We are so excited to have some cooler weather! This change in temperature has sparked a spontaneous sense of joy. In celebration, Mrs. Jen’s class enjoyed a picnic lunch today outside. One of the reasons we love play-based learning is that the teachers have the freedom to capitalize on teachable moments, and changing their activity plan on the fly in order to make the most of fun experiences is just one way they can do that. These kids did not just go eat outside today. They experienced the joy of a gentle breeze and sunshine while working on social skills in a unique setting. They learned that even though the location had changed, we still must use manners like staying at the table to eat our food, and not grabbing our neighbor’s food!
