I started a new job last week. I am the new atelierista (art teacher) at a Reggio based preschool close to where I live and I just love love love it! Reggio is a play based approach that I learned about several years ago and immediately fell in love with.
We enhanced the water tray by adding a washing line. As well as wringing the clothes of water and in turn developing gross motor skills they also developed their fine motor skills by squeezing open the pegs! Also lots of fun!
This shape puzzle activity is great for all ages. Our almost-two-year-old enjoyed it, and did a great job with her puzzle, and the preschoolers had a blast, making matches, trading places and cheering each other on.
