Do You Know the Magic Words?

Miss Jean   April 14, 2016   Comments Off on Do You Know the Magic Words?

Miss Jean read “The Berenstain Bears Please & Thank You Book” by Mike Berenstain and “May I Please have a Cookie?” by Jennifer Morris to the Lap-Sit children this morning!  Both Mama Bear and Mommy Alligator baked cookies in these stories.  But the Berenstain Bear Children and Alphie Alligator had to remember the polite way to ask for a cookie.  When they remembered their manners, they used the magic words: “Please, Thank You and You are welcome”

We pretended making cookies out of play dough.  The kid had a good time rolling out the dough with their rolling-pins and cutting and shaping each one just right.  We had all shapes, sizes and kinds (chololate chip, sprinkle, plain, oreo and more) of cookies.   Of course we pretended to eat our cookies.   After we cleaned up, the kids enjoyed eating a ‘REAL” cookie.

Congratulations to the Younger Family on the birth of their baby boy and brother!  He slept through the whole thing!

Love is in the air!

Miss Jean   February 11, 2016   Comments Off on Love is in the air!

We had a great group for our Lap-Sit Story Time today.  It’s almost Valentine’s Day, so we talked a about love and how you show your love through Valentines.  Miss Jean read the books “I Love My Mommy Because” and ” I Love my Daddy Because,” written by Laurel Porter-Gayloard.  The books  tell all the ways that mommies and daddies love there children; and that ‘love’ is pictured not only with children, but with various animals and their babies.

We drew a heart shape by following the letters of the alphabet and decorated them with stickers and crayon, designing our very own Valentines.  Happy Valentine’s Day to everyone!
