Hello pre-tot families! It has been a wonderful morning with all of our little guys. We began our morning outside with all of our school friends with some free-play. Gage was being entertained by one of our loving toddlers, Paislie, who is always super fascinated with him. Noah spent some time playing with a slightly deflated beach ball. Mr. Kenny, one of our subs, kept trying to blow it up for him but it must have had a hole because it kept deflating every time. Sophie found some wheels to a toy truck and walked around the entire playground with them in her hands. Ancel spent some time in the sand box and on the playscape going down the slide. Some of our kiddos also got to play with some dirt that was placed in the sensory tub.
After playing outside for a little while it was time for all of us to head in for snack and circle time. During snack we sang our “Days of the Week” song and counted the number of days we are up to in November. During circle time we all sat in a circle and looked at pictures and books of horses. We also made the sound a horse makes and did the sign for horse which we learned from Olive’s mom; Thank You! Afterwards, we all headed out to the deck for some free-play as well as story time.
Hunter brought in a book to share with us about farm animals. The book was titled “Poke-A-Dot! Old McDonald’s Farm.” The book has the words to “Old McDonald” and is also a counting book where you can press little dots when you count each animal. We also looked at other books titled “Animal Sounds” and “Farm Friends.” Later we were joined by our awesome teacher Miss Lizzie, who filled in for Miss Arielle while she did Kinder Blossom. Soon after it was time for us to head back in for lunch and nap.
We are continuing to teach our kiddos how to stay in their seat while they are eating as well as letting us know when they are all done with a hand gesture. They are all doing a fantastic job! We are also continuing to teach them how to clean up after themselves after playing with the toys or books.
After nap, we will be joined by Miss Jackie from the toddler room who will come and sing songs with us with her guitar. We will all join in with her as all of our kiddos will have an instrument that they each brought from home. I will attempt to record this and hopefully put it on the blog, however, I apologize in advance if I am unable to.
I hope everyone has a happy and safe weekend, and we will see you guys on Monday!
