¡May, Mamas, and Maracas!
During speech rotations, we continued to read From Head to Toe to work on our imitation skills. For example, we waved our arms like monkeys and bent our necks like giraffes. Then we worked on our matching skills by following the direction "put with same." We also identified big and small objects. We then carried that into identifying which animal was big and which was small when presented with two animals. During P.E., we tried on different hats and tapped our feet during the sombrero dance. We also danced to La Cucaracha and took turns hitting a pinata.
With our friends from room 4, we played at the water table, walked on ABC stepping blocks, and made caterpillars by poking red and green grapes through skewers. We made a zoo and also had some wild animals running around the toy area. We read books about what living things need and made observations about how our own seeds grew grass. At circle, we used Tuned into Learning songs to sing the Function Fiesta, ask/answer social questions, and answer who, what, and why questions. In addition, we discussed our feelings and then sang and danced about being happy! On Thursday, we released the butterflies (so long Bushy, Gaga, Cathy, etc.) and then had a birthday party for Ms. Mary!
