It is evidence that the Brave Bears have grown after the winter break. They are beginning to follow rules and directions more consistently and are able to relay instructions to others.
During PE time, the Brave Bears had played a game with rules, “Bulldozers and Builders.” One team was the bulldozer and the other team was the builders. The bulldozers had a great time knocking down the “building” while the builders had difficulty from keeping the “buildings” standing. It was a bit chaotic at the beginning, but eventually, the Brave Bears and Superheroes got the rules of the game.
During exploration time, the Brave Bears find out which sticks were long and short from the sticks that they found from the secret garden. Picking sticks were inspired by the story “Stick & Stone by Beth Ferry and Tom Lichtenheld. Next, the Brave Bears will be asked what can they make with a stick and a stone.
Lastly, during Friday cooking, the Brave Bears sorted out together the oranges (small, medium & big).
….and of course, they made the orange juice together! 🙂 What do you think the Brave Bears will make next time?
