MONDAY: We started Monday, greeting friends and parents as they arrived. Miss Arielle arrived, and we cleaned up and got set for circle time. Went around the circle and everyone had a chance to give a quick few sentences about their weekend! lots of birthday parties, fun with mom, dad, and siblings, and more! We broke up into Group for Montessori/group work. Group A: We worked on the newest letter of the week, Bb! brainstormed words, names, and objects that start with the letter, while looking around the classroom pointing certain things out! Group B: Worked on letter B, brainstorming words and watching videos of things that start with Bb! They also went through their Letter B box, which included blocks, and other Bb objects. Kinder Blossom: Started their group with letter Bb as well!
TUESDAY: Today we had a special guest join us, it was Ivy! everyone was so excited she came to spend the day with us, and was excited to show off their primary classroom! Group A: Noah worked with the train tracks, building and rebuilding, making new pathways. While Genevieve explored the sand paper numbers, Kian worked on a botany puzzle, and Jackson worked with the nuts and bolts, screwing on the nuts. Group B: They practiced working with the Big and Small Buttoning frames, taking turns practicing to button and unbutton. They then made their way to the table to create a "Blueberry Field", using blue, white, and green paint! Kinder Blossom: They explored their letter Bb box, adding words to the list as they thought of them! After nap, Ms Vanessa came for some Tuesday yoga! We practiced Warrior 1 pose, and the breathing ball! It went around the circle, and everyone had a chance to breathe in (open) and breathe out (close) which was very exciting for most! We said our goodbyes to Vanessa, and made our way outside!
