Happy New Year and welcome back to school after such a long break! It is amazing to see how much the children have grown. Max, Brandon, and Scarlett were all smiles as they settled into the morning routine. We started our day reading Goodnight Gorilla and then sang Who's At Buckle My Shoe Today?. At snack, we shared what we did over break.
Scarlett- "I stayed with my grandpa. I build a house for a bear, a dog, and a mouse."
Max- "Max went into a car."
Brandon- "I throw a ball."
The children worked with soft textured materials ( cotton balls in the sensory table and collaged with feathers and poms poms.) During Free Play, Scarlett and Brandon built with magnet tiles in the Daisies' classroom while Max played at the sensory table with the cotton balls. "It's snow!" he giggled as he scooped it into the dump truck. Then Brandon, Scarlett, and Max built invidual structures in the block center. Before lunch, we sang 3 Green and Speckled Frogs as a transition to wash hands. We concluded the day by reading Knuffle Bunny by Mo Willems.
