Squares, Squares Everywhere!
Happy Sunday, Sprout families!
Another wonderful week in the Tulip class. Continuing our February theme of shapes, we focused on squares this week.
Our square-related song was : "If I had a little white box to my _________ in, I'd take him/her out and *kiss kiss kiss* and share him/her with my friend" And we read 2 books about shapes! Next week for triangles, Avey is letting us borrow a few of his books with us!
Monday: President's Day/PDO
On Tuesday we talked about squares to our Tulips during circle time and passed around different sized squares/cubes, some with a color in the middle. During our time outside, we also gave the opportunity for the children to color with the toddler classroom outside on the bench which they really seemed to enjoy.
On Wednesday we got to decorate a big box with stickers! We also reinforced the concept of squares. Repetition, repetition, repetition!
On Thursday we implemented Montesorri box puzzles during our circle time and gave every child the opportunity to try.
During our Spanish lesson with Ms. Daphne we learned a new word, "oso", which is bear in Spanish. Daphne brought in a teddy bear and we practiced giving besos (kisses) and hugs (abrazo). I noticed that all of our tulips loved giving the oso kisses.
Friday was our dance party! (My favorite) We did a community graffiti project where each sprout received a cup of paint, a paint brush and was then set free to leave their artistic mark wherever they pleased around our playground! This was a very fun project that I and our sprouts thoroughly enjoyed.
Next week we're focusing on triangles! Avey is letting us borrow some of his books on triangles so we are really excited to explore them with everyone.
See you all on Monday!

That's such a great community building idea- the graffiti! You guys are so awesome to let them do that. I bet they loved it and will show us every time we go out there. ❤
