We are all so happy the beginning of November has brought warm weather and we were able to go outside. Walks outside were enjoyed by babies and teachers alike.
The beginning of November has also brought a new theme of ABC and 123. The room had a small makeover to enhance our theme. New number posters were placed around the room and our family board was updated. A fun bath tub was taped to the floor as well. They all offer opportunities for us to count. In our classroom you could hear the teachers singing, “One little, two little, three little…fill in the blank. Us teachers are usually heard singing about duckies, bubbles or little turkeys.
In addition to our updates in the classroom, new books and songs have been introduced to reflect our theme. Some titles include, “Five Silly Monkeys”, “The Very Hungry Caterpillar”, and “Goodnight Moon 123”. The babes love to snuggle up with a teacher and look at the pages up close. Some songs we have sung this week are “Alice the Camel”, a cute song about counting the humps on a camel. Go, Alice go! Hickory Dickory Dock is another fun counting song. In our class, the mouse is not the only one running up and down the clock. Its fun replace the mouse with other names of animals or people.
Next week, we look forward to a painting project for Thanksgiving, as well as more songs and books.
We hope you all have a healthy weekend and we hope to see everyone next week!
Warmly, Miss Heidi, Miss Sarah and Miss Lauren
