Happy Monday! Miss Desiree had a day off today so Miss Shawn was in Babies 1 today.
This morning babies 1, 2, and 3 played together in the babies 1 and 2 yard. This was great to see them all interacting. They played with blocks and slid down the slide.They had lots of fun! Mason played with the puzzles while Kira sat on a the mat with the blocks moving them around. Adelin found a pan from the kitchen area and placed the small wooden blocks in one at a time. Conor had fun chasing the other babies Amilla explored looking at all the activities around the yard.
ONE-ON-ONE INTERACTIONS: Miss Shawn spent some time with Conor and Kira looking in the mirror. Miss Shawn said “Who is that in the mirror?” Conor and Kira pointed and smiled.
TRANSITION: When it was meal-time Miss Bronagh called the babies into the room and sat them in their high-chair. We sang good morning to our friends and using their names.
Miss Shawn and Miss Bronagh did a short group time outside while the other teachers packed the yard away. She sung some of the babies’ favourite songs such as:
- 5 little speckled frogs
- Galumph went the little green frog,
- Open shut them,
- Wind the bobbin up
For our activity today we continued the theme with animals and the babies painted paper plates green for frogs. Miss Bronagh sat with Amilla and Adelin who enjoyed painting with the paint brush. This experience the babies have time and space to explore and discover how they wish, and the educators are there to encourage independence and discovery. Miss Bronagh had some one-on-one time with Kira and a stuffed bunny. Kira cuddled the bunny as Miss Bronagh cuddled Kira. Adelin found the ball activity. She sat down observed the activity, looked at the ball and discovered that it goes through the hole.
Today was full of exploration, discovery, and lots and lots of learning.
Have a wonderful evening.
Miss Shawn and Miss Bronagh
