Good afternoon Garden and Mountain families,

This week the children learned about loving and caring.  The children sang “The More We Get Together”, “Make New Friends” and “Skidamarinky Dink.”  During small circle the children read Love is You and Me, Itsy Bitsy I Love You, How Do I Love You?, and Kisses and Cuddles.  

For large motor activities this week, the children practiced the butterfly yoga pose. The children also threw and bounced balls.

For art this week the children used pink finger paint and markers to create Valentines Day cards. The children also made paintings by rolling marbles in a Tupperware container.

The children were so excited to welcome Ms. Kathleen back from Australia. In music class we sang about Koala bears, Kookubara Birds and “Waltzing Matilda”. The children also played with shaky eggs and sang into a microphone.

We encouraged the children to use the signs “more” and “please” this week. Here is an article from NAEYC that shows how infants use signs like “more” to quantify and learn pre-math skills:


Have a great weekend!
