Exploring all four seasons in preschool

by Deborah J. Stewart, M.Ed. on March 30, 2011

in Activity Boxes, Four Seasons

Through out this week, the children have been exploring the four seasons. For one of our activity boxes, we set out laminated trees and symbols to go on the trees that represent each of the four seasons…

Before playing with the four season items, the teacher brainstormed with the children about which season each symbol might represent..

The children then put on their thinking caps and sorted the symbols onto the trees. There wasn’t a lot of room at the table so this little girl decided it would be just as fun to try this out on the floor…

This is just one of many activities going on through out the classroom. The children are given plenty of time to choose which activities they want to try and then gravitate from one play experience to another. You can hear lots of talking and laughing as the play goes on…

This is a good reason to keep those floors clean – the entire classroom is part of the learning environment!

You are so sweet Centers! Thank you!

another question from a happy follower of your wonderful blog:
Center Time–do you allow students in each room to roam and choose activities and spend as long as they like at an activity, or do you use sign in/sign out process where number of students and time slot per center is limited?

We allow children to freely gravitate from center to center but we teach the children how many children can be at a center at a time and if it is full that they need to move on to another center and check back. They do not get to all centers in a day, in most cases, but the kids are used to this and they know there is always another day.
