Our 4 Bees!
We adapted our 4 Bees and made them work for our classroom. Check out what we came up with!
The Name Game!
Every morning each child switches his/her name from the "Home" column to the "School" column. In the beginning it was a challenging task! Now, after a couple of weeks of practice we see our kids excelling in this activity. Proud teachers say me...ME!
So we are taking it to the next level: tracing!Tracing our names was so much fun! We had multiple opportunities to practice with different tracing activities in different centers.
By the end of the year we will be experts for sure!

Take a look at some of their art work.
Where does it belong?
We ended up playing "Where does it belong?" as a whole group.
Ms. Jasury and Ms. Dani took a bunch of stuff from our classroom and placed them on our rug. Each child has to chose one thing and put it back where it belonged.
It sound easier than it actually is! You can try it at home and see!
Ignacio's mom (Rita, but we all know after having kids you are "somebody's mom") came into our classroom and helped us make Modeling Clay.
It was a blast!
We divided into 3 groups and made clay from scratch. We mixed, measured and poured ingredients, and decorated the clay with glitter.
Thanx Ms. Rita, you were great!
Getting to know our Library
The mouse went up the clock
We discussed time, numbers, schedules and mice. We had many brilliant ideas for how to use a clock.
Here is a sneak peak at some of the activities related to this theme:
- We practiced the rhyme using props
- We used pattern blocks to build numbers from 1 -5
- We talked about our schedule and kept track of our day
- We played with a timer in Discovery
- We used a countdown timer to see if we could stand on one foot for 15 seconds
So many things...one short rhyme!
This are our mice
Keeping our classroom healthy!
Please remember that children should not be at school if they are unwell or recovering from any illness. If a child is unwell we advise they should remain at home to rest and recover. We would recommend children be fever free, or free from stomach sickness or similar illness before returning to school. We appreciate your assistance in keeping our classroom happy and healthy for your child to enjoy.
