Hello 2A families! Here are a few highlights from this week about each child and a unique interest or moment that we caught! We hope you enjoy these photos as much as we enjoyed experiencing these moments with your children. We truly have the most special class!
Mia is always smiling and ready to invite her friends and teachers into her little world. In this photo, our Spanish teacher had just given Mia a sticker at the end of the class. Mia was so excited about her sticker she put it at the very top of her head and promptly offered her teacher her other sticker!
Every morning upon entering the 2A classroom, Nicholas requests to build "A house!". Nicholas always spends a great deal of time on his magna-tile "houses" and loves to put animals inside of them. Emilio, of course always loves to jump into whatever scenario his classmates are getting into and also had so much fun building animal houses with Nicholas this week! These sort of interests and play skills highlight an emergence into cooperative and dramatic play skills that are essential in toddler development.
Charlotte with her babies! Each and every morning that Charlotte attends school she greets her babies and enjoys carrying them with her (as many babies as she can hold) through her daily routines. Charlotte will sometimes reference her newborn twin siblings as she carries her babies around with her, marking a temperament that is loving, warm, and giving.
Lately, Nina has really enjoyed exploring dramatic play and all of the sartorial items that go along with it! In this photo Nina is putting a "fire out!".
We've noticed that Katerina has developed a passion for music as of late. During circle time, her face always lights up and she sings and plays her instrument with fervor as we sing our daily songs. Katerina has also been greatly enjoying her time in Evan's music class. In this photo she is exploring the marimba!
Dylan loves all sensory materials! We've noticed that he especially loves paint and glue and using it to explore with his hands. Dylan is always ready to jump into new discoveries!
Parker, also has a great love of music. He had the best time exploring the marimba with Evan today and could hardly wait to get his hands on it!
This week we explored Prokofiev's "Peter and the Wolf". The children enjoyed exploring the different animals in the piece. In this photo we were having a little group pow-wow trying to predict what animal would come next (enjoy my look of concern, I was very much into the game as well!).
Morgan really enjoyed being a bird!
Emilio offering his teacher a cup of tea!
Max enjoying cooking this week with his mom! Max enjoyed sampling the chocolate chips from our recipe and working alongside his friend and mother!
“I make cookie!” Jackson also had the most fun baking this week with the ingredients that his family graciously provided, and very much enjoyed working alongside his friends!
