"Green Grass Grows All Around": May 22, 2008


b0137410_1221748.jpgWe started out the circle time by watching a DVD of Chicka Chicka Boom Boom.

The kids enjoyed singing with the DVD and seeing the whole story (because our board book only tells the first part).

The kids liked the part where the mommies and pappas came and picked up the children. They enjoyed seeing all the boo-boos (ouches) that the baby letters got when they fell out of the coconut tree.

After that we sang and danced. We learned a new song, "Green Grass Grows All Around", and we did a couple of circle songs like Looby Loo (kids are still not great at doing circle songs).

Then we did a little A-B-C-D Yoga. The kids enjoyed acting like alligators, and butterflies, and crocodiles, and driving their cars.

Then it was snack time.

After snack, the Rompers did their letter E worksheets. Yuko came up with this cute cracked egg with clear wrap for the egg white! Everyone did a good job writing their names and writing the letter "E".

The Kinders read books and worked on a maze while the Rompers were doing their craft, while Tim and the Toddlers played with the Hungry Caterpillar magnet story.

Before lunch, Tim took the Rompers out for PE while I and the Kinders sang some songs and read to the Toddlers.

And after lunch, Jeana did Language Arts with Kinders, while Rompers read stories or did some free art/drawing time.

(Miss Lynette was out today with a sick child. We hope A feels better soon.)

In closing circle, we sang the song of the Hungry Caterpillar and read the story of the "First Strawberries".
