It has been fun to watch the infants engage with their friends, especially when they are using the climber. The older infants will try to engage others to chase them, while others are just content having a peer to smile at them and occasionally babble about something.
This month we talked a lot about different shapes and objects that were red in the classroom. The infants enjoyed engaging with a heart block puzzle and reading the book Happy Valentine's Day, Mouse! by Laura Numeroff. Many of our friends also enjoyed helping to create a card for their families using paint to make thumb prints and coloring with crayons.
In March we will talk a lot about objects that are the color green. Our friends have really been interested in watching out the window so this will be a wonderful opportunity to talk about all of the trees outside and all of the plants that are starting to turn green again. We will also be reading different books about farm animals and continue to talk about the different sounds they make.
