We had such an amazing week together this week!
Monday was hat day. We started off reading The Cat in the Hat by Dr. Seuss. We continued on to discover fun and interesting ways to balance our bodies like the Cat does in the story. During our small group instruction time, we tried to see how tall we could build the Cat’s hat!
We started out alternating red cups and white cards…
When the towers kept breaking, the children tried different ways to make the bases more sturdy…
When some of them continued to break, the children got really crafty and chose to get the glue bottles and glue sticks from the art area!
On Tuesday we had Wear Your Words day! We all wore as many words and letters as we could! We read the story 1 Fish 2 Fish Red Fish Blue Fish by Dr. Suess and then pretended to swim like fish! We also had different color gold fish crackers that we sorted and graphed by color. Once we sorted we practiced some data analysis skills and compared with colors had more and less than the others.
During our Daily 5 time, Rayann read the children the story Brown Bear Brown Bear What Do You See!
Wednesday was Wacky Wednesday!
Everyone dressed silly and acted silly all day long!
We signed in on pieces of paper that had been taped to the under-side of the tables! For small group time we held plastic writing papers up to our face while a friend tried to trace our facial features and make us look silly! We also got to turn a table upside down, cover it in plastic wrap and paint all morning!
Last but not least, today was Pajama Day! Some of the children brought in some rhyming items to share with the class: (Sock/Rock, Bug/Mug, Dish/Fish, Quack/Black, Star/Car, Block/Rock).
We read the story There’s a Wocket in my Pocket by Dr. Seuss.
During rest time, the children were able to rest and read their books in the dark with their flashlights.
Esma read the story Little Red Hen to the class during Daily 5 today!
What a great week we had!!
Just a reminder, next week there is NO SCHOOL for Spring Break. Please use this time to wash EVERYTHING (jackets, hat, gloves, blankets, backpacks etc…) to help keep our classroom germ free when we come back to school.
