We had a special guest today. His name is Hank, and he is a three year old who dropped in for a play date. After drop off he met us inside for snack.
During circle time we talked about MLK and why we have a day dedicated to him. After circle time we jumped right into art where we drew pictures of dream clouds to celebrate MLKs dream. Everyone wanted to play some music like we did yesterday during our art project, so we played Colette's favorite new band, Cheese.
Once everyone had cleaned their paintbrushes and put their smocks away we open up the room to centers which we haven't done in a few days. Our new friend Hank went strait for the cars like our buddies Rhys and Joey always do first.
Once our inside time was over we went out back and everyone helped nick organize the backyard with hooks drilled into the fence where we put our new shovels and rakes.
Nobody wanted to go inside but we needed to have lunch. Following lunch, our transition to nap was a little different than normal. This time everyone sat on their nap mats in the dark and we read a story where they could not see the pictures but had to use their imagination instead. This was a big hit and after the story they seemed satisfied and promptly went to sleep. Upon waking up we had a visit by miss Toni for awhile with one of her babies who needed a change of scenery. Rhys is very good with the babies and is very gentle and intrigued by them. Sometimes if he can't fall asleep right away during nap he will go help in the baby room. We talked with miss Toni for awhile during snack time. We gave the class two options for the remaining 20 minutes, work inside or on the deck. The majority of the class elected to go outside , Jasper however was quite content reading a book on the couch and checking on little dragon every few minutes. Since we spent the majority of the morning inside we thought the deck would be a good idea for just the primary class to run off some steam before joining the rest of the school in the back yard.
Once we got in the back very one bee lined it to the sandbox. The power of new sand has been quite surprising.
