Rosca De Reyes in Room 4

 Look! He found the baby!  We have been learning all about the role of the wise men in the Story of Jesus birth. Today and tomorrow we will be celebrating Rosca De Reyes (King’s Day). In Mexico this is the traditional celebration of the Wise men arriving with gifts for the infant King. Rosca De Reyes is January 6.

Traditionally, if you find the baby you are responsible for feeding the group next month at the same time. 😉(no pressure, families! 😜)

No Rainy Day Blues…JUST MOVES!

Room 1 enjoyed a game of 4 corners! This was a fun way for us to get our indoor wiggles out!

We danced to the music but when the music stopped we had 3 seconds to find a corner. If the giant die rolled our number we sat out for one round. This is a great way to practice cooperative skills in a large group setting.

  
   
We kicked it up a notch with finger lights! 

  
  

   
 
 
We worked on gross motor movement, coordination, and listening skills!
