One of my favorite things about co op is exposing my son to different lessons, books, activities, and teaching styles as we move from host to host.
One of my other favorite things is that we divide the work, and it's nice to have a good chunk of my work out of the way!
This week, we moved to a new host, Miss C.
We started with some great free play activities. Everything was new and exciting to Colin, which I think is why he feel asleep for nap so easily today!
Fishing Sensory Activity
Miss C switched up our circle time format and I was amazed at how long she engaged the kids. She has a much calmer demeanor than I do and it seemed to work great! We sang our welcome song, our name song, the itsy bitsy spider, where is thumbkin and a new song about a turtle.
Next it was time for books! This is where I think Miss C really excelled. Where there were some classes I barely managed to get through one book, she got through three of them!
I had never read Silly Sally before and it was a cute story.
Chicka Chicka Boom Boom is on our bookshelf. For the longest time I couldn't stand the story and I can't remember exactly why. The kids loved it today.
Our Art activity was to make a coconut tree for the letters.
We did snack after the activity, including alphabet graham crackers.
It was a great class and Colin is excited to go back next week, or as he told me after class "Let's just stay here until next class."
