We began our morning by exploring our 5 senses. We felt different textures, smelled an array of different scents, listened to a story, looked through a kaleidoscope, and tasted both salty and sweet treats for our snack. There was something for every one to enjoy.
Some of us got a little silly and tried on my giant Listening Ears.
For art today we listened to some music as we free painted. We even added a jingle bell on the end of our paint brush for some more sensory fun!
Then the fun arrived. Zoo Man from the Austin Zoo brought some of his special friends for a visit.
A 35 year old Cockatoo. She sang and whistled to us. She was very well behaved and we even heard her say, "Pretty Bird".
Next up was Sausage, the Blue Tongue Skink. He likes to eat bananas, eggs and bugs. We also learned that he is a very slow mover.
We met Jojo the Wallaby. He is 9 months old and loves to eat apples and carrots.
One of my little friends was extra brave and volunteered to hold the Madagascar Hissing Cockroach!!!!
What visit from the Zoo Man would be complete without a snake. Goldie the Ball Boa joined us today. Although none of the children touched the snake they got a nice up close and personal look at him ( I kept a healthy distance.)
The boys and girls were attentive and enthusiastic guests at the Zoo Man's show. Special thanks to the Zoo Man for another great show!
Here you will find little snippets of our days together. When my children were in preschool and would come home I would always ask, "So, what did you do today?". All they ever said was, "Played." That didn't tell me much. I hope this blog will be a place to share what we have done and help you ask more directed questions of your child. You will see first hand just what we do after you kiss your little one goodbye in the morning. It will also be a great place to visit and see just how much your child has grown and learned throughout the year.
