We are switching over the classroom to align with some fall/Halloween-themed activities on Friday during our planning day!
Color – Orange
Number – 2
Colors and numbers are always great to reinforce at home!
“Oh, you have orange on your shirt….”
Our lunchtime “blessing”:
Oh, the earth is good to me
And so I thank the earth
For giving me, the things I need
The sun and the rain and the apple seed
The earth is good to me.
Group time gathering:
Down is the earth
Up is the sky
Here are my friends
And here am I.
The snack calendar will go home soon. As a reminder, we ask that you bring one organic grain and a fruit. We eat a grain in the morning and a fruit when we come in from outside by 11 a.m.
Toddlers & Choices
The children love to feel they have a say in what is happening. Giving them choices (two) is always helpful. In the classroom, we often use choices, especially during a transition, such as going outside.
“Would you like to hold your water bottle or should I?” (Often, they want to hold it.) Or “Which shoes would you like to put on to leave, blue or pink?” Give them time to process. Sometimes, if an answer doesn’t seem to come, we will then say, “Would you like me to choose for you?”
Thank you all for your continuous patience and support!
