Hot Potato

At small group time, the children passed a ball around while listening to the Hot Potato Song. When the music stopped Teacher Cassie asked questions such as “How do you feel today?”, “What did you have for breakfast?”, “What is your favorite food?”  and “What do you want to be when you grow up?” Alanna answered “Happy.” Samuel answered “Cheerios and granola.” Daniel said his favorite food is  “Broccoli” and Gabe said he wants to be a “ Race car driver, Firefighter and a Zookeeper.”

Measurement in the Block Area

Since the children are always building tall structures in the block area, we have begun to incorporate tape measures. We are learning about measurement, specifically how tall and wide the structures are. After the children build, they have been using measuring tape to measure their structures. Then we put the measurement on our paper to compare them. This introduces the children to measurement and supports development in math and science.
