We had a Cheerio epidemic going on this morning. Around mid-morning the two one year olds got real fussy and we couldn't figure out what they wanted.Nothing seemed to satisfy them. We finally put them to the table and gave them some dry cheerios. Wasn't long before we heard some older ones walking around saying "I wish I could have some cheerios". So they ALL had cheerios. :D She has a very tiny toy baby and was repeatedly kissing it. :)

Today we sang "The Alphabet Song" and worked on recognizing some of the letters, practiced counting from 1-10 foward and backward, read a book about being patient and a book about fall, sang songs and did some finger plays.
This afternoon the older ones practiced writing their numbers from 1-10 and identifying numbers "before" and "after".

He's very concerned about the paint being on the apron.

The beginning of our pumpkin craft. "Hey! You jackets just wike mine!"

Another day of lots of outdoor time! We are really enjoying this but I'm sure it won't last too much longer.
This morning we started a pumpkin craft but we couldn't finish it because of the wet paint.
After lunch the older ones were back outside for another hour.
When they came in we worked on the letter Nn.
We also started sounding out and spelling a few 'at' words. They did very well at this and were SO proud of themselves! We wrote out two addition problems and wrote the numbers from 1-15 as I called the numbers out.
Then we read a couple books. By the time we were finished naptime was over.
After snack everyone was back outside from 3:30- 5:30.
