The school seemed deserted walking into the primary room and finding no one. Searching the whole school it seemed that Thursday started off for everyone in the pre-tot room. Leina and Colette played with the pre-tots rocking horse and made up an imaginary world with all the different animals around the room. We stayed here until our snack time began just after nine. Once back in our room Caden and Paige joins us. It was a very long snack, after some of the emotions of getting dropped off had settled down all of our friends were quite content chatting with each other and some of them competing for Caden's attention. Our friends finished snack one by one, and went over to nick to work on an ornament to give their parents for the holidays. Once they finished their ornaments they were free to explore some of the new things around the room. Caden was excited to see how the room had changed since he left in October. Paige and Caden hung out on the couch for awhile catching up while Jasper and Rhys quickly adopted the toy Caden had just abandoned. With their energy in the class room increasing we took them outside to explore the backyard before lunch. It was windy once we got out there but it did not seem to bother any of our friends. With some energy expended, it was time for lunch. We had a quite start to lunch because everyone was too busy eating to talk. With half of our lunch time expired, the conversation around the table began. All the girls wanted to switch seats and sit next to Caden and show him their new water bottles ( even though they weren't new).
Lizzie read a story after lunch and then we all laid down for nap.
After waking up from nap Paige has a surprise for everyone, she had brought a loaf of bread from wheatsville and shared it with everyone for snack. With some hummus and bread in our tummies we came to the big carpet to play a game. Our game was to move from one mat to another as a specific animal. We hopped like kangaroos, crawled like bears, and even swam like fish to different mats.
After a few games to spark their imagination, it was time for Spanish. Leona let the class in a welcome song, then they played a game of bingo. She had them captivated with Spanish for thirty minutes then it was time to go outside for our pick up time.
