I just started in a new day care facility and I work in the morning. I am in a classroom that has 9 18 month to 30 month olds. The teacher that releives me in the pm asks me 'What did they learn today?' I feel that with such a large age range, I cannot teach colors, numbers, shapes in a structured circle time. I would rather devote my attention to providing sensory activities for these children. When we play I point out shapes and colors to them with they toys that they have in their hands. Is this enough? Today we colored on newspaper with blue crayons, when they lost interest in that we tore up the newspaper in small pieces, then we all worked together to clean up the mess. Am I on the right path with this? Thanks for all of your imput!
