The children eased into their morning eating snack while the teachers read Nothing Stick Likes A Shadow by Ann Lampert. Then we sat down for Morning Meeting. Lili took Bear Shadow by Frank Asch off the bookshelf. She pretended to be the teacher and "read" to her friends while they sat and listened. Then we sang, shook our instruments, moved our bodies, and hummed our hums to Come On and Sing With Me. Next, we greeted our friends by shaking each other's hands and saying "Good Morning."
When Evan entered the classroom for Music, Harry greeted him by saying "Evan, it's so great to see you! We haven't seen you in such a long time. Can we sing Wake Up very quietly?" And so we did. Then we sang The Wheels On the Bus and Evan showed us his "magic wish spinner." We sang Happy Birthday to Evan. It's his birthday on Thursday!
Then we drew together with markers and played in the sandbox. Today we had Yoga with Lakshmi. Because of parent teacher conferences on Friday we have Yoga twice this week!
