Old McDonald Had A Farm


September 21-24, 2015

This week we continued learning about:

- The color blue.

- Farm animals using puppets, plastic animals, books and pictures. We practiced sounds and the names of the different animals.

- The Little Boy Blue and Ole Mc Donald poems and songs were told and heard with various technological media, and with our voices.

During table time, we also:

- Practiced hand shaking when using our Good Morning songs.

- Practiced, on command, placing our blue monkeys IN and then taking them OUT of the barrel one by one.

- Continued to incorporate counting as well as the words UP and DOWN when being seated and taken out of the table chairs and onto and off the changing table (our kiddos are beginning to try saying the prompts).

- Sang our meal prayer and folded our hands before all snacks and lunch. ( Yes, they fold their hands now!)

Teacher Requests:

Please pack your little one a sweater or light jacket for our Autumn Walks, it's getting chilly out there!

I graduated from Kennesaw State University with a bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education and Psychology. After graduation, I worked at a learning center where I tutored pre-k through high school students and later became the Assistant Director. During my time there, I felt led to apply to North Point/Buckhead Church, and I was in awe of God's faithfulness when I received a call to work in Weekday.

My husband, Richard, and I have been married for six years. We don't have children yet, but we are excited about starting a family in the future.
