Hello bluebird families!
These past two weeks have been filled with Halloween themed fun! We started off the festivities with a pumpkin name search. Each bluebird visited “Ms. Gina’s pumpkin patch” and searched for a pumpkin with their name hidden name on it. Once they found it, they personalized them with a paint job, decorations and even came up with a special name for their pumpkin.
Here are some bluebirds working on their fine motor skills, by threading their own spider webs and pinching eye droppers full of paint for salad spin art. The salad spin art was also a good gross motor exercise, as it took strength and muscles to turn the handle to spin the spinner.
Below are bluebirds exploring different roles on the rockstar stage and the haunted house. These sociodramatic play provocations are important as they are some of the first ways children learn about their likes and dislikes, their interests, and their abilities. They experiment with role playing and work to make sense out of what they’ve observed. This play also helps our bluebirds learn to solve problems, coordinate, cooperate, and think flexibly.
Music fun with Mr. Lane and Ms. Gayle.
I hope you all have a lovely weekend!
