Feeling the Forest

IMG_7192

We used R’s outdoor play time to do a nature walk to enhance the planned activity for the day.  It worked out perfectly since the rain had finally let up at this point.  There were tons of textures to explore in the woods and by the creek near the green belt.  R grabbed, pulled apart, scraped, scratched, poked and rubbed anything she could find.  I extended her learning by providing words for the different textures such as rough, smooth, spiky and soft.  Although I have no expectation for R to use the words, I still do provide the textural words to expand R’s listening vocabulary.
