I can hardly believe that this journey started almost two years ago with the number one and the color red! Here we are, all the way at number ten - gold!!! What a time we have had with various Practical Life activities which correspond to each color/number of the Short Bead Stair. The children have gained a deeper understanding of the Short Bead Stair and its connection to other math materials and lessons. We have so enjoyed our collaboration in a series of art pieces that adorn a long hallway leading out to our outdoor space. How we all have been looking forward with great anticipation for the number ten - gold evokes such a celebratory mood! Here a few pictures of these festive shelves:
|Wet Transfer Practical Life|
|Dry Transfer Practical Life|
|Finger Knitting and Crochet trays - How much fun is that yarn?!|
|Weaving with various gold ribbons.|
|One of the tweezing activities - I think the gold foam gives the tray a whole new look!|
As you might imagine, the children have been quite excited about the gold. Actually, the teachers have been too! :-) There is certainly much to celebrate as this color reminds everyone where we started, and how far we have come over the past two years.
More 'golden updates' to come! :-)
