We Love Singing… http://freedommontessori.org/2015/01/26/we-love-singing/ http://freedommontessori.org/2015/01/26/we-love-singing/#comments Mon, 26 Jan 2015 20:02:51 +0000 http://freedommontessori.org/?p=2318 Read more]]> Something great about our Toddler Class is that they love to sing and dance, no matter the tune! I had a parent to request lyrics for some of the songs that we sing throughout the day…below are some of our most common everyday songs! Enjoy!

Blessing- Before Snack and Lunch (tune: Are You Sleeping?)

Hands together, hands together to say the Grace, to say the Grace

I put my hands together to say the Grace to say the Grace

God our Father, God our Father, once again, once again, once again

Thank you for our blessings, thank you for our blessings

Amen, Amen

 

Handwashing Song (tune: Are You Sleeping?)

Tops and bottoms,

Tops and bottoms

In between

In between

All around your hands

All around your hands

Now you’re clean

Now you’re clean

 

Clean Up-We don’t have a clean up song but we do sing this after the bell is rung and they need to put their materials away and come to the line

Everybody come and sit on the line

Everybody come and sit on the line

Not on the ceiling, not on the door

Everybody come and sit on the line

Criss-cross, applesauce criss-cross, applesauce

Hands in your lap, hands in your lap

Criss-cross, applesauce criss-cross, applesauce

Hands in your lap, hands in your lap

Today we made yummy and healthy strawberry and banana smoothies, which the kids really excited to taste! We enjoyed walking downtown Main Street to see some of the events happening during Christmasville. We had the pleasure of walking through the City Club of Rock Hill and giving a present to a worker there. While walking out of the City Club we were able to look at Bricks for Kids, a Lego display and contest. We saw many Christmas themed displays made out of Legos made by children from the ages of 6 to 11. The kids really enjoyed looking at those. We also saw many people setting tables and hotdog stands to sell different handmAde items. If you are looking for something to do tonight, please come out to Christmasville and enjoy the Christmas parade which begins at 6:30 tonight! Be sure to bundle up for this cold weather!Have a great weekend!imageDrinking banana strawberry smoothie!

Fire http://freedommontessori.org/2014/10/15/fire/ http://freedommontessori.org/2014/10/15/fire/#comments Thu, 16 Oct 2014 00:34:56 +0000 http://freedommontessori.org/?p=1927 Read more]]> Today we enjoyed a special visit from some of the Rock Hill firefighters! They talked to us about staying safe when there is a fire and what to do if there is a fire at our house. Firefighter Chris even put on his firefighter uniform for us to see how he changes from a regular person to a firefighter. Even though he had on that heavy uniform and oxygen mask we learned to not to be afraid of him because he was the same person. After discussing about fire safety, we got the chance to look and walk through the fire truck! The kids had a great time with learning about different parts of the fire truck and seeing the lights flash and siren blaring as the firefighters drove away!!! Much thanks to them!!

Finally Friday… http://freedommontessori.org/2014/10/10/finally-friday/ http://freedommontessori.org/2014/10/10/finally-friday/#comments Fri, 10 Oct 2014 17:48:04 +0000 http://freedommontessori.org/?p=1882 Read more]]> We had a great day with Ms. Dawkins, one of our teachers from Encore!! We enjoyed a sweet oranges brought in by our friend, Faye! The kids are doing an awesome job with learning how to do things on their own. Today many of them chose to peel their oranges or “cuties” by themselves! They absolutely love being independent! This week we learned a little bit about fire safety. We learned that we stay away and do not touch things that are hot, for example, the stove or oven, matches or candles. We read about about firefighters and how they save and help those with fires in there homes or buildings! We are still working on our sounds, “m”, “b” and “a”. We are working on tracing them and using them in our sign language! Another new lesson this week was our “Five Little Pumpkins” song! We love to use a Pumpkin puppets to go along with it! I will send home a copy of this song sometime next week!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and don’t forget their is NO SCHOOL for students on Monday, but we will have Parent Teacher conferences!!
