During the week of Earth Day, we spent the week talking about the earth and the world around us. We sang the song "I've Got the Whole World in my Hands", read the book I Love You Sun, I Love You Moon by Tomie dePaulo and did several art projects with recycled items. One of the more popular works that week was creating collages with torn paper of different textures. Each toddler had the opportunity to add to the collages each day.
In the month of May we plan to take longer walks around campus to experience all of the different sights and sounds that can be experienced with the warmer weather that is coming. We will continue counting different items around the classroom and learning our numbers. The toddlers will have many opportunities to use different items to paint with and make their own unique creations to display for all our friends to see. It has been such a joy to watch the toddlers spend longer periods of time focusing on the works they choose during the day. They have been continuing to work on their grace and courtesy by helping their friends throughout the day with their works and with keeping our classroom beautiful.
