Though it was a short week, it was a busy one.  We started off the week exploring clay.  The children poked, pushed, pounded, and created lots of cherry and vanilla flavored lollipops.  Soon we will start conducting clay workshops, introducing the children to a variety of new ways to create.

The children showed a lot of interest in creating with the magna-tiles and dinosaur manipulatives.  Many children created boxes for individual dinosaurs.

The children are still loving the gym.  One organized game we played this week was tossing balls into the net.

For art the children made dots using pom-poms dipped in tempera paint.

The children have been very interested in the block area.  We will soon start conducting block workshops to help the children learn how they can use different blocks to build structures.  This week they were interested in creating seats for the firetrucks.

We celebrated Hunter's 3rd birthday on Monday.  Shari, Hunter's mom, read Press Here.  Angelo then presented Hunter with a picture of Hunter playing with magna-tiles.  We hope you had a wonderful birthday Hunter!

We had our first shared snack on Wednesday.  Aayush brought in strawberries, pretzel sticks, and goldfish crackers.  Thank you Aayush!  

We read Little Red Rosie and also had challah and honey from Joseph to celebrate Rosh Hashanah.  Diane also came in and we tried apples and honey.  Happy New Year to those who celebrate!  Thank you Joseph and Diane!
