I thought this year was going to be a more challenging year because we only had 3 returning students and so many new young students. So I guessed it might take a while before this group started figuring things out and was ready to move into more challenging activities. I was wrong! It is such a joy to look around at different times of the day and to see this group happily engaged in work that they've chosen. And they're so eager to learn!
The Mystery Number is one of the children's very favorite activities. Each day there is something different to count inside a little bunny box. Here our friend counts the elastics and then writes (or gets help writing) his name on a ticket. At the end of the day everyone gets their tickets back to take home.
We started Music Together with Caroline! Some of our favorite songs this week were I Had a Little Frog, I've Been Working on the Railroad, Shake Those Simmons Down, and Jim Along Josie.
We're eating a lot of apples when we go outside to play. This is a great season for apples! On Thursday the Duguay's are going to bring their apple press so that we can make apple cider!
