Clucking with the Chickens

One of the best things about doing Community Based Rehabilitative Services (CBRS) is the flexibility to take advantage of the child's natural environment. This often means engaging in activities that the classroom is doing or that a child in a home is doing. Typically, I arrive during group or center time, or even during art activities.

Only at Partners In Learning would I arrive to see my CBRS child planting seeds and clucking along with chickens.

"Can you open my seeds PLEEEEEASE?"

If you have never gone out to the chicken coop at PIL, you should definitely check it out!

Cluck, cluck

This natural learning environment is such a wonderful experience for children. The child that I visit loved getting dirty and seeing the animals. We talked about the chickens and roosters, which ones were big and which were little. We identified the colors of the bunny rabbits. We then dug holes in the garden plots with our fingers before planting some seeds. This activity was a great addition to the children's daily lessons.
