Baby Nursery

The Sea Otter class have really enjoyed turning the Dramatic Play area into a Nursery. The children have drawn pictures of their babies & talked about what kinds of food they like to eat. Isa said, "Moana likes apples and bananas." They have also taken the responsibility of giving their babies a bath. 
Dramatic play encourages the children  to role play everyday life situations & provides opportunities to practice overall good care  & hygiene of our bodies.
Aside from all the caring, and role playing fun, baby baths are a really fun sensory activity & the children love it!

Spirit Week

The children definitely showed their school spirit this week & were so kind in complimenting each other on their clothes and outfits. Not only were they in such good spirits, they were busy making their grandparents gifts, designing clothes for their babies and started the process of making a gas station in the bike area.

Hello Neighbor!

The children in the Sea Turtle class have been turning our classroom into a city. This week, the children created their own neighborhood, each with their own house made of cardboard! They added details to their houses like kitchens, bathrooms, garages, roofs, and doors. The children also gave their houses an address and mailbox, so they could send each other mail and letters. This activity supports writing development, sense of place, and community building! 

The neighborhood on Purple Street.
The streets are marked with purple masking tape which leads to each house. 

Hudson shows us how to use his oven and stove.

Hudson's address: "1213 Purple Street"
