We had a big group this morning. I looked around the room at 10:00 and thought it was going to be really big after people who were running late arrived. To my delight, there were only a handful of people running late today. Almost everyone was in the room ready to begin at 10:00. Thank you for putting in the effort to get here on time!
I knew I would be reading a book that was unfamiliar to many people, and the text was a bit confusing. Great choice for a large group of toddlers (I say sarcastically.)
Because I knew it would be difficult, I projected some memory aids on the wall. A child is sent to the store to get 6 farm fresh eggs, a cake for tea, a pound of pears and bacon. We referred back to my list (with pictures for each item) when the boy got too forgetful. Spoiler alert: He really did a great job, except he forgot the bacon.
I told the children that I was sure they could remember to buy something the next time they went to the grocery store – whether by using their memories or by drawing a picture of an item.
