It was another big day in kindergarten. Today was the day that the kids began their unit "All about Me". The unit is kicked off by making rice babies. Each child (with help) fills a man's tube sock with rice to the weight he/she was at birth. Then the parents help zip tie them and the remaining portion on top is sewn down to make the baby's cap. We added eyes, hair, bows, and wrote the child's information on each little rice baby. The kids will spend the next two weeks taking care of this baby and learning many new things all related to them and how they've grown and changed. It was such a wonderful day!
All the parents that helped loved it as much as the kids. We all drifted back to those terrific memories of the day our precious gifts were born.
