I used to be a baby
We started talking about babies after one of our friends said " I used to be a baby."
This led to a number of discussions about babies. We asked the class to tell us something they knew about babies. They said things like, "babies can't talk", "they stay still", "they can't walk" ," if no one is in the house with them they would cry".
We put baby pictures of all our friends up on our wall. The children found themselves and they tried to find all their friends.
We introduced some new babies into our classroom. We talked about how babies need to be handled gently. They need to be fed, changed and be given lots of love.
All these conversations led us to realize just how big we are now. My friends can feed themselves, use the potty and so much more! We used to be babies but we're not any more.
