Training Our Eyes - Vision

Hi to all our Head Start families and friends. What a busy week at our Head Start Headquarters this week. This week we have been “looking” at our vision. 

Why do we have a session on vision?  Well.......Our eyes work together to send visual information to the brain. Like the muscles of our bodies, the muscles of the eyes need to be worked to develop.
When your child’s eyes are controlled without effort their attention is available for visual concentration such as following words on a page when reading and following moving objects when participating in games and sports.
So this has meant we have been watching the balls go down the ramp, over the roller coaster, through the maze, hitting balls as they come out the ball maze.  We have been watching bubbles float by and feathers and balloon helicopters fall softly to the ground and some of our children tried to balance a marble in the middle of a maze (it was pretty difficult).  We also had a cave with torches with rocket ships and planets on them to follow in the dark and spot the toys hidden in the cave.
Hopefully everyone has received their copy of the Head Start Term 4 Newsletter.  If you have missed this then please let us know and we will forward a copy to you, or you can pick up a hard copy next time you are in.
Have a great weekend all. We'll be "looking" out for you next week
From the Head Start Team
