August marks back to school and new children in groups. Here is an activity that can help the ECEs, caregiver/s or parents, and the other children to learn more about each other and appreciate our similarities and differences.


ACTIVITY:


Flower activity – put child’s photo or name in the middle and each petal will represent a new thing we learned about the child (especially for those group with new children)


For home: Make one for each child or each person in the family


This can be a continuous activity and you can keep adding petals as you learn new things about each other.
