I didn't have staff meeting this week so, once again no Monday with Mimi. However, Mimi decided to come observe school and play today! She liked watching what we did for school, and Cricket LOVED showing off for her. In addition to what we had planned for the day, Mimi brought some prizes with her.
She brought me our old set of Childcraft "Encyclopedias" and I'm hoping these will be a rich resource. Mimi and Cricket had fun looking through the animal book today!
She also brought Cricket a set of interchangeable letter stamps, and we tested out the A stamp. We will use these other prizes another day: a perfection game; miniatures (for an eye spy bottle); and play money.
After going through these goodies and finishing school we all played hide and seek together. Cricket needs to work on her hiding skills though. She giggles the entire time she is hiding, and today she was so excited she ran into her easel trying to hide under it. She didn't even realize she had bumped her noggin pretty good until I "found" her, because she was to busy playing.
After a few minutes on Mimi's lap with on ice pack while mommy read she was ready to go again. So we measured her for her costume that Mimi is making! While measuring we talked about how to measure, inches, feet, and I even worked the concept of zero in there!
