May was a busy month for our friends in Ambarino! We worked on creating a beautiful gift for Mother’s Day. Our friends lent their feet to help create this one of a kind piece. We welcomed Brian to our room. It has been so much fun getting to know him and watch him explore any work that he is able to crawl after. We also said good bye to Zoë as she moved up to her toddler classroom. Even though we won’t see her as much as we used to, we know we will still catch glimpses of her as she goes past the window on the playground.
Some popular works this month were the straw put ‘n take container, a basket of different open and close containers and soft cubes. Our older friends have been practicing packing their work away when they are done with it. Sometimes they can even be seen helping their younger friends by packing their work away as well, even when they aren’t done with it. We have been helping the older friends to give the work back to their younger friends. It has been nice to see our older friends helping around the classroom.
All of our friends have been very vocal! It has been wonderful to hear their voices and all of the chatter that has been going on! It is always nice to hear how each child is finding their voice and discovering how to use it.
In June we will be welcoming more new friends to the room and working on creating a one of a kind Father’s Day gift.
This time of year is always bittersweet as we say goodbye to our friends who are moving on and welcoming new friends into the room. Combine that with wrapping up the school year and then getting ready for summer- it is a wonderful mix of excitement and a slight bit of frenzy all at the same time. Thank you as always for sharing your children with us. It is such an honor to watch them learn and grow each day.
Enjoy the nice weather that continues to tease us as we head towards summer!
