    Default Would you use this as an observation?

    My mindee 1yr has started posting things through my cat flap She will purposfully (SP) go & get something & carry it into the kitchen & post it, then will spend sometime looking through it to see if she can see it.

    So like the title says: Would you write an observation up on this?

    You could do -

    PSR&N - working out how to get the right size thing through the flap

    KUW - working out how the flap works.

    PSED - understanding that you are not going to keep going outside to bring the things back in!!!!!!!!!
    I'm not paranoid - the world IS out to get me!

    Wonder how long before she posts herself through it! Hope its not the one time you have decided you have had enough of going outside to bring them in!

    oohhhhhhhhhhh now thats funny BT!

    dear parent I'm afraid your child decided to post herself through the catflap again, due to it being my tea break I chose not to fetch her back in in order to teach her a lesson .. no more posting through the catflap!

    yours understandingly tired and childless childminder

    ps. if you feel the need to terminate your contract please note there is a 6 month notice period that must be paid at double rate from the day i recived the letter!

    Definitely, she is getting so much out of doing that.

    She's learning that things are still there even though you can't see them, she's learning cause and effect, hand co-ordination, she's getting exercise from traipsing back and forth, she's being inquisitive, bla bla bla!

    I bought a wooden, toy, postbox from ELC and it had little wooden letters to post through and children loooove it! They play with it again and again. It's good for colours as each letter has a different colour, it's good for counting, hand co-ordination, experimenting to see what will fit through the slot, etc.

    I think it's a fab activity and they seem to be kept amused by that sort of thing for ages!
