Right after breakfast we went outside because I thought it may rain. It did not. Oh well! They had fun anyhow, I do not think they care when they go outside as long as they get to. We did chalk on the porch and got out the bubbles and pom poms. Whitlee drew a stick figure of me and said “Look! It’s you!” I commented that I liked it because I looked so skinny. Next thing I knew, she was showing me “the belly” she had added to it…hmph. Next time I will keep my comments to myself I suppose!
We continued our study of frogs todayl. Adam brought two frog books from home and we enjoyed reading them in circle time. One of them was “5 Green and Speckled Frogs” and they of course had fun singing that song. The other one was Frog and Toad are Friends. We read one of the stories in it during circle time and will read at least one more after nap time.
We also worked on phonological awareness about the letter /C/. It was a slow concept to introduce, but they caught on really easily and did really well with it after a short time. We also focused on rhyming words and selecting the word of a group that does not rhyme. We will do this again before the end of the week with the letter /F/
After circle time we leaped like frogs and graphed our distance. I tried really hard not to let it be a competition… Let’s just say they all ended up going twice to try to out-leap the next person, and we are doing it again this afternoon. Like I said…NOT a competition.
