Hello pre-tot families! I hope everyone is having a wonderful Thursday. Today we welcomed back Wynn and Gage! We were all so happy to see them once again. Wynn has been out due to an illness for several days, but he is back and ready for some play time with all of his friends who missed him. Gage came back from a trip to Dallas and was a little timid at first, but after a short while he was up and playing as if he’d been here all along.
It has been such a beautiful and glorious morning and the weather was perfect so we decided to have our snack outside, picnic style! This morning was so beautiful that we spent the entire morning outside. Ancel spent some time playing in the sandbox and pouring sand out of a measuring cup. Wynn spent some time playing on the large playscape and walking up and down the ramp. Little Miss Clara also gave Wynn some hugs; I think she missed him a lot. Olive was getting some love from Miss Dom and then joined me in reading a book titled “The Birthday Box.” I asked her to point to the letter “O” and she did. Sophie spent time exploring the entire playground. She was all over the place running from one end of the playground to another.
Shortly after, we all sat down to listen to Miss Jackie read a story titled “This is the Baby.” Then all of our kiddos dispersed and enjoyed some more free-play. Time seemed to be flying by because it wasn’t too long before we all had to head in for lunch and get ready for nap.
During lunch we sang the “Days of the Week” song and went over the date since we didn’t get to do it during snack like we normally do. We also showed the kiddos pictures of horses because we are learning about them for today and tomorrow. After lunch we helped our kiddos make colored ice cubes for tomorrow. We helped each of them drop one drop of food coloring into each of the little slots in the ice tray. Then we helped them pour water into each slot.
After nap we will be spending some time with Miss Leona who will be teaching us Spanish and singing songs in Spanish. Then we will enjoy some play time inside and then get ready to head out.
Tomorrow we will continue to learn about horses and the sounds they make, and glue some yarn onto paper for our art.
***Also, Miss Jackie will be having a music session with our class for 15 minutes, and would like it if all the kids brought in a musical instrument of any sort for tomorrow. (It could be anything it doesn’t have to be an actual instrument)
