Themed Activities - By: Dionna Jones and Carrie Wolfe
Over the last few weeks, the childcare professionals have been implementing different crafts and activities that correspond to a particular theme. June has been an Ocean Theme!
We have had a blast watching the children learn about seahorses through reading Mr. Seahorse by Eric Carle (far left in photo collage) and by completing a tissue paper craft (top right in photo collage). The children learned about octopuses through finger painting suction cups on their tentacles (bottom middle in photo collage).
This theme and all of the crafts and activities have created more structure for the children throughout the day. It is greatly improving the quality of their time at Jeremiah's Place! We look forward to our Bug Themed July!
And thank you to those who sent us items inspired by our theme to help build our activities!
