As I have started a new journey into childcare I triple as a student, nanny, and a developmental therapist. The days start with ... and they NEVER end.
Did you know when vinegar and baking soda combine, a gas forms and the pressure exerted is strong enough to blow up a balloon? Grab a few household items and watch a balloon self-inflate with this cool craft project and science experiment rolled into one!
To do list!
Continued #emotion activities
Lately the attitudes and emotional roller coaster around our house has spiked (BIG TIME)! Moving into more sensitive points in our lives; weather change, schedule change, family change (new baby),etc. I felt it was only right to come up with a way so each child could communicate their feelings (visually). This is a task we must repeat 3x daily.
The above are pictures I thought almost for my ideas…but I will post my pictures after we complete these task!
The children kept asking “is Halloween coming up soon???”. I just want to point out.. WHATEVER material I have I WILL USE!
So we have paper plate faces and pumpkin faces. Simply teaching just how the faces appear when we feel different emotions.
As we are already 4days into the 9th month of 2014 I am excited to start stage one of #themes .
Septembers #theme is brought to you by my 3 year old that confuses “screaming and shouting ‘I said I want some skittles’ ” with the honey emotion of “it makes me sad that you aren’t giving me exactly what I ask for when I ask for it”!
