INFANT/TODDLER ROOM #1
Back to School
Summer Recap: This summer was filled with so many fun activities. We explored science, nature, history, and geography, creating music, crafts, as well as participating in recreational sports. Our babies explored the differences between cold and rising temperatures through water play. We also explored our outdoor surroundings and learned new songs. We learned body parts such as eyes, ears, nose, and mouth. We also participated in arts and crafts using our motor skills. We learned about the farm and the animals that live there. Our class also learned about how sea creatures and different animals play a part in helping their habitat thrive. Enrichment for this month focused on helping students with sensory skills and Self Help. Students practiced matching skills, self-grooming, and choosing outfits. Sensory skills were practiced as students were introduced to different textures provided in our learning materials.
September Recap: This has been an exciting month for us here in our infant-toddler room. We made the transition of combining our infants with our walkers. This has been a great opportunity for our young babies to see the older ones reaching milestones to learn from them as we all thrive and grow together. Our topics this month were all about me and back to school. Children are creating new bonds as they grow and play together during inside and outside activities. We are learning how to take care of our class materials and navigate around the room.
Our friends in Room 3 are getting used to the routine we have here at school. We are adjusting to having a set nap time, lunch time, and time to learn. It is important during this age to stick to these routines so please work with us to try to maintain these schedules. We have been working on learning about plant life and flowers. We are learning our body parts such as our hands, feet, legs, and arms. We made beautiful works of art using our hands and feet. It was nice to see all of you that came to open house to see what we do in our classroom.
October News: In October we will learn about the solar system and space as we step into Fall. We will also learn about our eyes and ears and how we utilize them. We will focus on self help skills as we continue to work on learning the routines of the classroom. Children will learn to expect to wash their hands at specific times throughout the day and to put their work back on the shelves when they are done using the materials. Please remember to sign up for snack host! It is a great opportunity for picky eaters to try new foods. We look forward to reaching new levels od development with your kiddos.

Five Little Pumpkins
Five little pumpkins, sitting on a gate.
The first one said, “Oh my it’s getting late.”
The second one said, “There are which is in the air!”
The third one said, “But we don’t care.”
The fourth one said, “Let’s run and run and run.”
The fifth one said, “We’re ready for some fun.”
Ooooh went the wind and out went the light.
And the five little pumpkins rolled out of sight!
