The Portland House toddler children have been spending lots of time out in the garden collecting lots of natural resources such as leaves, sticks and pinecones. We then made a sorting tray to see if we could sort these items into various piles.
The children were very good at looking and understanding where they needed to place their item. We looked at the different colours of the leaves and talked all about how the leaves are starting to fall from the trees and how they make loud crunching noises under our feet when we walk on them.
The children were very good at counting some of these items too and understanding the terms ‘more’ and ‘less’.
