Opposites: Day & Night!
Greetings, Infant families!
It's been a busy and fun filled week in the classroom. We wrapped up the last of our opposites theme by focusing on day and night. Throughout the week we talked about nocturnal & diurnal animals, we happened to have a few nocturnal puppets and introduced those to the babes! We also talked about the importance of transitions of day and night and the effects it has on many things such as plants, animals etc. We began circle time each day by looking at the moon and stars that are posted up in our naptime area walls, they glow in the dark which made it extra interesting for the babes.
Ms. Toni subbed for Ms. Jenn on Tuesday, it was very exciting to spend a full day with her. The babes and I sure enjoyed having her in the class; she is tons of fun to be around. Ms. Toni put on a great show for our friends during circle time and sang many new songs for us!
We spent the majority of the week prepping for our very special father's day projects. Painting is always a blast for our friends!
*We had plenty of play dates with our primary friends, the babes absolutely love having them come visit! We also took a trip out to the welcome center and had a fantastic circle time on Friday!*
Our book of the week was: The Night Night Book.
Our songs of the week were: twinkle, twinkle little star, Mr. Sun & owl in the oak tree! (Here are the lyrics to owl in the oak tree)
Sung to the tune: “Skip to My Lou”
Owl in the oak tree – big and strong.
Owl in the oak tree – sings his song.
Owl in the oak tree – all night long.
“Who, who, who” – come sing along.
“Who, who, who” – me and you.
“Who, who, who” – what will we do?
“Who, who, who” –all night through.
Singing our song – who, who, who!
(Our older friends loved hooting along during this song!)
Have a great weekend and a very happy father's day to all you awesome dads!

This is cuteness overload!! Babies all drinking their babas together, babies in the pool, babies looking in the mirror, babies sitting together during circle time. Too cute! Amazing that you get them to all stay in the circle!!
