First Full Week Blog!
Greetings Pre-tot Fams!!!
We have had such an amazing and exciting week here at the sprout. We had our newest member, Luke, join our class this week and he will be coming every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday just like our friend Julia!
This week we focused on our eyes and did several activities in which our friends learned to recognize when they are using this particular sense along with other senses in whih we have already learned about.
On Monday I cut out big circles and our little tulips pasted 8 googly eyes on them. Then afterwards I punched 8 holes in the circles and put pipe cleaners to make 8 crazy legs; end result, SILLY SPIDERS!!! For this particular activity our kiddos not only had to utilize their eyes to see where they were placing the googly eyes, but they also had to utilize their fine motor skills to pick up each googly eye and plaste it onto the paper.
On Tuesday miss Sandy did an activity where she made the room dark and placed my phone somewhere in the room where our kiddos could see the light blink on as she called it. We also had the volume on so that they could listen and see where the phone was located.
Wednesday was a lot of fun!!! We had a light show display for our little tulips! Miss Magdalen turned off all the lights and made it real dark and brought in some disco lights. Our little guys and gal were awed when they saw the lights shine throughout the room. Each got a chance to hold the lights and really observe it.
Thursday we practiced our hand and EYE coordination. We went outside and sat our little tulips in a circle and rolled a big blue bouncy ball to each other. Each kiddo took turns rolling the ball to each other and even bounced it a few times. We all had so much fun rolling the ball back and forth.
Hurray for fun fun Friday! Today we spent most of our time outside enjoying some music and socializing with all of our friends from other classes. We still stuck to our usual routine where we transition inside and do snack and circle time, but right after we all headed back outside for some more outdoors exploration.
I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend and we'll see y'all on Monday!
