Ducklings

WEEKS 5-8

All about me, Caring for others, Pop Art, and Broom ball

Throughout the next four weeks in our Nest Play curriculum, we will be exploring many activities where children will get to learn about themselves, friends, and family. We will also work on how to label and recognize emotions and make choices independently. Our ducklings will get more opportunities to explore colors and letters and many new sensory and hands-on learning experiences and games. We look forward to the fun and learning to take place in these weeks.

In our Paints & Pianos program, our Ducklings will dive into the world of fine arts as they explore Pop Art! They will get a chance to look at and hear about different artists and their artwork in addition to some fun and hands-on experiences that really let them feel connected to the art world. We will read stories, explore, and manipulate images of different pieces of artwork, and even get a chance to try out new art techniques that are closely related to the Pop Art genre.

In The Art of Living, we will be talking all about “Caring for Others!” as we interact with peers and teachers in the classroom. Through small group experiences, such as storytime, mealtimes, explorative play, and community meetings, we will model and explore how to recognize and meet the needs of our peers, how to make choices when presented to us, and how to care for other beings such as our pets at home!

In The Art of Living, we will be focused on “Saying it right!” as we interact with peers and teachers in the classroom. Through small group experiences, such as story time, explorative play, and community meetings, we will model and explore how to include our peers in our classroom experiences and how to make those experiences positive and memorable for all children. We will use verbal and nonverbal cues to practice communication with one another and incorporate different ways that young children can ensure their needs are being met. Finally, we will explore, practice, and model how we can apologize and work through social struggles with our peers and teachers.
