boy howdy. in order to have both morning and afternoon sessions, we limited our class time to two and a half hours instead of three and we’ll meet more often during the school year. but i forgot to change my lesson plans/daily routine.
so this is why we’re tired:
we had to find our picture on our cubby and sometimes we look different than we thought.
we’ve been catching up on facts circa 1956.
we’ve been making lists, writing, scribbling-reminding our hands what to do.
we’ve smooshed all seven colors of playdough together.
we’ve been treated to the gift of food.
we’ve written verses to a silly, silly song.
we also learned that if you add an “s” to a word (usually) it means more than one. so one friend thought we needed aiken drums, not just aiken drum. clever.
we smelled bamboo and learned the workings of an electric knife. it was still fun even though the blades were missing.
(thank you, jane and fiona’s mama)
we chose a favorite color and painted.
we found out that certain letters are called “vowels” and they can make the “apples and bananas” song really fun.
we got our own water-no ice!- in our real glass cups.
good thing our new circle time rug arrived mid week so we had a soft place to rest!
