Hello Pre-Tot Families! And happy Father's Day weekend to you all.
This week we did things a little different. We noticed how much our pre-tots were interested in sea creatures that we decided to continue our lesson on the subject. We also mixed in a few activities with land/air animals.
On Monday we did something we haven't done in a while- practiced using stamps! We had all different land/air/sea animal stamps that were fun to play with. We also got to color in the morning on the picnic table which is always a popular activity.
On Tuesday we made our Father's Day fish craft. We painted each pre-tot's hand with orange paint to create a fish hand stamp and then used their fingers to create sea weed. The end product had the fish hooked to the pole and read "I'm hooked on daddy" :). The pre-tots always like to get their hands nice and messy so they enjoyed this project.
On Wednesday during circle time we watched a video and listened to some seagulls. We also got to look at some seagulls in one of our circle time books. We passed around some cool seashells that we brought from home and we put them to our ears to listen to the ocean. THe pre-tots were very gentle and took care of our shells. We've noticed that our pre-tots have been more engaged during our circle time and enjoy participating.
On Thursday and Friday we had our special Splash Day! These have been fun for the pre-tots and again they seem more interested in the fun mud puddles than the hose/sprinkler/contraption :)
This week we continued to sing our beloved shark song. We also read more books that our friends brought from home. We read "The Seaside Cat", a Nemo counting book (Finn particularly loved this one), and "Sea Creatures".

They are all getting so big! I can't believe it has happened so fast. Luke has been loving the beach theme, so we are bringing our big conch shell to share this week. Jackie and Magdalen, thank you again for the photos and the daily/weekly updates. I love hearing about all of the fun things y'all are doing.
