>Slow Down!!!

>Man, I need a week long nap. This year is flying by. We no sooner get through one holiday or event, and before we can turn around, another is upon us! Did someone put the world on fast forward? Maybe pressed skip too many times? We are still working on the “spring” related things in our class and now we have to begin Easter stuff. Aaarrrggg! At least tonight’s Classroom meeting went really well. At our Center, each classroom is required to host 4 Classroom meetings. Open House counts as one and we have to come up with ideas for the other 3. Tonight, our local Educational Consultant helped us host a nutritious food/snack event. Parents came with their child and we learned how to make some really cool snacks that also incorporated a lot of skills: fine motor, counting, sorting, color recognition, following directions, sequencing, etc. It was really cool for obvious reasons (we got to eat the goodies we made) but it was neat because parents got a chance to see how we, as teachers, incorporate learning with play. The turnout was fantastic. Each parent that signed up came, even the family that isn’t in our room yet. We were very pleased with the whole thing.

Now, we have to get ready for Easter. At least we have some really fun science/snack activities we can use in our lesson plan for next week…

About CuriousCat

I love to learn new things-anything from how to create a junk journal to the way light moves through space; why cats present their behinds to us to the effects of chemicals on our endocrine system. If it interests me, I can spend hours reading and learning about it.
