First….HAPPY BIRTHDAY MARNI and EDITH! We loved getting to celebrate the big 2 years old with them and their friends! We can’t believe they’re 2!
This week we focused on the weather; rain, shine, hot, cold, windy, snow, you name it!
We started the week with some birthday treats and a book from our friend Marni! After we had those delicious snacks, the kids got to do some water play in the perfectly hot weather. The kids are still enjoying dumping buckets of water on their heads. After some water play we talked about rain. We read the book Rain Feet and made some mosaic rain drops for our cloud. We talked about how rain comes out of full clouds.
On Tuesday we read Noah’s Ark after. After we read the book we played in our water bins with boats, animals, clouds, and “lightning bolts” to experience the storm that Noah traveled through. On a sad note, we had to say goodbye to our aide Ms. Ella. She’s going to college and we are going to miss her so much!
Wednesday, we got to have music in the Big Room! After music the kids went outside and had more water play. We also read One Sunny Day, and they made shining suns with dot dots.
On Thursday, we got to celebrate our friend Edith’s birthday with more treats and another book!
When we came back from the Big Room we read Rain. Then we talked about how after there’s some rain comes a beautiful rainbow! The kids each had their own bag of paint with the colors of the rainbow and used their hands to mix it all together.
On Friday, we plan to celebrate Shabbat once again. After we bring in the Sabbath, we will read The Magic Weather Show. The kids will get to write and scribble on the table in shaving cream!
We hope you have a great weekend, Shabbat Shalom!
Ms. Alyssa & Ms. Hannah
