I am also going to put more chairs and tables throughout the playground. I am also inspired to add lots more plants and signs.

Lisa Trefry August 5, 2020 Log in to Reply Our preschool is adjacent to a woodland area that is used in the summer as a YMCA camp. So the space is beautiful and easy to access. it provides us the opportunity to observe and learn about nature. I am thinking of incorporation our playground as a meeting place for drop off and pick up and then head into the camp space to have a group meeting and continue with our learning schedle . i can envision the kids create many playful scenarios. It would be great to incorporate natural materials for art and math and science and even theatre dance and song. I want to incorporate the S hooks on our fence for their personal belongings and if affordable set up a tent for stations that need protection for the weather. I love the idea for towels for sit spots and individual play backpacks so children can be responsible and learn to take care of their belonging, help clean up after using items, as well as to take home in the even of school closure. We are cutting down 8 large trees at our home that I am now thinking can be brought to the program to create learning areas. The sky is the limit, I love these ideas.

It has inspired me to create a log circle area to join for story time. I really think creating different colored picnic table for groups was a great idea. Along with organizing the outdoor spaces into areas and making individual playful packs for each child. Very helpful ideas during covid. Thanks, Carla Victoria Hackett August 5, 2020 Log in to Reply Music to my ears! Glad this was helpful. Would love to see pictures of your developments. Feel free to post on in our Facebook group. anne August 4, 2020 Log in to Reply This workshop has inspired me to look at my daily schedule and incorporate as much time as possible outside. I love the idea of having rest time outside, under a shady tree. The non sleepers will have lots to look at, and listen to. I also want to add signage to different areas. How a bout a sign near the swings that reads SOAR? My classroom shared their favorites and memories from last year. One comment was “the funniest thing to happen at school was when my friend jumped in the puddles.” I want more of that. This was a great workshop!
