Our pets are the best!
Happy Birthday to Kyleigh!
Ms. Jonalyn's group
We worked on various skills this week. We did a lot of pretend play. We pretended to be animals. We also pretended to cook in the kitchen with our new dishes. Our favorite pretend game was to bring Ms. Jonalyn some invisible M&M's and then eat them all before she could. Such fun!
We played in the parachute making it go up and down, fast and slow. We also caught bubbles in a cup. Our favorite activity this week was a trip to the sensory room. So much to explore! We played in the ball pit, watched bubbles go up the tube and touched all types of textures and fabrics.
We worked on hand and eye coordination by doing string art. That was challenging but fun. We made animal art with paint and animal shaped sponges. We also worked on up and down motion by using stampers to make dots. Ms. Alex, our intern, helped us make puppy dogs out of our handprints.
Lastly, we gave our baby dolls a bath and then worked on a new skill by squirting water in a tub. That was so much fun!
Ms. Claar's group
Our pretend skills got a work out this week too. We pretended to play in the park and go on a bear hunt. We also pretended to be various animals. We made some fun art projects including a snake, fish in a fish bowl and puppies!
The weather would not cooperate this week so we spent a lot of time in the L shape. We played in the parachute, rode on scooters and pushed babies around in strollers. We also played with sand again in the sensory table. What a great week we had!
