Happy birthday, Lucas!
Today we celebrated our dear friend, Lucas! We enjoyed some apple slices and special mini cupcakes for snack together. Even puppy, who drove the monster truck in Lucas' birthday portrait, got to join us for it and got his own cupcake! Do you think he took a bite of it?
To end the celebtation, Lucas' mom and dad read two amazing books to us - When's my birthday? by Julie Fogliano and A pizza with everything on it by Kyle Scheele.
As a special surprise Lucas' stuffy Puppy came to school, too! He must have secretly snuck into the bag they brought... What a silly puppy!
I saw Puppy in there! - Cape, pointing to bag with books
That's unbelievable! - Finlay
After the birthday celebration we stayed in Blake Hall for a little longer for a fun Birthday Rainey Room Friday Dance Party! We slithered like snakes, skipped, danced, jumped, walked backwards, like spider, cows, penguins and dogs, and spread our wings to fly through the air.
What a great way to increase our heart rate and warm up our bodies on a chilly day!
This week we also worked on creating "mini collages" on the light table using small materials, such as beads, sequins, buttons or jewelry rings. The ends of paper clips were used as a tool to position, arrange or adjust the small items on our collage base. This process is helping us to strengthen our pincer grip and fine motor skills.
