What a wonderful start to the new school year. We started off with our All About Me questions, figuring out things like our favorite colors, activities, and food. We love to sing the ABC’s, number songs and Days Of The Week. Our expressive language skills are growing by leaps and bounds! We even started to learn some numbers in Spanish, so far we are up to 5! We have been doing a lot of coloring and painting, mixing the paint and making different colors is one of our favorite things to do. We have done a few sensory activities such as, shaving cream and food coloring in bags, and playdoh. Our fine motor skills are being enhanced by using plastic knives, rollers and shaped cutters with our playdoh. We have also been working very hard on our social skills and manners such as please, no thank you, thank you and you’re welcome. Additionally, we are responding better to prompts to “use our words” in moments of frustration. Since moving up, we have started to use the potty, and love to sing songs while we sit. We are getting better at it each day. We have also been spending as much time as we can outside getting exercise, enjoying the fresh air and playing with friends.
As our Hummingbirds continue to grow, encourage them to do more on their own. Like, carrying and putting their lunchbox and water bottle away in the mornings, or holding their nap mats on the way to the car on Fridays. They love to be big helpers!
