Perspectives: Mirrors Learning Group
Week of November 18, 2013
The children were very amused at the new kinds of reflections they saw in the mirror paper today. They laughed and said their reflections were silly. A few children also tried to make their faces look like what they saw in the reflections. Many of the children also were interested to see if something was behind the felt board, maybe they thought something was causing their reflections to look different? The children also felt the mirror paper and noticed it moved and changed their reflections. Oscar made some similar comments to when we explored with mirrors in the water table.
It was interesting to see how the children related their experiences with mirrors so far this semester to what we did this week. The children have been bringing objects to the mirrors with them as well. Next week, I’d like to focus on reflections up close and far away.
