Little Lambs

Hello and happy Friday!

We had a short but sweet week in the Little Lamb classroom!

We continued our ABC Hand Print project with the letter “B!”  The teacher painted our hands yellow with black stripes.  We pasted on two eyes, a nose, and two wings.  Can you guess what we made?  Bzzz!  We made buzzing bees for the letter “B!”  “B” says “buh buh” baby, ball, boots, bell, bed!  We colored a butterfly in the shape of a “B” too!  Beautiful work!

For our Halloween theme we made pumpkin picture frames!  We painted paper plate frames orange and pasted on a brown felt stem and a curly green vine too!  Let’s take pictures in our Halloween costumes to put in our picture frames!  We also did a spider worksheet.  Our spiders were black with eight fuzzy legs.  On the backs of the spiders were white circles so we took colorful circle stickers to match and stick to the white circles.

We also went over the number 1!  We practiced counting and colored one big yellow sun!

Gruesome great job this week, Little Lambs!

Keep up the good work and we’ll see you next week!

Busy Bees

Hello and happy Friday!

It’s the second week of October and the Busy Bees class continues to learn and explore new things based from our theme, “Fall”.

The Busy Bees started the week learning about pumpkins. They were shown two different pictures of a pumpkin. The first one is the “Kabocha” or what we call "Japanese winter squash” that is common in Japan, and the other one is the big, orange pumpkin that we use as a decoration for Halloween. They were also shown pictures of the inside of the pumpkin, and they learned that pumpkins are vining crops. That means, they don’t grow in trees! For the activity, we made marble painting pumpkins! Although it was a little bit messy, the kids had fun!

We also started making our Trick or Treat Baskets. We used paper bowls, painted them orange, and waited for them to get dry. Then we added some eyes, noses and mouths for our Jack o Lantern Baskets. 

For the letter craft, the letter for this week is Ee. E is for egg, eye, and elephant.  We made an elephant craft and did some letter E writing worksheets. 

Good job kids!

Have a nice weekend and see you all next week!

Ready Rabbits/Clever Cats

Hello and happy Friday!

We have a new friend in the RR class. His name is Shinji and he is from New York. He joined our class from this week. Let's welcome Shinji and his family to the J's community! Yeah!!

With Halloween coming around the corner, the RR/CC class was busy this week making "witches" out of paper plates, egg carton, paints and construction paper. They were able to practice their fine motor skills using scissors for this project. The witches actually came out to be spooky cute!

On Wednesday, our theme day, we talked about "germs" and why we don't share our germs. We learned how to cough and sneeze using our elbow and also learned how to wash hands while singing the alphabet song. The alphabet song is the right length of time for kids to wash hands "clean". We even got nail brush to wash our nails clean too! The teacher also came around with a spray bottle and pretended that she was sneezing in our faces. Everyone thought it was fun but remember if that was real sneeze, all of the germs will be going into your face! Yucky! You will get sick too!

Now the RR/CC class knows to use their elbow when sneezing and coughing! Good job kids!

We have PTC on Saturday! See you then!
