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.

The newest addition to our table was a new light box. (I got the directions to make it here.) Along with the light box I added a basket with some objects to try out.
Today we saw a huge stack of cardboard boxes at our neighbors so A went and nicely (manners) asked if we could play with them. They said yes & so we worked on carrying them (gross motor) over to our porch.
A started arranging them so I asked what did she want make. She decided on a castle looking at some pictures on the phone. (decision making) So with most of it being her ideas we arranged the boxes and added tape. Then she decided it needed a bridge so we added it along with a rubberband and some sticks so the bridge could stay closed. (Imagination, problem solving).
Later we brought out markers so A & S could decorate it. Later K came over and he enjoyed the castle. They even found alternative ways to play with it and the slide. (working together) .
