First Day of School

C was excited about starting school today.  He has been asking for weeks when we would start.  The early arrival of “Sissy” meant postponing the first day for a few weeks.  

We started with circle time.  We sang “Today is Monday” & made up our own song with C’s favorite foods.  We sang the months of the year song & talked about September.  We acted out a story with his stuffed animals. He reviewed letters with a salt tray & drew some pictures as well of course.  This afternoon, we studied the phases of the moon and read “The Moon seems to Change.”  He created the phases with Oreos (some were eaten, of course).  We also used a flashlight to show how the sun’s rays illuminate the moon in its different positions.
