Back to school is the most important time of the entire school year. Having a smooth transition from summer vacation to entering a classroom environment, can be difficult for some children. Children will gradually get used to their classroom environment, as they interact and engage in classroom routines and activities.
During the week the children interacted in:
Finger Painting on Canvas
Five Little Monkeys
The Very Hungry Caterpillar
Llama Llama Misses Mama
Pete the Cat, I Love My White Shoes
Go Away Big Green Monster
My Little Teapot
Sing Songs: (sometimes the teachers use musical instruments or hand movements during singing)
Five Little Speckled Frogs (with finger puppets)
Old McDonald Had a Farm (with finger puppets)
Hello how are you- (Good Morning Song- articulating each child's name)
Baa Baa Black Sheep
Twinkle Twinkle Little Star
Itsy Bitsy Spider
Five Little Monkeys Jumping On the Bed
If you’re Happy and You Know It (Clap your Hands)
Where is Thumbkin?
The teacher made some sensory bags using paint. We used one primary color, red and added some white to create a secondary color, pink. The children appeared amazed as they observed the teacher squirt some paint and see the transformation of colors occur in a Ziploc bag. Edith and Harlow immediately wanted to help.
