I Can Do It!
Happy Tuesday everyone!
I hope that you all had a wonderful 3 day weekend! Ashley and I were talking about how much we missed our kiddos today. Three days is too long! J We had another fabulous day. We are starting week three since our classroom rotations and I can really see the progress. It’s amazing to see the change that happens in such a short time. For instance, we’ve been working on staying in our seat until we have finished eating our lunches. There has been really great progress in this area. Our friends are doing really well sitting still and also saying “all done” either verbally or showing the sign for it. If you see this happening at home please help out by encouraging this behavior.
Another area of focus in the classroom has been clean up time. We’ve been singing the clean up song regularly, and the kids really like it. They immediately know what to do when they hear us start singing. It’s really nice to see that light bulb go off in their head and they start grabbing toys to put in the basket and books to put on the shelf.
This week we are talking about action/motion. We introduced two new songs for circle time. One song is Five Little Monkeys, and the other song is from Eric Carle’s book “I Can Do It”. If you know these, or even have the book, please share them with your child regularly. This will help tie the school and home environment together.
For our sensory project today we did some arts and crafts. I brought out hand-shaped foam cutouts for the kids to paste colored felt balls on. They really enjoyed using the glue stick! I think it was their favorite part. In the afternoon we did yoga with Abbey. Everyone is getting better at putting their hands together and humming the Ohm. I really let them know in advance when we are having yoga by saying Abbey’s name a lot and practicing our downward dogs, so if you hear them repeat Abbey at home, that’s why.. hah.
We recently had a kiddo go home today with the stomach bug, so let’s try and stay healthy! Everyone have a wonderful Wednesday.
