On Wednesdays, we go to the motor room during our gross motor time. We are working on many things while in the motor room -- gross motor skills, following directions, and organizing our sensory systems -- just to name a few!
This week in the motor room, we set up a fall theme. We crawled through the tunnel and picked up apples to velcro to our apple tree. Then we got to climb up the stairs and see ourselves in the bubble mirror! After that, we used pictures or words to communicate that we wanted to go down the slide...and crash into a giant pile of leaves! Each child got several turns around the course before we listened to some quiet music and worked on slowing our bodies down! Next week, the motor room will have the same theme which gives us the opportunity to practice our skills again!
