Hey guys! So we started off the morning in the backyard, and were joined by all of our pre-tot friends except for Sophie, who is visiting family in Boston for the week. Ancel spent some time playing in the sand box and pouring sand in one of the buckets. Olive spent some time observing one of the flowers that was growing in one of our gardens. We also were joined by our newest full-time member, Gage, who has just transferred from the infant room. Gage also observed the flowers that Olive was looking at this morning; he has been having such an awesome day!
After a while it was time to head in for snack and circle time. During circle time we all sang the “Hello,’ song, and “The Itsy Bitsy Spider,” then we looked at triangle shapes that were in books and triangle shaped objects we had found in the room. Then we all headed out to the deck where we began working on our art project. We had all the kids glue sand onto a triangle shaped piece of paper. They all seemed to really enjoy this art activity. Clara and Noah loved squishing the sand between their hands and then throwing it onto their paper. Wynn mostly wanted to touch the glue rub it on the paper, but he did manage to put sand on it still, lol. Once we were finished with our activity, all of our kiddos enjoyed some free play. Clara spent some time riding around on the little purple dragon. Gage and Ancel pushed around some of the push cars we have out on the deck. Shortly after, Clara pushed Ancel around on the little red fire truck. Then we had a game of tag and all the kids tried to catch me; Ancel is really fast!
Then it was time to go in for lunch and get ready for nap. In the afternoon, we will read “Elusive Moose,” and “Owen & Mzee A Day Together.” Later, we will sing songs like, “The wheels on The Bus,” “Little White Box,” and “Zoom Zoom.”
Tomorrow we will be introducing heart shapes and for art we are going to glue foam hearts onto heart shaped pieces of paper.
Also, I am trying to figure out how to put videos that I take with my phone onto the blog, but I’m still learning how my phone works so it’s taking a while. If anyone has any experience with this, please let me know. Thanks!
