Modeling clay is my favorite ๐Ÿฅฐ gives kiddos the chance to work on building their fine motor muscles. ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿฝ We did a new type of art today, printing. Taking an object and painting it to transfer that image onto paper. I love when my kiddos learn new words and their meaning ๐Ÿฅฐ

A little preview of our day

Things I highly recommendโ€ฆ (purchased on Amazon)

1. Pencil grip holders โœ๏ธ

โญ๏ธ if you have a preschooler who struggles with the correct form this helps a lot ๐Ÿฅฐ

2. Plastic children knives

โญ๏ธit only cuts fruit and veggies and itโ€™s a wonderful way to teach safety using kitchen utensils and its a great fine motor activity

Long read but itโ€™s a good one you wonโ€™t want to miss out on reading ๐Ÿ“– ๐Ÿ‘€โ™ฅ๏ธ

Washing lines ?
Take down the washing lines of 30 identical cards, crafts and calendars strung across the Early Years classroom.

Letโ€™s refrain from dictating and planning what art work children are going to create. 30 identical Christmas cards and calendars all carefully planned and every child creates and participates ๐Ÿ™ˆ

Letโ€™s stop focusing on the end product and allow childrenโ€™s creativity to flow freely. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ

Vygotsky told us
โ€œIt must not be forgotten that the basic law of children's creativity is that its value lies not in its results, not in the product of creation, but in the process itself.

It is not important what children create, but that they do create that they exercise and implement their creative imagination.โ€ ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผโ™ฅ๏ธ

Not only are we restricting creativity of children with our pre planned ideas and hand print cards and craptivities ๐Ÿ˜ฐ- but then we go and bombard the environment with all this stuff hung up, pinned up and strung across the room!

Visual NOISE, overstimulates the senses. Which in turn can impact on how a child feels and behaves.

Ever felt completely overwhelmed by crowded places? Too much mess or clutter ?

This is how a child might feel when they are in a classroom thatโ€™s bombarded with too much stuff !

So, weโ€™ve taken away their opportunity to be expressive and creative AND THEN we go hang up all the identical crafts across the room - impacting on childrenโ€™s ability to think clearly and play in a space of calm !

When their senses are under attack from SO MUCH information, no wonder children struggle to think and self regulate.
Fight or flight kicks in ! ๐Ÿ˜ฐ Melt downs happen and we wonder why they behave in certain ways ๐Ÿ™ˆ

Time to recognise that itโ€™s US who have to change OUR behaviour - to unlearn and relearn a different way of doing stuff !

To understand WHY?
To reflect on Why we do what we do?
Who is it for ?
Does it meet their needs?

Letโ€™s ensure FREEDOM of expression
FREEDOM of creativity and imagination and FREEDOM of space and awareness of how it FEELs to be in the room ?

* Reflection is KEY ๐Ÿฅฐ
Take what you want, take what you need. Or ignore the lot. ๐Ÿ˜† But itโ€™s essential we reflect on what we do & who we do it for. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐Ÿฅฐ
