We have been quite busy here in our classroom. This past week we have been working on developing our fine motor muscles by cutting with scissors to make snowflakes, as well as by using toothpicks to poke holes along the letters in our names.
We also spent quite a bit of time conducting an experiment with blue, black and white paint. We learned new vocabulary words such as lighter, darker, absorb, mixing, swirling and transforming! We discovered when we add black paint to the blue, it gets darker… and that adding white paint to the blue makes it lighter.
Things have been going quite smoothly with our weekly homework bags. The children have been coming to school and telling me all about the fun and excitement they are having with their families. A few of you have shared pictures of your children completing the activities. A few of you have been concerned about pieces that are missing. Missing pieces are going to happen. All I ask is that you keep looking for the piece(s) and when you find it, bring it back in so we can put that bag back into rotation again.
Our annual winter parent fair at Cotter is coming up on Wednesday December 19th at 10:15 AM!
