  2. 2. We  are:   • Beginning  to  understand  cause  and  effect   relationships   • Developing  fine  motor  strength,  dexterity   and  control   • Approaching  tasks  with  increased   imagination  
  3. 3. Water  Pipes  in  the  bathroom   “We  looked  in  the  toilet  and  we   saw  that.    We  were  lookin’  in   there.  We  fixed  the  water   pipes.”  ~Tyrese   “Ms.  Thompson  pulled  the   thing  up.  Then  it  went  around   and  around.”  ~Anthony

  5. 5. Water  pipes  outside!   The  children  got  to  choose  what  setting  they  would  like  to  try  the  sprayer   on  and  then  we  counted  to  5  together  while  they  sprayed.   We  are:   • Participating  in  simple  investigations  to  test  observations  and  draw  conclusions   • Following  simple  oral  directions   • Using  language  related  to  distance  and  size    
  6. 6. Setting  up   shop…   The  children  decided  to  name  our   shop  “The  Fix-­‐It  Plumbing  Shop”   We  are:   • Understanding  the  purpose  of  print   • Demonstrating    letter  formation  in   “writing”   • Developing  an  awareness  of  jobs  and   what  it  takes  to  perform  them   • Participating  in  a  variety  of  dramatic   play  activities
