Tuesday, October 13
Today our avid learners began the first official unit of Joy School--Joy of the Body. We learned about many of the amazing things our bodies can do! Outside the kids traced their bodies with chalk, crawled through a tunnel, and worked on balancing their bodies on a wooden balance beam. Inside we read books about the human body and worked on body puzzles, tumbling (which turned into getting under a big blanket and pretending to sleep), and learned about the five senses through an air popping popcorn exercise. The popcorn & clementines became our snack.
Annika loved making art projects today and created an additional project where she glued together a collage of shapes.
Abby loved tracing her body on the sidewalk.
Ava loved doing the date and weather and did an impeccable job sitting on her mat and being a special helper.
Imani loved reading books under the tumbling mat.
They all loved learning about sight, sound, smell, taste and touch with the popcorn popper!
I loved seeing all their unique personalities emerge!
