Learning | To use her words (kind and gentle words, in a calm voice). To deal with the fact that moms say no. To make choices. To follow directions. It's been a rough month with tantrums like we haven't seen since she was two.
Listening | Bruno Mars, Uptown Funk. Katy Perry, Roar. Macklemore, Can't Hold Us. 12 Days of Christmas.
Creating | Lots of little slips of paper as she practices with scissors. Valentine's art. Clay dinosaur. Loads of laundry. Her own way in the world.
Loving | Maggie the cat. Being Star of the week at Preschool. Snappy Dragon Chinese restaurant.
Reading | Dr. Seuss, Skippy Jon Jones, Little Golden Books
Playing | Board games; Go Fish, Spot It Jr., and Candyland. Outside; she reports it as the favorite part of her school day, and requests trips to the park on weekends.
Watching | SesameStreet.org video clips, Fresh Beat Band, Annie, The Wizard of Oz.
Practicing | Swimming! June graduated from seahorse class to frog class this month. She worked really hard to learn the crawl stroke and back stroke. She also started "ballerina classes" at the Creative Dance Center on Saturday mornings. So far, it is a lot of galloping around with scarves, and it is super fun to watch her go.
