I think the title of this painting should be “We Want Sun!” These guys made a good, fun mess painting with their hands, a spoon, roller and a stick!

Here are a few random pictures from the past few days. I could take pics all day; the kids are always doing and saying awesome things! I love the one of our little friend reading the book- upside down!! He was very serious and concentrated!! This is a great example of modeling. He has watched others looking at books and doing what he has seen! ❤️

Counting!

These children are using their “counting finger” to help them count during circle time. The idea of one to one correspondence has to be taught… otherwise sometimes they’ll count seven one time and twelve another time for the same group! These guys are doing great!!!

Fun Day!

We had some fun today! If your child came home talking about riding a train, he’s not telling a story! Ms Julie brought in a very cool train that was just the right size for our kids; sadly, I could not ride on the train.:( We played charades, dug in pink sand and painted! We also had ice cream! That was a fun treat!!

A great way to spend a Wednesday morning!

I agree with this article. Now, it’s certainly easy to read and agree with words in an article. But I’ve always wanted to teach the WHY behind actions. Children that act from fear of being caught or just for a reward only turn into …. teenagers that do the same and then progress into adults that act the same way. I want the children in my care to learn how to choose to do the right thing on their own, because it’s right– not just because someone is looking and will praise them for it. Alternately I want them to resist doing the wrong thing because it’s wrong and not out of fear of a punishment.

I’ll stop now. Every once in awhile I feel the need to share something I feel strongly about. 🙂

Friday

Happy Birthday to our friend! She’s a such a big girl!! 😂 We ❤️ her so much!!

This week our second grade friends came and read books to us. We love it when they come. One little friend cried when they left saying “I don’t want the big kids to go!”

Have a fabulous weekend everyone!!
