For the first of today's Friday afternoon 5 year olds sessions I used the same book as yesterday but in a different way. Today we focused on how we would keep ourselves dry in a storm, generating lots of ideas and then creating some umbrella art. I've realized things need to be far more structured with this group for them to feel they have experienced success. So today's challenge focused on following instructions and fostering independence.
I wonder what the kids will call me, today one said "I'm looking for the Apple Teacher"......and another said "Are you Mrs Maker?" ......funny.
