M is for Mom, D is for Dad. F is for Family

Today we talked about our birthdays, traced them, and wrote them. Two of our friends' birthdays are only two days apart in May! We talked more about our families and began making our paper families by decorated paper cutouts with the letter 'M' (for mom), and the letter 'D' (for dad). 

 On Friday we talked about our favorite things. We spent some time with Mrs. Burns looking for pictures of things we loved and then glued to our picture frame!

We even had some fun with shaving cream this week!

Have a great weekend!

The last post has been updated with new photos to include our friend who was out sick! He made his own colorful shadow too! Click here to check it out!

More 'All About Me'!

Today we painted our outlined selves! We picked our favorite colors and had a blast!

Later we went on a letter/word hunt through magazines! Some of us were looking for letters in our names, and others were looking for describing words!

It's 'All About Me' Week!

This week's theme is all about me! We are learning new things about ourselves and our friends through various activities. Today we traced ourselves for an upcoming surprise! The theme carried over into math as we talked about our birthdays, wrote our numbers, and counted objects that we loved! During reading and language we talked about describing words and what we like most about being ourselves!

We missed our classmate, T, today! We hope you are feeling better!!

Pinwheels for 'Whirled' Peace

Since the beginning of the school year we have been working on our beautiful pinwheels with Ms. Donze in art class. Once they were complete we were invited to participate in Pinwheels for 'Whirled' Peace with the entire school. Our pinwheels stayed on display all day (and into the next week!)

F is for Fizz!

Since this week's letter is 'F' we decided to make Fizz! We worked on fine motor control with our eye droppers, as well as letter sounds, color identification, and following directions. We did a great job and had a blast making Fizz!

Making a School During LT

We worked hard to put together a house during our LT lesson this week. We worked with colors, shapes, following steps and directions, and fine motor skills.
