Posted by [email protected] on December 2, 2021 at 1:50 PM Comments comments (2)

This week in the infant classroom the theme is Hanukkah! We have explored and talked about the holiday and what traditions go along with it! The infants enjoyed exploring different things this week including shape sorters, matching empty containers and their lids and scribbling on paper! The older infants have enjoyed the weather this week and the sunshine as they explored outside. Another few crowd favorites were painting with finger paint on top of foil and mixing food coloring in small baggies with shaving cream in them! It was fun to see the infants react to the color of the paint on the foil and the shaving cream turning from white to a bright color! We have had a great week but we look forward to a new theme on Monday! Until next time!

This week in the infant classroom the theme was Halloween! We have explored a lot but here were some of our favorites. The entire infant classroom loved exploring thin foam pumpkin cut outs. The younger infants practiced reaching for the pumpkins on the floor during tummy time or off the ledge while standing. Our older infants loved exploring the classroom in search of hidden pumpkins. We tried counting out loud with each pumpkin we found. We also had a blast during our Halloween celebration with the center. It was a different way to spend our morning get dressed up in costumes, singing songs with our older friends and going on a wagon ride/waving to our siblings and older friends. We also explored sensory bags with spiders in them, paper and crayons and Halloween books. We look forward to a new theme next week! Until next time!

It was fun to not only explore the hats together, but we also tried to touch familiar body parts like our head or our feet as we watched our reflections! A book that we visited quite a few times this week is a sensory book called “Let’s Go to the Firehouse!” It shows different things we may find at a fire station as well as sensory patches on each page. The younger infants loved practicing turning pages with teachers help and feeling the sensory on each page.

This week in the infant classroom the theme is Pirates! We have had such a blast this week but here are a few of our favorite activities. The older infants thought it was silly and fun to watch teachers imitate the “boat” yoga pose on the classroom floor. The infants did a great job attempting to lift their legs up and off the ground. Our class also enjoyed sliding fish and sensory balls down our painted tube and practicing retrieving them where ever they landed in the classroom. The group also practiced sticking pieces of tissue paper to clear contact paper, taking shapes in and out of shape sorters and reaching for bubbles in the air!
