Toddlers learn through imitation – a key play skill within toddler development is imitating what they see within their environment. They may be putting their baby dolls to bed, “helping” sweep up the kitchen, or perhaps cooking. As we’re moving into October and the children are settling into their environment we seen a very noticeable shift into the realm of dramatic play. In this photo Parker was explaining to us that he was making “pink pizza”!
Nina and Katerina making "breakfast" for their babies.
"Brr, cold!" - Nina
Emilio noticed Nina cuddled up under the pillows (one of her favorite cozy spots). Emilio sauntered up to Nina, gave her a kiss (unfortunately he was too quick for our camera to capture the moment!), closed his eyes and said “night, night!” with a giggle. Emilio’s personality always has a hint of humor and a lot of love.
More language development with Michelle, our new Spanish teacher. Everyone has been quick to warm up to her warm personality and demeanor - and our student's love of learning is quite evident!
Apple picking with the BMS community! This field trip was a really wonderful opportunity to not only participate in a nature exploration with our class - but our entire school. Community is a vital component to our students’ development at BMS and we were so thrilled share such a joyful experience with our school!
