What a busy morning we had ! The children greeted one another as they entered the classroom and invited each other to play. "Hi Lili! Sit next to me!" Scarlett said to Lili as she walked to the table. Harry, Lili, and Scarlett cut paper with scissors while Jamie drew with a yellow marker. At Morning Meeting, we read The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything by Linda Williams. We talked about how Jenny and Rebecca were going to act the story for all the children and the Sweet Peas class were going to be a part of the audience.
During Free Play, Harry and Jamie painted with watercolor while Scarlett, Lili, Nico, and Brandon played doctor and also played with Scarlett's dog "Army". Next, we had Yoga with Lakshmi. The children enjoyed making poses as they sang songs with her.
Then it was time to watch the BMS production of The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything by Linda Williams in the Sunflowers' classroom. The children watched with excitement while Sandra narrated the story, Rebecca moved around the different props, and as Jenny pretended to be "The Little Old Lady".
During our Reflective Meeting, we asked the children what they liked about the Halloween parade. Here is what they said:
"I be a green grape." - Harry
"I was a cupcake. I liked marching around like a cupcake. My mommy came with make-up sticking on." - Nico
"Good." - Lili
"Mommy came!" - Brandon
"Fun!" - Jamie
"I be a lollipop!" - Scarlett
We concluded our morning singing There's A Spider On the Floor with spiders as props.
