We had a very busy day today. We started off by me tracing each child’s body on a large piece of paper. Each child colored their face and clothes on the body and then I cut them out. They really liked doing that. Next, since we did’t go outside in the cold, cold weather, and while we were waiting for our guest to arrive, we played some active games. We played two body parts songs to go along with the bodies we traced, and made the movements to them “Head, shoulders, knees and toes” and one you may not know “Toe Knee Chest nut” (Tony Chestnut). The kids giggles their way through Tony Chestnut, it is a really funny song. They also ran in circles trying to make themselves dizzy and we played musical chairs etc. The kids saw the magnetic cookie sheets that I had written the alphabet and numbers on, and the magnets next, so we played with those. Our guest, the Librarian, arrived. She had three snow related books for us today and all three kids, “K” JP” and “E” participated and had a great time. She read the books to us as well as us all singing the Alphabet song and Old McDonald. The three kids did a great job. There was one book whose character happened to be named Nancy and her brother Jack (which I have a brother Jack too). “K” was so confused and excited. Each time the name Nancy was read from the book she pointed to me and said “Hey, that’s you!!” or some other comment. It was quite funny. Another great day!!
