Week in Review

We had a busy week this week!
we did lots of easter-related activities and went swimming!

-we practiced sorting colors and using bar graphs by sorting and graphing jelly beans.

-we got to have outdoor recess twice thanks to the beautiful weather this week!

-we practiced using our fine motor skills,e like using tweezers/pinchers and crossing the mid-line of the body, by filling up easter eggs with special treats for our easter egg hunt. our occupational therapist, mrs. britt, came down to help us.

-we had an easter egg hunt on the playground! it was so much fun finding eggs.

-the easter bunny visited our classroom! he left us stuffed animals and cupcakes.

-we made ourselves into easter bunnies! we did a craft with our pictures on a bunny template and glued cotton balls on.
-we went swimming at hype and had an absolute blast!

 

have a great spring break!
i will see you all when we return on april 9th!

Week in Review

we had a somewhat quiet (as quiet as a k-1 classroom with 11 very energetic children can be😉) because a lot of our friends were at home sick.
if your child is sick, it is very important to keep them home from school until they have been symptom free for 24 hours.
when your child is sick, they are at risk for spreading their germs to other children in the classroom.
the school nurse wrote a document that explains when a child should stay home from school and when it is okay to return.
here are the links:
