Jack and the Bean Stalk

Published on August 26, 2009 under fairy tales

>Today has been hectic. I thought yesterday would be crazy since it was our first day without Mrs. Beth’s help, but it was relatively calm. I am just guessing this is because we had fewer transitions yesterday and more outside play. Today we stayed on schedule! Well… if you count the fact that we were a little more than 20 minutes late getting down for nap. But, we have to keep pecking away at our routine day by day until it gets easier and easier and all falls into place.

Our fairy tale today was Jack and the Beanstalk. I couldnt find my BIG BOOK ( if you saw my resource room you would know wny…) So, we watched a 10 minute video of the story. I like adding other types of media anyway. After that, we places beans in a baggie with a kleenex and water. We talked about how all living things need sun and water to grow. We taped them on the window so the sun can warm the seeds. Hopefully in a few days , they will sprout!

Funny story about Anna today. I was filling out another piece of paperwork that had to be alphabetized and I said ” Anna what is your last name?” ” She replied ” Anna Banana!” I said ” Annnnnaaaa, that isnt your name !” She came back with, ” Yes, it is. That is what my mommy calls me!” Conversations like that make me love my job!

All the kids are happy now and transitioned into their new ” home”.

    Great pics again! I love being able to look on here and see what Danny and the others do during school.. I think it's a great idea! I wish I could do it with Danielle! I seen this morning with Dillion and Jaxson, and it was a great idea! I still can't believe the kids were behaving so well at lunch time either! Looks like they are having great fun! See you tomorrow!

    Well Debbie Sue, I'm so glad day 2 was a success. I know you are working miracles over there but I have to tell you about Nolan. Yesterday when I picked him up we headed to the restaurant. He threw the door open (crown and all) and said, "ME the KING"! Everyone in there died of laughter. He is normally quiet around lots of people….not yesterday. Josh picked Nolie up today and took him for lunch at the restaurant, same idea, full of life, full of personality! He has been hysterical! I know that he is having a great time with you. You can see it in the way he walks. He is beaming. Thank you guys!
