Despite the excitement over Mr. Peter’s birthday (HURRAY!), it has been a pretty low-key Tuesday here at Harbor City School. We enjoyed having Antonella’s mom, Christina (another C-name for C-week!) in the classroom with us. Christina dives right into dramatic play, which is a favorite of the kids’. Everyone was so excited to cook up some breakfast for her! We also discovered her knack for making up songs, as each child requested a special song from her about how they put on their coats. What a treat!
Today’s post’s picture comes from one of our afternoon adventures, which seldom get documented here on the blog. First of all, I write the blog during nap time and before the afternoon adventures have really begun. Secondly, our afternoons are often more laid-back than our mornings because a few of our friends go home at lunch time. Yesterday, we took advantage of our low numbers to set up a small obstacle course in the open, grassy space at the Bremen St. Park. We used the long tunnel to climb through (or pretend to be a worm!), as well as the colorful cones to practice running in Figure 8s.
Although we are eager and excited to welcome new friends to our classroom community, Peter and I really cherish these low-ratio times during our start-up phase. We’re had so many opportunities to spend quality one-on-one time with each of our Tugboats and it’s been a real pleasure getting to know them each so well.
