Fun all Week!
We had an excellent Monday! We had our usual time outside. We came in and had our usual circle time. We did lots of counting, talking about vacation and our Toddler vacation board, which we’ve been adding pictures to! We celebrated Ancel’s birthday throughout the day—Colette, his sister, came to visit us during this time! In the afternoon, Ms. Abbey came with our new Yoga teacher, Ms. Heather, who will be visiting us sometimes!
Tuesday, We extended our outside time in order to have a fun bowling time! This tied into our “vacation activities,”—things we can do together to have fun. We each had a turn, and each used our own special strategy to knock down the bowling pins! Rolling, kicking, and throwing were a part of the variety we saw. Each time we knocked down the pins, we practiced cheering on our friends, giving out high fives, and basically just had a fun, fun time together. Yoga with Ms. Vanessa was awesome, of course. We went to outer space, jumped on the moon, and came back again and again for one of our Yoga songs. We became yoga rockets, and at the end, breathed together using our breathing ball.
Wednesday morning started off super great outside. On the way in, we noticed the rain clouds were coming our way, so we stopped for a while to observe the weather. We saw some lightning, heard some thunder, and waited until we felt some sprinkles before we went inside! We had an awesome Show and Tell. We even got to turn out the lights so that Genevieve could show us how her “Pinky” nightlight works. After that, we did some Montessori work and some crafts/artwork. We celebrated Hunter’s early birthday during lunch and Tristan, her brother, came to visit! At nap time, Pinky came around and gave kisses and lights to every one! Ms. Daphne came for Spanish, and we did a fun activity to help us learn the parts of the face in Spanish!
Thursday was bubble making day at the Sprout! The Pre-tot, Toddler, and Primary classes all sat together to watch a grand bubble-making presentation. We talked briefly about what it means to “experiment” and said that it’s how we can test things! We tested 3 different recipes to see which would make the best bubbles! We made bubble wands out of pipe cleaners and used some plastic ones as well! During Spanish in the afternoon, we did puzzles on an Ipad to learn more about our faces!
Friday morning, we made glitter play-dough by mixing glitter and playdough! During circle time, we demonstrated how to use a fishing rod, and then went out for Splash day! We had plastic rods and home-made ones and used them to pretend we were fishing in the water! The theme of the day was camping, and so this, a story, our afternoon snack of vegan S’mores, and a trip to the deck full of tents—all came together for some great camping experiences. It was an excellent week!
