Exploring Fruit

Our mindful practitioners tune into the children and react to their interests so today when the children were exploring the fruit we added some magnifying glasses to the table which gave the children the opportunity to explore the fruit in a different way.
Teachable moments can happen anywhere at anytime if you stand back and watch what is happening you can extend these moments in a non intrusive way helping the children to get the best from their experiences.
This morning we have observed the children using lots of different describing words as they explored the fruit and made predictions about what they might see when we cut into it….
To extend this further we will be taking the children to our orchard this morning armed with their new gardening kits to explore and investigate…… We will post more photos later to see what we find.
