This month we are focusing on being Thankful and ways to show Kindness towards others. To help with this we have crated a Thankful Tree where the leaves are handwritten notes of what we are thankful for.
So to help spread this mindset we started our tree on our Family Diner night so our friends could join with us. I was very happy with how engaged everyone was and the time and thought they put into their leaves.

Today we have been focusing on Feelings. (Happy, silly, scared, worried, strong, ect.) So the Kiwi Crate box fit right in today with Music.
We started by talking about what are ways that you can show emotion. They came up with things like: drawing, words, face (smile, frown), dancing. Then dancing lead us to talk about what you hear when you dance sometimes…music!
So we read the story & had great discussions about many aspects of music, instruments, & feelings.

What a fun morning surprise for A & S! I created a fun, with moving parts, bulldozer!
We went shopping with Grammy the other day & A was excited to try this Play Foam. So we decided it would be a fun $7 gift.
The next time that just S was napping (as I did not trust him with this) we grabbed a tale cloth and went to town.
We had so much fun with this. As A said, “This is like play dough but only wroth more bubbles! “. We made different shapes, worked on sharing, Listening to the different sounds it could make, & imagining different animals.
SKILLS: Shapes, Sensory, Sharing, Imagination, Sounds.
