Today started off with a change up, with Toni on vacation Dom stepped into the office to take care of business. Having just four kids in the primary class Lizzie stepped into the toddler room to fill Dom's spot. With just the four girls we disregarded our normal seating and sat together. While eating our apples and bananas Leina wanted to play a game of "I spy". After a few rounds it began to get silly as Colette's video will show. We spent the whole snack time visiting and talking about what we did last night and things we ate this morning. Once our allotted time was up we had a great circle time and talked about thanksgiving and things we traditionally do on the holiday.
We headed into stations after circle and Colette and Paige made a bee line to the water mixing activity. Three colours are in jars with one empty bowl, the idea of the activity is to mix colors to make new ones. Colette discovered mixing yellow and red yields orange. Paige followed suit and the two of them mixed colours for the next ten minutes. While Paige and Colette were busy with the rainbow, Leina and Zoey were busy in the art center. Leina was using a pair of scissors that cut paper with a wavy boarder that soon became the standard in paper cutting. In the middle of work time we had a fire drill and talked about the importance of knowing what to do incase of a real fire. We all left our work and put our shoes and coats on and headed outside to the parking lot to join the rest of Greensprout for the fire drill. Once everyone was checked off we went inside to clean up our work then out to the back yard for some play.
Coming in we washed hands and had lunch then a quick story and went into the toddler room for nap.
Following nap, Leina and Zoey headed for kinder blossom with Ariel while Colette and Paige stayed with nick and made turkeys with our hands. With just the two of them we were able to get more technical with our hand turkeys by using multiple colours for the bird. We used trial by error in getting the layers just right and now Colette and Paige said they would be happy to help their friends tomorrow with making their own. Once Leina and Zoey were back from kinderblossom we had snack then headed to the math center to work on our number skills. We started with a tactile exercise that helped with motor skills that required the use of tweezers to fill trays with the correct number of beads. After a bit of counting everyone wanted to do some more art to fill out the rest of our inside time. Finishing pictures for mom and dad, all five of us headed outside for pickup time.
