A Few Things We Did This Week

It has been a very, very busy week. Posting has taken a back seat to all the other things that have been occupying our time this past week. That isn't to say we haven't done lots of neat things though.

Of course outside time is on the top of our list. Getting all those wiggles out and expending all that energy a baby, toddler or preschooler has is an important part of our program. Leaving a child ready to open themselves to learning.

Being Silly is also an enormous part of our program. Can you imagine not being silly?? These kids can't!!

Some play dough work is always a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of our daily routines.

A little Montessori work for those who need some independent time.

On the light table we had x-rays of animals and people. This one got A LOT of use. Not only were the kids totally in awe that they looked like that inside, but seeing the bones in her face just amazed them. There was a lot of talking and discussing about there own faces. They even would stare in the mirror around the light table and study themselves. Very cute.

Winding down the school year is always hard. Getting everything in is always hard, what with practicing for our Spring Program, and enjoying the beautiful weather, we don't have time for much else. Just remember... Play is an important job for a child :)
