Today we talked about our eyes. The kids cut out eyes to make a collage. Cutting is still very difficult for some of my kiddos. If you are a mommy and you are reading this… some cutting experiences at home would be great ! Whitlee was excited that she found a HUGE eye !
I had planned a fun day tomorrow with some things as a review for our five senses but since it looks like it will snow.. we did some of them today. Yes. moms, this little horn will be coming home with your child. You too.. can enjoy the sense of hearing.
Since we were doing sight today we couldnt resist pulling ” Brown Bear Brown Bear ” out again. We have a song that goes with it and it is one of the kids FAVORITES!
We made a graph of eye colors! We played the game where you try to remember what was on the tray and then the teacher takes something away. Good practice for the eyes and the brain! We used our eyes to figure out what the picture was as we took away one post it note at a time ! We played BROWN BEAR BINGO using our eyes… and reviewing our colors ! This is a shadow game from brown bear ! Clara enjoying one of the Honduran dresses that Rosanna’s mom brought. Another Brown Bear game… matching the letter tiles to the color words .
We did have a fun day.
Anna’s mom called to say that she watched weather.com and it looks like the ” ice storm will hit around 1:30″. I then told Randy what she had said. When Anna’s mom arrived early to pick up Anna Bianca says ” when are we gonna get hit by ice.” It took me a while to process why she said that… She had over heard my conversation. Children are so literal. 🙂
Tomorrow, if it ices and schools are closed, please call ahead to see if anyone is here IF you NEED to get out. Playing here is more fun if there are more friends.
Enjoy our favorite version of ” The Hokey Pokey “.
It sounds like you had a full day. The girls seem to be in a habit of emptying and cleaning the playhouse lately. Not sure what is up with that but it works! Randy and I are finished with another full day of training. Randy even won a $100 gift card to Play with a Purpose. I think we will use it to get a mini stationary bike for the kids.. it is so cool. I have been looking at it for a while. You know the BEST part of these conferences? You learn a few new things but you mainly get your spark back and come back renewed. Kids are you ready ? We will be back on MOnday!
Oh they're ready…trust me!
Sounds like such a fun day of school.
