What we did today:

Block Area: We banged blocks together and on the floor. We also had fun taking them off the shelf and putting them back.

Manipulatives: We played with our Lego. Aubree took all our apples out of their bowl one by one and said “here’s an apple” for each one, then Greyson dumped them on the floor and watched them roll. Then we tried tasting them, oh no, they’re just pretend.

Housekeeping: We cooked cheese, apples, keys and babies, oh my! We put on babies in their highchair and feed them dinner from a frying pan. We hid under the stairs and played peek-a-boo.

Infant/Toddler Room Activity: We practiced crawling and pulling ourselves up. We dumped out the toy bins and rattled anything that might make noises. We danced to music and spent a while rolling a ball around. We played peek-a-boo. We got out our rock and stack, We love the top one best of all since it rattles, but we had fun throwing and teething on all of them (no stacking got done.)

At Morning Meeting: We sang the finger family song and “If You’re Happy and You Know It.”

Project: We helped sort new books to add to our library. We had a good time looking through them to see what they were about.

For Breakfast We Had: Malt o’meal warm cereal, bananas and milk.

For Snack We Had: crackers and juice.

For Lunch We Had: rice and beans, taco meat, eggplant and milk. We had nap time from 1:00 to 3:00

What we did today:

Manipulatives: We built trains with our legos and sorted and counted our apples.

Housekeeping: We took care of our babies and made food for each other. We made beans and tacos, and served them on plates. We were very impressed that the taco could stand up on it’s own.

Infant/Toddler Room Activity: We tried standing on our blocks but they were very squishy. We climbed our mats and moved them all over. We learned about up and down with the mats and our bodies. We danced and rattled rattles.

Project: We did some coloring today and read a special book with a velcro ball and track that helps our friend Jayce. He was so nice to let all his friends have a turn too.

Outside: We swung in our swings and went really fast down our slides. We did an excellent job using our words and waiting for our friends to move away from the slides today. We played pirate on our boat and tried to be very quiet to sneak past. “Oh no, a t-rex” climbed on our boat but he turned out to be friendly.

For Breakfast We Had: Cheerios, applesauce and milk

For Snack We Had: Graham crackers and milk

For Lunch We Had: Refried beans and rice, salad with green peppers and onions, and milk.

What we did today:

Block Area: We built a big town with our wooden blocks and then had fun knocking it over.

Manipulatives: We put up our birthday cakes and added candles for all our new friends. We talked about the months of the year and when everyone’s birthday is. Then we played birthday with our blocks. Jaelynn was a chef and taught everyone how to make cupcakes.

Housekeeping: “shh!” We’re feeding our babies in our house under the stairs. We were witches flying on our broom and we cooked lots of things.

Infant/Toddler Room Activity: We crawled everywhere! We climbed up on our mats and jumped. We did a lot of teething today. We tried to stick our suction cups to lots of different surfaces, they stuck pretty well to our plastic kitchen but not to our foam floor.

At Morning Meeting: We sang the finger song and “If You’re Happy and You Know it”

For Breakfast We Had: cornflakes, applesauce, and milk.

For Snack We Had: crackers and cheese.

What we did today:

Block Area: We played with a cardboard tube today. We used it as a telescope to see things “far away.” We put it on our arms and pretended to have “really long arms.”

Manipulatives: We got out our apples again, they seem to be a favorite. Aubree carried them all over several in each hand. Greyson threw them and said “ball.” Jaelynn Sorted them and helped the little ones put them back in their tray.

Housekeeping: We played with babies, wrapping them up in blankets and carrying them around. We used a frying pan as a phone. We did dishes in our sink, took our spray bottle apart and put it back together. We also played hide and seek and peek a boo in our house keeping area.

Infant/Toddler Room Activity: We jumped around a lot. We got out our suction cups and tried sticking them together (we also tried teething on them, they’re very chewy). We rode our ride on cars.

Outside: We pretended our play structure was a bridge we had to go over very carefully. Jaelynn showed off her somersaulting (though her mittens were being “tricky” and not staying on, but we worked through it). We swung on our swings and pushed our cars around. We saw and heard birds and talked about them flying south for winter. We also talked about how our garden was getting ready for winter.

For Snack We Had: cheerios, applesauce, and milk.

For Lunch We Had: beef barley soup, salad and milk.

We had nap time from 1:00 to 3:00
