Ocean week yesterday afternoon consisted of some pretend play and some motor skills work.
We first pretended to have claws like the crabs in the ocean. He loved trying out the different tongs we were using for claws. He didn't want any help and although at times would get frustrated, he was quick to try again. That made his success so much more exciting and he was very proud of himself.
We then got a blue sheet out and all his ocean buddies. We practiced going underwater, on top of the water, and putting his animals under water.
We love pretend play over here. Never be too shy or tired to get down and crawl around on the floor with them. They absolutely soak it up.
