Social Butterflies

Over the past couple of weeks we have been noticing a great deal of social development within our classroom.  Many of our friends are speaking more and becoming more aware of the other children around them.  It is exciting to see our children growing and learning to interact with each other on a more in depth level.

This young lady is being a great friend by playing nicely.
We love to see how gentle the older children are with the youngest member of our classroom.

Learning to share can be difficult at times, but these two children make it look so easy!

Snack time is a perfect time for our children to interact with one another.
It is great to see each child showing respect by creating their own personal space and staying within it as they eat.

It's Apple Time!

Throughout the week we talked about apples.  We saw pictures of apples and played with our felt apples in the classroom.  Ms. Penny then brought in actual apples and the real fun began!

Showing great coordination, I was able to hold two apples and walk  around the room.

We used problem solving skill to figure out what exactly we could do with the apples.
I found that it makes a great ball for rolling.

We discovered when we ate the apples they were very tasty!
