Blake has been exploring the books this week! He has been enjoying almost every book in the case and loves to listen to different books at group time! When we read books in group he is always the first to sit and listens contently to each page.
He has also been exploring the musical instruments we had out. He really seemed to enjoy the piano's in the room and played with these for some time. When another child wanted to join he happily shared the piano and was able to work together with the other child to play music. This shows us his ability to work well with others and his ability to share the objects in the room!
Blake also found the shakers in the room and was very interested in these. He moved the shaker in all directions and looked through the openings to see all the objects inside. He realized that these made music when he shook them and found the mirror on one of the sides.
On the same subject, we were just informed that Blake is ready to move up to the wobbler room as "school"...although I am sad for him to leave his current classmates and teachers...I am proud of him for being a big boy. Technically he isn't supposed to move up until he is 24 months (which would be December), but I guess that he is ready now! I would rather have him with the older kids anyway, I think that he will learn more from being with them..and I bet that it will expand his vocabulary as well. I am just really sad for him to leave his teachers that he has been with for 9.5 months!! They have been so great to him!
