Ducklings

November 28th - December 23rd

Winter Weather, Cubism, Soccer, and All That Laundry

Over the next four weeks, our Nest Play curriculum will invite children to engage in experiences that are both new and exciting! Our Ducklings will be engaged in activities that introduce and promote peer interactions such as working together to pass objects to one another and building tape towers. Children will use their inquisitive mind to explore nature and the world around them as they become window watchers and discover their outdoor learning environments. We will continue to promote the children’s development of new language as we listen and engage with our teachers about opposites and taking turns. We will also sit back and enjoy story time with our teachers and peers as we read books that support our “Winter Weather” theme.

In our Paints and Pianos program, our Ducklings will explore the world of fine arts through artists such as Pablo Picasso, Alexandra Nechita, Georges Braque, and Salvador Dali as we begin our unit on Cubism! They will get a chance to observe the different artists’ works of art as well as engage in teacher-led conversations about the mediums used while creating. The children will also receive opportunities to create a piece of cubism art of their very own! Education Coordinators will set various materials such as scrapbooking paper and newspaper print for collages as well as taste safe playdough for creating three dimensional pieces. Our Ducklings will hear stories inspired by Cubism such as” Look! Look! Look! At Sculpture” by Nancy Wallace to further draw connections to the artist and their work.

In Fit Buddies, our Ducklings will engage in various physical activities as we begin our “Soccer” unit! Our Education Coordinators will start the unit off by introducing the shape, color, and texture of a soccer ball. Throughout the unit, we will experiment with kicking the ball with our feet, knocking down cup towers with the ball, and kicking the ball into the net. To end each class, we will spend time practicing yoga and meditation poses to encourage children to feel connected with themselves and focus on their overall mind and body wellness!

In The Art of Living, we will be talking about “All That Laundry!” where our Ducklings will engage in various activities that will help promote important skills such as how to sort, wash, and fold our laundry. Through small group experiences and explorative play, we will practice the motions of putting our laundry into a basket, washing, and drying our laundry, packing and unpacking items, and other hands-on activities to help create meaningful experiences throughout the next 4 weeks!
