I asked my three-year-old son, Will, what he did at daycare today. Sometimes I get a minute of amount of information from him. Today I got, "I played...oh, I don't know. I don't remember, Mommy." And so I consulted the trusty daily slip that our daycare provider sends home to get a better sense of what they really did today. Like us in first grade, they did a lot at daycare, but Will was simply too exhausted and distracted to tell me about it. Our days at school are busy, hard-working, and, often, exhausting. Since I have more photos than normal from today, I thought I should share some of what we did. If your child is anything like mine, you didn't hear about most of this! :-)
We started our day with a fast and fun movement activity--The Beanbag Boogie--during our Morning Meeting. Students were moving and grooving so much I couldn't get a clear picture of the action! :-)
We began our science unit about magnets this week. Today, many students were able to experiment with magnets, read magnet books, do a pretest re: magnets, and start making a Types of Magnets mini-book.
