Does It Fit? Which Sounds Do You Hear?
In Kindergarten, children will be asked to use the most frequently occurring prepositions (e.g., to, from, in, out, on, off, for, of, by, with).
Observing small stones in and out of glass jars is a great way to discover size and sound.
Allowing Grey to move throughout different size rocks at his own pace gave him the opportunity to discover which rocks fit into the glass jar.
The glass jar allowed us to begin talking about how sounds are made from vibrations.
Since I was right next to Grey, I felt that the glass jar was safe. Please remain close by when making observations with glass.
You can also begin to talk about what sounds you hear as the stones hit the bottom of the jar and make connections to other objects that sound the same.
