Today we celebrated the start of 2013 by making ourselves into fireworks (sort of). We added a Happy New Year hat to our smiling faces (photo) and even ordered numbers 1-10. Some of us even counted backwards as they do on New Year's Eve. We worked on our fine motor skills, number sequencing, color identification, and problem solving.
It was a short week, but we sure did a lot (and had fun!)
We have a fun new game of matching color sight words on snowmen to their matching buttons and top hats.

We had a great time at recess again today! We are looking forward to being able to go on the playground as soon as the snow melts.
