P is for Pilgrim

I love it when I see my little friends pretending to be teachers.
Kynley checking out the Indian Corn we popped in the microwave.

Audrey found a new use for the plant that Clara gave us. She was taking little animals and pretending they were in a jungle. Very clever...

Our art portfolio's are getting a little full.

Today we added feathers to our Indian vest. Assessments can sometimes we done this way. Look how Rosanna sorted out all white feathers to go on hers. We dont need worksheets! We LEARN THROUGH PLAY! :)

Today we talked about Pilgrims and how that starts with the letter P like pig and purple. We read the book " One Little Two Little Three Little Pilgrims". We took one page and distinguished who was pilgrims and who was Indians. After we mastered that I pointed at individuals on the page and they said the sounds for I and P accordingly. You could see their little brains working over time trying to do that.

We are getting ready for our big feast Wednesday. Remember... show up at the community building at 11:00 .Our plan is to start walking the kids down there at 10:30. There are some moms that have volunteered to already be down there getting ready, if you would like to help, please let me know. On the sign in sheet today and tomorrow you will have the opportunity to tell me how many to plan for and what dish you would like to bring. After eating everyone can go home and start celebrating with families.

I am a little nervous. Tonight I am hosting the Arkansas Family Child Care Associations first online training. It is in a server that allows the participants to see and hear me, I can share power points , documents and web sites. YIKES..... say a little prayer at 7 tonight that all goes well. :)
