Building Blocks & Literacy
Pattern blocks are so much fun!
This time we used pattern blocks to construct our initials and even some patterns.
Riding with Ms. Sharon!
We chose the book Two at the Zoo to practice our retelling. We read the book in Group Time and talked about the setting, characters and plot.
We placed a Story Box in the Library Area and ask the children to retell the story in their own words using the props in the box.
It was a great activity!
In this center we will integrate Science-Technology-Engineering-Math (STEM). “There are no greater natural scientists and engineers then young children. Inquisitive learners who learn STEM concepts through play. High quality early learning environments provide children with the structure in which to build upon their natural inclination to explore, to build, and to question.”-Chesloff
So this week we introduced Measuring Tape and Magnifying Glasses. We introduced a collection of familiar classroom items and magazines for them to explore.
We also practiced comparing and measuring blocks.
I was amazed with all the uses they discovered!
Stamping our names!
How works in our school?
I'm the Gingerbread Man!
Baking in our classroom
We mixed the dough, rolled out the batter and cutout our cookie men.
The next day, we ate our cookies and filled in the chart "What did you eat first?".
Jump the river
Some kids jumped with both feet, other used one. We all had lots of fun!
