Making Learning Visible
28th February 2017
Sensory Learning has shaped our Discovery Room program for the first term. Touch, Feel and Discover as the 0-3year olds began the year with exploring senses. The educators set as many different experiences of the children's learning interests in sensory exploration.
They children loved playing with water and sand as they experimented with the two.
We explored other experiences of water, sand, ice, rice and dirt- as the children had lots of experimenting, investigating and learning about their senses.
We explored the outdoors in nature, used our fresh produce from the garden and chickens and was involved in music and movement.
