Toddler Program

september 2019

With the start of a new year, comes so many new connections being made! Many of the children shared a common interest in the program this month – using tools and “fixing” things.

While exploring a real hammer with nails, Miko, age 2, shared some of his thoughts, understandings, and memories of a hammer he has seen before.

“Going in wood”“Look”“Big hammer tapping on wood”

“Wow!” “Look… hammer going in wood”

Miko shares as he hammers one nail into the wood, carefully and with caution.

Miko has great control, hitting the nail on the head. Then he stops and puts the hammer down to tell us more about what he knows:

“Construction site on Paw Patrol… I watch Ryder on construction crew.. Rubble on construction crew”

“Digger! I read construction book at Tata’s house” “Green truck from construction site”

Miko shares some memories of other times he has seen a hammer in action. His memory recall is incredible in helping us understand the connections that he is making!
