Today Mrs Dallas was back to help out while Adrian and Holly have sickies. The kids enjoyed her being here.
It’s amazing what a kind word can do. One of the little girls was singing and a friend said ” I like you song .” You wouldn’t believe the melody that flowed and the smile that followed. Sometimes if we watch kids ( and listen ) we can learn important life lessons. This one was simple “spread kindness.”
We did our monthly directed drawing today. I should remind you I do these merely because I love them. Sure we talk about shapes and get fine motor practice but more than anything I love seeing the art emerge and the pride the child has.
We have indoor sand. I still hate it. Can you imagine ??? Here’s Ariah trying to help clean it.
While reading a book today I pointed out an illustration and said ” that’s odd to me .” Anisa asked ” what’s odd?” I explained it seemed out of place or not right. The rest of the morning I heard “That’s so odd.” Increasing a child’s vocabulary takes using an expanded vocabulary while in conversation with them
We didn’t go outside again today. The windchill was 27. Yes , the sun was shining and if you stand in it it feels great UNTIL the wind blows and you’re out there for an hour. I’m really over winter.
