June is “Planting the Seeds of Our Future” month. The babies are learning about flowers!
WEEK OF MAY 31st
Monday: Happy Memorial Day! Schools out.
Tuesday: Today, Kasen’s class focused on the future. They used crayons to color a picture of “the future” and shook musical instruments to futuristic music. Kasen’s teachers noticed that Kasen was growing bigger and bigger every day!
Wednesday: Kasen and his classmates looked at pictures of flowers by Georgia O’Keefe. The babies played with fake flowers and painted a flower with pink and black paint. Kasen enjoyed playing in the exersaucer. His teachers said, “Kasen also enjoyed moving his bib around so it was backwards. We called him a superhero and pretended to fly around the room.”
Thursday: Kasen’s teachers read a book about eggs and the babies played with shaker eggs. Kasen really enjoyed making silly faces in the mirror today.
WEEK OF JUNE 6th
Monday: In class,Kasen and his classmates looked at a picture of a red rose. They played with the flower and in art class they painted a picture of a rose. Kasen’s teachers report that he enjoyed listening to jazz music.
Tuesday: Kasen’s teachers tickled each baby’s feet with a tulip. In art class, the babies glued a picture of a flower together to make a tulip. They sang “I’m a little flower” to the tune of “I’m a little teapot.” Kasen really enjoyed when his teachers put on a puppet show.
Wednesday: The babies looked at pictures of flowers drawn by Georgia O’Keefe (the artist of the month). Kasen enjoyed tummy time on the play mat and smiled a lot when his teachers took pictures to decorate the classroom.
Thursday: Kasen’s class practiced “gentle touches” as they touched a flower. They practiced sitting like a tall lily in a garden. In art, they used chalk on black paper to make a daisy. Kasen had fun rolling while his teachers sang “If you’re happy and you know it.”
Over the last two weeks, Kasen’s teachers sent home a lot of pictures that Kasen made at daycare. Here are a few pictures:
We’ll do another update in two weeks!
