As the weather becomes nicer, it has been fun to explore our outdoor environment more and notice the changes as everything begins to bloom. As they grow and mature, they genuinely enjoy more opportunities to collaborate with their classmates and with other classrooms.
On a beautiful day this spring, we took the opportunity to visit the courtyard with the other toddler classroom. We caught bugs, drew, explored the bubbles, and just ventured around the courtyard that the younger children had not visited yet this school year. The children were very happy in the new area and tried to make the wind chimes sound, stood on rocks, walked through new flower beds, and walked along different paths.
