and are so proud of themselves.
In December we will be working on a special holiday gift, working with several new red and green works around the classroom and singing winter themed songs.
We hope you have been enjoying time with family and friends as the holiday season continues!
