All smiles, Max ran the classroom very eager to tell us about the BIG excavator he saw on the way to school. Scarlett and Brandon filled Jenny in on what she missed yesterday when she was not in school. At Morning Meeting, Hudson turned to Scarlett and said, “I love you, Scarlett.” Then Scarlett gave Hudson a very BIG hug. We played instruments and sang Come On and Sing With Me and Old MacDonald Had a Band and a Farm. As we began to sing Who's At Buckle My Shoe Today? Scarlett brought to our attention that their are not any teachers faces on the chart. So we handed her the camera, she and Brandon took a picture of us, and in the mornings now the teachers will "sign-in" too.
Then we stretched our bodies and wiggled our toes as we sang Wake Up Toes. Next, we sang Ring Around the Rosie and pretended to be "cows in the meadow huddled all together" just like in the song. The children worked more on our seahorse by adding fins and a eye. Then they swirled shaving cream, glue, and watercolor with paint brushes. For Free Play, we stretched and rolled flubber and dug in the sandbox. Before lunch, we read Mr. Seahorse by Eric Carle.
