Farthest-Welcome to the Burns Bowl!

This week one of our concepts was "Farthest". In order to reinforce the concept, and make a real life connection, we had a contest to see who could throw the farthest! With this weekend's big game approaching, what better theme of a contest than football. Welcome to the Burns Bowl!

Threaded Hearts & Photo Booths

We worked hard on our fine motor skills to make our pretty laced hearts. We worked on the concept of "through" while threading our hearts! 

First we painted our hearts....

Then we laced our hearts by going "through" and "around" our hearts with our strings.

Later we did a Valentine's Photo Booth!

G is for Groundhog

G is for Groundhog...and so much more! Today we read Ten Grouchy Groundhogs, a story about a bunch of fun groundhogs preparing for their trip out on Groundhog Day. Each set of Groundhogs has a great G descriptive word. We used our favorite to describe our very own. We made a shadow out of our groundhogs, then decorated them with our chosen "G"!

This activity was helped us with our letter sounds, descriptive language, fine motor control, and following directions.

First we painted around our groundhogs to create our shadows.
