“Preschool Explorations in the Rain, Part 1: Music and Art”
“Today we had a rainy day which means no outdoor exploration! What are your tried and true rainy day activities?” “Weather says it’s supposed to rain the rest of the week! We can’t go outside. What are your suggestions?” I am a member of a number of Facebook groups for preschool teachers and directors, and a common topic of discussion is advice for indoor gross motor activities when it rains. My usual advice is to skip the indoor gross motor activities and just head outside.
HEART-TO-HEART CONNECTING WITH SUPERKID POWER
“I love you, Grandma Boom!” The preK boy and I had direct eye contact. We also were connecting heart-to-heart with heart slinky toys to have a visual/tactile experience along with the warmth we felt in our hearts. This 3D approach made in-depth connecting with each other REAL. I provided every child in several settings these heart slinkies to serve as a focusing agent for heart-to-heart connection by giving compliments to one another while also having direct eye contact.
