Happy Tuesday everyone!
Welcome to the beginning of the new school year! We are so very excited for the changes that have recently occurred in our classroom. We could not be more proud of the new classroom layout and décor. Cherokee, Magdalen and myself spent a lot of time and consideration picking out every single detail from the rugs to the toys and we couldn't be more excited to share it with our new pre-tot class.
Today was a very exciting morning because it was not only the first day of school for some, but the last day of school for others. We spent the morning outside enjoying the weather and having group snack at the large outside table. We also had a graduation ceremony for Maya and Leina who will be leaving GS to head to kindergarten. We all took part in watching their graduation ceremony and sending them off in style.
For our circle time today we ran through a few songs such as the Good Morning song, the Days of the Week song, the Weather Song, and the counting song all while discussing our fingers and hands. We read the book, “Hands are Not for Hitting” and also peeked inside our numbered baskets to find treasures. We pulled out some hand shakers and played some music together as a class.
For our activity we poured and shook glitter onto a handprint labeled with each child's name on it. Everyone really enjoyed looking at the glitter and touching it with their fingers. I could tell that they were really proud when I hung them up in the art display.
In the afternoon we had yoga with Miss Amelia. Everyone enjoyed trying to sing along and practice the dance moves for the songs. We ended with our usual Namaste song some great big hugs for Miss Amelia.
