Learning about parts of a fish

This week we have been learning about the parts of a fish. We began by looking at images of fish during our circle time, and introduced new words at concepts. We then began a small art project of creating a fish bowl and fish.

Here the children are painting the blue background for their fish bowl. This exercise aimed at working gross motor skills, reinforce colors and to engage in messy play.

Under the Sea

This week we began our ocean unit. We began by looking at pictures during our circle time, and building on vocabulary. Today the children made Star Fish. This activity aimed at development of fine motor skills, sensory play and reinforcing knowledge of shapes.
