what a treat to have someone from across the ocean to give us new perspective.
ms. vilia is from indonesia so we looked at our maps again, drew some land shapes, then practiced writing.
some of the preschoolers were satisfied making their i shapes while others went on to add 8 more letters! when preschoolers are in their pre-k year, we help them complete these kind of tasks…for the others it is optional. it is clear when writing is interesting to a child. we’ve had preschoolers who looked pained everytime they held a crayon or pencil who are now impressive writers!
again, we plant the seeds and provide opportunity and encouragement.
