Pink Kangaroo Weekly Update

Week of January 25th

What we are learning....

This week we introduced the letter "M." We learned all about mirrors, mailboxes, milk, mops and so much more!!! We even got to make muffins in our classroom!! Each kangaroo helped stir the batter and pour in ingredients. It was a blast and everyone enjoyed eating them for dessert!!

In addition to the letter M we introduced the number two. We continue to work on counting.

We made maracas out of rice, beans and Easter eggs! They are the perfect instrument to any song---the Kangaroos so enjoyed shaking them!

To help with name recognition, the kangaroos got to decorate place mats which will be used during snack and lunch. The place mats have their name written on them and the kangaroos decorated them with fun stickers!

Finally, we had the kangaroos work on sorting by color with M&Ms! Of course they loved this activity!!!

We have been singing all of our favorite "M" songs--Five Little Monkeys Jumping On The Bed, Five Little Monkeys Swinging From A Tree and The Muffin Man.

Books we have read this week:
