Constuctive play!

The little one in pink was picking out all the red ones.The yellow one she has in her hand here went back into the box. When she got done playing she had a big pile of only red.

Playing "Musical Shapes".

"Green circle!" "Red heart!" "Orange square!"
These worksheets involved following instructions, identifying shape and color/big and little and gluing.

3-5 year olds did these worksheets. They identified the letter, practiced the sound then picked out the picture in each line that with the correct beginning sound.

Holding hands...

Best friends. (and sometimes worst enemies!)

Taking a plane ride.
"What are you doing?"
"I dun know! Just sittin top my caw."

"Iss rainin!"
It started raining when we were outside this morning so she grabbed a container and tried catching the raindrops.
Breakfast- Chopped Beef Gravy on Toast, Cereal, Bananas, Milk
Lunch- Popcorn Chicked, Fried Potatoes w/Gravy, Corn, Butter Bread, Milk
Snack- Wheat Thins or Cheese Crackers, Tropical Passion Fruit Juice
Today was a usual day. We started our morning with a game called "Musical Shapes". I put different shapes down in a circle on the floor and turned on the music. The children walked around the shapes till the music stopped then as I asked each one they would tell me which shape they stopped at.
The 2-3 year olds did following instructions ("find the big blue square"), identifying shapes colors and sizes, and gluing. The 4-5 year olds practiced scissor skills,following instructions, identifying shapes, colors and sizes and gluing.
At storytime we sang "Good Morning" "This is the Day" "There Are Seven Days " "Apples and Bananas" and "We'll All Join In the Circle". We read "Scamp" and "Brendon Bear and the Wild Animals" then did the "Five Little Monkeys Hanging From a Tree" fingerplay.
