Happy Ground hog day ! now we live in Minnesota and it does not matter we will have more then 6 weeks of winter ! but he a cute little Phil and a great way to talk about shadows .
We had an out side guess today so we did not do a lot of ground hogs day .
Yesterday at circle time we started playing with shadows my three's and fours get it my two year old no so much .
Today we will read Huff and puff on Groundhog Day from The best of totline Totline books .
I folded a paper plate in 1/2 and a copy of ground hog pattern from totline to make the groundhog shadow appear and disappear to help tell the story .
So no exciting pictures today . We also have some pictures to match to there shadow .
So thought i show more of my Environment .Here is the play kitchen Dramatic play area . This kitchen getting to be around 10 years old and is very much used . As you see we have white three draw storage label for the food and dishes to be easily put away .
I am also showing you one of the mosted used toys in my childcare . It the Lego table it 17 years old . It is used from children 1 year to 12 years easily and used every day . It has a nice storage to it also . (why i love it )
The middle picture just a large view . As a home childcare with out a Childcare space i still try to have section area for my children . Blocks (which is coming maybe Sunday ) reading , dramatic play (which i just divide up here in January ) just for a change i think i added them together again . And so on. It does make storage and clean up easy .
