Back to Volta Park for Movement and Shadow
Teamwork and Communication
In addition to concepts of body movement and shadow exploration, children were actively engaged with social learning during our time at Volta Park today. We observed many joyful moments of relationship-building in enjoying one another's company and getting to know and work together. Evelyn called out reminders of "Teamwork!" to her friends as they worked together to spin Lane. As children spun one another in groups, children gave feedback to time their movements, adjust speed and body placement, and respect one another's sense of balance and safety.
Most spinning was was approached with speed but Maren took a different approach, spinning Evelyn slowly.
Places of Connection
The park and outdoor spaces provide children with places of connection. Here children play in peer-groups at the slide implementing fun social games and spooky dramatic play scenarios.
Other Body Exploration: "It feels good. It feels like I can do it."
When the children were asked how their bodies felt while climbing the nets, Lou Lou said, "It feels good. It feels like I can do it." Sally described an aspect of what the physical motion of pumping on the swing feels like or possibly how it works: "Our tummies have a pump."
