March 31-April 4
Each week the students make a class book highlighting the letter of the week. You may take these books home to read with your child. Simply sign out the book and sign it back in when you return it. The books are in cardboard holders on the sand table. Meg and I will be happy to show you our creative class books!
Caterpillars and Praying Mantis
A Fun Week
The letter Ss
We started the week with Monday Math. The children rotated through 6 math stations. The focus was number recognition and one to one correspondence. Ms. Ann Marie brought a puppy from SAVE Animal Shelter and cheerio bird feeders were made to hang in the tree outside the classroom window.
Tuesday was all about snakes. The children made number snakes that allowed them to demonstrate their knowledge of the numbers 11-20. Each student developed their own pattern to decorate a letter S to look like a snake. We even had real snake skin to touch!
Wednesday we exploded a bar of soap! This would be fun to do at home too. Put a bar of ivory soap in the microwave for 2 minutes. The students made their S class book. It is titled, On Top of Spaghetti. Ask you child to sing you the song, On Top of Spaghetti, it is a class favorite. You can find a cute cartoon of this song on YouTube.
Thursday...The children had a sky snack (blue jello, cool whip, and a star fruit). Thank you to Isabela's mom for bringing us so many snacks that begin with the letter S. Our windows are so beautifully decorated with sun catchers and the handprint sun is magnificent.
Friday was a day of spiders and spider webs. We explored different numbers we can add together to get 8. (spiders have 8 legs)
