Our morning routine has changed just a little bit! Each morning, after washing hands, the boys and girls will come over to the magnet board to find their name. This activity begins with each child finding their face and it also gives us a chance to talk about the letters in their names one on one. The children have really enjoyed looking at everyones pictures. It is a fun addition to the morning!
We took advantage of the little bit of the snow on the ground and brought it inside to play with! The boys and girls had the chance to scoop and pour snow and ice into cups. It was a very fun and cold activity!
This week we were moving our bodies during group time! Ms. Laurel read a story about circles, then the boys and girls were asked to stand on the circle on the floor. The children held hands and sang Ring A Round The Rosie while walking in a circle. It was so much fun!
The toddlers were giving their little fingers a workout with this activity! The boys and girls were given a piece of white chalk to draw lines up and down, circles or scribbles on a black piece of paper. This activity really had their fine motor skills and creativity working!
Our toddlers are so happy to be back! One of the favorite centers for the children to play in the sensory tub. So much fun exploring and creating!
The boys and girls were singing twinkle twinkle little star all day today! We counted the points on a star, found different color stars on the floor and of course sang some star songs!
Today the boys and girls had a chance to get a little messy! Our discovery tubs were filled with shaving cream,red paint, peppermint and candy canes. The children were able to swirl and mix the red paint to make their own candy cane mix! It sure did make the room smell good!
