Welcome to fall session Tzahov Families!
First and foremost we are excited to welcome Ellie C. and Marni to our family of friends. We are looking forward to getting to know the babes and families even more.
Each month we focus on a new theme. This month our theme is animals. We have had a lot of fun exploring the animals in different modes of play, such as with chunky peg and animal shaped puzzles. The babes also enjoy interacting with the Little People farm house and small animals. The babes think it’s so amusing when the teachers mimic the animal sounds. Many animal books have been placed out and are available for the babies to explore. Titles include “Oink, Moo, Meow”, a book that includes many animals and their sounds. Another title is “Fifteen Animals” by Sandra Boynton. This book is a funny story about fourteen animals named Bob and one turtle with a surprise name at the end.
During circle time, we have energetic new songs about animals. Please see the attached picture for the lyrics so you can sing the songs at home. Thank you to those of you who sent in pet pictures. All of the babes benefit from looking at the photos during circle time as we talk about our pets at home. The babes truly enjoy shaking musical instruments and banging on drums during music time, some of which are new instruments generously donated through a grant.
We have some new teachers in the Tzahov room. You may see different faces as you scroll through pictures. We appreciate all of their help.
Next week we are looking forward to a special animal themed art project. Be sure to check out the blog next week for most likely messy babes in photos.
We hope you all have relaxing weekend.
