Today we did not work in “K”s workbook (not that we do every day anyway) but I decided to take her and the baby to the Baxter Memorial Library for Pre school reading and activities. Both kids had lots of fun. The baby crawled everywhere and “K” participated in the reading, singing, body movement and craft with the other Pre School children that are brought there. She really worked on her Social skills, which is very important at her age, as all or most of you know. Today’s books were about Lions, so the craft was a Lion hand puppet. We also played with some toys, read some books ourselves and played with the dolls (babies). And, today was a special treat, they had a sort of scavenger treat. You had to find the poster 1 – 12 and do what the poster said on it. For example, “Roar as loud as you can”, “Stretch on your tippie toes and stretch, but do not fall over”, “Find the Lion’s paw prints”, “Find certain books and dust them”and so on. When we arrived back at Daycare we played outside for a bit. The fresh air was good and it really didn’t feel that cold out. When “J” and “A” arrived from school we had some more fun in the playroom. They were princesses, cooks, readers, spinners and more. Another great day! Enjoy the pictures.
When we first went outside I had a song in my head that I knew as a child. I ended up singing it and the girls loved it. They kept asking me to sing it again and again and to teach them. So I decided that we would sing a bunch of songs and see how far we got as far as learning them. By the way, the song that was in my head was “Little Bunny foo foo” you will see them learning it at the picnic table. Also, Head, shoulders, knees and toes was another you will notice as they were on the grass. Once we did songs for about 45 minutes it was free fun play time. And fun they all had. Riding bikes/cars, swinging, sandbox, Playhouse, kitchen etc, etc. And look who is on the BIG swing, “M”!! Not for too long as you can see he showed me that he wanted to get in the smaller swing, which I moved him to. Lunch and back outside. Then in for naps. I somehow took 91 pictures so I need to weed some out before I post them (Then I will post more than I planned to anyway) there are just so many cute ones..
