    So i have my nursery trial tomorrow and wanted to make paper cats and dogs with them. i was wondering if the activity plan was a good idea or if i should’ve thought of something more educational? Also how shall i approach them? Is saying “ Hello everyone. My name is _ _ _. Who wants to make paper cats and dogs? - shows them my examples-“ is that okay?

    When I worked as a TA in a nursery they did these sorts of activities with the kids, it actually is educational for them. If they're using pens, you can keep an eye on the grip they use (Tripod, static tripod, digital pronate, palm), and you're also teaching them scissor skills if you're using those. You can also keep an eye on how they share utensils. Just get them excited to make some! You could ask them if they have cats or dogs at home to get a conversation going and for them to talk about things with you and each other.
