Tzahov Room צהוב (Infants)

Happy November Tzahov families! With a new month comes a new theme.  This month we are focusing on our bodies, senses, and emotions; one sub topic each week.  

When the babies arrived this week,  they noticed new baby dolls on the classroom “theme shelf.” We have been using baby dolls all week to help teach body parts. You may also see the babes giving hugs and kisses to the dolls; it’s quite adorable!! In addition, Mr. Potato Heads were set out to explore. Mr. Potato Head is not a developmentally age appropriate toy for all the babes, but for the older babes in the class, it definitely was fun to fit the pieces in the holes. We have been utilizing our giant mirrors and giant facial feature pictures in the classroom to point out each baby’s eyes, ears, nose, and mouth.  The littles love looking at themselves in the mirror!!

New songs were posted and practiced all week. See the pictures below for the lyrics. New books were also set out including Eric Carle’s From Head to Toe, Dr.Seuss’s The Nose Book and The Foot Book. The babies also really love Hand, Hand, Fingers, Thumb by Al Perkins and Horns to Toes and In-between by Sandra Boynton. 

Make sure to look at the babies beautiful paper doll art hanging in the hallway.  They had a lot of fun squishing the paint everywhere. The younger babes even got into the action by spreading the paint in plastic bags, keeping them a lot cleaner than their friends who got paint everywhere. No worries though, getting messy is all a part of the project. 

We were able to go on a walk on Tuesday this week when the weather was brisk, but the sun was shining. Taking walks outside are such day makers!

Next week we will teach about our five senses. We will also celebrate a special birthday with one of our friends!!

We hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Warmly, Miss Heidi and Miss Sarah
