Before entering the classroom, Teacher Andrea has started a new routine for the children. She asks each child how they would like to be greeted: a hug, a high-five, or a thumbs up! Andrea shared that she wanted to implement this in the classroom so she could be able to give each child individual attention at least once during the day. She also wanted to model for the children appropriate ways to say Hello!

This week the sensory table is filled with flour amd baby oil. The children enjoy getting their hands in there and using their creative imaginations. Today, Ryan, Cassidy and Jax were pretending to bake a cake and put some pipettes as candles. Sensory activites encourage the children to describe what they are doing while they play.

Today we exercised our gross motor skills as we transitioned from Group time to potty/washing hands! Teacher Andrea held up the limbo stick as the children practiced taking turns. When the stick got closer to the floor, some children bent down as low as they could, while others figured that they could simply step over it!
