Its a Jungle Out There

Today we started a new unit – JUNGLE ANIMALS  ! We started our day by making a list of things we already know about the jungle. One our littles answered very very tall trees and the rest named a few animals – some found in the jungle and some not.  I told them the story […]

The Zebra has Stripes

Today our circle time book was about zebras so we spent our day looking for patterns.  In small groups Ms Dallas played a patterning game.   The kids have been little balls of energy the past few days.  We have tried to get outside atleast 30 minutes so they can work some of that out. […]

Just Hanging Out With the Gorilla

As I watched the kids play outside around noon today I had a blog rolling through my head.  There are toys and loose parts all over our play ground.  Yesterday as I cleaned the last remnants of Christmas off the porch ( don’t judge ) I found a string of pretty gold beads that were […]

Wowzers ! We have been busy today !

What a busy fun day we have had today.  It is five minutes to one and we are just now laid down for rest time.  Why so late you ask ? Our day was pretty normal until 1030. ( Well, with the exception of the gorilla visiting ) After cleaning we went to circle time […]
