Leo’s day

Leo is new to the toddler room, just starting his third week.  

He had a fun morning today, and there was lots of laughing and jumping going on in the room.

First he went running to the book corner to join three boys who were playing with the cushions. They were throwing them up in the air and laughing every time the cushions fell on their heads.

Later, Leo went to our toy garage and played with the cars there for a long time, making engine noises.

After a while, Leo took one of the cars with him back to the book corner, but this time decided to choose a book. He looked at the pictures while holding the car in his hand. I went over to Leo and asked if he’d like me to read to him. Leo gave me the book straight away and I sat next to him, reading it out loud while he pointed at the pictures. This will really help him with his speech and literacy development

At lunch time, all the children sat down next to each other. Leo, still clutching his car, sat next to his friend. One of the staff put Leo’s apron on, and asked if she could have the car, which Leo then gave to her. Leo waited patiently for his plate and was asked to say “thank you”. When he got his food, Leo said "Ta!", with a big smile on his face.
