Nursery Rhymes

Over the past few weeks the children have been learning some new nursery rhymes.  They have sang them over and over and were even given a chance to act them out!

Math, Science and More!!

The children have been working really hard on their math skills. During a couple activities this week they practiced counting, one to one, sorting and using math words such as more, less and equal.  Science was also brought into these activities.  The children made predictions, experimented and discussed their findings. All this was done while building their hand muscle by using eye droppers and tweezers to complete the activities.  This will help with proper pencil grip as well as more controlled handwriting.  Who knew so much could be accomplished while having fun!!!!

Literacy

Following our parent meeting about literacy, I wanted to show families how we are teaching literacy here in the classroom.

We write for fun using materials such as paint, shaving cream and chalk.

      

    

 

The children have also been building letters using straight and curved lines as well as playdoh!

        

Here is a look at Daily 5!

                       

 

Writing

Over the past couple of weeks our focus has been on writing.  The children have had several opportunities throughout the day to work on their writing.  As the children arrive in the morning, they are asked to sign in. During small group we have used finger paint as well as dry erase markers and boards to practice our writing skills. Please encourage your children to write at home.  All them the opportunity by including them in making grocery lists and writing out recipes!

Week 7

This week the children were very interested in nature.  They started noticing the different changes happening outside.  Because of this, we went for a nature walk around the neighborhood. The children collected different leaves, seeds, pine cones, flowers, grass and sticks.

After our walk, we cam back to the class and discussed our findings as well as made a nature collage using the material found on the walk.
