It was a crisp day today during morning drop off. We went inside and had snack as normal, but switched up our regular schedule and our older friends went into kinderblossom following snack. The remaining primary class worked in centers and on notebooks. Colette worked on reading hands on a clock while Tristan worked on drawing different kinds of shapes across from her. Miya was concentrating on her fine motor skills with transferring items from one dish to another with various tools. Rhys and Dax went right to the construction area and worked on Legos and sky scrapers. To end our inside exploration most of us headed to our music basket and played different instruments while Colette was the conductor waiving her hands up and down to change the volume all our friends were playing. With the concert winding down we got our shoes on and went outside to expend some energy.
We got some new mock steering wheels installed on our playscape everyone used to drive the "school" around. Maya, Colette, Zoey, and Dax organized a big party again for nicks coming birthday. They made 4 different cakes and gave him presents like the "claw digger" that can be found around the playground. They even sang happy birthday perfectly to him. After the party everyone dispersed and did their own thing until lunch time came around. We headed inside for lunch then nap time.
After everyone was up we started snack, Zoey made a rainbow out of the cucumber we were eating. One by one our friends finished eating and washed their bowls. Some friends still had a lot of energy so Lizzie took everyone who wanted to play on the deck outside while nick stayed in and did art with everyone else. Inside, Miya was coloring and mysteriously her paper was soaking wet while she coloured on it, we got a dry piece of paper for her and soon it happened again. The mystery was solved when we rolled her sleeves up. Miya had gotten her sleeves wet when she washed her hands last.
3:30 came around and it was time for Spanish. Everyone grabbed came inside and grabbed a mat and sat down to sing their favorite songs from miss Leona. Spanish went great and it's always fun to see them act out the songs like in one of our farm animal songs, they pretend to be the animals. Half an hour of Spanish flew by and it was time for outside pick up. We put on our shoes, counted off one by one in our line and headed out the door.
