Do you ever have one of those days that you feel like you RAN ALL MORNING ! Today was that kind of day. Whew… Nap time was welcomed today – even though it was late.
You would think that days we serve cereal are actually easy meal prep days but it really isnt. It is a little hectic and there are usually a few spills along the way , but they love it. Then.. Ms Melissa needed to interview me for one of her classes on my teaching style , philosophy and a few questions about multicultural items and experiences they kids have here.
After things calmed down a bit we got to work ( play. )
Dallas took each child and helped them to dye two eggs in the kitchen. We used the koolaide method and well.. I wasnt impressed. I had seen these vibrant colors on pinterest where you can use koolaide instead of egg dye. Im not sure where they got those brilliant colored eggs from but I can tell you it wasnt from the koolaide dye. The eggs did change color to more natural earthy tints but they werent very pretty. Disappointed ! The kids did enjoy the process though and that is what counts !
Downstairs I was doing small groups. We read the nursery rhyme ” Humpty Dumpty” and then we talked about why we thought Humpty fell off the wall. The kids had some really great answers like ” The wall was wet ” or ” a bird pecked him with his beak and made him fall.” We wrote these down and then the kids practiced cutting an egg shape out and drawing a face on their egg. The next step was cutting the egg into pieces like a puzzle ( broken Humpty) and then taping it back together properly.
In circle time today we looked at pictures of many different kinds of rabbits and then read a story about a baby jackrabbit.
Some of our treats at lunch was homemade ambrosia and our dyed eggs !
It seem to finally calm down when the health inspector walked in . Inspections dont really scare me but they are uncomfortable as someone basically judges your personal space. But the good news is I didnt get any write ups !!!
Ty wore a costume for the first time all year ! Yay !
Busy Busy Day.
