Sand/Water/Sensory

This area can be seen as an extension of the Nature/discovery area that readily promotes children's cognitive skills.    It engages children in making careful observations and comparisons using measurement and problem solving skills. Children discover that water can be splashed, poured, and frozen while sand can sifted, raked, and shoveled. They quickly notice that the physical appearance and properties of both can change when combined. Children learn about volume and capacity as they fill empty containers to discover that quantity remains the same regardless of the size or shape of the container.  They also explore cause and effect as they discover which objects sink and which objects float. 

One of the greatest resources teachers have is each other. Collaboration and sharing has proven to contribute to our success, development and growth.  Such growth can be stunted by isolation and holding onto inhibitors.  Growth depends on having the professional courage to believe and invest in yourself enough to breakthrough a comfort zone while learning newer and better ways of benefiting children as they learn and grow.  Until this happens, the students we care for and teach can only grow as far as we have grown ourselves.  We owe it to ourselves and our students to never stop growing.
