You've Got Mail!

On Monday, we were finally back together again (well, sort of, because Miss D's family was sick - bummer).

Miss K's Circle Time theme for this week was mail. She explained how a letter gets from here to there, what stamps are, how to address an envelope, etc. We made Valentines during Independent Work time and addressed them to various friends and family members.

Also, I had a couple new things on the shelves. Miss K's daughter practiced pouring from a pitcher into two containers. The goal is to pour only to the line, and the white pitcher contains more water than necessary. The sponge is for spills.

I also had a scooping/leveling activity out, which my 2-year-old used. Here she's working from left to right - she scoops, levels, transfers.

The inspiration for this work came from The Wonder Years, which, in case you've missed it, is just an amazing blog - thank you!!

Miss C's son used the sand tray and sandpaper letters:

Miss K's daughter used the knobless cylinders:

Over the weekend, Miss K's youngest daughter celebrated her first birthday, and we had fun re-celebrating with her. Miss K brought cupcakes and we sang "Happy Birthday" - so much fun! Happy Birthday, little one!!

We closed with the Q verse and story from My ABC Bible Verses: "Quench not the Spirit," 1 Thessalonians 5:19.
