We having be learning the letter “A” (Apple, Acorn, Ant). We have been learning the color “Blue” The shape of a “Circle” as well as tracing dots to make a line. A daily exercise, fine motor skill practice, adding beads to a string, and so much more. Keep in mind these children are starting pre-school at two years old, not three when most kids start. They are getting a great start, and they do their very best, while having fun. They love, love, love making the craft that come with the curriculum, as well as ones I create. This is one of the most rewarding occupations when you watch children grown and learn before your eye.

Today the 5 of us played in the Daycare room during the first part of the morning as it was pretty cold out. CS did his first finger painting, and I did or attempted to do his finger prints. We had some reading time, pre-school learning and lots of time for playing and fun. The two 4 year olds worked very hard on some learning skills, counting, adding, shapes, matching pictures with the “first” letter sound, mazes and more and they did very well. Once it got a bit warmer we headed out, and the fun continued. The kids rode bikes while I pushed the two little ones in the jogger. They did quite a bit of bouncing in the bounce house, chased bubbles and more. Once the School kids arrived they also played in the bounce house, the sand box AND my daughter helped make a “fort” for them to hide in. They thought that was pretty great. Another great day. Enjoy the photos.
