The infants loved looking at and reading our Jingle Bells book! They also enjoyed hearing it sung during circle time. This particular edition featured a dog who rode in the sleigh with the children and lots of glitter covering the pages to make it look like freshly fallen snow. With so many of our friends in various stages of mobility, the red wagon has been a very popular work to use. It has been such a joy to watch how each child engages with it. Sometimes they might even give a friend a ride, which always elicits lots of smiles from the friend who happened to find themselves sitting in the wagon at the right time.
At the end of the month, we said goodbye to Celia as she moved on to the toddler classroom. It will be nice to see her when she stops by the window to see what is going on in our room. It was such a joy to watch her grow into such a confident, caring and curious toddler.
In January, we will focus on snow, snowmen and various circle works. We will also talk about items that are blue that we see in the classroom and outside.
We hope you had a relaxing break and have had a healthy start to the new year!
