Their weekly theme was snow. At the writing center, kids wrote about a picture showing a snowball fight. They made snowflakes with pattern blocks at the block center. They made "snowball" sight words by covering the sight words with round white stickers at the fine motor center. The kids listened to Snow Friends at the Listening Center and drew a picture of their favorite character. The Telian sound they were focusing on this week was "s" and the kids worked with straws, scissors and string to make bracelets and necklaces. At the handwriting center, the kids practiced writing the letters Kk & Tt.
