This week we decided to do an underwater ocean scene.  The children were very excited to see fish on the wall.  Many of them were familiar with different types of ocean animals and named the different animals.  They were engaged in acting out the fish swimming on the wall.  Mazzy started making his fish fall onto the ground, saying “Splash!”  On Thursday we decided to include the water table under our underwater image and added many different ocean animals to the water.  The children interacted with both the water and the image on the wall.  They were inspired to make their fish swim and jump out of the water.  This provocation of the water table being added engaged the children in a more rich pretend play experience.  Abraham decides each week to include dinosaurs to our exploration, so next week we will extend these ideas by having a dinosaur scene projected onto the wall.
