Edith's Playgroup Fall 2016
In an attempt to find some kind of structure for Edith this year, we signed her up for the Union Church Playgroup in Bay Ridge. This meets once a week. Edith was in the 3s and 4s class, and it is a 2 hour class. It's not drop - off, so I stayed with her. The kids were pretty consistent so she made some sweet little friends!
The playgroup is really great. There's a huge basement filled with toys and the kids free- play for one hour. Then they have a snack period, storytime and then they do "concepts" in circle time (matching, sequencing, etc).
After circle time there's usually some songs/dance, then table toys and the "run around" which is hilarious. The kids run in a circle for 5 minutes to a song and they LOVE it.
Afterwards they get suckers and hand-stamps. Edith had never had a sucker before this and she loves them.
Here in circle time, Edith told me she had "FIVE hands!"
During the week of Halloween, Edith learned to trick-or-treat and it was so cute!
They had a cookie party at Christmas and the kids were so sugared-up that storytime was a little crazy!
I have been really thankful for this once a week thing that is just for my girl. She's grown so much in just a few months, and I can see progress in her attention span, willingness to wait her turn and work with friends. I am excited to continue this for her next year!
