This morning the Tadpoles used their sensory skills to play with play dough
with Ms. Subohi. They made different shapes and felt the play dough on their
hands. In the media table, they also used their sense of touch to scoop and
pour rice and lentils.
In the front room, the Tadpoles used their fine motor skills to play with
trains and blocks. They built different structures and fixed the tracks that
they made for the trains. Some children also read books with the teachers
and played dress-up and pretend in the kitchen area. In the back room, the
children put together legos. Some also played with dollhouses and on the
spinners and slide.
Outside, some of the Tadpoles pretended to be different animals with Ms.
Yelena and Ms. Heather. Some of the animals were a giraffe, cow, and
chicken. We talked about what those animals smelled with their noses
including grass, leaves and even eggs. The Tadpoles also enjoyed building
and digging in the sand box and swinging on the swings.
At Toad Mountain, the jumpers enjoyed playing a game of hide and seek.
Some also played freeze tag and swung on the swings. Some jumpers also
played in the mud and collected berries. A few jumpers also pretended to be
different superheroes with the Frogs. During this time, some of the swimmers
helped Ms. Yelena to pick tomatoes from the Tadpole garden. A few also
played hide and seek with Ms. Heather and had fun climbing around in the
It was a fantastic day at Frog Pond!
