The children were active and focused today.  Brains need a combination of novelty and repetition to build upon existing skills and it seems that we had a particularly nice combination of both these aspects in the classroom today.  This is why we paint on different surfaces (like mirrors), or we'll take a little break from a material (like we did with clay).  

  • Circle Time- Greetings and names, singing with Rhythm sticks
  • Gym- playing with light and movement
  • Art/Sensory play- painting on mirrors, working with clay
  • Specialist- classical music with Isabella
  • Reading- "Max Found Two Sticks," "Squeak, Rumble, Whomp! Whomp! Whomp!: A Sonic Adventure," "Jazz Babies," "Music Class Today"
  • Math/Science- exploring light, building with blocks
