All About the Week

Hello~

Sorry about the lack of pictures this week. Our week was so busy I didn't get a chance to take any pics!!! We were busy making lots of Christmasy Crafts and ornaments for our tree. We continued to learn about our 5 senses. This week we focused on our sense of taste and sense of hearing. We out our taste buds to work on Wednesday with a tasting party. We tried lemon (sour), M&Ms (sweet), Pretzels (salty), and Bakers Chocolate (bitter). The baker's chocolate didn't taste exactly like they thought it would, so we had some pretty shocked faces after trying it. Then Friday we put our hearing to work by guessing different sounds. We met Andy Apple and learned about the letter A. In math we learned about the number 10 and comparing ( more and less).


On Wednesday, we had our fine motor night at the school. We sent home the 3 packets that we gave out that night yesterday. Please consider doing some of these activities with your child. Fine Motor strength if SO SO crucial to skills such as writing!
