ELC Floats

This post is also available in: Português

Every week ELC teachers take it in turns to plan for outdoor provocations with different purposes in mind, in order to elicit thinking and the development of particular skills. Ms. Che’te placed floats with varied shapes and colours for the children to play with and interestingly the children organised them into trampolines. Children experimented with different motions such as hopping, jumping and skipping from one float to the other. While some students made connections between how the floats felt (i.e. ‘it’s wobbly’; EAL learners were seen squatting and uttering ‘rabbit’ to express their experience and understanding) other students made links to the colours and shapes of the floats (i.e. ‘they look like rainbows’ or ‘they are triangles’). All in all, this provocation promoted the development of students’ self-management skills such as gross-motor and spatial awareness – invaluable skills for the growth and development of our students in early childhood.
