Monday in “Structured Pre School”, because as you know, we learn throughout the day as well, we talked about emotions and the many different ones. The two children did coloring pages, which turned into a book and we practiced the faces people might make when they are feeling a certain emotion. We went over “A”, “0” and “BLUE” since that is what we have been working on. The exercise for the day was “Twisting side to side”. Next, we went down back and went Apple Picking, Crabapples that is. “A” is the letter we have been working on so we kept repeating “A-Apple”. At first they were a bit nervous, I think because the apples were harder to pull off the tree then they may have thought. But they both did a great job of picking after they got the hang of it. Once we had had enough of that, we stayed outside and played. I had gotten a new bike and they wanted to try it out. Out came the parachute, which isn’t easy for two little ones. But they jumped on it, fell and laughed on it. Even ended up in a tug-of-war over it. And much more outside fun. When the older kids got off the bus, we headed back down for some more Apple picking.
