The first few weeks of school we have been settling in and learning the order and routine of our classroom. We keep the classroom the same in appearance and routine for the first several weeks to allow the children to acclimate. Repetition and consistency encourage the child to feel confident and secure. The children are learning which activities and materials belong on which shelves. They are also picking up on our daily routine of morning classroom time, snack, outdoor time, group music and then lunch.

At our group time the children have enjoyed the book “Big Bug.” It's a simple book with lovely artwork about things in our world appearing big and little. At this stage of development when language is still developing, books that are simple in words allow the child to process and connect what they are seeing and hearing.

I hope you have all enjoyed this summer like weather we have been having!
