New context for the “Jump, Jump” song – It’s still very early in the year, but our Seashells have already really taken to this favorite gross motor activity that also teaches children the names of their friends. It goes, “Jump, jump…..(child name), Jump, jump……jump, jump….., we’re glad you’re here today. It’s clearly portable, as while playing inside because of rain we realized the ballet barre also gives the children body awareness – the opportunity to watch themselves as they jump (and giggle)

Everyone has been posting their flood pictures; here are a couple of ours – thanks to our wonderful teachers, the children had a great day with no idea whatsoever what was going on behind the scenes! The Seashell classroom has been renamed “Niagara Falls South.” Hopefully, folks in Louisiana will make it through today all right.

First day jitters have subsided, children are happy, teachers are relieved, and you would think we’d been at school for a month. We’ve had a busy day so far – Seashells and Sunflower children found 3 gigantic slugs on the playground, and the Butterfly class made a special playpen out of blocks for our visiting guinea pig. Everyone is learning routines, making new friends, and getting used to being away from home after summer vacation. We are looking forward to a great year.
