This week we explored the children’s interests in threading. Early in the week we brought in a self standing peg board and the children used ribbons to weave in and out of the holes. It proved to be challenging to pull the ribbon through for some children, while others were able to thread the ribbon with ease. Once the children found they were able to thread the ribbon, they soon lost interest quickly. They did not attempt threading the ribbon back the other way. This led me to believe that their interest was in threading in one direction.
After observing how interested they were to use the wire in threading, I intend to bring in other objects to thread with the wire.
