Opposites: BIG & little!
Hello infant families,
What a fun filled week it has been in the classroom! Ms. Jenn & I are excited to introduce OpPoSiTeS to the babes as this months theme. We kicked off the week talking about and exploring all things BIG & little! The song for this week was "five little ducks" & our books of the week were "BIG dog, little dog & BIG little things" as we read the books we made sure to express the scale of the mentioned items using our arms and hands; it's a lot of fun to watch the babes react to us as we exaggerate our body movements. Later in the week we had a few new friends come in from each classroom to talk about their size difference, our older friends had a lot of fun talking to the babies and sharing fun stories of when they were as little as them and how fun it is to grow big and strong! All of our little guys and gals were definitely intrigued with all the new faces they got to see. Overall it was an amazing week!
Highlights of the week!
*Adele has recently mastered sitting up all on her own!
*Claire has been getting extra practice with her signing and has recently favored/mastered her milk sign!
*Enzo has mastered sitting for a few weeks already and is currently moving into scooting himself around the floor!
*Fisher has mastered sitting at the table and eating lunch with his friends, he is currently working on rolling over & plenty of tummy time!
*Finnlie has mastered rolling over & the mini push up!
*Austin has been practicing taking his first couple of steps and learning to sit unsupported at the kitchen table!
Please keep in mind that each baby is different and they definitely develop at their own pace; as long as your child continues to gain new skills and shows interest in getting around and exploring his/her environment, there should be no worries. I just really wanted to share some of these exciting milestones with you!
Wishing you a lovely Memorial day weekend!
