This morning, the Tadpoles sang the “I’m a tree” song with Ms. Subohi. She
also used the tree puppet to talk about leaves. The puppet has different
leaves that stick onto the tree. They talked about how leaves fall and the
different colors they can be. The Tadpoles also played a leaf matching
game by trying to match up different leaves. In the front room, the
children played with puzzles. They also engaged in picnic play and played
with the dress- up clothes. Some children also read books.
Outside, the Tadpoles played on the swings and the monkey bars. Some
children also played in the sandbox and even pretended to build a beaver
house out of sticks with Ms. Subohi. Groups of children also went to
grandmother oak tree with Ms. Yelena. We pretended to be squirrels looking
for acorns and collected a lot of acorns. One group even saw a family of
deer running behind the fence in Huntley Meadows! Some children also
noticed a squirrel running around.
At Toad Mountain, the jumpers explored and dug around for worms. Some
jumpers also ran around the mountain and followed the goats. Some jumpers
pretended to be in a boat while sitting in the kayak. During this time,
the swimmers played in the outdoor houses and on the swings. Some swimmers
also enjoyed building with legos in the outdoor classroom.
The children all enjoyed a picnic lunch outside in the nice weather.
It was a fun day at Frog Pond.
