Happy Friday, Families!
I hope you all have had a wonderful week; we sure have! There has been a lot of love going around, especially today. I feel so grateful to have worked with each of you! Thank you for everything!
This week we have been learning about our community helpers. Our books of the week were “Things that Work” which shows all different professions, and “Little Grownups” which is also about different professions, with pictures of babies dressed up as police officers, firefighters, etc. Luke also shared with us one of his favorite books, “Little Blue Truck Leads the Way,” in which the little blue truck shows the cars and trucks how to work together to get out of a traffic jam in the big city. We sang a lot of our old favorite songs this week, including “I once had a turtle, I named him tiny tim…” and “five little fishies swimming in the sea, teasing Mr. Sharky, can’t catch me! Along comes Mr. Sharky quiet as can be and snaps the fishy right out of the sea…” We played dress-up almost every day and the really children enjoyed using the medical kit and the mail box.
On Monday we focused on firefighters. Luke brought in his fire truck, which he presented to the class. Everyone loved it!
On Tuesday used stamps to decorate envelopes. We also spent a lot of time “mailing” letters in our toy mailbox.
On Wednesday we gathered near the sandbox and made a delicious pizza out of sand, mulch and toy vegetables. We measured the flour, mixed the dough, patted it into the pan, and sprinkled cheese and veggies on top. Then we popped it into the oven and when it was done we sliced it up and served it up. The children really got into this activity, and continued to play cook after we wrapped up the pizza-making.
On Thursday we made cookies with play-dough using a star cookie cutter. We rolled out the play dough and then pressed the star down until it cut out our cookie.
Today (Friday) we have already had a balloon-filled dance party and splash day during which we washed clothes and dishes! This afternoon Rye will show us the medical kit he brought from home!
Have a wonderful weekend! I will miss you all, but will be back to visit soon!

Love the pics of Rye demonstrating all of the tools of his medical kit for his classmates, so fun to see him in this role! What a cool idea to have the kids lead. The photos of them all eating their lunches in their diapers is precious - Collette's expression is awesome.

I totally agree. The lunch pictures were some of my favorites!
