The kids also played a new game I bought at the last conference I was at. It would be very simple to make. We had animals that we from notepads. Large pages and then mini note pad pages in the shape of animals. They were c0lored! I laminated them and handed them out to the kids . They had to make the sound that animal makes and the mommies or daddies ( BIG note pages) had to look for the babies ( small note pages). They enjoyed it.
The kids are doing so well with all our QA standards. One of the standards says the children should not be in large group time more than 10 minutes. Elliot had a new watch on today and half way through circle time he announced " I think we have 9 minutes left!" A little off the time but I was impressed he remembered I had a standard I was shooting for!
