The toddlers returned from Spring break and continued right back into their classroom routines. We welcomed several new friends in April. They all settled in wonderfully!
The weather in April allowed for some walks around campus in the sunshine. The toddlers loved looking for bugs and new flowers during these walks. Inside the classroom a few favorite works were using tongs to move plastic bugs in a patch of turf, planting silk flowers in clay pots using kinetic sand, and sorting small wooden ladybugs by size.
We ended the month of April with an Earth Day Celebration and concert with Eric Ode!
We will start the month of May off with our semiannual Infant/Toddler Park Day. We will be heading to Ferrel McWhirter Park to visit, walk the trails, and see all the animals. This is always such a fun event!
Inside in the classroom we will be bringing in some new works for the toddlers to explore. These works include baskets of items to help distinguish sizes, sand paper letters for sounding out, and hands on materials to help understand the concept of one versus two.
We will also be working on a special gift to bring home to celebrate Mother's Day. The toddlers will have the chance to create something special using paint, glitter and glue! Of course we are hoping for some more sunshine in May. We can't wait to get the toddlers back to the Nature Trail!
