This week we welcomed Mila to our Peapod room. Welcome Mila! We are so happy to have you join us. Sadly, our friend Lily is moving to Peapod II. We will miss her but know she will love being with her friends and some new friends. Some of us are getting better with tummy time. We’re even creeping backwards. Some are starting to pull themselves up! Someone is in a hurry to walk! We’ve been practicing waving bye and signing “all done“ and “more please.” We have been busy making decorations for our windows for the upcoming holiday. Miss Emily has been working very hard with us. We have been able to enjoy the few nice days by going on a walk and visiting the play yard. It’s the best part of the day! Our book this week was Five Silly Turkeys by Salena Yoon and our song was “Baa, Baa, Black Sheep.”
Peapods II had another great week! We had so much fun playing in the indoor playground. It’s nice to be able to get our energy out on a rainy day. Our friends had fun coloring our turkeys with dot art markers. They are so colorful and we like to look at them in our windows. The song of the week was “Row Your Boat.” Our book of the week was Split!Splat! by Amy Gibson.
It was a great week in the Little Sprouts. We talked all about farms. We learned what animals live on a farm. We know all the sounds the animals make! We talked about what we can grow on a farm. Our song of the week was, “Old MacDonald Had a Farm,” This week, we spent a lot of time practicing our colors. Some of our friends can name lots of them! We sang “Five Green and Speckled Frogs” with Miss MIchelle from Elephante music and her puppet Freddy.
The Beanstalks have been learning all about trees this week! We began our study on trees by seeing what we already knew about them. We read Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin, Jr. We went outside and collected leaves that had fallen on the playground and talked about what they looked like and why they were all different colors. We used our magnifying glasses to look closely at the leaves and branches in our science center. We made our own trees using play dough and we painted them at the easel! We loved Stretch and Grow and singing and dancing along with Miss Robin!
