We are approaching the end of the Spring session of Toddler Time! I had a very small but very well-behaved crowd today.

CALM DOWN RHYME:
Last time we did bubbles in Toddler Time, it was a little chaotic. This time, it was much better! Before I started the bubbles, I explained to the toddlers that we’d have to take turns and share the bubbles with one another. While there were a few toddlers who were trying to hog all the bubbles, most of them took turns popping and were very considerate to others during the bubble popping.
CHILDREN, CHILDREN TURN AROUND
HOW IT WENT:
It ran a little short (I could have extended it by blowing more bubbles, but I ran out). However, everyone really loved the peek-a-boo rhymes, and even some of the more rambunctious toddlers listened and participated during the stories, so I would say that this theme is great for toddlers! I would definitely use everything again in the future, and maybe just add a few more peek-a-boo rhymes.
