December flew by! The toddlers enjoyed all of our holiday and winter themed works and books. “Frosty the Snowman” has been a beloved book. The toddlers have even taken to “reading” the book to each other in the library area as well as singing the phonetic alphabet individually.
A few favorite works included felt tree decorating, stamping work, sensory bottles, and hand transfer works.
One of our transfer works contained clear gems on a milk glass bowl. This work was very delicate and the toddlers have to be careful and slow while carrying it to a table. They were also able to work on their fine motor skills and concentration while moving the gems.
As a group we made a large sensory bottle containing water, food coloring, pom-poms, and beads. The toddlers enjoyed helping to make this big work for our classroom and then being able to use it!
During snack time the toddlers worked on spreading jam and cream cheese with a small knife as well as peeling an orange independently. Throughout January we will continue our winter theme and ringing in the New Year!
