A Peg and a Plan...
The children have been intrigued by some wooden pegs and a tube that we added into the environment this morning. One particular child started by examining the pegs, turning them around in his hands. This child then used the pegs to fill the tube. One of the educators showed that the pegs had a slit in them and following this the child successfully placed the pegs on the edge of the tube. The process was repeated many times with great concentration.
As educators we were curious if the children’s hand eye coordination and dexterity were refined enough to allow success with the pegs. The children surprised us with how quickly they were able to master this skill.
