Start to Finish

This post combines at least 4 other previous posts related to everything from persistence and attention span to imagination, literacy, and fine motor skills….

Yesterday on the playground as we’re sliding around on the ice, one of our kiddos declared “Tomorrow we should speed skate like they do in the Olympics!” Well of course I’m going to take that and run with it – today we are conducting an entire Winter Olympics with luge events, ice dancing, snowboarding, and curling.

But that isn’t what I really want to write about. What I want to write about is the boy who takes this idea from start to finish and spends his entire day tracing out gold medals, writing HERO on them, hole punching them, stringing ribbon through and basically prepping the whole class for our day.

This speaks to not only cognitive ability but also physical and social too – I know adults who can’t see a project through from start to finish like this. THIS is what preschool is about.
