*Daily Provocations- During this time, some children choose to engage in process art or free play with classroom materials, but often children will engage themselves in the provocations set up by the teachers that are set up in response to observations of the children's interests. To find a provocation for your child, think about what they have shown interest in lately. Here are some examples:
-Trucks- Set up a construction site with trucks, dirt, sticks, and leaves.
-Glue- Cut up collage items to glue on recyclables or paper.
-Paint- Find different and interesting things to paint- rocks, cardboard, pine cones, acorns
-Sensory Play- Make play dough or slime at home.
-Movement- Make an obstacle course.
-Doctor- Set up a hospital with dolls, animals, and medical supplies.
We will be posting ideas frequently on the blog for activities that you can do from home to keep things fun and engaging!
Please comment with your own ideas, pictures, ideas, or provocations so that we can create an interactive community while we keep our community safe from home.
